A collection of twilight zone shorts exploring the fantasy-rich past, frightful present, and uncanny future.
Enter an obscure universe known through the lives of 22 souls as the Nameless One and their ghoulish companion attempt to unlock the mysterious past of how they died. Yet, danger lurks even in the post-death realm, the Midway, and it is not keen on mortal visitors.
A talking goat head, celestial beings, self-imposed existential dread, devils and demons are a small selection of what awaits in the Macrocosm.
Award-winning author Konn Lavery's short story collection explores his expanding Macrocosm, sharing the same universe as his previous works such as the horror novels Cultivate and Rave, thriller YEGman, and the dark fantasy series Mental Damnation. These interconnected tales bring everything under one, strange, unsettling, cosmos.
