This is a good collection of stories about madness with a broad range of styles. As with any anthology, not all the stories might appeal to everyone. I personally really liked T.D. Ricketts' stories as they stood out for me (but I tend to like more magical realism rather than realistic stories). But all the stories have an interesting outlook on madness and this anthology is to raise money for a great cause.
This is was written by a multiply authors (16). It was all centered around the same theme of madness or tormented minds. All proceeds will be donated to a Houston area organization that helps Vets with PTSD.which was great. I really enjoyed getting to sample all 16 writers too!
So some of the stories I wasn't sure if they had different meanings? I feel kinda stupid because there were a few stories I had to reread because I didn't fully understand them and probably never will but overall it was good.
I received a free copy from one of the authors, in exchange for an honest review. The short stories in this book are quite captivating, and show that each author has a very imaginative writing style. I was quite pleased with the different stories in this book. Each story focused on madness, but most of them were fairly realistic in at least some every day detail. It’s a collection that will keep you reading, until you finish it. It is well worth the price listed, and the great thing is that the proceeds benefit veterans. This collection reminded me somewhat of Edgar Allan Poe stories, with a modern twist.

This book is ideal for those who love a good story but dont have the time to sit and read a full novel. This collection of stories are all different but all do the same thing.. Make you stop and think. Each author has brought a story to the table that will captivate you making it hard to out down til you're finished with it.
