The inaugural Short Sharp Stories anthology, Bloody Satisfied, includes twenty-four top stories, and is introduced with a rollicking foreword by Deon Meyer. It is a collection of thrilling twist-in-the-tale stories that make good on the ‘Bloody Satisfied’ promise: slick and sexy stories that brim with danger and elements of the sinister; sophisticated stories that invent expectations and linger in the mind. 

Publisher: Burnet Media, now available by order from TATTOO PRESS
