“Hell is truth seen too late.” —Thomas Hobbes
1. The Leviathan
Keep going, Sayeth the demon.
Past the iron shore where pale arms whip the water into black foam. Through the blast furnace radiating from the crying walls of Dis. Far beyond the soft, red glow emanating from Deep Hell.
Paddle until your shoulders ache, and your heart shatters, and you are underneath tortured green clouds scudding over what was once the horizon.
Here, and only here, the river water slackens and tires. Runs still, and deep, and darkest.
Lean over and you will see a glimmer of all that ever was.
You will see the stars.
A story of science fiction, horror, and heroic rebellion exclusive to your Kindle and Kindle Fire: Fishing the Styx:
