With money being tight these days, readers tend to stick with well known and established favourites to spend their money on. After all you want a quality read to help you relax and to escape the real world, yet there are times when you wonder whether to risk your cash on an unknown.

Usually this sort of thing only happens when a reader either has a little extra cash or their favourite author’s don’t have a new title out, so what are they going to do?

Well in short I’m a huge fan of the compendium, you get cracking stories from authors you love and then you get a chance to try some that whilst you’ve heard of, you’ve just not been sure enough to spend your cash on. All round, a great title and with some releases from some top talented names, all round give the reader an experience to savour.
