For the most part, the stories weren't bad - though one or two weren't very good, either - but my biggest "gripe", which is why I marked it 2 stars instead of 3, is that the stores aren't all about other dimensions. I never considered the basic use of magic as being a story about other universes. Maybe it's just my perception. There were a few ghost stories, which were good. All in all, if this collection was $2.99, I'd gladly recommend it, but not at $7.99. Save your money.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Although readers would expect the thirteen contributions by a strong group of authors would be so similar the tales would trip over each other as how many thin veils and portals can there be. Instead the writers provided numerous ¿gateways¿ with many interpretations to what is and how to enter THE DIMENSION NEXT DOOR. Donald J. Bingle uses the net Lillian Stewart Carlisle¿s protagonist travels into the past Fiona Paton¿s young hero serves two Queen Elizabeths one in the sixteenth century and the other starting in 1953. Whether it is a different Ben Franklin (by Anton Stout) or just 'Unreadable books by Steven Schend, the path next door varies. Thus this themed anthology turns into a fresh enjoyable collection as the authors escort readers through thirteen different doors the right number of tales for a collection based on unexplained phenomena teasing and frightening our senses probably leaking from across the other side. --- Harriet KlausnerWas this review helpful?
