Praise for the Macrocosm Volume I

"Captivating characters and a cleverly designed, fantastical plot. A highly recommended set of shorts." – The Wishing Shelf Book Awards

"Into the Macrocosm is a short-story collection of some of the best dark fantasy, horror, and speculative fiction stories I've ever read . . . Konn Lavery is a brilliant writer and I give him credit for weaving complete stories in the short story format. If you're a fan of Poe, The Twilight Zone, or Lovecraft, you need to read Into the Macrocosm. Highly recommend!" – N.N. Light’s Book Heaven

“Beyond the Marcocosm” is an innovative and curious short story collection. It’s a “decide your fate” and “find the clues” layout where the reader chooses the next move (and, subsequently, the next story). It harkens back to my childhood when I read these types of books; I will admit, I cheated and went back a few times, because damnit, I wanted to read all the stories!
