In March 2016, author Kneel Downe asked for entries to be submitted through his VirulentBlurb website for a charity anthology with a theme of STOLEN. The only stipulation was that the entries had to fit the theme and be under 1000 words long. The words came flooding in from all over the world and two months, and many hours of reading, arguing and selecting later, this is the resulting collection of 15 short stories and poetry.

Even though all the authors, some of whom have never been published before and others who are well established as independent writers, kept to the STOLEN theme, it was interpreted in many different styles and the collection spans the genres, from sci-fi to romance to psychological horror. Never one to shy away from difficult and hardcore topics, Kneel has chosen work that deals with both physical and emotional loss, from the poignancy of lost love, through the emptiness of stolen dreams to the brutality of abuse.

This may be a small book but it hits hard and will leave the reader with a lot to think about.
