Dark Faith


Nominated: Bram Stoker Award, Black Quill Award, and Nebula Award!

Faith.  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.

Pick up a gun and write a new psalm with Brian Keene.  Confront the inhumanity of modern society with Gary Braunbeck.  Find magic behind the suburbs of Portland with Jay Lake.  Walk the line between art and desire with Tom Piccirilli. Through twenty-six stories you will be transported from the rooftops of the twin towers to steps of the Vatican.

Dark Faith is available directly from Apex Publications, as well as Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

Sample Stories:

Ghosts of New York by Jennifer Pelland

The Days of Flaming Motorcycles by Catherynne M. Valente


“It may be the best anthology I’ve ever read…reads like a ‘Year’s Best’ rather than a nominee for it.”
~Horror Web

“Terrible beauty and mind-shattering horror. It’s all here, in what’s sure to be one of the year’s best anthologies.”
~ Shroud Magazine

“No matter what your ideas about heaven or hell or religion (or lack therof) are, this book is designed to challenge you, to make you think, and most importantly, to entertain you.”
~ Sevier County News
