Underworld Dreams is Daniel Braum’s third short story collection of genre transcending, strange stories full of tension between the supernatural and psychological. Within the pages Braum’s multi-dimensional characters face dark underworlds and strange experiences that illuminate the human condition and world (we think) we know.


Advance Praise:


“These dark, genre-blended stories have the same seeming veracity as dreams (no matter what happens, you believe it). The writing is detailed and patient, the characters, original and compelling, and the stories unfold with a sense of strange wonder that leaves a reader in their spell. When you finish one, it’s only then you realize you’d been in the underworld, and it’s like waking from a nightmare.”

– Jeffrey Ford World Fantasy Award Winner


About the Book:


Take a journey through these dark underworlds and revel in strange experiences that illuminate the world you know. While you are there you might encounter…

Beautiful sharks seeking revenge on land. * A fur coat haunted by the ghosts of those who died for it. * A young rock and roller who is not careful what he wishes for * Unexpected soldiers in a supernatural war over an Australian concert hall * Strange beings sabotaging a subway tunnel that should not exist * A doppelganger born from the lightless depths of a coral reef on the continental shelf *

and many more strange stories full of tension between the supernatural and psychological.

Underworld Dreams is Daniel Braum’s third short story collection. Appearing in the volume for the first time is the original story “Between Our Earth and Their Moon” and the original novella, the title story, “Underworld Dreams (Sogni del Mundo Sotteraneo)” along with an introduction and story notes by the author.
