Fearful Symmetries is a very lengthy short story collection from the always-entertaining (and often controversial) Monteleone. Featuring dozens of short stories and very detailed Story Notes, this collection is a wonderful read and is sure to garner some year-end awards!
The most irreverent, entertaining, and longest-running column in the history of horror and dark fantasy, dealing with all things publishing—Monteleone has written about breaking in, breaking out, being successful, and being a failure. He tells it like it is in the book biz, television, film, and popular culture. If you want the inside scoop on the genres you love, this is the book for you!
Inspired by prophecies contained in the Bible and the writings of Nostradamus, Jesuit-educated Monteleone delives a forceful novel of the politics of power and the power of belief. A young priest suddenly develops frightening, miraculous powers, leading to an apocalyptic battle between good and evil.
