    Here we are with 12 stories on the Civil War. Narration and prose are great, no doubt about it, but somehow you expect more after titles like "Sabre in the Road", "House of Unspeakable Things" or "Of Mice and Men" (had to think about the Steinbeck novella of course). The stories here were well told but for my taste a bit long winded and not that eerie as I had expected. With regard to the cover I had thought about hair raising entanglements between Unionists and Confederates but here was only a Here we are with 12 stories on the Civil War.

The stories here were well told but for my taste a bit long winded and not that eerie as I had expected. With regard to the cover I had thought about hair raising entanglements between Unionists and Confederates but here was only a whiff of Bierce or Hawthorne. The author is gifted but maybe he should focus a bit more on intriguing elements. For avid readers of Civil War stories definitely recommended!

    Ok, sometimes, I am dumb and I thought this was nonfiction. That was my mistake. BUT I decided to read it in the morning to avoid being terrified before bed once I realized it was a scary story collection. This brought to mind collection like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and that was actually fine. I thought it was interesting to have these set during the Civil War (I have had some weird experiences at Civil War battlegrounds, so I thought it seemed fitting to tell scary stories from that Ok, sometimes, I am dumb and I thought this was nonfiction. That was my mistake. BUT I decided to read it in the morning to avoid being terrified before bed once I realized it was a scary story collection. This brought to mind collection like Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark and that was actually fine. I thought it was interesting to have these set during the Civil War (I have had some weird experiences at Civil War battlegrounds, so I thought it seemed fitting to tell scary stories from that time). These stories weren't terrifying. I was able to read them with little issue. (There was one about spiders that I just skimmed because that's just a phobia of mine and I COULD NOT). There were some recurring characters (I think I noticed a few and I was unsure about a couple but I decided that they were connected). The author mentions working on a novel featuring these characters and I think I would be interested in reading a horror-type novel featuring some of the people we met. Some of the stories left me with questions, and I think that is fine because maybe they will be answered later and if they aren't, then I have something to think about. Overall, this was a short but enjoyable read.
