About the Book

Oddives is a follow-up to Jace Epple's first book The Macabre Box.
This new work offers a unique story collection of horror and fantasy. If you have a taste for the bizarre, these tales will take you on an imaginative thrill ride and leave you restless for more.

Themes of the supernatural permeate many of the narratives, and each speaks with a voice that is entertaining as well as thought provoking. There are few plots that unfold in the present. Instead, Jace has chosen benchmarks of history (or futuristic eras of his creation) to draw the reader far away from the norms of everyday life.

Oddives is a book filled with rich descriptions, sudden turns, and unforgettable characters. A single reading is not enough to fully appreciate all that it has to offer. It is a polished form of abstract art to be enjoyed for years to come.
