The Rogue Bear : & Other Short Stories
Anastasia Cassella-Young's 'The Rogue Bear' and 'Small Blurb' are based on true stories. A "rogue" bear is when it attacks or attempts to get into a home. 'Small Blurb' is based on a true story about a "small blurb" a dead woman received in a NY newspaper after dying on the IRT subway line. 'The Writer' is a fictional accounting of the runaway imagination of a writer following the prediction of the immediate future in a painting above his desk. Murder and mayhem ensue. 'Just Like Grandma' is about a grandmother protecting her grandchildren from an awful alcoholic father who is abusive to the point that "Grandma" protects the children with a gun and her story of the aftermath of that decision. 'You're Supposed to be Scared' is a great Halloween story about a haunted house and the tour through that haunted house and what happens there. This is a very good read from the wild imagination of a bi-polar surviving writer!
