Robin's Review: Wow! This is an incredible collection of short stories of speculative fiction. B. Morris Allen has put together a combination of stories that show imagination and are extremely entertaining. Each story is beautifully written and thoroughly engrossing. I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag so I will say each story is unique and entertaining all its own, when it’s all put together, I can’t do anything but highly recommend “Chambers of the Heart”
It was my pleasure and honor to receive a free copy of this book from the author but that does not in any way affect my opinion in this review of these entertaining stories. #fantasy #sciencefiction #literaryanthologies #speculativefiction
