Shaun's "The Shuttle" and Mark's "The Bureau Of Lost Children" were also mentioned in James Everington's "Best Short Stories of 2013 (Somewhat Biased & Woefully Uncomprehensive)" list, which you can find at this link.

Thanks to them all and don't forget, if you've read it, it'd be great if you left a review!

Following on from the critical success of “ill at ease” comes volume 2, featuring seven original horror short stories, all of them guaranteed to give you the chills.

Joining the original trio of Stephen Bacon, Mark West and Neil Williams this time are Shaun Hamilton, Robert Mammone, Val Walmsley and Sheri White.

You will descend into an underground train station to uncover a dreadful secret and watch in horror as a paradise holiday turns sour.  You will see a bullied boy who’s helped by local history and share the anguish of a father, losing his child in a shopping centre.  You will take a trip with a cancer sufferer and share the pain of a couple, desperate for a child.  You will discover that history needs to be kept somewhere.

Seven stories, seven writers and you.

Prepare to feel “ill at ease” all over again.
