Silent Bombs Falling On Green Grass


Silent Bombs Falling On Green Grass is an intriguing collection of stories. It spans a wide selection of genres, from comedy to the surreal, to horror and drama. Written in a way that plays with structure and expectations it presents an unpredictable world where the reader is never quite sure how the story will unfold.

Welcome to Mewlish Lull, the sort of town you pass through on your way to somewhere else without even noticing it exists. This debut collection of short fiction presents a bizarre portrait of a world just to the left of reality. In twelve stories and with a cast of oddball characters, through the most absurd of comedies, the darkest of nightmares and those quiet moments of madness that live within us all, Silent Bombs Falling on Green Grass takes us to a strange town where anything could happen… If only you could fit in. But sometimes being an outsider is the only way to be…
