The Far Side of Promise (Anthology) by Matthew S. Cox is an excellent collection of short stories by one of my favorite authors. Each story is so odd and creepy that I could not help loving it.

‘The Tower’

Interesting read

A collection of short science fiction stories with a bit of humour and a few twists in the tale. Available on kindle unlimited.

A Great Collection of Short Stories from the Mind of Matt Cox

Another great book, this time a collection of science fiction short stories, from the prolific literary mind of Matthew S. Cox. Though we share a name, we are not related.
I highly recommend this book.
