Get Out or Die by Kim Cox
This is a delightfully comedic story about the adventures of Lana Malloy, a young woman who is able to communicate with the ghost to help them move on. When suddenly ghosts are able to possess her body, things get more out of hand than usual.
Restless Spirit by Elizabeth Delisi
Using her deceased son’s Ouiji board, a grief-stricken mother tries to contact him. Instead she reaches a living man using an Ouiji board in the same room in her same house but more than a hundred years in the past.
Believing in Dreams by Chris Grover
When a young woman’s mother dies suddenly, she begins having dreams of the grandmother she never knew existed calling her to travel to a hometown she’d never heard of to meet her destiny before it is too late.
Aliens Among Us by Elaine Hopper
Two teenaged heroes have trouble conceiving they are the only ones who realize aliens are taking over the bodies of the townspeople and it is up to them to enlist the aid of a disabled veteran who owns some weapons to save the town and possibly the world.
Neath Hallowed Halls and Ivied Walls by Maureen McMahon
Two old college buddies who went their separate ways are reunited for the funeral of their favorite professor. His death was ruled a suicide but they believe it was murder. As they investigate the death of their beloved professor, they realize these feelings they still have for each other are love.
Enigma by Sheryl Hames Torres
A policeman falls in love with his suspect. He works to prove the innocence of a young blind woman who has been found every five years, sobbing and covered in blood, sitting beside the brutally butchered, bloody body of a murdered victim. She doesn’t know how or why she came to be there.
Each of the stories in the Shivers and Screams, Visions and Dreams anthology were based on a paranormal thread. The book is a showcase of the vivid imaginations of its authors making this anthology a delightfully stimulating read. If you are the least bit interested in Science Fiction or the Paranormal this is a must read. Even those who don’t particularly care for the genre will find they enjoy these stories. I highly recommend Shiver and Screams, Visions and Dreams.
