Flower of Scotland 1 (William Meikle)

Flower of Scotland 1
William Meikle
Amazon Digital Services
Fiction, Collection/Fantasy/Horror/Sci-Fi
***+ (Okay/Good)

DESCRIPTION: A boy who longs to grow up gets more than he bargained for... a woman meets a stranger on a fateful train trip... Twitter posts from an unknown source puzzle a young man... a young boy's father helps him deal with bullies in a very special way... These and other tales by author William Meikle are compiled in this collection.
A Kindle-exclusive title.

REVIEW: Like Meikle's other works, he keeps these tales short and sweet. Unlike the previous collection, though, I found a few of these stories repetitive, using very similar themes with very similar outcomes. There were also some minor yet irritating formatting issues; parts of sentences or paragraphs missing, for instance, and a glitch that rendered the last few stories completely in italics. On the whole, they're not bad, though.
