Fantastic Short Fiction!

After listening to all of the Middle Falls series, I was curious to see how Mr. Inmon did on short fiction, and I was NOT disappointed. These are all fantastic stories, and showcase a different style of writing and imagination from the author. Shawn is great at quickly grabbing your interest and then developing a story that holds onto you until the very last word. His characters are all very interesting and believable, and have a satisfying depth to them even in a short space of time and words. Mr. Tiedemann did an awesome job of narrating the stories also; his ability to give different voices to the characters that sound so natural, and maintain your interest in the story until the end is really great. This is a great collection of stories that crosses different genres; there's suspense, humor, melancholy, sadness, excitement, and hope embedded in this collection in the form of these 13 stories. Well worth your time; you will not be disappointed!
