- 2021 INDIES Finalist
- Finalist, Short Stories (Adult Fiction)
These stories are filled with beautifully drawn and often profoundly flawed characters. Tysdal looks unflinchingly at the darkness of society, at suicide, at internet trolls, at violence. These stories have intricate and unexpected plots, filmic descriptions and crisp writing, but what will stay with the reader is the way Wave Forms and Doom Scrolls breaks the reader's heart and then puts it back together again filled with compassion for these lost souls.
