E.J. Newman’s debut anthology is a dark and twisting journey across the urban landscape, mining the rich seam of human frailties with insight and humour. The stories traverse the magical and the mundane, where supernatural beings are indistinguishable from their mortal counterparts in their complexity and complicity.
“Newman is unafraid to explore the darker side of fiction and, by extension, life. The stories are by turns touching and funny and heart warming. And dark. In places very, very dark. Leave the light on.”
DAN POWELL, 2010 Yeovil Literary Prize winner
“Gods, demons and angels inhabit these pages, as much at home as the cheating spouses, spurned lovers and ugly, foul-mouthed orphans. Newman is a powerful emerging voice in dark fiction. I’ll be watching out for more of her stuff. You should too.”
ALAN BAXTER , Author of ‘RealmShift’ and ‘MageSign’
