Virtual Book Tour for 'Prism'

Short Fiction, Tragedy, Epic poetry - find it all with the virtual book tour for 'Prism'

It's October, the temperature is dropping, the leaves transform to all their hidden colors, and the days are getting shorter...sounds like a good time for a virtual book tour for my latest book, 'Prism'.  Follow the links below for tour sites.

"Prism presents the best of Roland Allnach’s newest stories together with his most acclaimed published short fiction. These selected stories fracture the reader’s perceptions among a dazzling array of genres and styles to illuminate the mysterious aspects of the human experience. Roland Allnach has been described as a ‘star on the rise’ (ForeWord Clarion), ‘a master storyteller with a powerful pen’ (Cynthia Brian, NY Times Bestselling author), with writing that is ‘smart, elegant, and addicting’ (San Francisco Review).
"Prism collects seventeen stories into one volume, following a trail of diverse genres and narrative forms. From literary fiction to speculative fiction, from humor to horror, from tragedy to mythical poetry, Prism represents a wide ranging journey united by contemplations on the human condition. Including Allnach’s award winning published fiction (“Conquest’s End” and “The City of Never”), a Pushcart Prize nominated story (“Creep”), Prism also consists of the previously unpublished pieces “Titalis” (a tragedy along the lines of Shakespeare and Greek theatre), “Of Typhon and Aerina” (a tribute to epic verse), “Tumbleweed” (a humorous ditty), and “Dissociated”, a surreal short to cap off the collection."
Praise for Prism
5 Stars – “Roland Allnach delivers a wonderful collection of stories in ‘Prism’…I would recommend this book to all.  It brings an air of mystery along with witty and wonderfully delivered tales.”  Lisa Jones, Readers’ Favorite
5 Stars – “Roland Allnach has a great talent for creating worlds, building an atmosphere and painting for the reader a believable setting for each story.  His power of description is considerable.  The whole collection of stories is interesting and intriguing and sometimes even moving.”  Ioana Marza, Readers’ Favorite
On and on this collection goes, with tales for literally everyone’s tastes. Each genre is spoken for – from the Technicolor world of sci-fi to humor to horror to fantasy, and beyond. Allnach has a voice that speaks so loud readers lose themselves in the stories, making this a whole lot of fun…A dazzling collection.” – Amy Lignor, Feathered Quill Reviews
