UMBRA SAPIENS & Other Lurking Life-Forms
by Mark McLaughlin
Available as a paperback or FREE on Kindle Unlimited.
The universe is filled with a complex array of surreal life-forms that can be found in unlikely settings. In this story collection, Mark McLaughlin serves as your guide to the most obscure and in some cases, reclusive creatures that Creation has to offer.
In “Lurkers From The Dreamlands,” you will learn how bizarre hybrid creatures, from folklore as well as urban legends, were created when humans began to interact with the denizens of the Dreamlands.
“Let Me Tell You About Aliens” reveals how and why life-forms from other planets and even solar systems visit the Earth whenever they please. “Delilah’s Siblings” presents the secrets of an unusually large rural family with a disturbing lifestyle.
In “Speaking Parts: Frankenstein’s Monster Restitched As A Crazy Quilt Of Flash Fictions,” you will find out more about the components of history’s most notorious assembled monster. None of the parts were donated to the doctor who created the creature. The innovative physician collected the pieces one by one, and each of them has a story to share. “Phantasmapedia: An Alphabestiary of Little-Known Demons, Entities, Mutants, and Pseudo-Biological Aberrations” provides an overview of many weird beings that live hidden in strange locations, or unseen in our midst.
