Fossil Lake II


Smashwords / print on Amazon / ebook on Amazon

Welcome back to Fossil Lake, where the water is dark, and deep, and strange. Where wonderful mysteries and abhorrent monsters dwell together, lurking far beyond the shadowed reach of reality. Where sediment preserves in its layers a perfect record of that which will never be forgotten.

40 stories and poems, and a bonus cartoon, await in this second anthology of the aberrant.

Come for the swimming, the fishing, the view. And stay … forever.
