Losing the Light by Brian Cartwright
Quique Martinez is a broken down photographer in search of the last great shoot. From the islands of Micronesia to the casbahs and desert of the Middle East, Quique will go anywhere to find it. What he doesn’t expect is the surreal adventure waiting to test him both mentally and physically. To him, the only possible outcomes are complete and total failure or the culmination of a life’s passion.

D. Harlan Wilson returns with another ferociously mindbending collection of short fiction. Masked in absurdity, these stories reveal the horrifying and hilarious faces of everyday life. Wilson tells of egg raids, hog rippers, monk spitters, fathers who take their children to pet stores to buy them whales, sociopaths who threaten to clothesline eternity, and the simple act of the story itself becoming a means of repetitive, endless torture. Put on your goat head, hop in your hovercraft, and take a ride with a juggernaut of modern imaginative fiction.
PRAISE FOR D. HARLAN WILSON
“Wilson has been duly anointed as speculative fiction’s most unpredictable stylist.” – Booklist
“D. Harlan Wilson doesn’t just gaze into the abyss. He dives headlong into it, pulling us with him and laughing maniacally all the way down.” –Tim Waggoner, author of Nekropolis
“Funny, experimental, troubling, this brilliant collection of short stories proves conclusively that D. Harlan Wilson is a maverick author of genius . . . For years I have grumbled that there is too little quality fiction of this type. Wilson has persuaded me to shut my goddamn mouth.” –Rhys Hughes, author The Smell of Telescopes and A New Universal History of Infamy
