Mirror Images by Elizabeth Delisi   

Not Available at this time

A collection of stories to make you wonder...

When Cassie buys an antique compact, little does she know it can foretell the future...her future. Marjorie, a Florida girl unwillingly transplanted to Vermont, learns there's more to fear from the alien snowfall than just the cold. Neil Dallas's jagged descent from rock and roll singer to drug-addicted has-been is unstoppable...or is it?

Curiosity killed the cat-but what about a delivery man who burns to know what's in all those packages? In a future world where clairvoyants decide a defendant's guilt or innocence, trouble brews when the accused has stronger psychic powers than the judge. Wanda Jean and Vincent are the last living married couple, treated like the museum pieces-can they singlehandedly revive a dead institution?

Let these eerie tales take you to a place where nothing is as it seems-where the only thing you can rely on is unexpected...


"Reminds me of popcorn...if you have a little, you won’t stop, and the next thing you know you’ve finished the whole batch and are wondering when she’s going to pop some more."--Robert L. Iles, author of DEAD WRONG

Every short story in MIRROR IMAGES is evocative and absorbing. Each and every one grabs you from the first sentence, and carries you along. There is absolutely no going back once you've begun.

Elizabeth Delisi is a professional. She knows how to grab your attention and keep it. Her natural gift for characterization and setting is enhanced by sparkling diamonds of description and beautifully unique phrases that make you want to read them again and again. The story plots are wonderfully imaginative and very believable. I found myself thinking about H.G. Wells in some spots, wondering if Ms. Delisi is truly a seer of what the future of technology may hold for us.

I give MIRROR IMAGES a five star plus rating and encourage everyone to pick up a copy. And while you're at it, pick up a copy of her novels, FATAL FORTUNE and SINCE ALL IS PASSING, both of which are equally well written. reviewed by Maureen McMahon, http://www.maureenmcmahon.com, author of Shadows In The Mist and Return Of The Gulls, http://www.avidpress.com

Hang on for a breathtaking ride into the world of the macabre under Ms. Delisi's masterful touch. I highly recommend MIRROR IMAGES!"--Linda Colwell, author of WHEN THE LILACS BLOOM

Elizabeth Delisi's "Mirror Images" shivered me timbers and forced me to sleep with the lights on...reading because I couldn't put that book down. A master of romantic suspense, Ms. Delisi turns a dab hand toward storytelling that makes the reader think...and continue thinking long past "the end." A must read...and then, keep it handy because you'll want to read it all over again. Leta Nolan Childers, best selling author, letachilders.com

"Most people sit down with a short story anthology intending to read one - maybe two - of the stories, then set it aside for awhile. Don't fool yourself into thinking this will be possible with Elizabeth Delisi's MIRROR IMAGES. Captivating from first page to last, these tales of the unexpected keep you eagerly turning pages until the end, and then you'll wish there were more pages to turn. Haunting and memorable, a marvelous collection of modern-day fables. Four stars!" --Elizabeth Dearl, author of Diamondback and Twice Dead

"The Last Married Couple" This most poignant of Ms. Delisi's stories describes "The Last Married Couple." And poses this question, is true love ever out of date? Reviewer Lyn Morgan, Ivy Quill Reviews

Mirror Images is a must read for everyone who enjoys a spine tingling read. The six marvelous ‘Twilight Zone’ type narratives presented by Elizabeth Delisi in her well-crafted anthology Mirror Images will keep the reader on the edge of the seat. The nicely penned works are irresistible from the opening lines in the first tale and right on throughout the work to the last spell-binding narrative. This marvelous collection of modern day allegories will keep the reader turning page after page and wanting more when the last line is read.

Writer Delisi does her usual outstanding job in hooking the reader into each story and holding them tight on their thrilling, exhilarative roller coaster through the potent tales. The absorbing psychological journey made by the reader into the abrasion of the mind as its grip on sanity is released is terrifying to behold.

Not for the faint of heart! This is NOT a book for a late, stormy dark evening read when the power is out and candles are lit and the reader is sitting home alone.  Reviewed by: molly martin http://www.angelfire.com/ok4/mollymartin

5 STARS!

***** A collection of short stories by author Elizabeth Delisi. The very first story is titled the same as the entire anthology, Mirror Images. I cannot honestly say which I liked the most! All through the first, I thought This is excellent. They must have placed this one first to hook the readers. Then I read the second story. Woops! There went THAT theory! It is much like watching "Tales From The Crypt" or "The Twilight Zone". Each are awesome and pull you in quickly, but a bizarre twists will shock your system! A KEEPER! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ***** HUNTRESS BOOK REVIEWS (Reviewed by Detra Fitch)
