Fragments of Perception and Other Stories by C.R. Dudley


Containing 36 mind-bending stories of 1200 words and less, Fragments of Perception will take you on a roller coaster ride through the depths of the psyche. In these imagined versions of our world, future technology meets metaphysics, quantum theory blurs with spirituality, and insanity becomes a friend.

Here you will see through the eyes of personified thoughtforms, people who worship black holes, and individuals exploring planes of shared consciousness. You will encounter guardian angels who feel misunderstood, meditating robots, and mythical species sending advice to humanity in unconventional ways.

Originally published on the Orchid’s Lantern blog, some stories have been revised and expanded for this collection; others are brand new and exclusive. All are written in the unique brand of surrealism for which C.R. Dudley is fast becoming known.

Whatever your perspective, this is a book that will stay with you long after you turn the final page.
