Summary

Insomnia is a collection of eight exciting short stories (plus one bonus story) that tackle several different genres including action, science-fiction, horror, noir and thriller. Written by bestselling author, Jeremy Robinson, these stories include all of the action, imagination and twists that fans have come to expect, but they also contain experiments into subjects and voices not normally touched on in his novels.
“Insomnia” - In a world of super efficiency and equality, sleep is illegal and Feene keeps the masses going.
“The Eater” - Three children discover a writhing black puddle in the woods of New Hampshire.
“Harden’s Tree” - A group of teens visit a tree planted atop the ashes of a mass murderer from late 1800’s.
“Star Crossed Killers” - Two lovers, both deadly killers, compete for the same target.
“Counting Sheep” - A future terrorist gives an insomniac three minutes to fall asleep.
“Hearing Aid” - In the future, a deaf man is healed, but does he like what he hears?
“Dark Seed of the Moon” - Vampires live, and kill, in the eternal shadow of the moon’s polar crater.
“From Above” - In the future, a detective goes after terrorists who vaporized his city—and his arm—from space.
Bonus Story:
“Bought and Paid For” - A brutal character sketch for Scott Sigler’s The Crypt.
