Synopsis

An intimate, unsettling collection from award-winning author Kirstyn McDermott.

A creepy wooden dog that refuses to play dead.
A gifted crisis counsellor and the mysterious, melancholy girl she cannot seem to reach.
A once-successful fantasy author whose life has become a horror story - now with added unicorns.
An isolated woman whose obsession with sex dolls takes a harrowing, unexpected turn.

Four stories that will haunt you long after their final pages are turned.

'Kirstyn McDermott's prose is darkly magical, insidious and insistent. Once her words get under your skin, they are there to stay.' - Angela Slatter, British Fantasy Award-winning author of Sourdough and Other Stories

'The supernatural lurks in the shadows of Kirstyn McDermott's first collection, an ambiguous or mundane presence that keeps these four quasi-horror stories feeling palpably real ... McDermott's poignant stories defy genre labelling, being primarily about damaged people seeking solace, escape, or meaning. The otherworldly merely gives them a chance to find it, and makes these unflinching but touching stories even more evocative and irresistible.' - Aurealis, Issue 64
