Without further delay, here is the cover for J.S Breukelaar’s Collision, a dark and weirdly wonderful collection of speculative fiction stories. The book, which is slated for release in February 2019, includes 11 stories and a novella, some of Breukelaar’s darkest and finest, plus a wonderful introduction by award-winning author, Angela Slatter. Six of the stories, including the novella, are new works which we know you will enjoy. While you are waiting for this amazing collection, we highly recommend you try her novels, American Monster and Aletheia, the latter an Aurealis Award finalist!

 

Looking at Donald awkwardly pinning laundry to the line, I can’t see him having sex with anyone—my imagination won’t stretch that far. There is something missing about him, and it’s not just the way he habitually coughs into those gloved hands. His limbs don’t quite communicate with each other, making him rush at you one minute, back off slowly the next, looking into the distance as if searching for a lost opinion, or the grown children he seemed to have misplaced, or his own life, traded in now for someone else’s. You can’t help feeling sorry for Donald, Jules would say, more like a shadow than a man. -from “Raining Street” by JS Breukelaar

 

Collision: Stories

Collision: Stories

A collection of six of J.S. Breukelaar's darkest, finest stories plus six new works, including the uncanny new novella, "Ripples on a Blank Shore." Relish the gothic strangeness of “Union Falls,” the alien horror of “Rogues Bay 3013,” the heartbreaking dystopia of “Glow,” the weird mythos of “Ava Rune.” Plus an introduction by award-winning author, Angela Slatter. It's clear that this collection from the author of American Monster and the internationally acclaimed and Aurealis Award finalist, Aletheia, announces a new and powerful voice in fantastical fiction.
