Murdering your way to the top. Eating the houseguests. Is there nothing that will sate your desire for death?

The Human Condition stays away from the fantastical and roots itself firmly in the possible, the actual depths of our psyches, cutting away with surgical precision to reveal 17 stories that explore horrors that are oh, so real.

The unperceivable fear of someone taking your family. The unrelenting dread of having your memories stolen. Being locked away never to be found.

These are horrors you might experience in your darkest nightmares … or enjoy in your wildest dreams. This collection of short stories samples the darkest desires of humankind, seeing how far you are willing to be pushed into the reality of The Human Condition.  

Includes the critically-lauded stories: “Bobo” and “Christmas at the Mill”.
