Chrysalis chapbook by Gary Budgen out today

From an interspecies love affair on an alien world through the dead countries of a troubled imagination, the apocalypse as a product launch, and into the heart of the labyrinth. The chrysalis is about to open.

My chapbook Chrysalis is published today by Horrified Press.

Review of ‘Blinding a Few Dogs’

Nice review of my story ‘Blinding a Few Dogs’ from Sensorama, edited by Allen Ashley.

“This terrifically oft-kilter anthology of bizarre fiction is based on the five senses and our relationship to them. The opener is “Blinding A Few Dogs” by Gary Budgen, whose sense of choice is sight–specifically that of a man with macular degeneration that causes a tear shape to obstruct his vision. In its strangeness and unpredictability–it’s an eccentric love story in addition to a psychedelic mind-roaster–“Blinding a Few Dogs” adequately sets the tone for the remaining twenty stories.”
