Review of "The Nettle Tree"
The Nettle Tree claims to be a genre stretching collection of strangely different western stories. I agree, it certainly is that. Of the thirteen short stories in the anthology, I found interest in two. The Nettle Tree and Welcome, Stranger both tickled my sense of adventure, curiosity and were entertaining. Beyond those, the rest were stories one might chronicle with the episodes of The Twilight Zone. I have read several western and fantasy novels over the past couple of years, but nothing like this which I get was the point of the book. For all of you out there that enjoy stretching your imagination, this book is for you. 3 Stars
