Although I am not usually a fan of horror (having such a small threshold for anything scary), I like Foley's stories, many of which contain at least an element of horror. My favorite story is Ghost of the Bed and Breakfast. It was the perfect mix of creepy and suspenseful, with a ghost who (thankfully!) isn't scary, and with whom you can empathize. Other stories feature themes of faith (Sitting Silently in the Back Pew) and loss (The Monitor). All are equally enjoyable and promise to entertain readers.

I love this book of short stories. As a former high school English teacher I was always searching for material that would hold my students' attention. These short-stories did just that! We had great discussions over many of them and the students always were excited when I pulled out this book for the day's lesson. S. William Foley has a gift when it comes to writing short stories, they have many of the same elements as a great novel without dragging the story on for 100s of pages. My students loved that we could finish a story and have a discussion/debate all in the same class period.

The selection of short stories provides a broad spectrum of style and creative effort. The author exhibits his exceptional ability to present various short stories that will appeal to a diverse audience. Real-life drama and humor are cleverly balanced with fictional mystery and fantasy to make this a great read for anyone.
