Andrew Hook sees the world through a different lens. He takes often mundane things and coaxes the reader to find strangeness, beauty, and horror in their form; he colours the world in surreal shades and leads the reader down discomforting paths where nothing is quite as it should be.
“Andrew Hook is an undisputed superstar of strange fiction” – Neil Williamson, author of The Moon King
“A rich slab of Andrew Hook’s trademark understated darkness: measured, careful, but ruthless in its own quiet way.” – Chris Beckett, Arthur C. Clarke and Edge Hill Prize-winning author.
“His stories range from the darkly apocalyptic to the hopefully visionary, some brilliant and none less than satisfactory." – The Harrow
“Refreshingly original, uncompromisingly provocative, and daringly intelligent” – The Future Fire
Frequencies of Existence features twenty-four of the author’s finest stories, including four that are original to this collection.
In “Interference” we meet Matt, who sees the world in reverse and carries a hand mirror with him at all times in order to fit in, while “The Caged Sea” delivers a cross-cultural love story that culminates in a trip to Japan’s Aokigahara forest, famed as a suicide spot, where déjà vu and jamais vu collide. In “A Knot Of Toads” we visit the picturesque Lake District, where a most particular serial killer quietly plies their trade, and “The Abduction Of Europe” takes us on a pilgrimage, following in the footsteps of Salvador Dali.
