5.0 out of 5 stars Collection of compelling short stories based on a grim yet fascinating idea, 10 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Machine of Death: A collection of stories about people who know how they will die (Kindle Edition)
The machine of death is a compilation of short works from a huge range of authors centred around the idea: "What if there was a machine that could predict how you die?" - The catch being that the machine only gives an often cryptic clue as to the cause with no time or specific circumstances but is always right. If you are comfortable with the grim subject matter then I would thoroughly recommend this.

The stories range from the macabre to the amusing and in some cases uplifting and show the broad range of imagination used by the various authors when interpreting the premise and how it would impact the lives of normal and not so normal people. It is difficult to further review the book due to the amount of different authors other than to say that I couldn't put it down.
