The perfect place to develop a passion for short stories
I am a great fan of short stories, especially well written stories with a twist so I was delighted to read Triclops, a collection of forty short stories by three writers.
Susan Howe is local but she has teamed up with two other writers, Avery Mathers and Lee Williams, who she met via the Internet. They are very different authors but their styles and subject matter add up to a really interesting and satisfying book.
Although the book is self-published, it is far from a vanity project. This is well-crafted collection of short stories, of a variety of lengths, which all pull the reader in and trap them in the author's world.
I cannot recommend Triclops highly enough. I can only like it to being given a gift which when you open is a really a series of further gifts.
According to many surveys adults reading is decreasing partly because of our busy lives. According to Simon Prosser Publishing Director Hamish Hamilton: "The short story form is better suited to the demands of modern life than the novel."
Triclops would be the perfect place to develop a passion for short stories. It is available from Amazon.
