Book Review – Tales Around The Supper Table

Some of my favorite writers have joined forces to publish an exquisite collection of short stories – Tales Around The Supper Table – An Anthology of Texas Writers:

This collection is from ten different Texas authors. There was no ‘world’ or set up for the stories. It was up to the individual authors to write their stories, so you get a wide variety! Vampires, dragons, werewolves, enchanted swords, runaways, SciFi, and cowboys… Stories for everyone in this collection of Texas authors!

Like the blurb says, there is something in this one for everyone.

Alma T.C. Boykin’s Pigmintum Regium tells the sword and sorcery tale from the dragon’s perspective, while Monalisa Foster’s Caliborne’s Curse is some of the best, and funniest, romance I’ve ever read. Dorothy Grant’s story, Business Not Bullets, gives us a peak into a universe I hope she explores. LawDog’s Bad Night in Falls Town gives the reader excellent urban fantasy, while Peter Grant returns to the Old West in his unmistakable way of setting the table and serving up a great yarn.

What I wouldn’t give to sit at that table, listening to these master storytellers plot out their latest works, go over details, and offer advice and knowledge to make each other’s stories just that much better. Westerns, sword and sorcery, urban fantasy, crime, and everything in between fill the pages of Tales Around The Supper Table.

The stories are well written, each one intriguing in its own way. The authors all take their time to grab the reader, hold on for 8 seconds, then pass the reins to the next storyteller. I had to ration my reading time with this one, or I would have burned through it in a night.

If you’re looking for something different, Tales Around the Supper Table is definitely recommended.
