DESCRIPTION

Fourteen short stories of occult, metaphysical, and fantastical horror that will follow you to the visions of your sleep.

The Dark Verse is a multiverse of Lovecraftian horror, spanning different realms and times, that touches upon evils that transcend the knowable. Whether a universe of planet-sized magic absorbers, an enlightened school of learning using the power of moons to cast an immense incantation, a family joining forces in an uncanny bond to face end-times, or a land ruled by the evoking of spirits, there is no escape from the occult horrors that await you within the innumerable folios of The Dark Verse.

This is Sharkchild's fifth collection of grim and ethereal stories and can be enjoyed independently from the other Dark Verse volumes. The cover of the book is imitation leather with foil stamping on the front, back, and spine; there is no dust cover. All three sides of the pages have black dusting. The artwork in its entirety, including a two-page illustration for each story, was created by John F. Stifter.
