Cover art by George Cotronis.

Take a walk on the wild side, through the twilight zone of dark and dangerous and dangerously personal terrain of Daniel Braum’s short stories. Navigate impossible worlds and hidden corners of our own with damaged men and women seeking love and transcendence. There is heartache, loss, and stark poignant truths in the dark places these stories fearlessly venture, but also magic, mystery, beauty and wonder.

Do you dare to dream? Do you dare to make a wish? Find out just who are the Wish Mechanics before answering. Braum effortlessly blends horror, science-fiction, and fantasy in his unique style and vision that transcends genre.

Dark, literary, weird-fiction stories such as How To Make Love and Not Turn to Stone operate with the Night Time Logic of Robert Aickman. The vivid, exotic settings evoke the majestic prose of Braum’s literary hero Lucius Shepard. The genre blending fantasy and science fiction of The Canopy Crawlers and Tea in the Sahara channel “the anything can happen spirit” of the late, great grandmaster Tanith Lee.
