“The Hum of the World dazzles and disorients the reader with Wamack’s evocative visions of deeply unsettling worlds. This collection distills a surreal, horrific, and oddly beautiful universe into a frenetic and unforgettable set of stories.”—Tiffany Morris, author of Elegies of Rotting Stars
"In an era where genre fiction generally flows into the better safe than sorry direction, Wamack intelligently takes risks. His brutal and visionary prose is bold and not to be missed."—David Agranoff, author of Punk Rock Ghost Story
"Wamack draws us into dark alleys, leading us by the hand, and when we've finally discovered we're alone it's far too late. The Hum of the World & Other Stories crafts shadowy portraits and emotional snapshots. It is a harrowing collage viewed through an intimate haze."—Ai Jiang, author of Linghun
"A common theme here is the shedding of skin. Short story collections are essentially that—a bundle of shed skins, remnants of a writer's past lives, and often you can see how much they've grown from one story to the next. Grant Wamack is a fucking viper, writing lines that sink deep, fucking you up for days. The Hum Of The World is how he came to be."—William Pauley III, author of The Bedlam Bible series
In this story collection, Grant Wamack shows the reader what lies beneath everything. Office workers subject to otherworldly beings and events, a martial artist with experimental supplements that transform him into something entirely new, cardboard homeless encampments where all is not as it seems. If you listen close enough you can hear the hum of the world.
