Ghosts. Random lake monsters and cannibals. That gnarled, bloody hand that grabs your ankles on the stairs. These are the things Nicole M. Wolverton fears and writes about.
“The Trajectory of Dreams is unsettling, beautifully written, and truly original. In Lela White, Nicole Wolverton has created one of the most haunting characters in contemporary fiction. This is a remarkable debut.” –Emily St. John Mandel, author of STATION ELEVEN
"Hung like jaunty lanterns across her porch, a row of eight young girls swung. Their toes brushed across the writhing floor. Their milky, dead eyes stared right at Melanie. Wires passed through them, ear-to-ear, holding them aloft. A silver pail sat in front of each girl, filled to the brim with more maggots." –Merry Evilmas anthology, November 2021
