In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future Kindle Edition
Tomorrow is coming whether you’re ready or not.
In Darkness, Delight: Fear the Future delivers twenty-two strikingly original tales of terror from Bram Stoker Award®-winners, bestselling authors, genre stalwarts and rising stars.
Includes Emmy-winning, New York Times bestselling author and world-famous magician Penn Jillette’s delightfully wicked short story “The Pain Addict,” which was adapted for a hit sci-fi anthology television series and is available here exclusively for the first time in book format.
Be warned: these are not science fiction stories with a dash of dread. These are visions of the horrifying futures that await us all.

Due to real life distractions, I've been reading at a slower pace lately, so I decided to take notes on this one as I went along because there are a lot of stories in here. In all honesty, I liked almost all of the tales included within, but below I'm going to mention, (in no particular order), a few that stood out the most to me:
What It Takes by Phil Sloman. In a volume of futuristic horror tales, various self-improvement implants take center stage. Who doesn't want to burn off a little belly fat and improve their libido at the same time? BellyBurn technology! It'll change your life.
Noise by Max Booth. Another implant story, this time it's all about the upgrades. For just a few dollars more....
In The Sluggie Rebellion William Meikle started off by making me chuckle a bit and then the chuckle died in my throat. So yeah, this story was awesome.
Who knew Penn Jillette wrote stories? I had no idea! I've often thought it would be helpful if I could tell how my pets were feeling. At one time in my life, I wished doctors could feel what I was feeling. In The Pain Addict, they can. This could be extremely helpful in regards to diagnostics, right? But what about the down side? Read this and see.
Seeking Harmony With the Infinite by Evans Light. With only minutes to spare before the asteroids hit, destroying life as we know it, two poor people seek shelter while the rich are safe in their bunkers.
Lastly, I am not familiar with some of these authors but Marshall Moore with his terrific and horrific tale Husk, Ben Lawrence with his narrative Should've Read the Fine Print, Blanche, (another story of implants/surgery gone wrong), and Dominic Cancilla's entry Locusts were all noteworthy and I'll be looking for other works from these authors.
As always, I am honored to have been asked for my thoughts and here they are. These dark tales of the future include both natural disasters and man made. AI revolts and and malfunctions. Equipment so well made it outlasts humanity itself. If these are subjects that pique your curiosity as they do mine, this volume is for you! (Plus look at that KILLER cover!)
