This is book Letter L of 26 and is SIGNED by Harry Shannon on the limitation page and by Yossi Sasson (artwork).

Introduction by Rick Hautala.  In this collection, his first in nearly ten years, award winning author Harry Shannon gives us twenty three short stories, some published here for the first time.

SYNOPSIS:  “Everyone carries a shadow,” wrote analyst Carl Jung, “and the less it is embodied in the individual’s conscious life, the blacker and denser it is.”

Few of us see the shadow with any clarity. Turn around for a peek, it slips away. Our violent, sexually tinged fantasies are indulged regularly in darkened theatres, savoured in eerie prose, celebrated in song, sometimes reluctantly encountered within the depths of a reoccurring nightmare. When we do look hard at one, long enough to recognize it as our own, the experience can challenge reality. We can then choose to become wiser as a result – or spin totally out of control . . . How many fragments of a shattered mirror could you examine and still survive?
