book review: Checkmate and Other Stories

I have read Mr Anderson’s work before and expected a good solid read with these tales.

The first tale was very different from what I have come to expect from this author. Written in present tense it jarred me at first but it fit the story perfectly. The oddness of this tale is the perfect creepy for a night time read.

The second tale is more what I expected. With great research and an understanding of the Canadian presence in the war it was both touching and sad.

The third tale was fun. I learned something about Canada that I didn’t know about as a new resident to this country.
