It is very rare for an author to be skilled in different genres. It requires a special talent, a skill to look at different situations of life from a specific stand point and put it all together in one beautiful (or scary) story. Roland Allnach achieved that in Prism. Collection of Allnach's best short stories, it is the exact thing you will need to determine what genre is missing from your life. From horror to humor, it keeps you entertained through the whole book.
One of the my most favorite ones had to be story called "11". It was about a man who lived his whole life in fear of a man who he thought was following him from the very childhood. The whole story is just so messed up, it's definitely going to make you say "WTF" couple of times. There were few stories that weren't completely my style but I enjoyed them all together.
Roland Allnach, after working twenty years on the night shift in a hospital, has witnessed life from a slightly different angle.

Both books have received unanimous critical praise and have been honored with a combined total of twelve national book awards, including honors from National Indie Excellence, Foreword Reviews, and Readers’ Favorite.Prism marks Roland’s third stand alone publication.
