Music from a Strange Planet

Music from a Strange Planet is a visionary collection of short stories that explores thoughts and emotions that will work their way into your mind and your soul. Each short work of art gives the reader a glimpse into another world, some human, some insect, some a dreamlike state that cannot be contained in a physical form. To the attentive reader, the profound meaning of each story will give them an opportunity to reflect and ponder their own vulnerabilities.

This is a collection of thought-provoking short stories. Each is different in plot but similar in their well-crafted narrative and thoughtful commentary on life. From the first story, “Mastering Surface Tension,” to the last, “The Sheen of Ice On Snow.” Several have titles that give a hint as to what they are about, like “ Night People.” Other titles make you wonder what the short story will be about. Each one gives a different creative perspective on several issues that many people will be able to relate to. The stories cover several genres, including romance and horror.

This is a fascinating and memorable collection of stories that makes it difficult to pick a favorite. Two stories that stood out to me were, “Music From a Strange Planet” and “So Sorry For Your Loss.” The first is about a girl named Lucky Bee and her peculiar talents and gifts of prophecy. I loved how she used her talents to help those around her and the general feel-good vibes it gave. The second story contains an alluring mystery and is brimming with intrigue. I love a good thriller and I felt this one was perfectly executed.

Music from a Strange Planet is a collection of captivating short stories that range from light-hearted stories to gripping thrillers, while others touched on deeper subjects. Going from one to the other makes it so readers are kept on edge, unsure of what author Barbara Black has in store next.
