Browse our black comedy ebooks….

Our black comedy genre includes stories which make light of subject matter usually considered taboo. They take topics and situations commonly held as serious, morbid, grotesque or calamitous, and explore them in a comical way. In some cases they satirically express the absurdity, insensitivity and cruelty of the modern world, or the futility of life. Black comedy stories, sometimes known as dark comedy, may cause you to laugh and feel uncomfortable at the same time.
