I am currently reading The Machine of Death, and loving it! My friend bought if for me as a Christmas gift last year. It is a satirical science fiction fantasy about a machine that predicts your death. After giving a finger stick blood sample, it tells you how you will die but not when or where. To give one example from the jacket, "You will die from Aids transmitted via a contaminated needle in the death machine".

It isn't completely dark and out there. It also explores how relationships change, after hearing predictions. Some of the stories (it is a collection of several different ones) are touching.
