Discount for preorders of DARK FAITH: INVOCATIONS featuring my story “Prometheus Possessed”

Dark Faith: InvocationsApex Publications announced yesterday that Dark Faith: Invocations, the sequel to their very well received Dark Faith anthology, is now available for preorder. As I’ve mentioned previously, I’m pleased to be back again for this second outing with a new story — part dystopian science fiction, part supernatural/spiritual horror — titled “Prometheus Possessed.”

I’m also pleased to announce that Apex has given all of the antho’s authors a way to offer readers a 10% discount on preorders. Just place your order at the publisher’s official Dark Faith: Invocations page and use the referral code DFCardin. (Yes, that’s my own personalized code, which means I get a referral fee when you use it.)

The first Dark Faith antho, containing my surreal ontological horror story “Chimeras & Grotesqueries,” was nominated for the Stoker and Black Quill Awards and widely reviewed with great enthusiasm. This second installment looks equally intense and excellent. See for yourself:

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.

  1. All right, you’ve done it. I’m going to have to order the whole stinkin’ book just to read your danged story (I’m sure many of the others will be excellent as well :-).

    I wish they had an ebook version available. I’m going to get crap from my wife if she sees me reading a book with that cover. (She just doesn’t get horror at all, unfortunately). I would gladly pay full price for such an offering.

    I greatly enjoyed DIVINATIONS OF THE DEEP, by the way. “Notes of a Mad Copyist” (hope I am remembering that title correctly) is sheer genius — it takes a spot right alongside THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH in my personal pantheon of dark tales.

    • Thank you sincerely for the great words, Alistair. And apologies for draining your wallet for a single story. 😉

      But seriously, your ranking of my “Notes of a Mad Copyist” alongside HPL’s “Innsmouth” is high praise indeed, and I’m humbled by it. I hope you find “Prometheus Possessed” to be similarly memorable.

      • Thank you, kind sir. The praise is very much deserved as far as I am concerned.

        My preorder is in; alas I now must face a long wait, alone and quivering in dark anticipation :-).

        And thanks for the tip about the discount code. Saved me a couple of bucks. Much appreciated.
