A homeless man trapped in a hell of his own making finds a reason to hope in "Redemption Song." A camping trip turns into a race for survival after the discovery of a bizarre artifact in "The Taking of Michael McConnolly." A man begins to question his sanity as patrons at a cafe begin to vanish one by one in "Charlie's Lunch." Over two dozen exceptional tales of terror.
"An impressive, often unnerving, and always gutsy collection, Beneath the Surface of Things easily marks Kevin Wallis as a writer to Beware of with such stories as Redemption Song and No Monsters Came That Night. Every story showcases Wallis' determination to break through the so-called boundaries of dark fiction and explore disturbing and sometimes even eye-opening new worlds, some without, but most within. You owe it to yourself to look Beneath the Surface of Things."
