Book Description

The future does not look bright . . .

Seven dark and gritty tales of what-if from Todd Thorne describe a troubled tomorrow on the small scale, from the eyes of a few people enduring it. These doses span a little dystopia, doomsday, technology run amuck, and the bad side of virtual reality. Six of these stories were previously published in this 33,000 word collection of darker days to come.

More About the Author

Todd Thorne resides in the Piney Woods of East Texas with his wife and two technophile sons. He's come to expect and appreciate labels of 'dark and gritty' as pertains to his writing and he feels the space-time continuum must grind to a halt the day he writes a lighthearted, cozy yarn. He's been fortunate enough to have a few tales published online and he intends to follow suit with a crunchy novel or twelve.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, dangerous - brilliant 10 Jan. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dark Doses is a tightly bound package of Dark Fiction and Horror that plays with your deepest secrets and pokes around in the frightened corridors of your mind. Not for the faint-hearted, this is psychological warfare that asks intelligent questions and provides the darker, more twisted set of answers.

From the dystopian control and the quiet revolution of `Chaperone', through the manipulative, soulless terror of Computer Programmable nightmares in `Game Over', and the frightening immersion in cyberspace and it's avatars of `Shadows in the Mirror'; the disturbing disquiet grows with the hard issues dealt with in `To Soar Free' (which nevertheless has an uplifting theme of freedom).

Following this; `Perfect Soldier' grimly shows what happens when Men play with Machines and the latter take over; `Playing with Fire' poses the old question about playing with History to fix the Present, and what happens when someone decides to care too much (even if it is for the best); and finally `The Fisherman', a wonderful piece of Flash Fiction that offers heartbreaking hope amidst the total eradication of life.

As an added bonus - all the stories have a foreword explaining the context of each piece, and its genesis; extra colour to an already rich palette of dark material.

A great collection by a promising new arrival to epub.
