Stillborn Gallery by Axl Barnes

Stillborn Gallery is a collection of short stories that depict characters dealing with depression, low self worth, pain and chronic illness. Each story also featured a unique piece of art at the end that I thought was really cool.

The stories are told from a Canadian point of view and I will be honest and say, I had a hard time understanding some of the phrasing and word usage. For those of you with queasy stomachs, be aware there are some gruesome scenes in these stories. If you love Splatterpunk, you will like this collection.

For me, the story that stuck out the most from this collection was “Natasha Suicide.” Natasha deals with her chronic illness in her own way. I understood this character well because I too suffer with a chronic illness.

This collection was an interesting read in character perspectives. It’s different, possibly due to the subject matter, than any book I’ve read this far. Check it out!
