The Endless Fall di Jeffrey Thomas

img_1743The Endless Fall and Other Weird Fictions è la nuova raccolta di racconti di Jeffrey Thomas, creatore dell’acclamata ambientazione Punktown.

La raccolta, pubblicata dalla Lovecraft eZine Press e disponibile in versione sia cartacea che digitale anche per il pubblico italiano, comprende quattordici racconti, un’occasione ottima per conoscere il mirabolante mondo narrativo di Jeffrey Thomas.

Di Jeffrey Thomas Hypnos ha pubblicato il racconto “Nel Limbo” all’interno dell’antologia Nuovi Incubi.

(From the volume’s back cover)

“Respected as one of today’s leading figures of weird fiction for his striking imagination, versatility, and deeply emotional stories, Jeffrey Thomas here offers up fourteen searing tales. Included are the haunting and surreal “Ghosts in Amber,” in which a man is compelled to visit a mysterious derelict factory that harbors chilling secrets; “Jar of Mist,” which focuses on a father who, in seeking to understand his daughter’s suicide, encounters a dream-like other realm; “Those Above,” which imagines an alternate Victorian society controlled by vast monstrous entities from beyond; and the title novelette “The Endless Fall,” which concerns an astronaut who crash-lands on an unknown forested world where time seems to work in an alien way, and where he finds he is unfortunately not alone.”
