This is a whole new collection of disturbingly weird and curiously unsettling works, including the novella 'RANGLE' that was published as a limited edition chapbook from Dim Shores press to great acclaim (which sold out quickly).

Here's what some folks who've read have to say:
“[Bartlett] gets under the skin and digs deep. There is a mad genius at work here…I very much look forward to more from Mr. Bartlett. Highly recommended, there is something special at work here.”
~ JUSTIN STEELE, the Arkham Digest
“…as the year winds down and I look back over what I’ve read during the last twelve months, Matthew Bartlett’s fiction stands out as among my two or three real discoveries in that time.”
~ JOHN LANGAN, author
"This book is smart, weird, horror, with a touch of absurd humor, black as the pit, and full of teeth."
~ Yves Tourigny
"Such a hefty collection of stories and vignettes and truly odd odds-and-ends could easily become a drag in less skilled hands, but Bartlett delivers with confidence and a unique voice that weaves it all together naturally. Despite the unnaturalness of it all."
~ Hitch Enslor
"CREEPING WAVES takes that cubist, self-referential, interconnected CREEPTASTIC energy of the first book and seemingly mainlines it back into itself. And thus if GATEWAYS is a poem, then CREEPING WAVES is a Bosch painting."~ Brian Lillie
