    Description
    Life is but a series of encounters — with people, places or even memories. Have you had an encounter that's spun your life out of control? An encounter that's changed you irrevocably? ENCOUNTERS is a potpourri of five sumptuous stories involving a motley crew of protagonists — from a simple agarbatti salesman to a dynamic psychiatrist, from a forensic analyst to a retired accountant. Skating along the borders of fantasy and paranormal themes, the stories track incredible and poignant journeys of self-discovery, tracing the cathartic aftermath of fleeting encounters.

    Stories that leave a mark

    Encounters is a collection of five stories that the author describes as 'uneven, quirky creations'.
    I like this description... though the I would primarily describe them as touching (at times, disturbingly so), warm (even as they give you goosebumps), and unexpected.

    Each story has a pivotal encounter that changes the life of the protagonist.

    Stories of varying lengths, they are for believers... believers of the fact that there is a lot that we don't know.
    We expect things to be a certain ...

    Vivid Encounters!

    Encounters – Someone’s Always Waiting has five stories and when you finish the last one you want more, much more than what the author has shared. It is like a peek into the beautiful garden and you have just had a glimpse. Sumana writes and lays it all out for the reader to enjoy. The stories are simple enough with a hint of paranormal but to call them simple is to deceive the reader. I was not too keen to read this book fearing it to be horror but I am glad I picked it up on a friend’s recom...

    Eerily beautiful

    Honestly, I cannot seem to find too many words that can describe what I feel about this book. The stories are simple and yet so powerful. For every story, I thought the beginning was so mundane and everyday. And then one moment, just one moment, that one moment which changes everything. Like a smooth curve in a smooth road. It isn’t something that takes you by surprise; you’ve infact been expecting it. So you aren’t like shaken up or surprised; you’re not jumping out of your seat. But there i...

    Interesting set of paranormal stories

    Good variety of stories taking on different paranormal aspects and addressing different social messages. Very well written set of stories with a nice regional flavor with mention of local cuisines and appropriately placed local words. The stories flow seamlessly allowing reader to finish the entire set in one sitting. I would highly recommend this collection.

    Amazing stories, amazing writing!

    Sumana Khan's new book, Encounters, is certainly one of the best I've read this year. The stories haunt you, titillate you, mesmerize you, make you think, but above all, entertain you. A perfect book for this winter!
    The language is impeccable, the narration taut, the characters real. All the stories come with skull-spinningly awesome twists in the end (two stories are particularly creepy!). But what makes this collection of short stories incredible is Sumana Khan's sheer brilliance of story...
