Apocrypha Sequence: Insanity by Shane Jiraiya Cummings is the second book that I have read in Shane’s Apocrypha Sequence series. As Shane mentions in the foreword to each, some of these stories are found in other works.

The idea of producing the Apocrypha series was to collect works thematically. The works in Insanity are an ‘exploration of the human mind as it is pushed to breaking point.’

A wonderful collection of shorts by an author I admire, this is the last book I read in the Apocrypha Sequence.

These were pretty simple stories, but the author is back to writing the wonderfully colorful and rich characters I knew from earlier books in the sequence. The plots were really very simple, pretty much the opposite of "Inferno", which brought the focus much tighter around the characters themselves and therefore allowed them to really develop into interesting, tragic and heroic people.
