Just be sure to wash your hands once you’re done.
"Your description and world building are top notch. Your period dialogue works well." -Brian, Editor at Blue Shift Magazine for "English Channel"
"I really like the central idea of the story. I liked the ending. That is the best part of the story. Also, the metallic gold body suit she was wearing was a nice touch." -Dave, Editor at 4 Star Stories for "English Channel"
"The most terrible monster is the one close enough to touch, that still can't be stopped, no matter how hard you wish you could. Tonight's story, provided by Jaimie M. Engle, is a beautiful, terrifying, monster story. We hope you enjoy it." -Monster Corral for "Turning"
"Quite an eerie concept. I like the roadside cannibalism and the accent of the vendor gives the setting realism. I also like how the story flows with just enough wording to imply detailed visuals of how the scene plays out. Bravo!" -audiowriter for "Roadside Vendor"
"It's easy to fall into these narratives, to get lost in the lives of others, while burying deep our own moments of pain and suffering only to have them rise to the surface as these talented authors cull them from our memories, our hauntings, our dark echoes and dried-up tears." -Richard Thomas, Spark A Creative Anthology for "Moonshine on the Mississip"
"I originally thought this collection would be a bit wacky, and it was certainly unusual, but the surprise element was just how well written they all are...and every story is a gem and a delight to read. Not a dud among them." -Anita Dawes, Alternate Hilarities for "The Bombastic Adventures of Bob from Planet 9"
"Whenever I read a story by Jaimie Engle, she writes with such pizzazz that I can hear, see, smell everything she writes. I get a totally clear picture of the entire story. Loved these short stories in this book. I give it a two thumbs up." -Kandi Siegel, Passion for Puns for "Cauc Boy"
"I was immediately drawn to this collection of stories when I read the concept; 100 authors, 100 stories, each story only 100 words! It truly impressed me that anyone is capable of writing a captivating tale in 100 words....in this case, I was impressed 100 times over!" -Joline Devonshire, Another 100 Horrors for "The Asylum of the Dead"
