The University of Corporeal & Ethereal Studies by Wolfgang Edwards
At the University of Corporeal & Ethereal Studies meddling with unknown powers can be dangerous work. Courses in arts and sciences experiment with supernatural forces to solve the mysteries of the universe, but when school projects go awry, the students may discover more than they would like to about the madness of the cosmic ‘Beyond’.
Eight interwoven stories follow students whose school work, social lives and inner demons crash together, leading to fantastic and horrible experiences, supernatural powers, and a fuller understanding of the dark depths of their world.
Classes include subjects such as time travel, alchemy, oneironautics, psychedelic transformation, rogue automatons, cosmic ghosts, reality-warping crystals, and more.
Inspired by many authors of science fiction, fantasy and horror, including H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, William Gibson, Kurt Vonnegut and Isaac Asimov.

“A wonderful twist of horror, steampunk, and psychological suspense”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Shannan Neff
The University is a unique book that reminds me of Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Lovecraft, and recently Astor/Weiss. I loved the way there’s eight separate stories that all actually loop back into and around one another. I think the automaton that went murderous whilst allegedly making Chase’s life “easier” was my favorite although they were all really good. You really question whether meddling in nature is a wise idea or if it’ll come back to bite you in ways unexpected.
