Lonely Souls is an e-book anthology edited by Gordon Van Gelder with four novellas Jan Lars Jensen, Eric Carl Wolf, Rand B. Lee and Chris DeVito. From official release/information:
Many science fiction writers view the novella as the optimal length—short enough to be read in one sitting, but long enough to build a world. And what better world can we build and examine, than the landscape of our lonely souls?
Then Eric Carl Wolf brings us to a grassy, cowboy-country, beef-herding planet as barren as the Old West in "Demands of Ghosts", where we meet a former assassin seeking anonymity and redemption.
In "One Day at the Zoo" by Rand B. Lee a young girl with special powers is "saved" from being experimented on by the closest person to her, her mother, who seeks instead to destroy her.
In a strange, violent, debauched future, an assassin confronts a new technology that enables immortality, destroying the value of death, and he begins a quest for oblivion, so goes "Final Kill" by Chris DeVito.
