Tall Tales on the Iron Horse--A Review
Topic: Book Review

Every so often, a book comes along that not only captures your attention, but holds you under its power long after you have turned the final page.  Tall Tales on the Iron Horse, written by Colin P. Davies, is just that sort of book.

In today's world, it is difficult to find new ideas, especially within science fiction.  Mr. Davies' has found the wellspring of new ideas and added his own fresh voice, creating a book that is bound to be read over and over again. 

Words do not get in the way in Tall Tales on the Iron Horse.  Colin Davies does not add any details that are unnecessary and the stories within this book move forward at a quick and smooth pace.  His voice is fresh and energizing.  The closest comparison I can make to these tales is to Rod Serling's Twilight Zone stories.  Even then, Mr. Davies does not copy the master storyteller so much as stand beside him.  I look forward with anticipation to future works from Colin Davies.
