The Dark Verse is a multiverse of Lovecraftian horror, spanning different realms and times, that touches upon evils that transcend the knowable. Whether a stadium audience dazzled by the mystic power of alchemy, a gargantuan entity that plummets to the earth calling out a single human's name, or a world where all doorways leading to it usher death, there is no escape from the occult horrors that await you within the innumerable folios of The Dark Verse.

Thirteen short stories and a novella of occult, metaphysical, and fantastical horror that will follow you to the visions of your sleep. Whether a cosmic assassin able to annihilate any living entity across all of existence, a universe where physical size is a direct relationship to magical power, or a realm where money is made of living and dead flesh, there is no escape from the occult horrors that await you within the innumerable folios of The Dark Verse. 

This is Sharkchild's fifth collection of grim and ethereal tales. It is currently being funded on Kickstarter and is estimated to release at the end of Spring 2020. Back the book now and get your name on its pages.

His self-published books are praised for their illustrious hardcover binding and artwork and have won six awards. The Dark Verse is also a podcast through which Sharkchild releases new short stories on a regular basis. The style and atmosphere of his writing is often compared to the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

Some of Sharkchild's other projects include Dark Energy Discoveries and Gravescabs. Dark Energy Discoveries is an EBM music project containing his rich vocal layers and soundscapes that are embodied by a virtual group of inter-dimensional beings who have joined forces to explore the ever-expanding reaches of existence. Gravescabs are reversible plush covers that are placed over a base plush toy called a Skell.
