Description

Dagon, the immortal god of Lovecraft lore is back! This time, he brings a promise to us, the gift of eternal life. The Pope decrees a new sacrament, that of Everlasting Life On Earth. All those of the faith must drink of it. Other religions demand the same of their followers. But there is one holdout, the Archbishop of New York. Will he openly defy the Pope? And what lengths will he go to do so?
Following the H.P. Lovecraft mythology, this is a short story with a thoughtful approach, and one that challenges myth versus religion, and what it means to be human, even to the point of invoking the ultimate choice. A powerful story of choices and consequences.
