    A great way to sample new authors

    Ten stories vary greatly from each other in genre and style of writing. Like with many anthologies I had my favorites and the ones that were obviously not "my cup of tea." Since the stories were not too long and it was obvious that all authors invested themselves and took great care and mastery to craft their pieces, I did not mind the ones I did not care for and enjoyed myself with the ones I clicked with. It was a great way for me to sample several new authors at once and to see if I wanted to be on a lookout for more books by them. I am happy to say that at least two, Wendy Swore and Rita J. Webb, caught my attention and I will be checking to see what they may come up with in the near future. I thought that Rita J. Webb's "Symbiote" was spectacular and had a novel potential. In fact, it is my hope that the author will one day expand it into a novel. I will be first to buy.

    I think the collection is well put together. I loved the "key" thread connecting all the stories. Because the genres vary so wildly from fantasy, to si-fi, to mystery, it will be easy for most readers to find an author they can connect with.
    Anthology is always a bit of an adventure, like putting a hand into a bag of prizes and hoping to get something you are familiar with and love, but also hoping for an unknown wild prize you never would have thought you could like. Here you get to keep all the prizes and, hopefully, discover a few new authors you may want to learn more about.

    I am one of the contributors to this anthology with the story, "Unlocking William". It was a great pleasure to collaborate with these talented writers on this project. I think any reader will find something new to explore here as well as a story to love in a favorite genre. This collection is assimilated especially for teens and young adults.
