I actually enjoyed the cliff-hanger feeling that each story left me with because it made me go through a rollercoaster of emotions, and culminated in a dramatic ending that made me literally go 'whoa'! Some of the longer stories could have used some more transition elements but other than that, I really enjoyed everything I read! Overall, this was a great experience for me, and I cannot wait to read more short stories! This is a collection of short stories that surprised me. They range from fantasy to contemporary time periods.
Each story is in its own world. I forgot everything else with each short story I read. Not all stories do this for me, especially short stories all written by the same author. The twists in each story kept me reading and enjoying them! There were unusual supernatural stories, myths, and ghost tales.

This book surprised me. I wasn't expecting much because the blurb was a bit vague on what the stories were about. All I knew was this: 'Some are ghost stories, others are simply scary, and most have a twist in the tail. In each story, there is a character who, one way or another, feels lost. What it contains is a number of delightfully twisted little stories, that aren't always scary, and there may have been one about time and a wish that went over my head, but were none the less fascinating and enjoyable to read.
Do recommend for anyone who likes twists and a little bit of horror at least the kind without gore. If I had any complaint about this book, it would be simply that it was not long enough for me, but then I'm greedy like that. Ghosts, vampires and the afterlife merge with the forces of nature and symbolic archetypes in these twelve highly original stories that run the gamut from darkness and death to innocence and hope.
While rooted in this world, they reach into the beyond with the mystical insight of parable and myth that touches something deep within the unconscious.

This I think is one of the great stories of all time and certainly should be published throughout the world. The Messenger has a quiet mysterious power and great depth. I know the difficulty to arrive at the spiritual and mental harmony which allows such poetry to flower in naturalness and spontaneous singing quality.

Each of these stories offers us an entry point into something 'other' and mirrors a particular awareness that we all possess in the depth of our psyche. Richard Howard is a unique talent who has the power to invoke this particular frequency. He is a spiritual writer, one of rare integrity, and each story is a testimony to his own insight. A book of rare truth and all-encompassing mystery.
This volume also contains an autobiographical essay in which the author recounts a lifetime of strange experiences that very early on aroused his curiosity about the paranormal. Strange Tales in Fiction and Fact by Richard Howard is a beautifully written collection of short stories that will totally captivate you. I really appreciate the author giving us a glimpse into his life. I also really loved learning where some of these stories originated. What a great way to end the collection. I would highly recommend this short story collection if you like slightly mysterious tales with a strong dose of the paranormal.
As I read each story, I was totally sucked in.
While I didn't want many of them to end, I was also excited to dive into the next one.
