Albedo One is delighted to spread word of a new collection of short fiction by our Contributing Editor, David Conyers. We’ll let the eminent D. L. Snell and the collection’s blurb do the rest of the talking for us. But in short, this collection is highly recommended to anyone with a taste for the Cthulhu Mythos or the weird in general.
Collected together for the first time are thirteen tales of the best Cthulhu Mythos horror and weird short stories written by award-winning Australia speculative fiction author, David Conyers. A wartime spy rescues a woman from the Sahara who has walked unscathed from a massacre of a thousand men. A mother sailing the ocean on a family holiday finds herself lost on a cargo ship where all the crew are made of paper. A business man becomes trapped in his hotel room because gravity has unexpectedly reversed for him. A reckless driver commits a serious crime and is forced to see out his twenty year sentence as a dog. Every story is a nightmare from which the victims cannot escape.
The collection includes the following stories: “Dream Machine” (Australian Shadows Finalist), “The Nightmare Dimension”, “Cactus”, “The Lord of the Law” (Australian Horror Writers Fiction Award Finalist), “Sister of the Sands”, “The Dream Quest of a Thousand Cats”, “Winds of Nzambi” with David Kernot (Australian Horror Writers Fiction Award Winner), “Sweet as Decay” with David Witteveen, “The Swelling”, “From The Sick Trees”, “Homo Canis” (Australian Horror Writers Fiction Award Winner), “Six-Legged Shadows” with Brian M. Sammons and “Subtle Invasion” (Australian Shadows Finalist).
