Fables in Words and Pictures
A collection of stories by Gary A Braunbeck and Alan M Clark
Writing by Gary A. Braunbeck and Alan M. Clark. Art by Clark. Contains short stories and novellas, with approximately 28 pieces of art (5 color plates). Escaping Purgatory is about personal hells. We all create them. We find ways to convince ourselves that we are comfortable with the really cruel ones, at least for a while. It's understandable. After all change is frightening. But inevitably there comes a time when we are willing to do anything to end the torment. In this book you'll meet some of those extremes and perhaps you'll recognize yourself.
"Escaping Purgatory is a real Fourth of July firecracker of a book. I hope you treat it with all the reverence it deserves. Stuff of this quality is far too thin on the ground for any of us to be complacent." - Peter Crowther
