The Blurb Of Make Pretend

Make Pretend is the first book in a series collecting all of Armand Rosamilia’s short fiction. Twenty-one tales ranging from horror to crime thriller to science fiction, contemporary fiction to fantasy and more. From stories a few days ago to one forty years old.

Some stories you might’ve read in previous collections or anthologies. Maybe on the author’s Patreon. Many more never before read. Written for this and the future collections.

Make pretend these stories aren’t real, aren’t fact, and aren’t exposing the best and worst of humanity…

With a foreword by esteemed author Tim Meyer


…Make Pretend by Armand Rosamilia is a must own short story collection for any fan of horror, suspense,and the weird. I love this type of subject and am quick to frown upon someone who doesn’t do these genres justice. This will not be one of those times…A good short story collection is like fine bourbon, which needs to be sipped and enjoyed overtime. The short stories contained within Make Pretend are like a shot of George T Stagg…
