A refreshing and concise anthology--I enjoy "variety" in both life and literature, and I enjoy anthologies such as this one because of the diversity offered.

What an impressive anthology of stories. This collection contains short stories from a variety of genres and you're sure to discover talented new authors for your to-read list. I read it in a weekend and was always disappointed to finish a story, thinking the next one couldn't possibly reel me in as much as the previous one, but I was wrong. The Bestseller Bound collection had me hooked from page one until the end.

One of my short stories is featured in this collection, 'Flames'. My review does not include that story. This is a diverse collection of stories, there's something for everyone in this anthology. 'Wish Upon A Star' by Lainey Bancroft An insightful tale about a gifted singer who falls prey to the ravages of fame. Lainey is an author who understands the human psyche well. 'Tears For Hesh' by J. Michael Radcliffe An entertaining fantasy tale, containing wizards, magic, curses, and spells. Hesh is a likeable character and I felt compassion for him. Well written with a tragic twist. 'You Can Call Me Ari' by Darcia Helle A chilling, suspense story to keep you on the edge of your seat. By far the most vivid story in the collection. The descriptive quality of the writing pulls the reader in. Fans of Darcia's writing can be assured that even though this is just a short story it is just as scary as her novels! 'Minor Details' by Jaleta Clegg A humourous tale about two teenage girls, one of whom can't spell. This leads to an unfortunate turn of events (or, fortunate, depending on how you look at it!) A fun read. 'Ice Cream Man' by Neil Schiller Having read and enjoyed Neil's collection of short stories 'Oblivious', I was not disappointed by this story. It contains the same moody feel as much of his writing. It is in essence a poignant story of disappointment. 'No Eyes But Mine Shall See' by Sharon E. Cathcart Sharon Cathcart sets the scene well in this heartbreaking story of a love denied. I liked the descriptive quality of the writing. Much of the story is written in the form of a letter that will never be read, making it all the more heartrending. 'The First Texas Twister' by Magnolia Belle A fun and entertaining tale about how the Wild West collided with Native American culture to create the first tornado. 'Shadow Lantern' by Gareth Lewis An interesting concept. A short story told entirely through dialogue with no narrative. At first, I didn't think it would work, and must admit to being a bit confused as to which character was speaking at times. By the end, however, I found myself entertained by this fantasy tale. 'Stained' by Amy Saunders I hadn't read any of Amy's work before this short story, but now I will be seeking out more of her writing. I was very impressed by the way the author deals with the main character's emotions after a traumatic event. The tale is enthralling and the ending is moving. All believable characters. All in all, this is a great collection and a wonderful way to introduce readers to some very talented independent authors.

As I have a story in this anthology, my review applies to the other nine tales. The "Bestseller Bound Anthology" has something for everyone. Genres range among science fiction, modern romance, historical fiction, crime and Westerns ... with a few stops in between. There are no "duds" in this collection. My favorite story of the lot was "The First Texas Twister," which incorporates elements of Western and supernatural fiction. Well-done across the board and definitely worth your time to read.
