Sometimes they are just like ours - except landlocked countries may disappear overnight, marriages to camels are the norm, and the dead turn into musical instruments.

There is horror, and dreams fulfilled and squandered, and of true love. They do ...

    If I were to categorize my bookshelves by genre, then this collection of stories would simply have to dance from shelf to shelf. Some Bizarro, slipstream, humour, fantasy, horror, science fiction and just plain weird stories abound.



    You will have to form your own conclusions with many of the story endings because Sherman does not always hold your hand the whole way; if you cannot watch a film or read a book without being told absolutely everything then perhaps this is not the book for you.

    However, if you want to jump out of short story rut-land and you like a little bit of unpredictability read this and you will find not only weirdness galore but well written, compelling and sublimely realised stories.

    Received for an honest review on Darkness Beckons.

    This collection of short stories varies from the macabre to the horrific to the just plain odd.

    Vivid descriptions help place characters and settings into rather surreal worlds and/or situations.

    Characters vary from likeable to despicable, realistic to bizarre.

    Overall, an interesting read.
