"Matthew Warner's collection, DOMINOES IN TIME, not only shows tremendous range and skill, it's like the best of Stephen King: ordinary characters (albeit unique in their own way) demand our sympathy and interest while, at the same time, they find themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Warner's imagination is vast, and these stories leap off the page, staying with the reader in mind and heart. A highly recommended group of tales by a virtuoso writer."
— Lisa Mannetti, three-time nominee and winner of the Bram Stoker Award, author of Deathwatch and The Box Jumper

Dominoes in Time
by Matthew Warner

About the Book:
Like the first domino in a chain, the most traumatic episode of a person's life shapes all things to come.

For a fashion model, the key event is a repulsive facial blemish caused by a photographer with an unusual camera. For a man in a post-apocalyptic shelter, it's the need for emergency medical attention from the last remaining doctor: his ex-wife. For a homeless man, it's the realization that the backward-walking man beside him controls world events from his park bench.

Matthew Warner ranges from the 19th to the 43rd century in this collection reprinting eighteen horror and science fiction stories.  In the foreword and story notes, Warner describes how his life inspired these tales of infidelity, parenthood, and death.  It includes some of his most popular stories, such as "Backwards Man" and "Second Wind."

"Dominoes in Time showcases Warner's ability to pen authentic paranoia from many different angles...and his blending of the macabre with some finely placed humor makes this collection sing. At times reminiscent of classic Twilight Zone episodes, Warner's stories are engaging and more often than not will take you places you didn't see coming."

"Each story in Dominoes in Time is a dark gem—cold, sharp, and filled with sinister wonder."

"Although he’s an accomplished novelist and has written screenplays he really shines as a short story writer. … this is very much worth your time and money."
— Jim Morazzini, Beneath the Underground

"18 pivotal experiences light up the landscape for a delightfully eclectic cast of characters in Warner's new collection of short stories. … With no attempts to cater to the politically correct or even polite, the story’s gritty language is part of this author's hallmark style."
— Lisa Rochford, News Leader

"Dominoes in Time is a fantastic collection, and proves that the author should be front and center in dark fiction."
— Sheri White, The Horror Review
