fresh enjoyable collection July 26 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although readers would expect the thirteen contributions by a strong group of authors would be so similar the tales would trip over each other; as how many thin veils and portals can there be. Instead the writers provided numerous "gateways" with many interpretations to what is and how to enter THE DIMENSION NEXT DOOR. Donald J. Bingle uses the net; Lillian Stewart Carlisle's protagonist travels into the past; Fiona Paton's young hero serves two Queen Elizabeth's; one in the sixteenth century and the other starting in 1953. Whether it is a different Ben Franklin (by Anton Stout) or just "Unreadable books by Steven Schend, the path next door varies. Thus this themed anthology turns into a fresh enjoyable collection as the authors escort readers through thirteen different doors; the right number of tales for a collection based on unexplained phenomena teasing and frightening our senses probably leaking from across the other side.

Excellent anthology May 11 2013
By Cissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the best anthologies I've read in the past couple of years. All of the authors had very different takes on "the dimension next door", and that made it a treat.

While some stories were better than others, they were all very well-written (and in my experience, usually an anthology had at least a couple of duds).

Most of the time, if I keep an anthology, it's because of 1 -3 really good stories, and the rest range from duds to meh. With this one- I really was taken with almost all of them!

Recommended.

A Fun Read Sept. 3 2008
By Andrew D Betts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I preface this review with a note that I've really only read three of the stories. They were the stories by Steven E Schend, Anton Strout, and Nina Hoffman.

I purchased this book with the intention to read only "Unreadable" and ended up reading the other two as well (I may get to rest, but only time will tell).

Steven's story is fabulous and the idea that some books were meant to not be read is always amusing.

Anton gave me new perspective on Ben Franklin that I never would have considered before.

And Nina's stories are generally treats.

I would purchase this book for just any of the three listed above, but the fact that you get them all together just sweetens the deal.

uninspiring May 9 2009
By J C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a collection of short stories written by different authors. The quality of the story varies with the abilities of the author. Many of the stories are entertaining and worth the read. The stories by Hoffman and Bingle, for example, were quite good. However, the last two stories in this collection were less entertaining. The story by Fiona Patton is tedious. It never develops beyond the initial premise. It is not her best work. The final story is by Potter and it is quite out of place in this collection. Much of the story is taken up with the protagonist gushing about his homosexual romance. The plot is sophomoric. If it were not for the overt homosexual references, it would be reasonable to assume this was written by a young girl for other young girls. I am not entertained by gushing romance, homosexual or otherwise, and I cannot imagine why anyone thought this was appropriate for this collection.
