Book Description

Here then is a book of short stories to take its rightful place in popular literature. The offerings presented in this collection are extremely varied in content—ranging from poignant family experiences, unusual romantic introductions and associated intrigues, through to true paranormal experiences and even bizarre medical experiments on dead people. In fact there is something to appeal to everyone, especially those readers who seek a lively imagination, minute observation and a keen sense of the irony of the human condition.
