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.
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.Read more ›
