What visions may come, when peering into the darkness through the shattered lens of a broken world:
—the sins of the father being vested on the son in "The Chain-Lynched Man."
—the nature of angels, the price of their existence in “The Unborn.”
—the horrors of drug addiction, in "Bone House."
—Lovecratian cosmic dread, with a distinctly un-Lovecraftian heroine, in “Out of the Shadows.”
—the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet manifesting herself in New York City in "Finding the Lost Children."
—the Apocalypse, lurking on the periphery in 9/11 tales “Signs of Death" and "Things I Wish I Had Not Seen,” stepping out for a view from other perspectives in “Dead Ground” and “The Changeover.”
—the ending and breaking of gender and sexuality in "Clown Fish."
—the secret hard edges of "Those Who Cast Shadows."
—the path that should not have been taken in “On the Road.”
Visions Through A Shattered Lens presents the twenty stories, 9 original to the collection, plus two new additions to this Crossroad Press edition, all searching for meaning in the splintered realities of our existence in shadows and corners, among old gods and goddesses reborn in a modern world, in twisted faith, apocalypse, loss and transformation.
Other stories included in this collection are: "Visions Through a Shattered Lens", "Bui Doi", "Children in the Moonless Night", "Born from the Womb of Forever", "Like Tears, Cast in the Steps of Her Mother", "The Mutilation Missionary", and "Bones of the Maker".
