AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A writer is disturbed from his daily grind by blood dripping from the ceiling, which gets steadily worse. Soon, the blood becomes his own personal metaphor in a battle of denial.

'When a compulsive gambler is forced to seek out a loan shark rooted in myth, he discovers the dark savior teaches a lot more to his pupils than mere deliverance from debt.

'Trapped within a room of sinister dolls, an average man is forced to confront his very worst fears ... and quickly learns that sometimes staring into the abyss does not grant you a reprieve from them.

'Interweaving darkness into socially relevant spiritual and philosophical themes, GHOSTS IN A DESERT WORLD is the debut collection from Australian author Matthew Tait.'
