Simulacrum and Other Possible Realities by Jason V. Brock
Trade paperback – Hippocampus Press – May 2013 – 250 pages
A collection of short fiction and poetry with a forward by William F. Nolan and an introduction by James Robert Smith. Among these sixteen stories are such works as “P.O.V.,” a multilayered narrative about a grisly murder; “The History of a Letter,” a riff on the iconic figure of H. P. Lovecraft; “Milton’s Children,” an expansive novella that hints of unthinkable horrors in the Antarctic; and “Simulacrum,” a science fiction novella that evokes the shade of Philip K. Dick. Also included are thirteen of Brock’s evocative poems.
