Just Another Day in Paradise

Life in the big city is not for the faint of heart.

Shadows lurk in sunlight; blood spills on floors; hope and dread are just two sides of a neon sign; and loneliness is a paper cut on the heart, an invisible wound that eventually kills. It has always been so, it always will—the past gave birth to the present, and the terrors recounted in fairy tales

Overview

Life in the big city is not for the faint of heart.

Shadows lurk in sunlight; blood spills on floors; hope and dread are just two sides of a neon sign; and loneliness is a paper cut on the heart, an invisible wound that eventually kills. It has always been so, it always will—the past gave birth to the present, and the terrors recounted in fairy tales and classic plays still have the power to frighten us today.

This is a newly curated collection of short stories featuring almost four dozen additional tales of apocalypses (zombie and otherwise), epiphanies, and discoveries in which Katherine Tomlinson explores the dark heart of urban living—the violence that seeps through walls like rancid cooking odors, the paranoia that grows in the dark, nurtured by guilt and grief; the retribution that strikes as suddenly and implacably as summer lightning.

It may not be beautiful, but it’s all we have and every day above ground is a victory. So take it one day at a time, one story at a time…Just Another Day in Paradise.

Great suspenseful/creepy short stories. I would like to read more from this author. I was surprised to see that the author is a woman, only because I usually get this genre from King, Koontz, etc. Well done, author.

Many of these stories are revenge oriented, with dark characters and bold plots. I really enjoy the various settings and delimas the main characters deal with. I like this female author writing male 1st person main chatacters as if she is in their heads. Characters are creepy, devilish, and morbid, depending on the story. All the characters are fun to read. Usually I find myself reading classics and murder mysteries, but I'm glad I downloaded this anthology. It has opened a different type of literature for me toconsider. I will be looking for more from this author.

but i didnt and was shocked by the first story that I read. Then I got the idea of the book and ironic doesnt begin to describe this book. While depressing, I absolutely loved it!

Its a collection of articles or short stories that is very good but weird collection. One was about how they drug space command and faked moon landing. another person standing in line at a movie was shot. A lady waiting for 8 hours to get 88 dollars in foodstamps lost her temper at worker. A quite lady that no one really new at work and the building got bombed. they get the point across. easy to read and follow.

There are not many books that I read that I don't get some kind of message out of it; however, there's no message to grasp at all in this book. I couldn't get through the first couple of pages because it makes no sense whatsoever!
