Book Review: 2020 Indie Authors’ Short Story Anthology


2020 Indie Authors’ Short Story Anthology is a collection of short stories from US, Australian, South African, and UK writers. There are over twenty short stories of different themes that the authors wrote to keep themselves sane during these trying times. These authors are Mustang Patty, Andrew Paul Grell, Charles R. Bucklin, Ellen Eigner, C Alexis, Becky Crookham, Paul J P Slater, Tammy Godfrey, Maria Delaney, Maruschka Scott, Susannah MacDonald, J.V. Montgomery, Natalie Jessen Freese, Jane Bradshaw, Christy Kunin, Angelique Pacheco, Dan B. Fierce, and K.L. Laettner.


What an amazing book this is! I love that there are different genres and different styles of writing! It’s really nice to read these stories during this crazy pandemic era when we’re all just trying to do our best to keep our sanity. This is how these very talented authors coped with this year’s struggle, and it is always something to be proud of when something positive comes out of complete boredom. I love the imagination of these writers! I enjoyed all the short stories, but my personal favorites are I Do It for the Glory by Maria Delaney, Revenge by Dan B. Fierce, and The Good Dog by Mustang Patty because of their dark theme. Another favorite of mine because of the main lead’s amusing conversations with his mom is Lockdown by Paul J P Slater.

I’m giving this 5 out of 5 stars. These short stories were well-written and very entertaining! I highly recommend this to ALL readers who want stories that you can finish in one sitting.
