From award-winning author Lynda Clark come sixteen engrossing stories weaving together elements of folklore, fantasy and speculative fiction, all of them in Clark's darkly humorous style. In 'Ghillie's Mum', shortlisted for the BBC Short Story Award, a shape-shifting mother needs to decide whether to compromise and stay in her human form, or lose her son. In 'Total Transparency', a man is learning how to live with a gradually disappearing wife. In 'Blanks', people are paying to create clones of themselves so they will never die. And in 'Dreaming in Quantum', there's a murder to be solved which echoes through dimensions only accessible in dreams.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In these high-concept horrors, even the strangest perversions of science and biology can feel sadly familiar, hinting at the fantasies we tell ourselves to explain, or run away from, the darkest moments of our lives.' - Nick Mulgrew, author of 'A Hibiscus Coast'; 'Lynda Clark's stories are thought-provoking, very funny, sometimes poignant, and always entertaining, with a whole Buffyverse-worth of plotlines and nice, fat, satisfying endings.' - Jo Lloyd, winner of the BBC National Short Story Award 2019; 'This consummate collection turns the normal strange and the strange normal: it is sublime weird writing, by turns compelling, arresting, amusing and unnerving.' - Will Forrester, English PEN; 'Clark's playful narratives take us to the edges of what it is to be human.' - Alison Kelly, TLS

“Τhis collection is an exciting, enticing, absurd blend of lore, mythology, Dystopia and fantasy.”

‘’In winter, there’s nothing. Maybe a lone dog walker skirting the edges, but usually just the crows in the yew trees above, cawing threats at the wood pigeons. Silence, punctuated by those harsh, jarring cries,... More
