Dark Faith: Invocations

Dark Faith: Invocations

An anthology of stories edited by

"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, Michael Gingold

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.

Join Max Allan Collins, Mike Resnick, Jay Lake, Jennifer Pelland, Laird Barron, Tom Piccirilli, Nisi Shawl, and a host of genre's best writers for an exploration into the things we hold dear and the truths that shatter us.
