“‘I wear the chain I forged in life,’ replied the Ghost. ‘I made it link by link…’”
-Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
Link by Link is a collection of 9 stories of ghosts, spirits, and creatures unnamed, all come to teach lessons we won’t soon forget. From sweet Christmas tales to terrifying holiday hauntings, these stories take a dive into the past in the hopes of creating a better—or at least different—future.
As with anthologies you get a mixed bag of contents. Some stories were great, but some of them were not so great. It’s tough when writing short stories to get enough content and back story to get your reader to connect with the characters and a few of the authors were more successful . It’s hard to rate this because some of the stories deserve a 1 star, while others deserve a 3 or 4. My two favorites were Yesterday’s News and Between the Quiet.
