“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”
Darkness was first, before God brought the light, yet the light could not cover all, for shadows remain. They grow and fester and infect.
Dead Souls contains tales that explore the darker side of the soul, those that could not escape the shadows that followed them and even those that embraced them.
From the human being, inherently cruel, to the perceived influence of another, to a physical malevolent force, Dead Souls explores the depths of humanity as a lesson to the ignorant, the naive, the unwary.
The light is a temporary grace given to us by a benevolent force that will ultimately fail us, for the darkness is stronger and our souls… our souls are truly dead.
