Shooting Creek and Other Stories is a somber collection of dark, twisted short stories by Scott Loring Sanders. Shooting Creek contains fictional, yet authentic, stories of people trying to solve problems, no matter what the consequences may be. Dead-beat dads and kick-ass women doing bad, money-motivated things. “Frank’s Beach”, a story of a man who ran from his past, only to find himself in trouble after finding the body of a dead woman on a beach. Is it karma chasing him down, attempting it’s revenge after what he and his cousin Mickey did so many years ago? Johnny and his mom Patricia attempt to bury their revengeful secrets in the woods of “Pleasant Grove”. My favourite spine-tingling story, “Moss Man”, tells the story of a man driven by the strongest force of all – love.
I was sent a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher, Down & Out Books, via Netgalley.
