Fiction. Short Stories. MOSS COVERED CLAWS, the debut short story collection from fantasy author Jonah Barrett, is filled with tales of anxiety-feeding demons, anti-fascists that travel dimensions, and the vengeful spirits of dead seabirds. Barrett mashes dreams and reality together in these ten macabre tales of speculative fiction. They offer a fresh, cheeky voice to Queer fiction and fantasy genres, delivered in this multiverse of forgotten dreams and broken promises. For the faint of heart, don't worry, Barrett's stories—though dark and heady—will always leave you with a sense of hope.
