When Captain Harland and his crew are stranded on an uncharted island, their only chance for survival lies in a strange and seemingly abandoned ship. But there is something beyond human understanding on board, and few who hear its call can keep from falling to madness… or worse.
The Death of Us is a short tale of lurking horror that touches upon a strange, unknowable entity. It comes from The Parasomnic Chronicles, a collection of separate stories which ultimately weave together to form a single, fantastical world.
About the Author
Jay Kerschner has always been a storyteller. Even before being able to type, he dictated stories to his parents, who struggled valiantly to catch and record every word in writing. Now, years later, his first widely published endeavor is The Parasomnic Chronicles, a collection of stories grown out of the possibilities he saw in countless fantastical realms but rooted, as ever, in the real world and in his own interests in such things as music, art, and the course of human culture and evolution. Even though these tales may all occur in a far and foreign place, they come from a part of him closer to the heart than he had ever imagined possible.
