This anthology features a wonderfully diverse collection of micro-fiction stories written around the theme of “home”. Diverse in terms of sub-genres and locations—it’s amazing and delightful to read stories created by people who live all around the world. I love the bite-size of the stories. On busy days when I don’t have the time to read, I can still squeeze 2-3 stories. They do pack a punch in terms of emotions—so much is said in so few words.

NOT A BAD STORY IN THE BUNCH - BUY IT
Seriously if the opening poem from Emily Dickinson does not hook you then you're probably already dead! Joking aside, the inclusion of that poem gives you immediate insight into the what lies ahead in this collection of 100 word tales/poems.
Yes, some of the works shine brighter then the others, but again IMHO it's well worth the purchase. There are too many stand outs(seriously without naming just about everyone LOL) but I will admit that some of my very very very very favorites include ones by Antonia Rachel Ward (all of them),Benjamin Bateman(all of them), K.J. Watson (all of them), Alexis DuBon, Taylor DePrince, Tyler Norton, Steve Neal, and Gordon B White to name a handful.
I loved this collection! I have such a weakness for haunted houses and this collection featured so many gifted writers covering this theme from numerous perspectives. There is also something about having such a spooky topic in the format of flash fiction because it forces writers to be concise and can provide ambiguous endings that make the spooky stories linger with you! If you love spooky stories and/or flash fiction I'd highly recommend this collection....if you dare...
