Over the Bed: A Little Book About Things That Dwell Paperback – January 30, 2018
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"In the night-dark world of Leo Lion's Over the Bed, cave walls bear markings of pointless hope, ashes mark dark doings, and ceilings are really windows into the depths of the soul. This collection of deep musings is as eclectic and gripping as any I have ever read. Some will make you shudder, some will stun, but all will make you think. None will disappoint!"
- Teel James Glenn, author of The Clockwork Nutcracker, Shadows of New York and other works
"Populated with faeries, circus performers, the old, the sleepless, the young, the brave, and the grieving, Over the Bed offers thirty-two wise and beautiful nuggets of prose. Leo Lion's flash-fiction collection shows an impressive imagination and a voice that is poetic and powerful. Definitely a debut author to be watched."
- Joanne Rendell, author of The Professors' Wives' Club, Crossing Washington Square, and Out of the Shadows
