Tales From The Monoverse by Last Waltz Publishing

Tales From The Monoverse is a Noir Anthology of 16 stories edited by Jack Wells and Daemon Manx. There are several authors included that I personally have never read before that just had fantastic stories. This was my first foray into reading stories told in monochrome settings and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Some of my favorites are as follows.

“Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You, Baby” by Kelly Mintzer is a story about a morgue worker who has a pet that brings home some peculiar items.

“Eclipse” by Thomas West is a harrowing tale of an astronaut making a trip around the moon.

“The Marbled Scarab” by Daemon Manx flashes us back to ancient Egypt and the wondrous things created by the craftsmen of the time.

“Lady in Red” by Heather Miller is a story about two women who go exploring an abandoned theater and one of them gets more than they bargained for.

“Azure” by Makency Hudson is a story of a collector who will do just about anything to collect precious items of color. He goes in search of the most rare color out there.

“Tunnel Rat” by Matt Scott is a story about a PI who gets hired to find a missing girl. He searches through the seedy underground of his town while the clock is ticking.

“We’ll Meet Again” by Jack Wells is the story of a resistance fighter during WWII who is determined to complete her mission.

All of the stories were great and involved multiple subjects in Noir. All of the authors did a fantastic job with setting their stories in the grey, monochrome world and throwing just pieces of color in that glowed like shining beacons in a colorless world. I felt transported to the golden era of film as I read these stories.

Tales From The Monoverse releases on March 2nd! So go get your copy on release date!!
