"Calls for Submission" is the debut collection of short stories by Selena Chambers
Selena Chambers' debut collection guides readers out of space and time and through genre and mythos to explore the microcosmic horrors of identity, existence, and will in the face of the world's adamant calls for submission. Victorian tourists take a virtual trip through their (and the Ottoman empire's) ideal Orient; a teenage girl learns about independence and battle of the bands, all while caring for her mesmerized, dead mother; a failed Beat poet goes over the edge while exploring the long-abandoned Government Lethal Chambers. Visceral, evocative, and with a distinct style that is both vintage and fresh, Calls for Submission introduces a glowing, new writer of the weird and strange.
Praised by Stoker award winner Paul Tremblay as "…a wonderful, irresistible mix of the historical and modern, the literary and fantastic. These stories burst with humor, genuine emotion, wonder, and the dread of those who see the end coming."
Calls for Submission by Selena Chambers is available through Small Press Distribution, Baker & Taylor, Bertrams, directly from the publisher's website, and in fine local bookstores worldwide.
