By T. R. Hummer

T. R. Hummer's new and commonly pyrotechnic assortment takes its name from the infrequent (in English) singular type of the typical notice ''ephemera.''

The imaginative and prescient that emerges is haunting, evoking the aftermath of a actual, mental, and non secular apocalypse.Relentless in its stalking of the boundary among being and nonbeing, Ephemeron turns into a tour-de-force that shines a focus into darkish corners of Being, revealing but extra darkness.
