BOOK REVIEW: "Fireside Popsicles" (Edited by Sheila Hall & M.C. O'Neill)
More and more anthologies are being published, but few have such a diverse and yet common theme of "twisted tales". Sheila Hall and M.C. O'Neill (Sheila being the person who brought us The Struggle Anthology) put together Fireside Popsicles, a collection of short stories by some of today's independent writers.
With stories about killer Santa Claus and a murderous twelve year old, the whole world going deaf and mute, and monotony of life being broken by a teal bra, I can guarantee that you will never read anything quite like this ever again. There are stories that push into the horror genre and others take even seem sociological, while you also have some science fiction.
Each story is original. While I can't guarantee that you will like all of them, you will definitely like some, as they really are an eclectic mix of talent.
I enjoyed reading them, and I think you will, too...as long as you like the strange and the bizarre. I wish I could say more, but you'll just have to read it for yourself. ;p
4/5--bizarre and entertaining
