Left Hand Publishers is proud to announce the upcoming release and sale of its newest anthology: Realities Perceived. Authors from around the world, including the U.S., Germany, Canada, and the United Kingdom, have contributed to this cross-genre anthology. The authors of Realities Perceived stretch the limits of what you may think you know to the limits of your imagination. This nearly-300 page collection of tales include work from new writers to award winning authors.
Perception is Reality…or is it?
Nothing’s more dangerous, or delightful, than invoking a cadre of talented authors to create short stories that defy our perceptions of reality. Do we create our own truth? Or does our view of it shape our world? Neither heroes nor heavens, victims nor villains, may grasp the true nature of our being.
From science fiction, to horror and the supernatural, to dramas about the fabric of our existence, this international fusion of artists will thrill you with an eclectic selection of tales that cross all genres.
Sit back and be prepared to have your perceptions of reality both challenged and distorted.
