About the Book

16 stories of darkness and promise

In the beginning, as in many beginnings, there were deals with the Devil, attacks by unlikely demons, ghost dogs, strange things in a cemetery, long walks home, true love and true hate and true ambivalence. Hack Hammond fought “Indestructum” for his girlfriend and the world. Denis Grey took “A Walk Down Main Street” sometime after Clinton Irving vowed there would be “No More Lonely Knights.” Angela found quite a reason to “Make It Big.” Caspar Thomas should have thought things through before “Four Hours,” and Conrad Warner should have seen it coming in “Dog Days.” And everyone just stared at “The Obelisk.” In the beginning, there were First Lies ….
