Neuankündigung für nächstes Jahr. Und jeder neue Brian Evenson gehört herbeizelebriert. Ganz ehrlich, diesen Schriftsteller sollte man echt nicht verpassen, seine Kurzgeschichten sind für mich in diesem Segment (Literary Horror, Weird Fiction) so ungefähr das Beste, was aktuell auf den Markt kommt.

“HERE IS HOW MONSTROUS HUMANS ARE.”
A sentient, murderous prosthetic leg; shadowy creatures lurking behind a shimmering wall; brutal barrow men—of all the terrors that populate The Glassy, Burning Floor of Hell, perhaps the most alarming are the beings who decimated the habitable Earth: humans. In this new short story collection, Brian Evenson envisions a chilling future beyond the Anthropocene that forces excruciating decisions about survival and self-sacrifice in the face of toxic air and a natural world torn between revenge and regeneration. Combining psychological and ecological horror, each tale thrums with Evenson’s award-winning literary craftsmanship, dark humor, and thrilling suspense.
