‘Tales from the Gray Area’ is well-written, crafted like any good short story or novella, by using the minimum number of words to their maximum effect. I feel that each story was long enough to become fully immersed in the storyline and the questions within, but short enough to flash through in one sitting.
A collection of seven novellas ‘Tales from the Gray Area’ is an anthology of imaginative stories that set my mind ablaze. From mysterious creatures, strange occurrences, Angels and UFOs, I think there’s a story for everyone in this anthology and after each, I wanted to know more, I pondered wider implications and wanted to know what else could happen after the events of the novella ends. Each unique storyline was completely immersive, with varying characters and settings to keep them distinct and interest the reader anew. I think that ‘Tales from a Gray Area’ could be read from cover to cover, and I could also see myself returning to my favourites in the future, ‘Reincarnated’ being one of them for inspiring remembrances of Cloud Atlas. Blending science fiction with fantasy and reality, these varying stories entice you in with mysteries and questions and leave you wanting to read more after they end. ‘Tales from the Gray Area’ is well-written, crafted like any good short story or novella, by using the minimum number of words to their maximum effect. I feel that each story was long enough to become fully immersed in the storyline and the questions within, but short enough to flash through in one sitting. I see this book on the bookshelves of many science fiction fans.

Embark on seven journeys that suspend disbelief and defy reality while traveling to places you’ve never dreamed possible. All within that elusive realm of the imagination known as “The Gray Area.” The tales include: “Reincarnated”,“Bottom Dwellers”, “Vacation from Hell”, “Discoveries at River View”, “Sorceress”, “Alien Addiction” and “Sanctuary”.“If you’ve enjoyed The Twilight Zone in its various incarnations—network TV series,short story anthologies, the motion picture, and, more recently, as a streaming series—then I can promise you’ll enjoy the stories in this book, Tales from the Gray Area. In the book’s foreword, the author, whose other work I’m also familiar with and a fan of, credits that seminal series with inspiring the writing of these compelling, absorbing novellas. If there’s such a term as ‘binge-reading,’ it would certainly apply to this book!” Darren Stuart, President, Stuart Media Management, UK-Europe.
