Although I wrote one of the stories in this anthology, I feel able to review it on the basis that I am just one of many authors who have contributed. It is a fine collection of stories that should suit most reader's ages and tastes. (Probably not those whose ages are still in single figures - however, if they are mature readers...) The fact that the authors have given their time and stories freely to benefit an important charity is a fine thing in itself, but the stories still need to be first-rate and, believe me, they are! If you love short stories, want to know what all the fuss is about or are minded to support the charitable aims of the book and its writers, I commend it to you.

I was given a free copy of this book by one of the writers and decided to give it a try. I'm normally a die-hard reader of the 'epic' non-fiction genre and so entered this anthology with a closed mind, picking one of the stories at random I was pleasantly surprised with what I found inside. 'Stolen memories' by Madeline Dyer is a first person tale told partially in flashbacks from the point of view of a young girl in a hospital of some sorts, being 'treated' by doctors who want her memories, which she can't recall, to help catch criminals. In essence it is (in my mind at least) almost a reverse style minority report, that is until the twist, which I shan't reveal, it is well written and fast-paced without feeling rushed like so many short stories often so, I look forward to reading the rest of the anthology and urge you to try it yourself, if all the stories in it are as good as this then there'll be something for everyone, and of course...it''s for charity. :D
