A reluctant immortal and his oft-reincarnated, perennially short-lived soulmate. A housewife so frustrated, she has a consensual and fully-informed affair with a demon. An unlikely friendship between a mistreated young girl from a windblown desert town, and the spectral gunslinger she summoned to exact revenge. These are just a few of the worlds you will explore within the pages of this upcoming anthology, and just a few of the characters you will meet there.
Each story relishes in the strange and unusual, the dark and colorful, the humor and humanity of the absurd. You will be transported to vibrant, surrealistic locations, and be surprised by the familiarity you find there. You will meet peculiar people, only to realize they are strange in the same way you are.
All fiction is a form of transportation. So let yourself be transported to these strange new worlds.
