1 review about The Uncanny Valley: Tales from a Lost Town

Haunting and evocative short stories combine into a fascinating novel

Recollections of memorable local events submitted to a newspaper contest fill this book, or so the story goes. But these weird tales from the Uncanny Valley have a low-key mystery flavored with sudden shocks that's truly uncanny, from the perfect recreation of a less than perfect wedding to the horror of something unseen going bump in the night. The voices of different narrators/writers, and their ages and occupations, add a hauntingly down-to-earth touch that'll leave readers listening, watching and waiting as pages turn, and staring nervously through the window.

I would try to tell you my favorite from this collection, but that's like trying to choose a favorite friend. Just read `em. Pick your own and enjoy the mystery of thoroughly old-fashioned scares in a nearby world without the glamor, bling and romance of modern movies' weaker fare. May the "thin place[s]" keep you on your toes if you visit Uncanny Valley, and may these cool stories and scary pictures entertain you as you plan your trip.

Disclosure: I got this ebook free. Lucky me! I love it.
