    Filled with vivid and memorable images, and equipped with the fi

    Filled with vivid and memorable images, and equipped with the fictional warning that “effects are temporary and may be addictive,” A.F. Stewart’s Once Upon a Dark and Eerie presents tales with skillful stings appended, and a fine collection of brief dark eerie glimpses into the unknown. Haunting tragedy, lingering surprises, and short sharp shocks that succeed in being simultaneously complete and unfinished, all make for a book that can be picked up and put down at any time, a page per coffee cup perhaps. There’s a poetry selection at the end offering sometimes startlingly deep questions: “The truth shall set you free, but do you want to fly?” for example, asks if we wouldn’t rather hide in our “gilded cage;” then a well-crafted alphabet simply satisfies with gruesome fun. Short, fun reads in a short, fun collection with surprises for everyone.

    Disclosure: I won a free ecopy and enjoyed it.

    Living on the Dark Side

    Once Upon a Dark and Eerie. Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat

    The Artwork

    Through the smudged portal, I watched the eerie dancing lights.
    This was the third time my artwork, my mural, had come to life, but the first time it had opened a doorway to another dimension. In wondered why now, maybe it was because I had smeared the paint or maybe it was just evolving.
    Whatever the reason, the lights, those tiny bright fairies were beckoning.

    Haunted

    The moonlight illuminated the cemetery with an eerie glow, making shadows seemingly dance around Cheryl. Dark clouds swept past the pale orb; a storm was on the horizon.
    "I'm here. I'm waiting." Cheryl listened, but she heard no answer; there was simply the sound of the wind and approaching thunder. She sighed; she had been here an hour and still nothing.
    "What did I expect? I'm trying to talk to a dead man. I must be crazy to think it would work." She tried, but she couldn't stop the tears. "You promised you wouldn't leave me, even in death! You said you would stay, that spirits were real, that you would wait for me!"
    Thunder crashed and a few drops of rain fell; Cheryl turned and began to make her way from the cemetery.

    A strange glow appeared, whispering.
    "Don't go."
    The noise of the storm swallowed the words.

    I don't normally read nor do reviews on poetry. The main reason is that most of it makes no sense to me so it makes it hard to write a good review. Once Upon a Dark and Eerie. turned out to be different. It is extremely on the dark side but written in a style that I could actually picture most of what I read. So I have to admit that I kind of enjoyed reading Once Upon a Dark and Eerie. And just wait until you read Learn the Alphabet the Creepy Way!
