New Journalism Project Publishing is glad to announce its first science fiction book. Cleveland Maxwell’s Tales of the Alpha State is now available on Lulu.com and Amazon.
“[T]he first collection of his short stories and wild ramblings to have ever been published….for the large part a strange compilation of absurdity, attempts with words to tease the psyche of his readers, just as the Muse had teased him with the ideas. Some of the more serious stories are set in a field of subterranean humor which manifest themselves in strange, dreamlike forms….Maxwell himself would be the first to admit that the dream world, or ‘alpha-state,’ as he called it, was a guiding locus of his storytelling inspirations; hence the title to this compilation.
But there is also a dark edge to some of the tales that border on the horrific.”
