From J.S. Breukelaar, author of novels American Monster and the critically acclaimed Aurealis Award finalist Aletheia, comes a collection of twelve of her darkest, finest speculative fiction tales, including 4 brand new works, one a novella. While Breukelaar’s stories live in the realm of the uncanny and the unexpected, in the dark corners and the spaces in between, their themes are all too familiar. Whether dealing with loss in the gothic strangeness of “Union Falls,” revenge in the weird mythos of “Ava Rune,” discrimination in the wreckage of “Collision,” or displacement in the heartbreaking dystopia of “Glow,” these memorable works shimmer, spark, and at times even writhe on the page.
