Sandcastle and Other Stories: The Complete Edition
By Justin Bog
Genre: Short Fiction/Psychological Literary Suspense
The Complete Edition of Justin Bog’s First Collection of Dark Psychological Suspense Tales.
An award-winning collection, Sandcastle and Other Stories reveals twisted secrets that are mined like plutonium. These twelve literary tales are nothing short of an adventure through a roiling sea of emotion. With authenticity and eloquence, author Justin Bog holds a provocative and compelling mirror on the human condition.
“The stories are those of everyday people who might live next door or in the walk-up across the street . . . A man with a personal crisis takes a singles cruise – a woman leaves her toddler girl at the beach while having a romantic tryst – a B-list actor’s character is killed off – a girl is sucked below the sand into an underwater chamber . . . an old gardener who has dark secrets interacts with the bosses daughter in a most unforeseen way. The only commonality in these tight, little stories is they are unexpected. Having this book is like having a string of black pearls – each one slightly different, but each a perfect, dark, little gem . . . Bog paints pictures with words as Titian did with oil paints – startlingly detailed with deep perspective and rich complexity.”
–Rosi Hollenbeck, San Francisco Book Review

This wonderful set of short stories is the type of book that actually gets into your head, in a good way. It will leave you reading the pages again , recalling the characters complicated minds for whatever they are experiencing.
One was a reminder of how hard life is, being judged easily by others and doubted by the next.
“how he fell inlove with the beauty of isolation”
The other one longs for a daughter and a true love of a husband after her marriage failed.
“All her parents could do was watch and say I told you so later, which they did all the time.”
How a mother emphasizes equality in marriage, love for her children.
“They were my life now letting them know they were my entire world.”
These are just some of the justifications that this book imparts us morals, gives us an insight into the complex minds of humans.
