This collection of short stories contains work from nine authors, showcasing their works of fiction. This book includes stories of crime, adventure and horror, some comedy to make you laugh and a touch of the supernatural to leave you sleeping with the light on. Whatever your tastes, this book holds a new favourite story for everyone. Travel between these distinctive worlds bound together by one all encompassing weave of storytelling.
Experience the mystery and excitement of exploring a world populated with creatures unlike any you have ever seen, ghouls that feed in the darkness of the London underground in The Orphaned City and the strange patient who stalks the halls of a mental asylum in Inferiority Complex. Then discover worlds where humans themselves are the most curious species of all, the charming smile of the mysterious Jack in Knowing Jack and the devious mind of Red in The Path I Set Upon.
Will the next story scare you, or make you think differently about the world? Will it spark into life a new idea, the kind that Jake develops from an overheard conversation in Dreamworld. Or question our very existence, like the revelations of Professor Westerham in Reflection. It might even lead to a dangerous hunt for untold riches, which Ryan experiences in The Hassam Legacy.
Marvel at the strength of Helen after dealing with death in Coming of Age. Feel the icy terror that claws at Meg when she hears her parrot speak in Scared to Death. Each story hides a secret, a twist that awaits discovery by an adventurous reader. Come and share our worlds.
