Harvard Book Store is pleased to welcome author COLIN FLEMING as he reads from his two collections of short stories, Between Cloud and Horizon: A Relationship Casebook in Stories and Dark March: Stories for When the Rest of the World is Asleep.

Between Cloud and Horizon: A Relationship Casebook in Stories is an examination of what defines the relationships that define each of  us, and the myriad forms they take, in a story collection that doubles  as a casebook of how we interact with each other.

It is an exposé—in  narrative—of what binds—or breaks—the bonds between fathers and sons,  partners in crime, brothers, roommates, bandmates, co-workers, the past  and the present, man and  machine, the living and the dead, book and  reader.

And in Dark March: Stories for When the Rest of the World is Asleep, explore strange and wild tales featuring an island who becomes ambulatory and has adventures upon the land. A frigate captain with a singularly artistic method of punishment. Gulls who are players. Crabs who crack wise. A garage encrusted in blue crystals that harbors a secret. Rival haunted forests fighting for top billing. And a man who navigates that dream world known to anyone who has had a life pulled out from under them and a heart replaced with a question that has a beat of its own.
