Here there be gods and monsters - forged from flesh and stone and vengeance - emerging from the icy abyss of deep space, ascending from dark oceans, and prowling strange cities to enter worlds of chaos and wonder, where scientific rigor and human endeavour is tested to the limits. These are cosmic realms and watery domains where old offerings no longer appease the ancient Gods or the new and hungry idols. Deities and beasts. Life and death. Love and hate. Science and magic. And smiling monsters in human skin.
Premee Mohamed's debut collection of contemporary cosmic horror and dark fantasy heralds the arrival of a new and vibrant voice on the cutting edge of modern speculative fiction.

"Premee Mohamed is a top-notch fantasist with a dark streak of unease bubbling through her fiction."
- Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Author of Mexican Gothic
"A catalog of turmoils, each achingly human."
- John Wiswell, Nebula Award Winning Author of Open House on Haunted Hill
"Mesmeric, beautifully human, limned with a heart-broken tenderness even in its darkest moments."
- Cassandra Khaw, Author of The Salt Grows Heavy
"All of these stories linger once they are done. I tore through this book just like I tore through the Void trilogy, but some of the stories haunted me long after I had finished. I love that about Mohamed's writing - it makes me feel the ultimate horror of living in a world where many things remain unseen." - Reed Faster blog
" Premee Mohamed has staked her claim as one of the most versatile writers I’ve encountered in recent years. Her ability to evoke vividly a wide range of settings and write a wide range of characters whilst maintaining an integral authenticity and believability is remarkable." - Interzone Magazine
