When I was younger, I was fascinated by cryptids. I just didn’t know that is what they were called. From the Loch Ness Monster to the Yeti to many others, I read everything I could get my hands on about creatures suspected, but never proven. That’s the definition of a cryptid. In the new Kindle All-Stars collection, Carnival of Cryptids, I got to read an entire group of short stories based on various types of cryptids.In addition, it allowed me to get to know a group of authors I had never read before and I found several of which I will be picking up their other books.
I was impressed with the consistent quality of the work over such a wide and varied style of writing. Starting with the story of a young boy in the opening chapter entitled Carnival of Cryptids by Bernard Schaffer, I was hooked. The boy’s story is interspersed throughout the book, offering a continuing narrative.
Other stories I really loved were Six Gun Diplomacy by William Vitka, Where is Captain Rook? by Jeff Provine, and The Cage by Simon John Cox .The book was edited by Laurle Laliberte and illustrated by Keri Knutson.
The other great thing about buying this book is all the money raised is donated to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.So take a chance and buy the book. I guarantee you will find new authors to follow and your purchase will go to a great cause
