Review by Anne-Marie Reynolds for Readers’ Favorite: 5 Stars! ‘Possum Stew by David W. Thompson is a collection of spine-tingling, chilling short stories. It starts with the New Year vampire and a story is told for all the big holidays. Dark tales of ancient spirits and mythology, fairies, vampires, and more, all dark, all twisted, and all unforgettable. Miriam is a sweet young girl – until she marries Connor, who changes her ‘life’ forever. Nina and Benjamin have the perfect marriage, swearing they will never leave each other. Nelson goes hunting for a gobbler for Easter dinner but finds more than he bargained for. Kate heads out on her boat after an argument with her mom and soon runs into trouble but help comes from an unexpected quarter. Immerse yourself in these and other dark tales but don’t turn out the light, don’t close your eyes, and dare to turn another page.
‘Possum Stew by David W Thompson is a great collection of short horror and supernatural stories. Every story offers you something completely different from the last one, some sending shivers down your spine, some plunging you deep into a horror-filled chasm. Every story has been carefully crafted to draw you in and hold your attention and each revolves around a particular holiday. Some stories will have you questioning your own sanity and some, well, you won’t be able to tell if the story is real or just a dream in the protagonist’s mind. David is clearly talented with a gift for inviting you into his stories, letting you experience the terror and the horror for yourself. This is Stephen King meets the Twilight Zone head-on and the result is a fantastic mix of stories that will keep you entertained and hooked all the way through.

About David W. Thompson: David W. Thompson is an award-winning author, a native of Southern Maryland, and a graduate of University of Maryland, University College. David’s love of the written word began early in life. He claims his first writing effort was “Dick and Jane” fan fiction when he was six years old- no doubt with a dark twist!
After his family and cheesecake, reading was his first love. It exposed him to people, cultures and ideas he’d never experience otherwise. Writing was a natural extension of this “out of body” experience as characters act as tour guides to their worlds, and their possibilities. He hopes to honestly convey the stories that they whisper in his ears.
When he isn’t writing, Dave enjoys time with his family and grandchildren, kayaking (mostly flat water please), fishing, hiking, archery, wine-making, and pursuing his other “creative passion”- woodcarving.
Often bloody, habitually dark, always original!
