The Impelled and Other Head Trips

A collection of stories by

Gary Fry's The Impelled and Other Head Trips has created a massive buzz within the horror genre. "Psychological horror, the unreliable narrator, the interdependence of the psychological and the supernatural: if Poe didn't invent them, he certainly brought them so up to date that his use of them remains exemplary today. Gary Fry is a master of all these elements and has developed them in his own strikingly personal way within the rare field of philosophical important book." - Ramsey Campbell, multiple World Fantasy, Bram Stoker & International Horror Guild Award winner "I am not in the habit of entertaining envy. It's a loathsome thing. But the work of Gary Fry makes me envious. Reading it has left me feeling inadequate to such a degree that punching him in the nose seems the only logical course of action. But I would never do such a thing. Instead I intend to recommend this book to all and sundry, in the hope that they might feel similarly envious, and we can band together and rain blows down upon the suspiciously and fiendishly talented skull of Mr. Fry . . . . Then we can feel secure in our mediocrity while Fry, limping, and a little worse for wear, basks in the respect and critical adoration that is due him." - Kealan Patrick Burke Bram Stoker Award winning author of The Turtle Boy. Gary Fry's debut collection of chilling short stories includes the previously unpublished novella, The Unmoored, and an introduction by Ramsey Campbell.
