In seven stories that skilfully weave the mundane with the fantastic, Usman T. Malik explores the volatility of the supernatural to stunning effect. Twisted and delightfully grotesque, at once strange and familiar, these works of superlative imagination reveal the depth of timeless emotions: love and friendship that transcends all difference, greed, and bigotry that lurk in every corner, and injustice and uncertainty that color individual worlds.
An acclaimed new voice in fantasy writing, Malik employs his extraordinary craft and prowess to present a collection that will thrill, enchant and terrify the reader in equal measure.
WINNER OF THE 2022 CRAWFORD AWARD FROM THE IAFA (International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts)
