Eighteen short stories total. It is impossible to pick a favorite out of these eighteen stories. They are all completely different from one another. Varying lengths. Twilight Zone feel to them. Many of them leave you wanting more. Leaving unanswered questions. I loved this collection. I will be reading them again and hope the author comes out with another collection or expands on some of those that left me longing for answers. Ending another good book. Saying goodbye to this new friend that I enjoyed spending my time with. Off to find a mother one.
