Isolation Space

An Anthology Of Short Fiction
By Mark Cantrell

Published By Lulu

£9.99 | Paperback | ISBN: 978-1-4092-7030-0

STEP outside the Hive and see the world from a new perspective. Be warned – it can be an unsettling experience, but that’s only to be expected in the Isolation Space.

Beyond the portals of the Isolation Space are found those Souls that seethe against the common flow of consciousness. Mark Cantrell has merged with the flow, listened to the echoes, and returned to tell the tales that crave life in the human mind.

Here, twenty of those stories are bound into one thrilling collection of science fiction, fantasy and horror, with a few literary twists and turns that will fertilise the mind. There is something for everyone in the Isolation Space, if you dare to open the covers, breach the event horizon, and step forth into the worlds that lie within.

Beware, you might emerge from the Isolation Space unscathed – but never untouched.

  • First contact is a delicate and harrowing business, so when the aliens do drop in for lunch, be careful where you take them. The fate of the world rests on the menu…
