    The Desert Here and the Desert Far Away...

    As a fan of short stories, I jumped on this collection!

    I've read Sakey's novel The Amateurs and knew I would enjoy this collection. I'd also read a couple of the stories previously in other anthologies - "Sex, Thugs, and Rock & Roll" & "Thriller 2: Stories You Just Can't Put Down"!

    This collection is only available here as an ebook, which I don't own, but I was able to download it in a PDF form elswhere, search and you shall find.

    The collection includes seven stories:

    The Days When You Were Anything Else - a great story about a father's love for his daughter, no matter how strained their relationship

    As Breathing - good story, great ending

    Gravity and Need - a tale of love, choices and consequences with some serious twist

    The Time Before Last - a one sentence story (literally)

    No One - another gripping tale of love lost and regret

    Cobalt - Y2K and dotcom millionaires

    The Desert Here and the Desert Far Away - the best story in the collection, a very fine piece about the war over there, the choices made and the choices made at home, 5 star quality

    There is also a bonus section after the stories, with a brief introduction by the author for each of his other four novels and excerpts from each. A sneak peek chapter at his next novel is provided as well.

    The stories have a little bit of everything - love, grief, need and cover a wide range of topics - family, friends, Y2K and the things you do to survive.

    I would like to see this collection and a few new stories added in put out in print, I think it would do well!

    Enjoy~
