More Than Life Itself by Joseph Nassise

How far would you go to save someone you love?

Sam Dalton is at the end of his rope. His daughter, Jessica, lies dying in a hospital bed from a mysterious disease that has her doctors completely baffled. Without being able to identify the cause, they are unable to devise a cure. All Sam can do is watch his little girl wither away, day after day.

Sam is teetering on the edge of despair when an encounter with an empty-eyed vagrant named the Preacher gives him the opportunity he has been searching for, the chance to bring his precious daughter back from the very brink of death. Sam doesn�t know who the Preacher is, or if he is even human, but Sam doesn�t care. All he can see is the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. If he is strong enough to do what needs to be done.

How far would you go to save someone you love?

Sam Dalton is about to find out.


�A filler free and nicely old fashioned tale� � SFX Magazine

�This novelette is at its most powerful when it is describing a man tormented by the decline and imminent death of his only daughter. When a mysterious apparition suggests that he make use of an ancient ritual which can save her, but only if he is willing to commit seven murders, he is initially horrified as well as skeptical. But then the opportunity to commit the first arises almost by chance, and it works, so he finds himself firmly set on the path of homicide to save her. But there is a catch. There�s always a catch. You�d think even fictional characters would know that by now.� � Science Fiction Chronicle

��a nasty little chiller that slices through the squeamish with surgical precision.� � SFCrowsnest

If you like dark stories with Alfred Hitchcock/Twilight Zone style endings, you'll like this.  For me there is enough darkness in the real world so I prefer stories with good endings to make me feel good..
