Description
Fiction. Selena Chambers' debut collection guides readers out of space and time and through genre and mythos to explore the microcosmic horrors of identity, existence, and will in the face of the world's adamant calls for submission. Victorian tourists take a virtual trip through their (and the Ottoman empire's) ideal Orient; a teenage girl learns about independence and battle of the bands, all while caring for her mesmerized, dead mother; a failed Beat poet goes over the edge while exploring the long-abandoned Government Lethal Chambers. Visceral, evocative, and with a distinct style that is both vintage and fresh, CALLS FOR SUBMISSION introduces a glowing, new writer of the weird and strange.
