Review of ‘Corliss and Other Award Winning Stories’

Posted on Updated on

Corliss and Other Award Winning Stories is a collection of short stories by Heather Haven. This collection of murder, mystery and suspense has the common thread of humanness throughout, from the title story of Corliss, a young woman who must go to great lengths to protect her future, to Jemma, a bulldog who is more human than most of the humans in the stories in this outstanding collection.

Haven writes with a steady and accomplished hand, packing a ton of suspense into a very tight space. The results of this skill are an inevitable explosion at the end of each story. This is short story writing at its best. You’ll want to re-read all of these stories many, many times.

Five of five stars.
