I really like horror and I am a gamer, so I thought that I would really like this book. I was right. Each story is different, and yet they all include the adrenaline rush of winning or losing. Some are horror, some are science fiction and some are a little bit dark. However since there are different authors the stories each have a unique feel. In a world where all you need is a chip and a chair to be a millionaire there is so much at stake. I liked the variety of these stories and I also really like that there was a little introduction to each story. I am giving this book a 4/5.
In a world of chances, one decision can bring down the house, one roll of the dice could bring untold wealth, or the end of everything. In this anthology of all new short stories the players gather, their stories often dark, and always compelling.
The players and the played, this new anthology from Jonathan Oliver (Magic, End of The Road, House of Fear, The End of The Line, World War Cthulhu) brings together brand new stories from an international team of talented authors, each with their own deadly game. This collection is set to include a full house of top authors including Hugo award-winning American writer Pat Cadigan, Brit Gary McMahon, Mexican Silvia Moreno Garcia, plus Tade Thompson, Rebecca Levene and more!
