About the book
These stories do not pretend to be nice. They are raw, stark and haunting.
They are breaths in the mist and screams in the dusk. These stories are luscious fruits from tree of hope. They are roots of reality. These stories are black and white. They are painful blisters and ruptures of joy. These stories pit the forces of light and dark against each other. Will knight of light win against agents of utopia ?
Here’s to yarn of dusk and here’s to glory of dawn. If you love these short stories, you will love them. If you hate these short stories, you will hate them.
These stories are about our species. These are creations of the land.
