Reviewed by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers' Favorite

Tales Most Strange by Jeremy Hayes is a collection of short stories that will leave your imagination running riot. Twenty-four stories, all mysteries, some of them spine tingling, others downright chilling. Follow the story of the human scarecrows, hold hands with the man who gets lost on Mars and join a plane crash survivor as she wanders the desert alone. Meet ghosts, meet detectives trying to solve the strangest of murders and meet unusual creatures from another place. No matter what your tastes are, there will be a story in here for you.

Tales Most Strange by Jeremy Hayes was weird yet wonderful at the same time. The stories are the work of someone who has a very great imagination, perhaps one who revels in the macabre side of life. Each story left me wanting more, wanting the story to continue and, I have to say, each one ends with something of an odd closure to it – if they are indeed closed. Mr Hayes says that the inspiration for the stories in this book came from The Twilight Zone and I can quite see that as I used to watch it myself when I was younger. I could easily see these stories being included in that program and fitting right in along with perhaps a touch of Tales of the Unexpected. I must say I enjoyed the book very much and would like to read more from Mr Hayes – I understand that this is his fourth book.
