A current[when?] work by Polymphus. Part Noir, part Black Comedy, part Urban Fantasy and all together very deeply disturbed. It goes a little something like this;

In an ambiguously grey city at an ambiguous point in the late 20th century, there's a tree. Every few weeks, like clockwork, someone will hang themselves from the tree, with little or no provocation. The story follows Winston Stein, a barista who's decided to go looking for answers after his girlfriend becomes the tree's latest victim.

Tropes used in The World Tree (novel) include:

It was raining. There's an old Greek superstition about it raining whenever someone dies. Didn't stop it feeling rather trite though.

It ends with fire. It doesn't start so romantically.

Winston: "Fate? Fuck that."
