    A Very SPECIALIZED Anthology

    There are a lot of variations on a rather limited theme in this book, so it's not surprising that a number of authors in the book manage to hit on the same theme from time to time. But that shouldn't put you off from getting this book. Just don't read more than a story or two at a single sitting, and you'll be very satisfied. The best stories in the anthology are JUSTINE AND THE MOUNTIE by Kristin Britain, and SUBURBAN LEGEND by Donald J. Bingle.

    fine anthology

    The theme of this fine anthology is just what the title advertises, IMAGINARY FRIENDS, but with a fantasy or Twilight Zone twist that widens the scope of the collection. The compilation of all new tales is superb as each entry is well written with some being excellent. Person favorites include ¿A Good Day for Dragons¿ by Rick Hautala that kept me thinking of Pete¿s Dragon, ¿Best Friends Forever¿ by Tim Waggoner stars Biff the stuffed animal, ¿Images of Death¿ by Jim C. Hines as the title character is a best friend who reminds the little girl of a Muppet, and the moving tale of sibling love ¿Greg and Eli¿ by Paul Genesse. The remaining tales are all fun reminding readers of their own IMAGINARY FRIENDS. --- Harriet Klausner
