Moving. Disturbing. In Denver, a young woman grows up terrorized by something massive and unnatural that watches her while she sleeps. In west Texas, a boy’s world unravels as his brother relates an encounter with a strange figure in the woods. Struggling with insomnia and depression, a man named Mitch begins speaking to a creature of folklore in the trees behind his house. And along the plains of the Rocky Mountains, two college students discover a house that should not exist.
These and twelve other stories make up Karl Pfeiffer’s first collection following his debut novel, Hallowtide. Ranging from fiction to non-fiction, to the poetic and the profane, Into a Sky Below, Forever examines those places where the wild leaks into the refined, and the supernatural bleeds into the physical, where the only things left holding the world together are the things that truly matter the most.
This is a book about birth and rebirth. It’s a book about cycles and it’s a book about sex. It’s infancy and childhood and relationships and divorce and death and spirit, and the way these things repeat in time. As always, it’s about finding light in the darkness.
