Fly on the Wall Press is excited to announce the upcoming acquisition of "Ingrown," a collection of short stories by Katie Oliver, scheduled for publication on December 2nd, 2024. In this captivating collection, readers will be transported into a world where the natural and supernatural blend seamlessly, as characters embark on journeys of self-discovery.
Within these pages, readers will encounter an array of uncanny tales that straddle the line between reality and the extraordinary. Oliver's vivid narratives offer a glimpse into the space where the everyday collides with the unexpected.

Throughout this collection, Oliver examines the intricacies of human and non-human relationships, addressing themes that transcend gender. Characters search to uncover hidden truths about themselves and grapple with topics ranging from death and suicide to sexual assault.
