Book Review: Henry's Stories Vol 2

From the dusty tracks of the Moon to the volcanoes beneath the sea, with a few side trips to alien planets and alternate reality, these short fiction stories from Henry Melton’s collection will give your imagination a good stretch.

Here are a variety of tales, from whimsy to adventures to serious speculation. A few have seen print in the traditional science fiction magazines or in anthologies, but the majority are new, seeing print under an ISBN stamped cover for the first time.

The Attorney for Passenger Pigeons
Duck and Cover
Maggie’s Marbles
The Third Wish
Going Green
The Manta
Turkey Dinner
It’s a Wonderful Morning
In a Black Mood
Partly Murphy
The Christmas Count

As promised, I'm back with the review for Volume 2! I am thrilled to say that this one is far better than volume 1. Where volume 1 was filled with what felt like unfinished stories, volume 2 is filled with completed ones. In fact, of the thirteen or so stories, I think there was only one or two that didn't feel finished. I have to say that my favorite story in this volume was The Manta. It was quite a bit longer than the other stories, but it really felt fully fleshed out. This book is filled with stories of the bizarre, stories that you want to lose yourself in, and some that are just plain interesting.

While I'd suggest giving Volume 1 a pass, I can recommend that you pick up Volume 2.
