Abnormal Side Effects
Suicide, depression, anxiety, bullying, PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and more. These are all the abnormal side effects of life. We have warning labels on just about anything nowadays. Almost...but life.
"Abnormal Side Effects" is an anthology written by Robert J. S. T. McCartney. Society prefers to drown out many of these as a lesser matter of concern. Instead, they push the lives of celebrities in our faces, promote unhealthy habits, demoralize and desensitize us. Some people encourage others that are in need of help and are suicidal, that "they should just kill themselves," and more absurdities.
Each tale offers a unique vision to the reader. You will explore just an inkling of the many side effects one experiences in life. Something that so many people do, on a daily basis.

He discovers a small weapon's stockpile and various files, involving affairs foreign to him.
As night begins to set in, the family is involved in one of our government's most heinous and dastardly secrets involving entities, not of this world.

It's too late. It already knows where you are.
