Subterranean Press plans to release Stephen Gallagher’s Plots And Misadventures this month. In this second collection of short fiction, award-winning author and screenwriter Stephen Gallagher delivers his unique take on the weird, the wonderful and the downright strange. These are tales in which the world is very much as we know it, but charged with a sense of the wonders that lie in wait just beneath the surface of our everyday reality.
Publishers Weekly writes: “Veteran British horror writer Gallagher (The Kingdom of Bones) shows off his versatility in this collection of 11 stories and a review of Joseph Payne Brennan’s Nine Horrors and a Dream. Among the best are ‘The Back of His Hand,’ a shocking description of the unexpected dangers involved in tattoo removal; ‘Doctor Hood,’ a touching ghost story concerning a world-famous physicist, his daughter and the recently deceased loved one haunting their family home; and ‘My Repeater,’ a grim science fiction story about the fruitlessness of using time travel to correct one’s past errors. Capable of being either subtle or blunt depending upon the needs of his plot, Gallagher has assembled a fine and varied collection of weird fiction that should find many admirers.”
