A father searches through the woods for his missing daughter, and confronts demons of the past in an abandoned cottage.
A vampire recalls his sanguine birth into the society of the undead, an immortal life that has seen the rise and fall of empires, and an attempt to bring forth the Old Ones.
A brilliant but disgraced professor and hunter of the supernatural experiences déjà vu in an accursed town where death stalks victims in their dreams. He must decipher the meaning of his premonition to have a hope of survival. All the while his foes have set deadly snares for him.
A young man is trapped in a witch’s enchanted garden that becomes carnivorous with the rising of the moon.
A young woman interviews a man who tells a story of his boyhood during the Depression, when he is hired to help bore a well and instead brings eldritch horrors to the surface.
And a man scarred from war and loss enters a haunted pharos that broods over all realities, to bargain for the power to save his world.
Each plays a role in a greater story than they can imagine in this mosaic novel of dark fantasy adventures set in a Lovecraftian cosmos.
These are stories that take place at the edge of things, at dusk, at the changing of the seasons, in places where the walls have thinned and the immutable laws of reality have become mere suggestions. These are stories of people who find themselves at the borders and discover heroism – or horror.
There is no peace at the gate.
