Bad Dream Entertainment is proud to announce the upcoming release of Max Halper’s debut novella, ‘Lamella‘. The story follows a young professional whose reality slowly begins dissolving with the arrival of a strange child into his home. He tries to find answers, but no one else around him seems to notice the otherworldly features of the girl who grows far to fast for a human…
The amazing cover illustration was handled by Turkish surrealist Dolce Paganne, with design by Ia Gabunia.
‘Lamella’ releases March 7th, 2022 in physical and digital formats. Reviewers can request ARCs by getting in touch through email, or on our socials. Pre-order information will come soon.
Mel Lane assumed his life was on the track it was supposed to be: a career with upward movement, a home, a long-term relationship. That is, until he comes home one day to a girlfriend he knows and a child he doesn’t. Stranger still, no one else seems disturbed by the child’s presence—or by its bizarre, inhuman features. Mel is a reasonable man, and he knows there is a reasonable explanation—but once the veil of reality begins to ripple, the world around him becomes something he simply doesn’t understand. Worse yet, it’s becoming very clear that he may never have understood it quite as well as he thought he did.
He knows there are answers, written somewhere on the walls or in the airwaves, but finding them will mean confronting truths about himself and the people around him as he spirals down a rabbit hole of identity and place that will threaten to upend the delicate balance of his life.-Back cover of ‘Lamella’.
