In death, the soul leaves the body but where does it go? Travel through time and space to an eerie universe known as the Macrocosm, where souls regain their memories of not only how they died but what happens next. The journey is challenging and wrought with peril. Anyone can observe what happens but they better tread softly or else they might never escape those lurking behind them...
Into the Macrocosm is a short-story collection of some of the best dark fantasy, horror, and speculative fiction stories I've ever read. As a reader of the great masters of the genre, I found each story activated my imagination with the same morbid fascination as one stares at a gruesome accident. Each story is woven with a precise, well-executed plot, tight characters, just the right amount of suspense and creep factor. The world-building is exceptional, and each story transported me inside the world Konn Lavery has created. Some were downright scary while others had the mystique of horror. The Nameless One is the perfect main character as it's easy to insert oneself into him to observe all that is going on. Konn Lavery is a brilliant writer and I give him credit for weaving complete stories in the short story format. If you're a fan of this genre's master storytellers, you need to read Into the Macrocosm. Highly recommend!
