In this collection of short stories, Thaine Chase stirs some emotion and brings an occasional smile of satisfaction. Old Joe: An aged veteran dies rescuing school children from terrorists. Greggie, a seventeen-year-old kid and his partner guard a bare Korean hill. Below, he sees an old woman approaching a group of Chinese soldiers. Greggie rushes down the hill to help her and is transported into another world. Kevin Kelly’s father told him never to walk the Dock Ridge Road. He never knew why, but he did not walk the gravel path – until his father disappeared. Kelly walked the Dock Ridge Road and found himself in a waking nightmare. In The Beast, the last vampire on Earth and the last human battle it out, but who will win? The Chance is an engaging tale of a bride in an arranged marriage. It is a tradition, and she has no choice. Prepared to die rather than wed a man she never met, fate intervenes. Mr. Manes: The soul collector gives Mr. Manes a second chance at life. All he had to do is cross the intersection. Every time he tried, something happened and he was killed. But it did not end there.

In Tales From the Eastern Wind, Thaine Chase presents well written, thoughtful stories that stir the mind. All are dark and some are gruesome, but readers of the unusual will be titillated. The author has a vivid imagination that takes readers into surprising situations and sometimes surprising endings. Several stories could have been developed further, and some are rushed, losing an opportunity to shine. Nevertheless, for readers looking for something genuinely different, Tales From the Eastern Wind will not disappoint.
