Title: Unreal Encounters
Author: Milo James Fowler
Published: November 4, 2016
Genres: Horror, Science Fiction
Fowler’s mix of science fiction and horror, sprinkled with a dash of humor leaves us with a good variety of short stories. With unexpected plot twists and endings that leave readers with food for thought, this is a great collection of speculative fiction.
I also found it interesting that some stories seem to weave into another, with similar settings, as if we’re getting a glimpse into more than one story in the same timeline. Very clever.
My favorites from this collection are Scuttle, A Monster By Any Other Name, and Self-Storage. They are all examples of what short horror should be. I also chose them because I love stories with creatures born from an author’s wild imagination.
I recommend this collection to all readers who enjoy speculative fiction.
