The Mirror and Other Stories

ByJack McLarnon

This collection contains the novella 'The Mirror' and seven short stories that cover a wide range of genres and ideas. 'The Mirror' presents asynchronous snapshots of a woman's life as her story and character gradually unfurl. "Sidetown, USA" uncovers a version of the future with underlying menace. "Causeway" explores risk and reward in a shattered body. "Toggling" connects distinct persons and the aftermath of their interlinked experiences. In "Found," a happy reunion brings forth deeper memories. "26 Minutes of Darkness" consists entirely of dialogue, as a small group tries to figure out what is going on in the dark space they are trapped in. "Any Given Day" explores how a man who lives according to scheduled order reacts to a massive change in the world. Finally, "A Remnant of Hope" looks at an ethical debate between two angels and their struggle to understand why they should work for the hope of humanity.
