Simply Beautiful Jan 1, 2006
The love stories in this book are filled with much passion.
I read the story about Muirne Raisa to my dying mother. I could tell she was truly enjoying the story, unfortunately it was the last story she had ever heard. It was something that I will always have when I read that story. Thank You Janet Terry.
I of course enjoyed the writer Megan Terry, who's young spirit seems to shine in her female characters. Most are women of stregnth and bravery. They are true role models for today's woman. I look foward to reading more books by her.
This kind of book is a joy not only for the short stories which in today's busy society allow people the chance to read, but the true joy is having wonderful authors presented so well. I hope this review encourages you to get a copy. I'm sure you will enjoy the book.
A GOOD MIX OF STYLES & GENRES IN THIS COLLECTION! GREAT READS! Sep 29, 2005
The book is titled correctly; it IS the best collection of short stories I've read in 2005 ... perhaps ever.
The variety was well-chosen and entertained me no end! I'm a busy mother, playing at being a comic and have little time to read long novels, so short stories fill the bill. (Or am I a busy comic, playing at being a mother? LOL.)
Thanks, Ms. Terry and friends for helping me unwind in the shortest time possible.
THESE SHORT STORIES ARE REALLY GOOD! Jun 24, 2005
I usually enjoy novels, but lately find myself reading more short stories, mainly because the hectic pace of the workforce in Silicon Valley leaves little time for reading.
In the case of JUST OUR BEST SHORT STORIES 2005, I'm certainly glad I decided to get this book. This is the most versatile short-story collection I've ever read. Among the themes of the stories are: medieval romance, the 1960s, a true account of a man grieving the death of his beloved wife, an endearing poem about a dragon-slaying, romantic knight, a dark story about a "death feast," etc.
It even has a Sci-Fi offering by the author, Janet Sue Terry, that is really exciting.
But I must admit, I started reading it because my mother, author Betty Dravis, has three of her more satirical stories, dark humor and dark horror, in this book. Since her two published books are much lighter and more contemporary, this is a side of her writing that her readers haven't seen yet. I can just picture her "tongue in her cheek" when she wrote these; she really has a "warped" sense of humor that's very original and a joy to read.
I'm not prejudiced (of course not!!!), but Mom's short-shorts are really good, folks ... as are all the stories in this book. There seems to be something for everyone. If this book is any indication of the skills of the contributing writers, then each should have bright futures ahead of them.
I highly recommend this book.
MY AUNT LIKES THESE STORIES Jun 6, 2005
Most of these stories are love stories. Ohhhh, gross! But I'm visiting my aunt and forgot my books. She let me read two she says are okay for kids my age.
I liked the story about the SIXTIES and the one about the gingerbread man. It was scary. I like scary stories.
I like computers too. Thanks - Andrew
A VERSATILE COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES BY TALENTED WRITERS May 20, 2005
Author Janet Sue Terry has compiled an eclectic mix of short stories that are certain to please the palette of readers of diverse tastes. Terry titillates our imagination with her offering of medieval love stories about princes and princesses, complete with fire-breathing dragons and exciting adventures.
Megan Blue Terry wrote three stories for this book. My favorite is "Pay Your Marriage Dues," a touching love story of a husband and wife struggling to accept each other's reality.
And if you enjoy a quick, stimulating read, Betty Dravis (that's me) is the writer for you. I can't write much about my own works, of course, so please read my short, satirical stories of dark humor and dark horror, then judge for yourself. I hope they amuse and entertain you, as they're meant to do.
Joe DeChristopher pens a story of love found, love lost, a true story that's a glowing tribute to his late wife ... a story that was very painful for him to write. He also writes a moving tale of a Vietnam veteran who can't let go of "ghosts from the past."
Lori Martin paints a dark tale of death and gloom in the unusual setting of a dining room; a must read for horror fans.
Dan Chatterton takes the reader on a nostalgic trip back to the sixties; boys, girls, parents ... and "muscle" cars, of course.
Daniel Morrison pens a somber story of an overweight boy who has an obsession for a lovely girl in a poster; an intriguing mystery.
And the "diamond in this collection of precious gems" is a love story by Rosanna Filippello. In "Blind Love" she writes of a beautiful broadcast journalist who catches her boyfriend in bed with her best friend; an old storyline that becomes fresh under Filippello's masterful pen. Her twists and turns are so exciting you can't quit reading. A remarkable reading experience, as are all the gems between the covers of this book. So find a comfortable chair, and sit back and enjoy the read."
