Uncertainties V edited by Brian J. Showers

Hardcover – Swan River Press – Apr 2021 – 208 pages

Uncertainties is an anthology series — featuring authors from the island of Ireland, Canada, America, and the United Kingdom — each exploring the concept of increasingly fragmented senses of reality. These types of short stories were termed “strange tales” by Robert Aickman, called “tales of the unexpected” by Roald Dahl, and known to Shakespeare’s ill-fated Prince Mamillius as “winter’s tales”. But these are no mere ghost stories. These tales of the uncanny grapple with existential epiphanies of the modern day, when otherwise familiar landscapes become sinister and something decidedly less than certain . . .
