Although chronologically the second story I’ve had published in an anthology, “A Church Full Of Lovers” was actually my first serious attempt at putting together dark fiction.
Inspired by events that occurred and people I met while attending religious school as a kid, “A Church Full Of Lovers” follows three characters – an atheist, an agnostic, and a true believer.
The story revolves around their experiences during the end of the world (brought on by one of their number no less) and by the story’s conclusion, all three have changed their positions.
“A Church Full Of Lovers” appeared in the ill-fated “Candles And Curses” anthology. An even more rare tome than “Mystic Moon,” this collection was notable for its very short print time and for terribly mangling my name to Ty Gordrom somehow. If you’ve got this sitting on a bookshelf somewhere, its definitely a collector’s item, that’s for sure.
One day a new, expanded edition of this story will make its appearance online so this look back at my early work doesn’t fade away into obscurity forever. Be on the lookout!
