    This is a collection of dark tales, a mix of sci-fi, supernatural and real world horror by three authors all with their own distinctive styles. There are lots of imaginative ideas and twists here, and anyone who likes this genre should find something they enjoy here. I liked the variety of it, and the fact that the stories were short, sharp and focused. Highlights for me were To Play the Game, Just the Three of Us, and Disturbance. A good read.
