Philip Fracassi on Beneath a Pale Sky

Wed, June 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

BENEATH A PALE SKY collects eight stories of horror, including two original novellettes, that will take you from the high-security ward of a mental hospital to the top of a Ferris Wheel on an ocean pier. These stories will bury you in the rubble of an earthquake, pull back the veil on a soul’s journey into the afterlife, and turn a small midwestern town into the secret domain of cross-dimensional gods. Combining old-school horror with the modern weird, BENEATH A PALE SKY will take you places you’ve never been before, and show you sights you won’t soon forget.

“Fracassi draws you in with a hand as sure as the tap of an orchestra conductor’s baton. The stories in Beneath a Pale Sky are elegant, unsettling, and beautifully wrought. One of the best collections I’ve read in a long while.” - Christopher Golden, New York Times-bestselling author of Ararat and Red Hands
