Sparks from the Fire

by Rosalie Parker
Release date: June 2018
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, horror, short stories

"There are many ways to tell a story... It is a question of choosing the right one." – Sparks from the Fire

The stories in Sparks from the Fire explore a wide variety of familiar characters and settings, yet there is always something else — a shadow world that haunts, disturbs, and threatens. Sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, recluses and lovers — all find themselves shifting between realities: the prosaic and the mystical, even between life and death. The horrors and wonders of these parallel existences are often glimpsed, sometimes revealed, and occasionally overwhelm. These nineteen tales inhabit a terrain in which the uncanny may at any time intrude into everyday life.
