From Alistair Rennie, author of BleakWarrior and overseer of Ruptured World, comes a collection like no other...

Fantastical Meta-Warriors who defy the rules of linear existence; telepathic shape-shifting lifeforms from another planet; interdimensional time-travelling assassins; and eldritch gods as you’ve never seen them before. Experience all this and more in a masterful new collection of dark fiction that can only be described as HARDWEIRD.

Featuring BleakWarrior Enters the Pith of Shadows—the sequel novella to the acclaimed novel—and other weird tales of cosmic disorder, HARDWEIRD will take you to new heights of horror, wonder, weirdness, and beyond.
