Welcome to The Fearing Universe!

Welcome, reader. What is The Fearing, you might ask?

The Fearing takes place in modern times, in a world very much like ours. With one notable exception. One of our greatest psychoanalysts and philosophers, Carl Gustav Jung, postulated that there is a vast collective unconsciousness that humanity taps into. It’s the place where all of the deepest pieces of ourselves live, despite our cultures or religions—archetypes or universal symbols such as The Great Mother, the Shadow, the Hermit and the Tree of Life. It’s also the seat of our deepest emotions—love, hate, serenity…and fear.

Imagine that within this vast collective unconscious there is a receptacle, a bowl that holds all of the fears that humanity has accumulated over the centuries. Every single thing a human has ever been afraid of. All collected, drip by drip through millennia.

Imagine that this bowl has filled, that it must empty so it can reset itself.

Now imagine that all fears, everything from the most commonly shared fears to the most deeply personal are released onto the earth, all at the same time.

The chaos, the apocalypse caused by this is The Fearing.

The Fearing was originally released serially in 2019 by Grey Matter Press, in four separate novellas that form an entire novel. They are:

  • The Fearing Book One: Fire & Rain
  • The Fearing Book Two: Water & Wind
  • The Fearing Book Three: Air & Dust
  • The Fearing Book Four: Earth & Ember

The Fearing: Blood & Brimstone takes place firmly in the timeline of the complete novel. It tells the story of Timothy Jacoby and Tam Washington, two of the novel’s primary antagonists, who show up in Books Three and Four. It expands and deepens their stories, and hopefully the novel as a whole.

"The Fearing isn’t only Taff’s best book to date, it’s the kind of book you put on the shelf reserved for the ones that really did something to you emotionally, intellectually, physically. A modern master at play."

—Josh Malerman, New York Times bestselling author of Bird Box and Mallorie

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
