about

Some monsters are nightmarish beasts with fangs and grotesque bodies. Others come in the form of bad decisions we dread or regret. Both kinds haunt and stalk us while we are alone at night. 
 
Wrath and Ruin is a collection of nine stories with a focus on fantasy and sci-fi threaded with quiet, traditional horror. Monsters, both literal and figurative, lurk in the shadows of this diverse anthology. 
 
Hunters pursue a ghoul in Victorian-era Pennsylvania. A psychologist interrogates the lone survivor of a mysterious shipwreck. Astronauts investigate a derelict alien spacecraft loitering in Earth’s solar system. A man flees powerful enemies in a bizarre, hostile land. These stories and more are included in this debut book by author C.W. Briar.  
 
Briar continues a tradition established by fellow Binghamton, NY writers like Rod Serling and Kevin Lucia: fantastical-yet-grounded stories with subtle horror.

"A highly satisfying mix of genres, WRATH AND RUIN offers a voice reminiscent of George MacDonald and C. S. Lewis', with a healthy sampling of Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard." -Kevin Lucia, author of Things Slip Through and Through a Mirror, Darkly.

C.W. Briar is the pen name of Charles Wasielewski. Briar grew up in woodland country near Barton, a miniscule town in Upstate New York. He currently resides near Binghamton, NY, the birthplace of Rod Serling and spiedie sandwiches.

Editorial Reviews

"A highly satisfying mix of genres, WRATH AND RUIN offers a voice reminiscent of George MacDonald and C. S. Lewis', with a healthy sampling of Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard. Best of all is the novella 'Ghoul' - here's hoping we see much more of its protagonists, Gideon Wells and his eccentric assistant, Rose." -Kevin Lucia, author of Things Slip Through and Through a Mirror, Darkly."Wrath and Ruin is an exciting and diverse collection. Briar's debut book shows his strong writing voice and vivid imagination. I can't wait to see what he puts out next!" -Ben Wolf, author of Blood for Blood.
