Another 5-star Reader Review.

5.0 out of 5 stars a cracking collection, May 22, 2011
This review is from: FROM THE BRIDGE & SEVEN OTHER SHORT STORIES (Kindle Edition)
An interesting and eclectic mix of short stories that covers several types of story. One stand-out for me was "Super powers" where a small child is listening to his parents having yet another argument from behind his bedroom door - well told and the kicker at the end was one of those where you read it and then think - did he really do that!!!
"What spider-man's evil twin taught me about life" is an episode from the author's youth that captures childhood ways very well.
The final story in the collection is "Virtuatopia is burning" a pleasant enough story to end a superb book.
As with most short story collections some stories are better than others but this is a collection definitely worth dipping into.
