RECOVERY is a story about two brothers who have grown apart over the years. Ben's an alcoholic who had to go into rehab because of his out-of-control drinking, and Tommy hasn't spoken to his brother since he left rehab a few months ago. When Tommy goes into the store one day, he runs into his brother only to find him buying a case of beer. It's a sad and tragic story about lies and a damaged relationship.
This also includes a bonus short story, MARCI, where a high school kid's world is turned upside down when he finds out that he's being stalked. Sometimes being afraid of what somebody is capable of is the greatest fear of all.
