"The blond swirls ruined as they stuck to my eyes and the cut across my cheek, cemented to my skin with blood." And I Exhale, by Stephanie Pitcher Fishman.
"Marguerite, only rags, some stained a deep umber like the crust of a pie long since forgotten in a hot oven, stared back." Shaded, Dede Nesbitt.
Shutter Step takes me back to a time when a short story from Roald Dahl or Shirley Jackson was just what I needed to transport me to another time and place. This collaboration of authors offers multitudes of fantastic imagery. In short stories, every single word needs to count to pull the reader in.
I highly recommend this anthology of shorts. The stories are refreshing and absorbing giving the reader just enough.
