A Betrayal and Other Stories
Brian Biswas, author
Pen-and-ink illustrations complement each of these nineteen stories spanning the literary genres of magical realism, horror, and science fiction. In the title story, “A Betrayal,” a doctor travels into the countryside to help a young patient, only to deliver a diagnosis with which the girl’s family vehemently disagrees. The peculiar narrator of “Sedgefield’s Diary” recoils in horror when he discovers that the hourly diary he keeps has taken on a life of its own and now threatens his very existence. The bereaved wife in "The Lake of Flies" takes matters into her own hands when she learns the truth surrounding her husband's death. In "Barnegat Inn," a strange visitation becomes the background for a poignant recitation on the nature of time. The themes of loss and betrayal between rival siblings are explored in "The Crystal," a story pulsating with an ethereal, otherworldly quality. And in "A Journey Through the Wormhole," a decades-old feud between rival scientists threatens to upend a scientific revolution.
Reviews
Cafe Irreal

Whether the stories in this anthology remind me of the work of Kafka or Rod Serling or have their own unique style, I find Brian Biswas to be a writer of great descriptive skill and storytelling ability. His prose is lucid and straightforward, and it leaves vivid images in this reader’s mind that come back from time to time, long after I’ve finished reading, to remind me of these satisfyingly strange and well-written stories.

Kirkus Reviews

A debut collection mixes horror and sci-fi—short stories laden with bizarre creatures, life on other planets, and homicidal proclivities . . . Consistently eerie tales that readers aren’t likely to forget. 

Perihelion Science Fiction

Fans of Night Gallery, The Twilight Zone, vintage science fiction, magic realism, irrealism, and–well, fans of good stories and good literature–you need to get your hands on this beautiful volume.
