OBSOLESCENCE A Dark Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Anthology - Cover Art

OBSOLESCENCE is a new collection of short stories about horrifying or fantastical interactions with technology.

All leaps in technology are scary. Mysterious. Misunderstood. Until they slowly creep into our daily lives and become impossible to get rid of. Like an evolving parasite.

The broken cell phone that can only text with your dead husband. The backyard tire swing that becomes a portal to another world. The Radio Shack Walkie-Talkies that pick up an alien GPS…

In OBSOLESCENCE, technology gets repurposed, subverted, and redefined.
