Book Review of WRITERS ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD, Edited by CC Bye and Sassy Britt

Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road is an anthology edited by Clayton Bye and Sassy Britt and published through Chase Enterprises Publishing. It may be purchased at http://www.alternative-read.com/  

This adult-based alternative anthology contains eighteen short stories written by fourteen  writers. Each story was very different and a few were very adult with some sexual content. But, for the most part, the book offered some good short stories ranging from thrillers to science fiction each with awesome ‘shock’ value.

I really enjoyed each story and can’t decide which was better. I got started reading and really couldn't stop—wanting to read more or continue on to the next hair-raising story. I like a book I can pick up and not put down and was really surprised how much this read kept me coming back for more. Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road certainly did it for me. From the umber-creepy to the tragically bittersweet, this anthology has it all.

A few of the stories represented in this anthology are; "The Barefoot Hero" by Timothy Fleming, "The Cenotaph" by Casey Wolf, "Take Two" by Kit St. Germain, "The Journey" by Megan Johns, "The Smile in Her Eyes" by John B Rosenman, and "Man Slaughter" by Lucille P. Robinson. These are just a few of the great shorts in this read.

I’m giving Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road a 4½ spider rating and recommending this anthology to any adult reader looking for something different. You can’t go wrong!
