Infinite Waters by Nicholas Rossis

I finished Infinite Waters by Nicholas  Rossis recently, and this collection of ten short stories is enjoyable.  The stories look at reality in a different way, and one of the stories explores what happens when a dream crosses over into reality.

The narrator meets a woman who wants inspiration for her writing, and the stories that follow are the result.  I like how many of the characters don’t have names; this leaves a lot to the reader’s imagination.  There are references to Greek gods, the Titanic, Star Trek, James Bond and Frankenstein.  The twists on the various references are imaginative.  I certainly see James Bond in a different light now.  While there is an element of creepiness in some of the stories, there are amusing moments also.

The stories are all well-written, but my favorites are James’ LifeWhat’s In a NameIs There a Doctor in the House and Two’s a Crowd.  Infinite Waters is well worth checking out.
