He again opened his book bag. Much to his surprise, he saw the crystal ball in there.
He flinched; he was more afraid than surprised. Just moments ago, the ball wasn’t in there.
This anthology comprises ten different stories, taking you on twelve very different trips; some will chill you, some will make you sad, others will make you wonder. There is one thing that they all have in common: They are unforgettable. I cannot tell you more about this anthology as it would spoil the fun of reading it yourself.
With The Alchemy of Reality, Andy Echevarria presents us with ten little gems. Each story is skilfully elaborated, has its own flow. Andy Echevarria created every story with care: the characters and the situations they find themselves in are realistic, a touch of the supernatural complements the stories nicely. I was drawn into most stories right away. I could easily envision the characters and locations. I had a great time reading The Alchemy of Reality. It is a very enjoyable read. This is for you if you like stories with a supernatural streak, unusual characters, surprises, and food for thought – all packed in short stories. [Welcome to the Twilight Zone.]
This is a book to read again. Recommended.
