A collection of short stories based deep in the horror genre, Unlike most same-author compilations, each story felt different - introducing each character in a unique style, giving each tale a horrific, yet unreplicated flavor.
The concept of the collection was fabulous. The author utilized a perfect tagline for his work, "Look at the Monster in the Mirror." The collection truly did focus on the horrors of the aptly titled Human Condition. You walk away from this story empathizing with characters you never thought you would be able to, while mortified at the gruesome turn their lives took within the stories.
The Human Condition by Mark Taylor will leave you guessing, keep you up, and have you reconsidering what you thought to be moral and immoral. I highly suggest this novel to both horror fans and fans of realistic fiction. It makes for a great introductory piece to Taylor's many other works as well.
You can find The Human Condition on Amazon, as well as several other locations.
