SYNOPSIS

A grieving man travels through time via car crash. A family of matriarchs collects recipes for the dead. A woman gains an unexpected child in the midst of a bunny apocalypse. An outcast finds work in a magical slaughterhouse. Julie C. Day’s debut collection is rife with dark and twisted tales made beautiful by her gorgeous prose and wonderfully idiosyncratic imagination. Melding aspects of Southern Gothic and fabulism, and utilizing the author’s own scientific background, Day’s carefully rendered settings are both delightful and unexpected. Whether set in a uniquely altered version of Florida’s Space Coast or a haunted island off the coast of Maine, each story in this collection carries its own brand of meticulous and captivating weirdness. Yet in the end, it is the desperation of the characters that drives these stories forward and their wild obsessions that carry them through to the end. It is Day’s clear-eyed compassion for the dark recesses of the human heart and her dream-like vision of the physical world that make this collection a standout.


“Julie C. Day’s new collection, Uncommon Miracles, relates stories about what happens when strangeness, dream-like and nightmarish, infiltrates the lives of everyday people. A unique new voice in short fiction – sharp writing and a wonderfully idiosyncratic imagination.”

Jeffrey Ford, author of The Girl in the Glass, The Physiognomy, The Drowned Life, A Natural History of Hell. World Fantasy Award winner, Nebula Award winner, Shirley Jackson Award winner, Edgar Allan Poe Award winner.

“A collection of stories to unsettle your dreams and make the world a stranger and more delightful place.”


Kelly Link, author of Get in TroubleStranger Things Happen, and Magic for Beginners. Pulitzer Prize Finalist, Hugo Award winner, Nebula Award winner, World Fantasy Award winner.

“Julie C. Day makes a bold debut with this genre-bending collection of stories. At times whimsical, at times heartbreaking, but always clear-eyed and honest, Uncommon Miracles proves that Day has joined the front ranks of the writers carrying American fantasy into a new golden age.”

Nathan Ballingrud author of North American Lake Monsters and The Visible Filth. Shirley Jackson Award winner.


“Julie C. Day’s stories are strongly strange, whether happening in a sort of now in this country or in a weirdly altered past. These stories seem to be what the term American Gothic was meant for.”

John Crowley, author of Little, Big and the Ægypt tetralogy. World Fantasy Award winner for Best Novel, World Fantasy award winner for Life Achievement, & recipient of the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters Award in Literature.
