From the author of Disquiet Milk, comes Magic Rope, a new selection of modern gothic short stories.
Inspired by Victorian novels or film noir, Aedyn Jak's stories draw on elements of horror, the supernatural and the bizarre. The writer weaves the atmosphere into each story, as a character in and of itself. The stories lampoon the reader from place to place; the wild west desolation that is Beaufort Gulch, to a luxurious Paris in Drapes, to a nostalgic religious festival in Tainted Saint, set in Malta, to name a few.
There is a nugget of gold for each reader; a mysterious blue manor and its foreboding amnesiac owner, a group of bestial women who run a nail salon, to a little boy who's nail-biting night terrors seem to have more meaning than is apparent.
Each story is punctuated by a carefully crafted illustration by the writer himself and it comes true that the writer's psychology and film background come immediately into play in the words on the page.
