A FIERCE AND FERTILE TOMORROW [hardcover collection] by Darren Speegle
"Speegle's voice and worldview are bizarre and mesmerizing, humane and compelling, and the stories contained in this collection will fry your mind. Bleeding between horror, dark fantasy, science fiction, as well as all things heartbreaking and nerve-wracking, Speegle's stories could best be described—if it's possible to describe them at all, and I'm not sure they should be—as 'the savage cerebral' something you've not encountered much before . . . — Gary A. Braunbeck
"Elegant, sometimes intense and horrific but always finely crafted and devious in the best way, Darren Speegle’s stories will delight and entertain fans of dark fantasy." – Jeff Vandermeer
"Fiendish ingenuity." – Asimov’s Science Fiction
Darren is the author of eleven books, including A FIERCE AND FERTILE TOMORROW, the most recent of his eight short story collections. A previous collection A HAUNTING IN GERMANY was published by PS in 2016
