One man’s ability to travel in the astral realm leads to a terrifying discovery: powerful beings who manipulate lives and events for their own mysterious ends. It’s his, and our, first encounter with The Controllers, but far from the last. After reading this collection of six tales – two of them brand new – which take you from the past, through the present and into the far future, you’ll understand just how little influence you have over your own destiny.


With an introduction from the bestselling author of Dystopia and Created By, and Hollywood scriptwriter (the double Emmy Award-winning episode of Nightmares and Dreamscapes, ‘Battleground’) Richard Christian Matheson, cover art by Ben Baldwin (Gwendy’s Button BoxParadise Sky), and an extras section which includes scans of original handwritten drafts and a gallery of Controllers artwork, this is a truly unique new collection.

Take control...if you can!

Paul Kane’s lean, stripped-back prose is a tool that’s very much fit for purpose. He knows how to make you want to avoid the shadows and the cracks in the pavement.’ (Mike Carey – Bestselling author of the Felix Castor series of novels and The Girl With All the GiftsFellside and The Boy on the Bridge as M.R.
