In the grim darkness of humanity’s future, DARK ASTRAL and its cosmic horror awaits! It is the far future, but one seen through the eyes of the Renaissance and intermingled with the New Testament. Following the desecration of the garden world Eden, humanity fled in a diaspora to the heavens. An ark bore them into the Vault of Night, powered by prayers to the god-head Sol Invictus. A new Jerusalem was erected among the stars; a pinnacle of humanity’s greatness. As time progressed, the memory of Eden was lost to a new dawn, regarded only as a faint echo in convocations to Sol Invictus. But then came The Other – and with it – the destruction of New Jerusalem. Left with no other choice, humanity returned to Eden… but it was not the world they remembered.
Daniel Fox is the author of contemporary thrillers ‘In The Dark’, ‘Lies That Bind’ and ‘Digital Twin’. Drawn to suspense and horror stories at a very young age, he spent many years with vivid nightmares, sleepwalking, and an overactive imagination. His novels are thrillers, but with a mysterious hint of paranormal throughout. Although the sleepwalking and (most of) his nightmares were left behind many years ago, his imagination has remained firmly intact. Interests include photography, biking, music and obsessing over any well-written story, as a consumer and a creator. Influences include the mighty Chuck Palahniuk and the master himself, Stephen King.
