Supernatural narratives represent an important component of our storytelling heritage. These stories-including fairy tales, urban legends, penny dreadfuls and modern pulps, among many others-leave a resonant echo throughout popular culture. In These Strange Worlds, Daniel Powell's first collection of dark short fiction, these influences collide in fourteen startling and entertaining stories. The lone survivor of a worldwide flu epidemic grows strangely attached to her parasitic partner...A malevolent London rental has a voracious appetite for rock stars, and it's building one hell of a band...A wealthy oil trader is offered a glimpse into another dimension, but is the cost more than he can possibly bear?From Satanic salesmen to zombie Ponzi schemes; from murdering murals to alien invasions, and other curious encounters along the way, These Strange Worlds takes readers on fourteen excursions into the realm of the uncanny. A mixture of new and previously published short stories, Powell's first collection embodies the spectrum of imaginative possibility that is the hallmark of compelling speculative fiction.
