My Thoughts

A stellar cast of familiar (and some new to me) authors have penned a range of lockdown inspired tales.  As an author myself, I find short stories the hardest to write and am always in awe of other authors skills in that department. This anthology was a delight to read. I found myself dipping into it at odd moments to get my fiction rush. The range of content is delightful from the uncanny to the straight forward thrill read and from the edgy and tense to the softer more cosy read. 

This is the sort of read you can lose yourself in and although I don't read many short stories myself, I found myself rereading a couple of the most enchanting ones. I was introduced to authors i'd never read before and now my TBR pile is in danger of tottering over. 

This anthology has something for everyone and just to tempt you even more, isn't it great that 100% of the royalties will go straight to NHS Charities.
