Compromising the Truth by Bryn Fortey
Back in 2014 The Alchemy Press published Bryn’s first collection, Merry-Go-Round and Other Words. Now, four years on, we have his second book — full of equally stunning stories and poems.
In Compromising the Truth we have eighteen stories plus two dozen poems of the weird and wonderful: a touch of science fiction, a tidbit of horror, a sprinkling of the strange.
From Adrian Cole’s introduction:
“His stories reflect a clear understanding of the human condition and he imbues his characters with knowing insights. The tales vary from stark, unnerving urban horror, to blackly humorous, almost preposterous fantasy, although even these hugely entertaining yarns are seated in reality. “
