Invocations

invocationsReligion, 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.

Invocations is available directly from Apex Publications, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon.

Reviews:

“The stories are well-crafted and transition smoothly from one voice to the next, reminding you over and over again, “If there is someone or something looking over you, it doesn’t mean you will be happy or that everything will be OK.” Even when you know it, that thought is horrifying.”
~Fangoria Magazine

“Dark Faith: Invocations is a highly successful anthology, ranging in tone and content across religions like Christianity, Islam and Buddhism, while flirting with magic and other belief systems. We run the gamut of sincerity, honesty, irony, cynicism and humour, something to be treasured when so many editors and publishing houses choose not to explore the darker corners of faith.”
~Thinking About Books
