Odds and Endings: Fiction Short and Otherwise is Joe DeRouen's first short story collection, and contains 13 all-new tales of magic, murder, and mystery. The compilation includes one novella and 11 short stories, one of which takes place in the Small Things universe and involves some of your favorite characters.
In "A Stranger with Your Hair", we meet Parker McCain, a womanizer who's always looking for the perfect partner. He gets all that and more when he makes a certain wish. Speaking of wishes, "The Wish" shows exactly why you should be very careful when you hold someone's heart in your hands, while "Mommy's Favorite" illustrates what can happen when a mother's love goes too far. And in "Merryland", we'll spend time with Zara Boone, a woman who gets far more than she bargained for when she inherits her dead grandmother's house. These are just a few of the tales that await you in Odds and Endings!

Fun collection of stories!

Tales from the ...
I would say it was worth listening to. I enjoyed how the stories were all vastly different and covered fantasy to horror; although, the horror ones were very well done. It felt very much like I was listening to Tales from the Darkside or Tales from the Crypt or Twilight Zone.
I could point out many moments in the stories; but, my favorite one was "Going Over" solely because it brought me back to my childhood. Any story that includes Rowdy Roddy Piper is a good one.
Add more inflection. I felt that some moments were lost due to his deep tone.
Yes, the stories were fun to listen to and I enjoyed the "Shyamalan" twists. I would listen to more shorts by this author.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
