I don't often read short stories as I find it hard to get "involved" with characters or situations in such a brief amount of time.

It wasn't the case with this book. There are many scenarios, emotional expressions and unexpected outcomes that I won't forget easily.

"The Borrowed Book" is a "safe" opening but it leads to darker territory with the atmospheric "Lost in the mist" and the heart breaking - and sadly topical - response of a family to their Son's military death, in "The Letter".

I don't know what Daniel Kaye draws on for material or inspiration but "Guilt" is a horribly real account of depression and bereavement.

Rather than imagining an author finding writing "cathartic", you can't help bu think that there is some savage soul bearing going on in this collection. "My true self" whether "true" or not, highlights Daniel Kaye's high level of self-awareness, coupled with an apparent low level of self-regard. This excruciating pairing reflects - for me - the equally awkward union of courageous writing and uncomfortable reading.
I really liked it.

This is a hugely entertaining read that satisfies all the senses. It is a real 'hard to put down' book of amazing stories. This author knows how to write!!

An excellent selection of short, dark fiction. Each of the eleven stories is well paced, nicely written, and there's some surprising twists. Highly recommended!

A wonderful collection of dark fiction tales. I thought all the stories were good, some great and one in particular, brilliant. Well worth the read and I hope to see more published. 5 stars from me.
