90 Minutes to Live

90 Minutes to Live
Compiled by Joel Kirkpatrick
ISBN:  9781936564330
Published December 2011 by JournalStone Publishing
Available Format: Paperback

My Rating:  ★★★★★

90 Minutes to Live is the 2011 edition of JournalStone’s annual short story anthology.  This year, the competing authors were given two themes that must be included in the stories:  a timed demise and a lock of hair.  From horror and science fiction to paranormal, fantasy and young adult, readers will find thirteen stunning tales sure to entertain.  You’re certain to find a favorite while you answer the question:  who will survive?

JournalStone has managed to find another group of extremely talented authors for this year’s anthology!  I’m sure they had to turn away a few as well.  I say, why not make several anthologies?!?  Alas, there is only one, and it is an amazing compilation, as always.  The majority of stories fall under the horror and sci-fi categories, but there are some notable fantasy, paranormal, and young adult submissions as well.  Some stories will completely creep you out while others leave you guessing; some will make you cry and some will give you a case of the giggles.  Either way, there is definitely something for everyone to love.

Grab yourself a copy of this fantastic anthology and finish out 2011 in a great way!
