Cosmic folk horrors haunt a public access hunting show. A talking chainsaw warps the flesh of a man hellbent on revenge. A woman in recovery discovers a clown mask in her backyard and soon prefers it to her own face. The mysterious episodes of an avant-garde internet horror show arrest the imagination of an aspiring filmmaker. The tragic history behind a lost Euro-horror vampire film inspires a video game adaptation with its own sordid legacy. A county sheriff investigates disappearances linked to pirate radio broadcasts. Military veterans study Fortean phenomena on a remote Colorado ranch. A new strain of high-powered cannabis opens a gateway to a haunted city, threatening to upend more than just the local black market…
Paranoia and the dissolution of reality itself manifest in the short stories and flash fiction of Jonathan Raab, who wields conspiracy theories and supernatural elements to deliver tales of unique high strange horror.
It’s our world… not as we know it, but as we fear it truly is.
