    Without trying to give too much away, I will say that Orotund: collected short stories volume II starts with a bang. The first story, Strangers, had me wondering where B. P. Gregory was going with it all. A young girl seemingly lost looking for a library finally finds what she is looking for. But all is not what it seems. This was a great story to start with and I’ll remember the ending for some time. Equally as good was Glory, a story that both disgusted and intrigued me.

This was a great story to start with and I’ll remember the ending for some time. Equally as good was Glory, a story that both disgusted and intrigued me. It is a tale that is both unusual, a little pervy and is very different from the first one showing that B. P. Gregory is far from a one-trick-pony. Elsewhere, Submerged reminded me a little of a story from the Drowned Worlds anthology I read early last year, this story also looks at a man dealing with grief in an isolated and unforgiving world. Great stuff. A couple of stories didn’t quite float my boat (haha, see what I did there?!), but overall I was well satisfied with the diversity and quality of the majority of the stories. One of the strengths of this collection lies in its diversity. Every tale has something a little different and Gregory has a quirkiness to her storytelling, a black humour that I found often surfaces within her characters. It’s this style that kept me turning the pages and is something I do enjoy as I have a very dry sense of humour myself 😉 Orotund: collected short stories volume II gave me food for thought and a desire to read more stories by B. P. Gregory. If you’re looking for a new author to read who writes in a multitude of different genres then check this out. 3.5/5 explosive finales from the Grim Reader.

    ** Edited as review is now live on Kendall Reviews! ** Having recently made my way through Cacophony, Book One of BP Gregory’s collected short stories, I dove headfirst into Book Two. From the get-go it was apparent that BP wasn’t messing around and that Book Two would be just as rock-solid as Book One. I don’t think I mentioned it in my review of Book One, but once again each story is followed up with a short paragraph or two telling about how the idea struck and what BP was attempting to accompli ** Edited as review is now live on Kendall Reviews! ** Having recently made my way through Cacophony, Book One of BP Gregory’s collected short stories, I dove headfirst into Book Two. From the get-go it was apparent that BP wasn’t messing around and that Book Two would be just as rock-solid as Book One. I don’t think I mentioned it in my review of Book One, but once again each story is followed up with a short paragraph or two telling about how the idea struck and what BP was attempting to accomplish in the story, which was great. What I Liked: Much like Book One, Gregory covers a lot of territory with Book Two. The stories are varied and the characters are all great to get to know. None of the stories lack or lag and with Gregory’s trademark bite infused throughout, she makes a lot of the stories pop that may otherwise not have that impact. As with Book One, this collection has an absolute monster of a story that you must read. ‘Glory‘ was disturbingly engrossing. A simple story where a teen boy who feels like an outsider hears a voice calling from the cut out hole in the wall at the public toilets. Gregory does an amazing job of bringing the disturbing once our character decides to interact with the voice. If you’ve read ‘The Special‘ by Newman and Steensland, you know things ain’t going to end well. What I didn’t like: As with Book One, a few of these stories would have benefited from a bit more space to breathe, a bit more word count to let some of the actions come to fruition. Why you should buy it: As I said before, Gregory is a fantastic author and conjures up some of the most disturbing scenarios ever put down on paper. Couple that with being an enthusiastic supporter of all things horror and this is a no-brainer. Grab it, read it, enjoy.

    *Won in a goodreads giveaway* Unsettling to say the least. I really enjoyed this collection of short stories, first and foremost "the stranger". Did not see the end to that one coming. The other very memorable one was "submerged" and I thought that ended rather bittersweet. A quick read, but a very good one. *Won in a goodreads giveaway* Unsettling to say the least.
