Tales From The Coffee Pot by Jim Ody
For the first time, the best of Jim Ody’s published short-stories are together in one anthology, including four previously unreleased.
Twelve twisted tales that touch on psychological/thriller, horror and YA, including:
A detective sent to a travelling circus to find a missing boy;
A guy with a mysterious trunk must meet a stranger at a motel to survive;
A doll turns up and becomes a little girl’s best friend. Then things turn strange;
A surprise birthday party is memorable, if only the birthday boy survives;
and a group of orphans find the world is about to end…
The reason I wanted to highlight this book is because it’s something that’s a little out of my comfort zone, not only is it a collection of short stories which I’ve not really read before, it also includes some horror stories which I haven’t really dipped my toes into either.
I wanted to read this because I loved The Crazy Season by Jim Ody, I really enjoy his writing so I was interested to see what else he created.
I’ve read the first 4 stories so far and out of them I really loved 3 so I’m excited to jump back in and read a few more under the covers!
Do you have any recommendations for any other collections of short stories?
See you in the next one…
