Publication Date: February 7, 2017



Henry Kyllo is a Runner, a member of a secret society called the Inferne Cutis. Every day he is chased through the city by Hunters whose goal is to fill him with bullets. It is a secret war steeped in history, tradition, and mutual fear.

Rumours abound about what happens when a Runner achieves ascension, but it has supposedly never happened before, so no one knows for sure. Except that it has happened before. And it is happening again.

This time, to Henry Kyllo.

About the Author

Brett Savory recently stepped down as the Co-Publisher of the World Fantasy and British Fantasy Award-winning ChiZine Publications so he could dedicate more time to writing. His title is now Editor/eBook Czar/Webmaster, so he apparently thinks he can hang on in the company simply by increasing the titles he holds. He's had over 50 short stories published - some of those collected in No Further Messages - as well as two other novels, In and Down and The Distance Travelled. He's halfway through his fourth novel, Lake of Spaces, Wood of Nothing, is the drummer for the metal band Ol' Time Moonshine - who just released their first full-length album, The Apocalypse Trilogies: Space Wolf and Other Dark Tales on Salt of the Earth Records - and lives in Peterborough, ON, Canada with his wife, writer/editor/publisher Sandra Kasturi. brettsavory.com twitter.com/brettsavory Author hometown: Toronto, CN
