"Oddities and Entities" is a collection of six tales bordering on the paranormal/supernatural genres.  The stories are thematically linked and explore the definition of life beyond the fragile vessel of the human body.  "Oddities and Entities" consists of: 'Boneview', in which a young woman struggles to balance her ability to see through people with the presence of a supernatural creature in her life; 'Shift/Change', in which a hospital worker struggles to regain his memory as he is confronted by a series of desperate people (this story was previously published in the July 2010 issue of 'Aphelion'); 'My Other Me', in which a lonely college student finds himself displaced from his body by his alter ego; 'Gray', in which a frustrated man is stunned to discover a little creature has been living in his head; 'Elmer Phelps', in which a brother and sister find themselves linked in a strange reality by a bat bite in their youth; and lastly, 'Appendage', in which a cynical mercenary is hired by his son to protect a research lab on the verge of a stunning discovery.

About the Author:

Roland Allnach, after working twenty years on the night shift in a hospital, has witnessed life from a slightly different angle. He has been working to develop his writing career, drawing creatively from literary classics, history, and mythology. His short stories, one of which was nominated for the Pushcart Prize, have appeared in several publications. His first anthology, ‘Remnant’, saw publication in 2010. It has since gone on to critical acclaim and placed as a Finalist/Science Fiction in the 2011 National Indie Excellence Awards. ‘Oddities & Entities’ marks his second stand alone publication. When not immersed in his imagination, he can be found at his website, www.rolandallnach.com, along with his published stories. Writing aside, his joy in life is the time he spends with his family.

Review:

'"Oddities & Entities" by Roland Allnach. . .I have never encountered any other stories that even approach the situations these present with authority and authenticity. If I could boil down my perception of this book into a single word, that word would be WOW!' - Lee Ashford, Readers Favorite

"Oddities & Entities"...is completely different from anything I have ever read before. These twisted stories gave me an awesome escape...As a result of the uniqueness of the author's ideas, he is in control of the journey because you will have no idea what is going to happen next in his creative imagination.-P. Lovitt, Reader Views
