Excerpt From The Book:
“The choice, now, was simple. Jump the bridge, or cross it. He would decide when he reached the ghostly link between Divinity and Apocalypse, that mythical city beyond. The bridge was ominous enough. Crossing it may be more dangerous, more futile, than throwing himself from it.
Stories of pale men and greedy corporations, heresies and experimental sorceries waxed haunting and sinister beyond the bridge. Few had risked that place, only to return with rumors of dispassionate gods and lecherous angels content to wallow in their contracted oblations. Gods and monsters were not merely superstitions in Apocalypse, they were the populace, and they fed on every living soul.
Jonathan’s side of the bridge, however, held no higher aspiration. Divinity was filled with more subtle deception. Dreams left unfulfilled, or if fulfilled, murderous. Sudden and sanctioned disappearances of long-standing residents were commonplace. The slow burn of many of society’s brightest minds into the descent of atrophy and morbid maladjustment was simply Divinity’s way.”

About the Authors:
D.C. McGannon is finicky about his coffee. And loves tea. And lemonade. Sometimes together. He has had a lifelong love of things that lurk in the dark, and is quite comfortable under the light of a full moon. A writer, director, painter, and doodler, McGannon is co-author of the Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunters (Wyvern’s Peak Publishing) series of novels for young adults, and KAOS Obsidere: The Nightmare Has Begun (Dark Waters Press). He plays a mean air guitar, and lives and dreams with Holly, Michael, Nathaniel, and their sweet puppy, Jewel, somewhere in the Midwest.
C. Michael McGannon appreciates weird fiction, perhaps a bit more than one should at any given time. It has made him particular, fostering strange phobias, and even stranger dreams. He is fond of dragons, Japanese mythology, and the fine art of delivering timely and inappropriate puns. McGannon is an artist of diverse talents, and is co-author of the Charlie Sullivan and the Monster Hunters (Wyvern’s Peak Publishing) series of novels for young adults, and KAOS Obsidere: The Nightmare Has Begun (Dark Waters Press).Sushi is his delicacy of choice, if he has any say in the matter.
