 The Unspoken was published in 2013 and is certainly a great anthology, as much so now as when it was first published.

From William Meikle:

"Johnny Mains and Peter Mark May at Karöshi Books have published THE UNSPOKEN as an ebook and paperback with all profits going to The Beatson Cancer Research Institute. We’ve sent them hundreds of dollars so far, and I hope to send them hundreds more."

Book description:

 Cancer is a monster. It hides, it lurks, and it pounces when you think it's down and defeated. In these 17 stories, established horror writers take the attack to the beast, fighting it the only way they know how.

A wealth of short story experience is on display here - and a noble cause draws the very best of these writers' efforts together in a hard-hitting collection that runs the gamut of chilling encounters with the foe in question.

I would normally pick highlights in an anthology, but as your reading pennies will go directly to the good cause, I figure you only need to know that you won't regret paying for this collection: there's stories that chill, some that frighten, some that offer hope, and others with the darkest of humours - yet all provide hope that by knowing and understanding such a relentless and indiscriminate enemy, we can better hope to eradicate it.

Pick this up, you won't regret it.

Read a great anthology and help out a worthy cause. The free sample on Amazon takes you into the depth and breadth of the super writing within its pages. Go to and find out more.

Thank you.
