Maladaptive

By J. D. Edwin
Stories born of maladaptive daydreaming

About the Book

A daughter discovers the source of her own false memories in a world where thoughts take physical form in “The Drawer”. A driver for hire dissatisfied with the monotony of life finds that there’s still fantasy and magic to be had in the world when he encounters a passenger from another world in “The Ambassador”. A circus comes to town and brings with it intrigue, nostalgia, and a strange twist of the real and unreal in the “Shangaville Circus” tales. And in “Divine January”, the roles of predator and prey are not quite what they seem.

Take a journey through these fourteen evocative stories and discover what happens when the mind wanders, drifts, and creates, in “Maladaptive.”
