Fugue State by Brian Evenson
Trade paperback format. Illustrated by Zak Sally.
Nineteen chilling tales of the terror that lurks within.
Hallucinatory and darkly comic, these stories of paranoia, pursuit, sensory deprivation, amnesia, and retribution rattle the cages of the psyche. And through the illustrations of graphic novelist Zak Sally (Recidivist, Sammy The Mouse), this unsettling world is brought to life. From sadistic bosses with secret fears to a woman trapped in a mime’s imaginary box, and from a post-apocalyptic misidentified messiah to unwitting portraitists of the dead, Brian Evenson’s mind-bending fiction exposes the horror contained within our daily lives.
