Aberrations of Reality by Aaron J. French, intro. by Mark Valentine

Hi all, thanks for allowing me to post this here. I'm excited to announce the release of my first collection of esoteric/weird short fiction "Aberrations of Reality." Hardback, trade, and $2.99 Kindle. 21 tales of occult, metaphysical, weird and spiritual dark phantasy, with an introduction by Mark Valentine.

Do we always walk in two worlds? Our own we know, or think we know, and another we only glimpse? These twenty-two tales exploring occultism, religiosity, spirituality, existentialism, metaphysics, and the supernatural will attempt to answer that question. From the mind of Aaron J. French, Editor-in-Chief of Dark Discoveries magazine and noted Lovecraftian, comes Aberrations of Reality. Enter the New Age of weird fiction.

“Throughout this fiery modern grimoire of mystical horror, we’re conscious of the restless urgency of the writing, as if the author is working against time to conjure onto the pages a sequence of transformations that must be seized and fixed before they dissolve again. Indeed, the task for the acolyte of the literary Mysteries today is to convey strange possibilities in a modern tongue, one which responds to the ceaseless now with news of a different eternity. They must have a need at least to suggest that there are aberrations in the world we usually take for reality. And, as the title of this book suggests, Aaron J. French is one of those willing to respond to that task.”
—from the Introduction by weird fiction author and critic Mark Valentine

“Obsessively dark and razorous, these graphic takes on life, faith, illusion and self-delusion open paths where you need to watch your step.”—Tanith Lee, recipient of 2013 World Fantasy Life Achievement Award and bestselling author of the Tales From The Flat Earth fantasy series


“Aaron J. French leads his readers on dark and dangerous journeys, where the destination is never sure.”—Storm Constantine, author of the Wraeththu books

Re: Aberrations of Reality by Aaron J. French, intro. by Mark Valentine

Read Michael Collings's interesting new review of my metaphysical weird fiction collection "Aberrations of Reality," out now from Adam Millard and Crowded Quarantine Publications. Here's a short excerpt, click the link to keep reading: "What separates French’s stories from so many others is that they often bring characters to the brink of enlightenment—where most tales fade into a panoramic view of clouds and sky—and then cross that boundary with them, to experience…well, peace, or indifference, or freedom, or some other state distant from the euphoric exultation of Biblical redemption..." Collings Notes: Aaron J. French, ABERRATIONS OF REALITY--Perplexing yet Satisfying
