Kate Folk
"Out There: Stories": With a focus on the weird and eerie forces that lurk beneath the surface of ordinary experience, Kate Folk's debut collection is perfectly pitched to the madness of our current moment. Each story beats with its own fierce heart, and together they herald an exciting new arrival in the tradition of speculative literary fiction.
