Of One Pure Will




“I have become a huge fan of Farah Rose Smith. This collection of haunting, lyrical, visceral stories is a maximalist writer’s dream come true. These stories will hypnotize you, transform you, fill you with longing, and set you free in a never-ending forest filled with awful possibilities.” —Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration and the Thriller Award-nominated Breaker

A gift of birds that transforms from beauty to terror. A disfiguring rivalry between models. A farmhouse haunted by tragedy between mother and daughter. Farah Rose Smith’s weird fiction tales are dark, decadent, and enigmatic. Written with meticulous attention to every word and a sensibility that hearkens back to fin de siècle, Of One Pure Will is a mesmerizing collection of gem-like stories that will resonate with contemporary horror readers and connoisseurs of turn-of-the-century of Decadence and Symbolist literature alike.

 “In Of One Pure Will, Farah Rose Smith deftly intertwines the oneiric, the mystical, and the brutally physical. This is a dark, elegiac collection from a powerful and unique new voice.” —Matthew M. Bartlett, author of Gateways to Abomination
