Seven Deadlies is a collection of short stories or novelettes, where each story explores one of the seven deadly sins in a contemporary and perhaps unexpected context. Each of the stories has been previously published as a stand alone title in the Live-Fiction series.
The idea was inspired by Krzysztof Kieslowski’s mini-series masterpiece The Decalogue – 10 short films set in 1980s Poland, each exploring one of the Ten Commandments through a contemporary lens.
Here are the sins, and the stories:
LUST – “The Dinner Party” Everyone wants something.
GLUTTONY – “SPIN” Too much food, or too much exercise?
GREED – “Prank” When money and ratings take over at a contemporary radio station
SLOTH – “I Agree” You really should read what you agree to on the web.
WRATH – “Cake Knives Don’t Kill” Taking matters into your own hands can have dire consequences when the issue is revenge.
ENVY – “No Room in the Bin” There’s no time like Christmas to inspire envy of what the neighbours have. And what they throw out.
PRIDE – “Botox Apocalypse” The consequences of looking good may not be what you expect.
