Suzanne Craig-Whytock’s Blog: My Dang Blog
Do you need a laugh this morning? Head over to Suzanne’s blog. She’s one of those naturally funny people who can find humor in every aspect of daily life. Twice a week, her blog is a source of laughs, and I rarely miss a post. She buys used furniture, clocks, and other things, which she refurbishes and sells, but her humor runs the gamut. No opportunity for a laugh is overlooked, and for fans of tongue-in-cheek sarcasm… well you can’t go wrong at Suzanne’s.
You might think that Suzanne writes humor since her blog is hilarious, but she writes science fiction and horror. Some of her books aren’t available on kindle, but the one below is, and if you enjoy a lot of variety when reading dark and creepy short stories, well… this collection is great. (And I just heard that there’s a new collection coming out in December!)
Feasting Upon the Bones
My Review: This speculative fiction anthology of short stories by Suzanne Craig-Whytock is loaded with gems. I read it in one sitting late into the night, saying to myself, “Just one more,” until the book ran out of pages.
The stories are broken into three sections: Be Careful What You Wish For, What Goes Around, and The Price of Love is Loss. I had a bunch of favorites in each section but found every story entertaining and well “executed.”
Some of the stories were creepy like “The Grandmother Tree” and the “Human Match.” Some were dark and twisted like the title story “Feasting Upon the Bones” and “Brotherly Love.” A few fell into the realm of dark humor and had me chuckling such as “Mr. Death Comes To Call” and “As the Crow Flies.” And believe it or not, there were a few heartwarming tales of kindness and love like “Little Soldier” and “Perfect Food.”
The collection of stories is impressive. Highly recommended to readers of short stories who love dark speculative fiction.
