Debut author, Timothy W. Sparks introduces us to his anthology of horror and science fiction, “Pipe Dreams and Nightmares”:
Pipe Dreams and Nightmares explores the strange and impossible through
stories of science fiction and paranormal. In one weird new world
after another, Sparks lights up the page with chilling tales of death,
hopeful stories of the afterlife, and strange accounts of the
extraterrestrial. Be prepared for anything in the twist endings and
surprising solutions to the unprecedented problems these characters
face. From men pregnant by aliens to sentient invasive weeds to
corporate manipulation in the outer space junk-collecting business,
life is normal until it’s not and then what do you do?

There are some great stories here. I think most, if not all, could be expanded into a book, a good book. I like the author’s writing style quite a bit. It is quite down to earth and realistic.
I think my favorite story is The Ghost and His Dog. I was in the military a long time ago and we had a German Shepherd as a family dog. He was dumb as a rock, but we loved him.
Don’t ask me to choose my least favorite story. I can’t do it. Each story is so good on its own merit. Cheaters Due gives a chilling new meaning to close encounters.
I award 4.9 stars to Pipe Dreams and Nightmares, the score would have been higher except for a small handful of spelling errors.
