The glassy, burning floor of hell : stories / Brian Evenson.

Evenson, Brian, 1966- (author.). Evenson, Sarah, (cover artist.).


"'Here is how monstrous humans are.' A sentient, murderous prosthetic leg; shadowy creatures lurking behind a shimmering wall; brutal barrow men-of all the terrors that populate The Glassy, Burning Floor of Hell, perhaps the most alarming are the beings who decimated the habitable Earth: humans. In this new short story collection, Brian Evenson envisions a chilling future beyond the Anthropocene that forces excruciating decisions about survival and self-sacrifice in the face of toxic air and a natural world torn between revenge and regeneration. Combining psychological and ecological horror, each tale thrums with Evenson's award-winning literary craftsmanship, dark humor, and thrilling suspense"-- Provided by publisher.
