Reviewed by Patricia Reding for Readers’ Favorite Sometimes a person has a matter of minutes for reading and wants to be able to experience a full story in that time. Such can be done with the stories set out in Bubble Off Plumb, edited by KG Finfrock, Sarah Kalin, and Dan M. Kalin. This book offers a variety of short stories from a number of authors. As the editors tell it, the idea was to publish a number of non genre specific stories that shared a single thing in common. That thing, quite simply, is that each story is somehow “off-beat.” The result is a publication of over 20 stories, all of which are sure to have satisfied the editors as each is unusual, and all of which are likely to satisfy readers for that same reason. In Bubble Off Plumb, I went on a variety of short adventures. As a consequence of Buzz Dixon’s story entitled, “Barn Raising,” I may never think the same of the friendly Amish tradition of helping another party raise a barn. I might even suspect something a bit more sinister. Likewise, KG Finfrock’s “Good Thoughts” made me consider how retribution might look if it was the sole purpose for imprisoning those who’d engaged in criminal behavior. Then with “The Way it Was” with Jonah, Arthur Weil gave me interesting insight into what it would be like to befriend someone who is accident prone—when the accidents happen to those around that person. These are just a few of the many stories in this anthology. Grab a copy to download and engage yourself the next time you have to sit in a waiting room or stand in a line. The minutes are likely to fly by as you enjoy some good storytelling, while your outlook on some rather ordinary things in life might never be the same thereafter.

Top Five Favorite Stories in Bubble Off-Plumb

Cover_Change_front_120-683x1024What do stories about ephemeral Martian settlers, fascinating dimensional rifts, Spanish-speaking hummingbirds, Loki’s children, WWII twins, hitchhiking swamp cats, a steam-punk octopus, Arkham card-games, using bad luck for fun and profit, demon home security systems, alternative criminal justice, workplace time travel, marketing to body-snatchers, alien attraction, and way too many barns all have in common? Simple: in one way or another they are all Bubble Off Plumb.

 

These are my top five favorite stories in the anthology.  Each of these stories stayed with me long after I finished reading them. Each invoked a feeling of happiness, tears, or terror.

#1 The Hole by Tim Jeffreys

Josh and Marion had found the perfect starter house at a price too good to be true.The owners explained they wanted a quick sale as they wanted to start fresh. Josh skipped the full survey. He figured they would be able to pay for any repairs needed.

Maybe things would have turned out differently if the inspection had been made but I  doubt it.

This story stayed with me months after reading it.

#2 I am Bridget by Mariah Southworth

A scientist recreates his oldest teen daughter in a robot. She is perfect and no one knows she has replaced the deceased daughter, Bridgett. She is perfect. Maybe too perfect.

IA at it’s best. 

#3 The Prisoner by Valerie Manwill

Finn is young and passionate and he is not ready to throw away the best years of his life behind bars. He is determined to escape.

I did not expect the twist at the end of this thriller. I laughed … a lot.

#4 Harold’s Not Imaginary Friend

Harold’s new bride, Barbara, is questioning Harold’s friend Marshal who only seems to drop in when Harold is home alone. He never writes or call. Is he even real?

I enjoyed everything in this story, the friendships, the love shared between all and the adventure they went on.

#5 The Time Before Dreams by E.E King

Here lived all things fantastic, forgotten imaginings, and recollected from lives never lived.

Being an avid dreamer, this story brought me to tears. I did not want to leave this magical place.

Conversations with KG Finfrock

Such a pleasure doing this interview. Thank you for inviting me.

Rami Ungar The Writer

Hello, and welcome back to another interview. I’m so glad I’m able to spotlight so many different authors lately. Really livens things up a bit, and it’s a great way to connect with new friends and new readers. And today’s interview is with a new acquaintance whom I met through the Horror Writers Association. She’s a writer, editor, and she’s hear to talk about her work.

Please welcome KG Finfrock.

Rami Ungar: Welcome KG. Tell us about yourself and your novel House of Redemption.

KG Finfrock: I love to listen to people’s stories. I had a friend in high school who was a pathological liar and I didn’t care. I loved to hear the stories she would weave as truth. I love to get people to open up about what’s going in their lives and where they’ve gone. Being a homebody, I’m happy to live vicariously through their experiences…
