Out of the Woods

The Fabulous & The Mundane

Free sample

On one side of the forest lay the lands of psychological realism. On the other rest the realms of fantasy and fabulism. And in the long shadows of the trees themselves… 


Three sons send their father to Valhalla in his old jalopy. A rusted robot waits on the stone wall by a child’s bus stop. An undertaker is one coin short at the river Styx. And in the bookending stories “Anything But Pure” and “Receding,” a soldier seeks to unbury stories once lost to a winter of war.


Fathers and the daughters they find, girls and the dogs they've loved, and a woman from Kansas with a cyclone in her heart—each discovers what happens when people go too far, love too hard, and take too much on their way Out of the Woods.


But will they learn from what they learn? Will they grow. And will you?


Out of the Woods is a short story collection by E. Christopher Clark. If you liked Carmen Maria Machado’s Her Body and Other Parties, Lincoln Michel’s Upright Beasts, or Luke Geddes’ I Am a Magical Teenage Princess, you’ll love this genre-bending blend of hypnotic fictions inspired by those three great works.
