Ékleipsis is a short story collection written by Canadian author Tamel Wino, with hints of Chuck Palanuick’s and Cormac McCarthy’s stripped, vivid writing styles. This gripping book explores the havoc wreaked when ordinary people abandon their humanity to pursue their darkest desires, and questions just how far people will go to follow their baser instincts. 
Each story takes a version of a person we’ve known in our own lives and transforms them into something completely unnerving—yet all too familiar. 
These dark, complex characters and twisted tales of the once ordinary will change your perception of humanity forever.

Profile Picture

Ekleipsis, written by Tamel Wino, is a collection of five short stories all written from a first-person perspective. Each story explores the darker side of humanity as the characters in the story pursue their desires, some to extreme ends. The characters are ordinary people put in relatively ordinary situations, but their actions and words show the depths of human depravity. The big sins are on display throughout the stories: anger, lust, revenge, and even murder. The less-obvious, but equally devastating sins, are also on display: hatred, envy, lying, suspicion, and doubt.
