The marvelous thing about anthologies which contain a multitude of short stories is that you don’t have to read the entire book straight through from beginning to end. You can devour each story at your leisure, skipping around through the book, each time selecting a short story whose title pops an interest in your mind; this is akin to looking for your next book to read from your local bookstore by reading the titles on the spines of the books on the shelve and then selecting your favorite before looking into what the book is about.

The author’s selection for the title of this book is an apparent attention-getter as the word “luney” is usually spelled “looney”; the title also represents a simplified overall description for the kinds of stories this book contains, with each one having somewhat of a tinge of lunacy to them.

Each of the stories in the book are basically well-written and essentially concise, as it takes a certain knack in being able to have a relatively decent beginning, middle and end; which is what the author of this book apparently possesses.

The biggest distraction that the book has is the quintessential lack of a Table of Contents which prevents its readers, as I mentioned in the beginning of this review, from skipping around the various stories in the book, and thereby forces readers to read each story sequentially.

The author’s unfortunate lack of foresight in providing a table of contents precludes my having wanted to give Mr. Bowyer 5 STARS for his endeavor here, which is why I’ve given him 4 STARS. ( )
