I have just finished reading a fantastic anthology of short stories entitled DYSFICTIONAL (Stories for Twisted Minds) by author Mandy White. The book cover for this anthology is really great and helps to portray the overall feeling for the anthology, but if that doesn’t pull you in all the way, just read the first story within called RUBY IN THE MIST and you’ll be hooked. RUBY IN THE MIST is just the first of nine stellar shorts, which I have to admit are a bit off-beat, but in the most wonderfully gripping and twisted way! I have never been much into short-stories, not for any other reason as I hadn’t read many, but now after reading Mandy White’s DYSFICTIONAL I am a self-proclaimed short story addict!
Author Mandy White has a way of making her characters so darn real, you’d think they were based off yourself, your family, or your next-door neighbor. Heck, her characters are so relatable and down-to-earth, you’d swear you’ve known them for years and it makes closing the book on them very hard to do. When you read DYSFICTIONAL, you’ll find yourself cringing and shivering in the most pleasant of unpleasant ways and I’m just sure you’ll hear yourself say–more than a few times–“Just one more page!”
I flew through this book and loved the fact that I could–or HAD TO, rather, swallow up an entire story a night or more. With titles like ZOMBIE CUISINE and HEART-SHAPED BOX to name a couple, you just know that you’re in for a morbid and intriguing treat! Despite the fact that these tales are twisted and jarring at points, they were also stuffed full of snarky humor from some of the characters, which I loved, and I actually found myself chuckling out loud more than once.
Please take my advice and grab yourself a copy of DYSFICTIONAL (Stories for Twisted Minds),kick back, and relax (sort of) while you witness a compelling collection of dark stories that will have you stamping, shouting, and screaming as the plots unfold.
Loved it. Loved it.
