Oddities & Entities
"There's more to this world than flesh and bone." Set in the mysterious space between the everyday world and an existence just beyond reach, 'Oddities & Entities' traces a path through the supernatural, the paranormal, and the speculative. With moments of horror, dark humor, and philosophical transcendence, these tales explore a definition of life beyond the fragile vessel of the human body. Published 2012, All Things That Matter Press
"When all that's left is broken, which piece do you pick up first?" So the question stands, and seeks fulfillment--a path reaching from the shores of a doomed paradise, through an illusory reality, and ending in a devastated future. Remnant is both the sum of these tales and the element that binds them together. Published 2010, All Things That Matter Press
