Dark Regions Press has announced that Stephen Mark Rainey’s Other Gods is now available for pre-order. Spanning a career of over twenty years, the 16 tales in Stephen Mark Rainey’s Other Gods depict an alluring yet macabre world. With settings ranging from the remote backwoods of Virginia to the urban wilderness of Chicago, the veneer of Rainey’s world appears familiar, even comforting; yet, beneath its surface ancient, malignant powers lurk, ready to spring forth and destroy any who discover them whether intentionally or inadvertently.
“Other Gods represents a good-sized slice of my body of short fiction from the past twenty years, featuring reprints (some significantly revised) from various publications, and a never-before-published tale called ‘Antidotes.'” says Rainey. “With everything from weird World War II drama (‘Sky of Thunder, Island of Blood’) to other-worldly monstrosities pummeling the hell out of this one (‘The Transformer of Worlds’) to atmospheric ghost stories (‘Lake of Shadows’), Other Gods lays out in no uncertain terms why so many people over the years have said to me, ‘Dude, you’re weird.’ I’ll go with that. I hope you’ll try out Other Gods and get a little weirded out yourself. It’s a good thing.”
