“For new readers of speculative fiction, “Dark Faith” will be remembered for risk-taking and for honest exploration on the topic of spirituality. For old-school horror fans, the book will be recognized for breaking some (truly) fresh ground in an old, beloved graveyard.”
“At times surprising, scary, humorous and almost always thought provoking, DARK FAITH is a must read for fans of religious horror and those seeking some chills of a deeper nature.”

“While Broaddus says he “invited horror, science fiction, and fantasy writers to riff on the idea of faith,” the predominant genre here is horror. I’m not much of horror fan, … but even I enjoyed some of the more outright stomach turning tales, as well as those clearly rooted in tradition but that did more than just repeat genre cliches.”
“If you’re like me and enjoy speculative fiction that explores themes of spirituality, I can’t recommend this anthology enough. Does earth magic really work? Is there such thing as enlightenment? Does God exist? Was Jimi Hendrix a god? Is there an afterlife? Does anything really matter? You want thought provoking? You got it!”
