Dark Faith: Invocations

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.

Includes the short story ‘The Sandfather’, by Richard Wright.


“The stories are well-crafted and transition smoothly from one voice to the next, reminding you over and over again, “If there is someone or something looking over you, it doesn’t mean you will be happy or that everything will be OK.” Even when you know it, that thought is horrifying.” – Michael Gingold, Fangoria Magazine

“The writers, both new and seasoned and in between, are among the best of the best. And the stories in the anthology show it, too.” – Scott M Sandridge, SpecMusicMuse Review

“Dark Faith: Invocations is a highly successful anthology, ranging in tone and content across religions like Christianity, Islam and Buddhism, while flirting with magic and other belief systems. We run the gamut of sincerity, honesty, irony, cynicism and humour, something to be treasured when so many editors and publishing houses choose not to explore the darker corners of faith.” – David Marshall, Thinking About Books

“When thinking about trying to write a fantastical story in any genre, certain ideas become routine; often breaking into unknown territory seems near impossible. The writers in Dark Faith: Invocations shatter all these guidelines and boundaries.”The Troubled Scribe
