Format: Paperback
What a wonderful collection of unique stories and talented authors. The works vary from first to third person, and each story is completely different. Some are predictable, yet others have twists. Anthony Randall's Colin and Sandy had a "Twilight Zone" feel to it and demonstrates a man should never cross a woman. There is enough diversity to appeal to readers of all genres and writing styles, and the proceeds go to charity which is reason enough to check it out. This is a great choice for a day at the beach or a morning commute.

This is an incredible collection of short stories from a variety of international Indie authors, who have come together to help raise money for MacMillan cancer care. It is a book to be picked up not only because this is such a worthy cause, but the multiple talents of the authors involved make this one of the finest collection of short stories you will ever pick up. From the elegance of Lesley Hayes opening story right through to Nico Laeser's beautiful tale at the end, this anthology is peppered with fantastic stories. It is almost impossible to single out any one story due to the sheer quality of each of them. I enjoyed them all, Dolphins Dance by Mike Billington was a wonderfully evocative piece for me, Katerina Sestakova Novotna has a touching story using Hawaiian mythology and traditions as a backdrop. Brilliant stories from BL Pride, Sylvia Fae and Andy Updegrove and clever tales from Tom Benson, Luicinda E Clarke, Christoph Fischer and Eric Lahti. I could really list them all. This is the book to pick up for two great reasons. Number one, all funds go to a great cause and number two it is a superb and I will repeat that superb example of what a short story collection should be. Often books of short stories falter under the demand on an author to be consistently good with each tale they tell. Perhaps it is the sheer variety and individual talents on display here, that puts this up there as a fabulous book worth reading. Pick up this book today, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

This wonderful mix of short stories really fuels the imagination. The common theme of Relationships is crafted in a wide range of genres by talented authors, each with an original voice. Like Sci-Fi or Fantasy? Tales with a metaphysical bent? What about stories where fate spins the wheels? You’ll find all of this, and more, in “You’re Not Alone.”

I won’t single out an individual author, because they are all wonderful, but I will say the story that sticks with me the most involves a dream, where the dreamer, after waking, feels a desperate urge to travel deep into the desert, to visit his grandfather. This story reminds me of different accounts in The Teachings of Don Juan by Carlos Castaneda. If you’ve read any of Mr. Castaneda’s work, you’ll know that I’m referring to parallel dimensions within our own reality, and in our dreaming.

For anyone who enjoys an eclectic mix of stories, this anthology is the perfect go-to read.
Even for those of you who don’t typically delve into short story collections, I believe that “You’re Not Alone” will be a pleasant surprise. Best of all, the net profits are donated to the Macmillan Cancer Support. I honestly can’t imagine a better cause.

An engaging set of stories, well-written and entertaining from an international cadre of indie authors. Written for a good cause too: to celebrate and support lives touched by cancer, all the proceeds go to the Pamela Winton tribute fund in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. What could be better than a 'twofer'--great writing for a great cause? The collection of stories features a diverse set of authors, focused on telling stories about relationships that vary from triumphant to wistful tributes to what might have been. Others that drift into unreality or just don't end well at all! There's something here for everyone with more than a passing interest in love expressed in split seconds or lasting bonds. You may be drawn to this book because of the writers you already know, but you'll be delighted to meet a host of new ones too! That makes this lovely book way more than a 'twofer'. FIVE STARS!

Now this is going to be tricky. How can I review a book that features so many authors, some whom I am familiar with, others less so?

I'll start with an admission. I treated this much like an LP (remember those) or a CD of an album I had bought, where I knew some of the more famous tracks. That's right - I read the authors I had previously read first. Not sure why I did that, but maybe it was because I had read a book of theirs already, in most cases it had been a full length novel they had written. Fully understanding the difficulty of condensing a story into a novella format, I wondered if they could pull it off.

Before I dissect the stories themselves, I would like to pay a special tribute to Ian D Moore for pulling this off - bringing so many authors together was no easy feat, and yet with You're Not Alone, that's what we have right here.

Add to the fact that the proceeds contribute to a worthy cause - Macmillian Cancer Care, and there is yet another reason to buy this book.

Readers of course, will want to know what it is all about. Here goes.

There are stories that pay an obvious nod to people affected by cancer, and I pay tribute to them for tackling such a hard subject. My own father went from an apparently healthy man to death's door within a matter of weeks, once this brutal disease had taken hold. The fact he had long left the marital home was irrelevant. Whatever differences he and my mother had did not disguise the fact that he was a human, and this disease tore him apart.

I suppose the overriding theme of these stories in You're Not Alone is that whoever has been touched by cancer, there is some hope, some feeling that it can be beaten.
