Dreams Both Real and Strange I and II by K.W. McCabe

Dreams Both Real and Strange I and II is an anthology of short stories written by the gifted writer, K.W. McCabe. Each short story deals with a different emotion - the afterlife, grief, death, sadness and more.  They are all dark tales - some magical and some mysterious.

While some of the stories are longer than the others, they all capture your attention, drawing you into their world, if only for a very short time.

My favorite is probably Choices.  It's the story of Thomas, the servant to the Lord of Death.  When is daughter is presented with the same fate, Thomas must make some life-altering choices. Mourning is about the loss of a son and this one made me sad.  There are several others, including Wraith, a story of a couple trying to break a curse.

All in all, find them all enjoyable and enjoy McCabe's writing.  It just draws you into each world and its characters, leaving behind some thought-provoking questions and yet satisfied.  You can read them one at a time, when you have time, or you can read them all at once.  I read them all at once because I was so invested in the writing and craved more.  Definitely recommend!

*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
