Due for publication via the mighty Spectral Press, here is the blurb for Neverlight.
Are we mere puppets, a slave to the will of others?
Influence, an inescapable and unseen force exerted upon all of us. Whether coming by way of our parents or our peers, via the media or education, can we ever say that we are creatures of free will, acting according to our desires and not of those around us? Influence is the white noise that bombards our every waking moment, clouding our thought, hindering our judgement. From it, there can be no escape.
Looking beyond our world, there are those beings that dwell beneath the surface of our planet, ancient entities twisted in their resentment of our freedoms, that would mean us harm. Theirs is an influence ancient in its origin, born from evil and cruel intent. Their will presses upon us, calling out to our most primal instincts. We, oblivious, heed their call.
Containing thirty-one short stories that showcase the unmistakable voice of Dan Weatherer, here is an author fast becoming fluent in the art of dark fiction.
Are you ready for Neverlight?
