You think you’re safe. What a joke. You don’t think about the places you pass every day. The side streets. The alleys. Under bridges. The shadows. All you’d have to do is take a step to the side. Then you’d know. The Streets are filled with Shadows.
Religion, science, magic, love, family — everyone believes in something, and that faith pulls us through the darkness and the light. The second coming of Dark Faith cries from the depths with 26 stories of sacrifice and redemption.
Sublet an apartment inside God’s head. Hunt giant Buddhas in a post-apocalyptic future. Visit a city where an artist’s fantastic creations alter reality. Discover the deep cosmic purpose behind your office vending machine. Wield godlike powers and suffer the most heartbreaking of human limitations.
So much of our reality is determined by what we believe, and it can so easily be… undone. Editors Maurice Broaddus and Jerry Gordon have created an anthology that explores, questions, and shatters the boundaries of faith. Nominated for Bram Stoker, Nebula, and Black Quill awards.
This limited edition chapbook (available when you order directly from the publisher) continues where Dark Faith left off with four dark tales pushing the boundaries of faith. Slave songs mix with exorcisims, judgement day, and worlds where people eat gods.
