The Darkened Doors Short Story Bundle

Happy Halloween and/or Reformation Day, depending on what scares you!

In celebration of the spookiest of holidays (and also the door of Wittenberg’s venerable All Saints’ Church), I’ve put together a little bundle of short stories having to do with sanctuaries, and the things that threaten them—from outside, and from within.

Or you can do all of those things, or none of them. In any case, I’d like to tell you a little bit about how Game came into the world.
