NOX PAREIDOLIA

Amid the flurry of end-of-year releases and end-of-decade lists, you may have missed this big, beautiful anthology, NOX PAREIDOLIA. Edited by Robert S. Wilson and magnificently illustrated by Luke Spooner, the book contains thirty-one haunting stories exploring the dark edges of pareidolia, “the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern…the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness.” (Merriam-Webster)

This is a stunning anthology, gorgeous in both appearance and content. I’m proud to be included among these talented writers of strange fiction. NOX PAREIDOLIA is an excellent reading choice right now, during the post-holiday doldrums, and it could use some ratings and reviews—blog posts, social media sharing, Goodreads, Amazon… Show the love, to help other weird fiction lovers find this book.

Thanks and happy reading in 2020!
