Besides that issue, the stories take you away into different lives, from a ghost encounter, to complex marital issues (which seem to span a few stories, so interconnectivity adds to the interest) to the central and longest story "The Truth App.", a personal favourtie of mine, along with the wedding stories.
Glimpses is an apt title, for these stories are not just glimpses into the characters but also into the mind of the author. Despite the change of genres and locations, there seems an underlying warmth and poetic perception of the world, sometimes more worldly than at other times, but always reflective and thoughtful. I'm not a big fan of short stories and prefer to get into lengtier literature so I can really get into the characters. Glimpses achieved in many a short story an engagement and connection between me and the characters that novels didn't achieve.
Quite an achievement and a very enjoyable and touching selection.
For ‘Glimpses’ a new book by Hugh
A published author he is now indeed
And, I just know his book will succeed
The stories, twenty-eight in all
Will shock you, thrill, and enthral
Marcia Dumplin, obnoxious and spoiled
Gets mad when her demands have been foiled
Rusty, a successful Drag Queen
Was accused of being a has-been
In Needles Ms Gore learned her folly
When she came home to her cat Molly
A mother who tried to save money
Regretted her choice of Easter Bunny
These stories, Hugh wrote them so well
Each one with a twist in the tale
I urge you to purchase this book
One Glimpse and you will be hooked!
This is where short stories come in, and if you were to purchase this collection, you wouldn't be disappointed!
Roberts, the author, has crafted a selection of tales to satisfy pretty much everyone... except the very young! From horror, to mystery, to romance and reminiscing, there is a tale (or 5) for everyone.
I really enjoyed reading these stories, and despite me never having time to read, I finished this volume of stories within two days!
Looking forward to a second collection soon... hint hint!!!
Well written and highly entertaining.

There are twenty-eight stories in this collection that are sure to entertain everyone. I enjoyed them all but found one hard to read due to its gory descriptive nature. Horror fans will love it! The author has to be commended on his incredible imagination to create this wonderful collection. I look forward to his next book.
