Luminous Body (Brooke Warra)
**WINNER - 2019 SHIRLEY JACKSON AWARDS - NOVELETTE**
Pregnancy, motherhood, and family through a cosmic body horror lens. It's hard to synopsize this story without giving too much away but please don't let that deter you. Emotionally charged and grounded while engaging with original and decidedly weird territory. Brooke makes her characters very human and eminently recognizable in a short space, setting the stage for a dark and surreal story that moves me (a happily childless middle-aged guy) to tears every time I read it.
*NEW* chapbook written by Brooke Warra, author of the stand-out story "Heirloom" in the Dim Shores anthology Looming Low Volume I. Featuring art by Brooke's daughter Zoe Liegh.
Limited to 130 copies. Chapbooks are hand-numbered and shipped in sturdy mailing sleeves. Orders include:
+ LUMINOUS BODY chapbook (52 pages)
+ 6” x 9" print of front cover art
+ Dim Shores sticker
