The Black Maybe: Liminal Tales


Product Description
Product Details


"[Veres'] world is unique, bleak, terrifying and all his own. Whether it's urban fables of rock music, harvests that claim souls, Aickmanesque situations or an amazing take on cosmic horror, his vision is always stunning. These stories, his debut in English, will blow you away." - Mariana Enriquez, author of Things We Lost in the Fire and Our Share of Night"The ten macabre tales that make up Veres's English-language debut stake their scares on their wildly unpredictable plots. All Veres's stories begin in realistically grounded settings before veering unexpectedly into territory rife with unforeseeable and surreal menaces ... These tales wear their resistance to conventional horror tropes and formulas as a badge of honor. Readers are sure to be impressed." - Publishers Weekly "Every decade or so, a writer comes along who reconfigures the way we think about the Weird. First Thomas Ligotti, then Laird Barron, and now Attila Veres. An astonishing collection, really unlike anything out there, which suggests a new way forward." - Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World"The Black Maybe by Attila Veres, continued to surprise me, story by story, front to rear cover ... I was reminded of reading Barker's Books of Blood for the first time ... 'Walks Among You' is one of the best Lovecraftian stories I have encountered." - Adam Nevill, author of The Ritual"These stories dwell in the in-between places of life and death, that place where nightmares wait to be harvested. These are your nightmares, or they soon will be, so settle in for an excursion to a horrific mental, emotional, and spiritual landscape like no other. A brilliant work." - Elizabeth Engstrom, author of When Darkness Loves Us and Black Ambrosia"A stunning parade of terrors surreal and horrors sublime. The uncanny stories in The Black Maybe are as originally chilling and imaginatively dangerous as anything you'll read this decade, if not your lifetime, and Attila Veres deserves the worldwide acclaim this inventive work of horror will surely bring him. His approach is genuinely fresh. No maybes about it: this book is pitch black and totally engrossing." - Michael Arnzen, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Proverbs for Monsters"Attila Veres is fiendishly talented. Certain images in The Black Maybe caused me to glance at the darkened corners of my office as I read into the wee hours." - Laird Barron, author of Swift to Chase"Original, brilliant, distinctive. These masterful stories by Attila Veres are a breath of fresh air from out of the darkness." - Michael Cisco, award-winning author of The Divinity Student"Prepare for visions as unsettling as any you'll read this year." - Spectrum Magazine"The Black Maybe, by Attila Veres, is a refreshing blast of cold cellar air. The horror is insidious and surreal, slowly chewing away what you think is real until you find yourself surrounded by a nightmare. I love this book!" - Nathan Ballingrud, author of Wounds and North American Lake Monsters
