What could be better than finding a great collection of diverse and interesting short stories to read?
Being able to help Japanese orphans while you're taken away to another world!!!
Kizuna: Fiction for Japan (a charity anthology) was put together by a large group of talented writers contributing their time, effort, and all these wonderful stories for free to give YOU even more reason to help the tragic victims of the recent earthquake disaster in Japan.
Containing an incredible 75 authors from around the world; you'll find a variety of genres including horror, pulp noir, historical fiction, weird twisted tales, new wave and plenty more inside this deliciously well written volume.
Some stories are short, some are medium length, but each tells a unique tale that will make you want to hunt down these authors individually and pick up as much of their published work as you can!
If you pick up just ONE BOOK this summer, make it Kizuna: Fiction for Japan, you seriously won't regret it!
When I began reading the e-book I started noting down quality stories to reference in this review, and then gave up. I might as well have listed all of them. There is something here for everyone, and all of the highest quality. And what a great joy it is to read translations of stories I might never have come across otherwise.
I cannot recommend this book enough. Buy it and enjoy.
The selections are quite short, making this an easy book to pick up and read in snatches. Each story leaves the reader thinking about it, even as they wonder what the next holds in store.
One thing which makes Kizuna highly unique is that the authors contributed their work free of charge and are donating proceeds from sales to quake relief in Japan.
I urge everyone to pick up a copy to support this effort. You won't be disappointed. With over 70 short stories and poems, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
