"no good deed is a fresh and diverse anthology on the theme of help. it combines both light, humorous stories and those underscored by an emotional resonance. it is a worthy read, both in terms of the cause it supports and the writing it contains.
variety is the key here, with a mixture of established writers and newer voices responding to the book’s central theme through realism and familiar domestic settings or by extended metaphor and striking flights of imagination. whatever your reading tastes, you should find something to satisfy them here.
this book is also a timely reminder that the world is stitched together by acts of kindness and support in the face of crisis - these rarely go acknowledged and often go unrewarded, but are always worthwhile." k.m. elkes, author of All That Is Between Us
"the talented authors anthologised in No Good Deed show us what it means to be human when faced with adversity. Whether our struggles are personal or communal, private or global, these stories demand we bear witness to what is happening in the world around us." Tino Prinzi, author of There’s Something Macrocosmic About All of This
"these stories are insightful and incisive, demanding the reader's attention. the writing is superb in every case: bold, confident and illuminating. each author provides us with a fresh view of the theme, and every story is vivid and gripping. these stories deal not just with our world as it is, but consistently challenge us to ask how that world might be different. they are confident pieces, and deservedly so." c.g. menon, author of Subjunctive Moods
