"From the shadows that dwell in some of the most creative, and gifted minds around, emerges a collection of short stories that will skulk across the footplate of literature for many years to come. Exigencies is the cloak thrown over the world, to show us that in darkness we can still find beauty, and will forever serve as a keepsake to great writing."
--Craig Wallwork, author of The Sound of Loneliness
"These pages house some of the most exciting writers you've
never heard of--yet. They make the mundane terrifying, the poignant
macabre, the violent touching. The only thing you won't find is the
expected, because these stories will move the ground beneath your
feet. Brace yourself."
--Nik Korpon, author of Stay God
