You Only Get One Shot by Kevin J. Kennedy and J. C. Michael

This was a clever novella that not only showcased these two authors’ story-telling ability, but their short-story ability too.

Four authors are sent the most chilling email ever: my friend’s suicide was all your fault, so you will pay. Post a short story on the internet…the best story will mean its author survives. The other three, alas, won’t be so lucky. Cue four short horror stories. I’ll be honest, horror really isn’t my thing…I find myself doing some heavy-duty eye-rolling with this genre…but I did recognise very competent writing and actually found this rather good.

The totally unexpected final twist was an excellent ending. I’ll certainly look out for more work by these two authors—separately or together—as long, of course, it isn’t horror.
