Présentation de l'éditeur

From award-winning author, Gary Ponzo, comes four short stories which have all been previously published in magazines--two of which were nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Each one has a twist ending in the tradition of an O. Henry story. Some have labeled them similar to a Twilight Zone episode.

The View from Above: A story of a wife and husband who find themselves trapped below the summit of Mt. Everest in a vicious snow storm. The husband is lost and can't find his way back to camp, while his wife desperately tries to guide him there.

The Birthday Wish: Angela is an exquisitely dressed customer at a neighborhood sports bar. When a young man strikes up a conversation, she decides to ask him to wish her piano teacher Happy Birthday for her. But when the man arrives at the teacher's house, he discovers that his chance meeting with Angela wasn't exactly a coincidence.

The Wish: A young man picks up a hitchhiker only to discover his guest is more polished than he looks. The hitchhiker has a gem called the wishing rock and he offers his driver the chance to make a wish. Will the wish come true?

Saving the World: A clairvoyant teenage girl arrives at a psychiatrist's office claiming she can speak with invisible aliens who are here to destroy our planet. She just needs to come up with one reason why they shouldn't push the button. Who needs more help—the girl or the psychiatrist?

"Gary Ponzo is a fantastic storyteller."
Judith L. Pearson, author of "Belly of the Beast," and "Wolves at the Door."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable short stories 22 juin 2011

I almost didn't purchase this because I don't usually read short stories. I am glad I did. I finished reading another book and had only a little while to get in some reading. I purchased because I really enjoyed Gary's other two books so much (the Nick Bracco series). As the previous reviewer, I particularly liked The Wish. Although of the supernatural style, which is not a favorite of mine, I found all four stories to be entertaining. Although some of the endings were predictable, the stories were well written and kept me drawn to the end. Definitely worth spending the $0.99 on!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Buy This For What It Is: Good Short Stories! 20 juin 2011

Sometimes I'll finish a book and still want to read, but don't really feel like starting a new novel. This little collection of short stories by Gary Ponzo provided me with a great alternative to starting a longer book.

There are four stories each of which took me about 15-20 minutes to read. Not being a huge fan of short stories, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed these. Gary manages to capture your interest, and then provide an ending with a twist. In a word; enjoyable!

My favorite in the collection is "The Wish". Ponzo got me on that one.

I'm not usually a fan of short stories (which is surprising because I seem to have the attention span of a two-year-old), but I figured that if it was written by Gary Ponzo, it had to be good. I was right. :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I can almost hear Rod Serling introducing these stories! 5 juillet 2011

I am a big of fan of Gary Ponzo's novels...Now I am a big fan of his short stories, too!
Told very much in the Twilight Zone/ironic twist of fate genre, these stories are a great quick read and they are great stories, well told (as are all of the stories, Ponzo tells)!
With short stories, it can be difficult to entertain, edify and satisfy in the 15-20 minutes it takes to read...Ponzo does all that and more with this anthology!
If you like a great short story, do yourself a favor and pick up this little gem!
It's a great summer read!
