Over his career, Daniel R. Robichaud has dabbled with the fantastic and the terrifying in unique ways. His latest collection gathers together fourteen of his unique visions of worlds and people similar to our own but impacted by speculative elements. In this collection meet:
Outlaws fleeing a bad bank job only to learn they carry real horror with them.
Half-brothers divided by racial lines sharing a rite that will erase their differences and transform their relationship.
A doctor bringing hope to an African village and dispensing nightmares.
A father discovering the real reason there are so many abandoned shoes in the Washington D. C. Metro.
A new spin on vampires and those who hunt them.
These fourteen fabulist fictions peek into alternate pasts, the unseen present, and even speculate futures we might be hurtling toward with a careful eye toward character, emotion, and lyrical prose.
