“People are Strange” is the fifth in the series, “Mind’s Eye”, and follows the same excellent format as the others: a selection of short stories and poems inspired by some amazing photographs. In this volume, the theme is “strangeness”, which has allowed the authors and poets a chance to follow their imaginations into some weird and amazing places.
I have to say, that in all honesty, I enjoyed all of the pieces in this book. Some of the stories are spooky, some are fantasy; others are science fiction, while one or two are chilling. As well as some of my favourite authors and poets, this collection introduced me to the work of Thomma Lyn Grindstaff and the fiction of Maria Haskins.
Yet again, I can recommend this well-written, engrossing collection to all who enjoy short stories and poetry of high quality. The Mind’s Eye series is well worth a place on any bookshelf!
