If you are looking for and interested in a series of short stories, novels and a novella (longer than a short story yet shorter than a novel) then look no further. By picking up a copy of Illustrated Short Fiction of William H. Coles: 2000-2016 by William H. Coles, you will enjoy over 40 written works covering themes from unconditional love to struggles and choices.

In this collection, William H. Coles has carefully chosen a collection of pieces that gives the reader something to chew on, ponder and digest pertaining to how we as people interact, connect and sometimes judge each other. William H. Coles displays in this book how we believe that we’re the judge and jury in not only our lives but in our interpersonal relationships. An example of some great stories that you will discover along with the journey, passion, and challenges of life are The Gift, Suchin’s Escape, and Dilemma.

As I began to read stories like The Gift, Suchin’s Escape, and Dilemma, I was immediately pulled in and longed for more. William H. Coles holds nothing back in any of the stories contained in this book. In actuality, you may see your life or those closest to you in a number of these stories. Or maybe a story that can easily fit into your favorite TV show, documentary or movie. It is highly suggested that you pick up a copy of this book and tell your family and friends.
