A nice first entry for a nice new anthology series of original works (not, as you might expect, all weird/horror, but with some science fiction and fantasy sprinkled in as well) from a publisher mostly known for their chapbooks.


Many Lives Theory (Christopher Burke)
Grief, haunted houses, existentialism, dystopian capitalism, this ran a very real risk of being overstuffed but it works. Echoes of Forlesen (a very good thing), Control, Ligotti, and Steve Rasnic Tem’s criminally obscure “At the Bur

A terrific introduction to many new-to-me authors and a delicious smorgasbord of horror, the weird, and dark f&sf. Highly recommended.
Donald Armfield
Dim Shores always delivers. A great roulette of writers showcasing the weird horrors of the summer bi-annual’s first volume. Looking forward to the Winter issue.
My favorites:

-Many Lives Theory - Christopher Burke
-Silver Bells And Cockle Shells - Richard Staving
-Used Clothes - Paul L. Bates
-Root And Branch - Jen Downes

At thirteen tales, and almost 300 pages, it is a packed anthology, beautifully presented. It is als

I really enjoyed reading all these different stories, and luckily most of them weren't as creepy as the cover suggests. The biggest problem with these short stories is that they leave you wanting so much more! The stories I loved the most were Walls of white, Observer/experiencer and Root and branch. ...more
