John Doyle Remains

John Doyle Remains was published on 2 May in Abyss: stories of depth, time and infinity, the latest anthology from the always interesting Orchid’s Lantern.

Its opening line – “I had a girlfriend who ate my scabs.” – has caused some powerful reactions.

Orchid’s Lantern publish great work and although I haven’t read all of this anthology yet, I’m sure it’s no exception.

Here’s the blurb for Abyss: “Are we more than the sum of our memories? Does time always pass the same or can it be influenced by thought? What happens to consciousness after death? An exciting new anthology of horror, science fiction and experimental prose exploring these questions and many more.”
