Awhile back, David Barnett of Necro Publications gave fellow scribe Gerard Houarner and me each half a book to play with, and a kind of weird urban theme gelled naturally.
Gerard split his share between two stories with the evocative titles “Burning Bright in the Invisible Night” and “The Fear Puppet.” My chunk is an epic novella called In the Negative Spaces, which came together by throwing the oddest combination of elements into a bowl and going at them with an immersion blender: domestic violence survival, alternative evolution, Manhattan real estate rapacity, Russian mob tattoos, smart-ass dream journaling…
And somewhere in there, caramel-and-sea-salt brownies are served. Come for the brownies, stay for the blizzard and interdimensional chaos.
