Book Review: THE HALLOWEEN COLLECTION FROM THE INDIE ECLECTIVE
This little book is very good at what it is meant to do - introduce you to nine indie writers through their stories. They span a wide variety of the paranormal genre, from romance to old fashioned ghost story to horror. If you like any kind of paranormal or horror story, you'll find at least one that you like very much and probably at least one you don't like. You have a good chance of finding at least one of these indie authors that you like so well, you run out and buy anther of their books.
For me, that was the Shimmering Taste of Revenge author, Jack Wallen. I was very happy to discover his book Zombie is also now free for Kindle. I snapped it up. No doubt I will be buying more of his books in the future. Especially since he tells me the main character in Shimmering - Vlad - is going to get his own book.
I also liked "The Village of Those Who Touch the Dead" and "OR 13". Other readers will no doubt prefer the humor of "the Special Werewolf" or the romance of some of the other stories, but they didn't appeal to me.
With one exception, the stories are not related to Halloween other than by the fact that they are all paranormal stories of one sort or another. That just means you should feel free to enjoy these stories any time of the year. But they are especially fun right now - just in time for the holiday.
By the way - the book is still free on the Kindle, as is this one.
