really liked it


‘Lullaby aims to portray this affliction with honesty, empathy, and understanding.’

The tears began and refused to stop as I read ‘Love is a Crematorium’ by Mercedes M. Yardley, the last story in this anthology, one of many I will never forget.

Not many genres other than Horror, in this reader's opinion, can so effectively tackle the harsh dark reality that is addiction for so many. One of whom I hold dearly in my heart, always, lost their battle from addiction so many years ago - in my mind - this book is for him.

Thank you, Mark Matthews and Wicked Run Press, for providing me with an advance eBook copy of Lullabies for Suffering: Tales of Addiction in exchange for an honest review
