This is an interesting anthology that I found due to the Giveaways program. I didn't win that giveaway, but it was cheap enough on the kindle that I figured on trying it.

15 short stories that focus on themes of ISOLATION and DESPAIR. 13 authors gather together to tell the tales of what they believe best suits this theme. Each tale is also accompanied by a illustration which I felt was very unique.

It was a good read. The title speaks as to what you will find. I am used to reading more horror based books however liked this book overall. I would not mind reading more from some of the authors in this.

Another really good collection

This is another great collection of dark fiction. Perhaps give it a miss if you want to be cheered up. As the title suggests, no laughs here. A really good read though if you like the darker things in life.
