Not a mistake to read these

Reviewed at: Reaper Must Die

As it says in the title, this is a collection of short stories. No long and convoluted plots, no confusing amount of characters, no extensive world-building. Just a start right in the middle of the action, one or very few short scenes, maybe some cool one-liner, the end. The topics change, as does the narrative style (first person or third person or no person).

Story 1) What would be the consequence of time travel? Contemplative and a bit sad.

Story 2) Ham. Very large ham. Outlandish ham. Overblown up to eleven. A funny kind of crazy.

Story 3) What? This is spooky.

Story 4) What?? This even more.

Story 5) What??? A legal text? I think the author is going crazy...

Story 6) ... no, this one was sane again, phew! Nice piece about the moment directly after death.

As varied as the stories are, it is inevitable that some are more and others less relevant to any one reader's interests, including mine, so the rating for this is less than five. But the author's skill is clearly seen in all of them. Give it a try. My favorites are 1 and 6, which are yours?
