Through the Storm

by

Rosalie Parker

 

Ghosts, shamans, aliens, angels and the weirdness of life all make their appearance in this new collection of Rosalie Parker’s strange tales. Her stories depict subtly shifting realities, and celebrate the fluidity of the barrier between the uncanny and the everyday. These twenty-five stories vary from contes to longer pieces, and explore the traditions of the weird tale in fresh and original ways.

 

 

Reviews:

 

". . . she is always at her best when she's letting her imagination fly off in the most unexpected directions at which point her work resonates most loudly and shimmers with uncanny life." Wyrd Britain

 

"Social commentary is one of the things Parker does very well. She is unafraid to look the present in the face and shine a light on the sections of society that have been the worst hit by the UK’s raging, decade-long war on poor people.. . . Parker’s fiction acts as a kind of literary sorbet, refreshing and full of zing without weighing down the stomach, although the reader should resist the temptation to bolt too much at once, as many of these stories are best when savoured slowly."

Gingernuts of Horror

 

"...a collection of short stories that embrace the form with a sense of poetry, urgency, variety and intensity to evoke a carousel of emotions of in the reader." Rick Kleffel, Narrative Species

 

"A substantial aspect of this collection is the calibre of the prose. This speculative fiction is of high literary merit, with focus on tone and voice that eschews shlock tropes. Don’t look here for celebrations of gore and violence; the horror is insidious in cerebral language. A feast for lovers of high-brow macabre." Aurealis #142
