Coming Soon: GIFTS FOR THE ONE WHO COMES AFTER by Helen Marshall

Here’s the cover and synopsis for Helen Marshall’s upcoming collection Gifts for the One Who Comes After. (Cover by Erik Mohr.)

Here’s the synopsis:

Ghost thumbs. Microscopic dogs. One very sad can of tomato soup. Helen Marshall’s second collection offers a series of twisted surrealities that explore the legacies we pass on to our children. A son seeks to reconnect with his father through a telescope that sees into the past. A young girl discovers what lies on the other side of her mother’s bellybutton. Death’s wife prepares for a very special funeral. In Gifts for the One Who Comes After, Marshall delivers eighteen tales of love and loss that cement her as a powerful voice in dark fantasy and the New Weird. Dazzling, disturbing, and deeply moving.

    I’m actually interested in reading these stories.

    But the dead-kitten-with-fish-scales-in-a-velvet-box cover? I’m not touching that book. Yuck. Disturbing and disgusting.
