    One thought on “Indie Bites”

    1. This collection of 14 shorts is extremely varied – from an epic poem to a child’s experience at the beach to a porn star’s outlook on life. I especially liked ‘One Unread Message’ and ‘The Nail.’ All were good; some were amazing. Extremely well-edited, with gorgeous artwork for each story, this is definitely worth the money. I’ve read full-length novels by a few of the contributors, and have to say those authors are even better at writing longer stories. All in all, a talented gr [...]

    2. A collection of short stories - To be honest i didn't think i liked short stories until i read these and i really really enjoyed reading them. It's such an easy book to read, i read it in a day. I couldn't put it down. I liked some of the stories better than others but i wouldn't say any of them were bad, its just personal taste. I would recommend this book if you don't have a lot of time to read and just want to read a quick story while you have 5 minutes. Having said that i am recommending it [...]

    3. A collection of fourteen pieces by indie authors which includes short stories, verse and illustrations. If you enjoy science fiction and fantasy then you may find more to interest you in this book than I did. I liked the first story in the collection ‘One Unread Message’ by Jonathan Hill.

I also enjoyed ‘Chloe’ by Ethereal.‘The Nail’ by Johnny H [...]

    4. This collection is genre potpourri. As is often the case with collections of short works, some of the stories are better than others. "The Nail" stands out as the gem. I also enjoy "Joystick". "The Rembrandt House" reminds me of the Are You Afraid of the Dark episode "The Tale of the Unfinished Painting". I'm not sure if that's a good thing or otherwise.The images are kind of weird and not particularly aesthetically pleasing, yet they seem somehow appropriate for a book with “indie” in its t [...]

    5. I enjoyed this book. A great variety of stories - poetry and prose, horror and humour, supernatural and sci-fi, as well as some good old-fashioned tongue-in-cheek scenarios. So definitely something to please everybody. Some of the stories I liked better than others. It is in large format presentation, making it ideal for people with visual impairment (or just tired eyes!). I like to read short stories between longer books, as I find it helps me to settle into the new mood of the next book, and w [...]
