The official synopsis: The subtle horror and infernal politics of the World of Darkness are shown in a new light in VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE: WALK AMONG US, spotlighting the terror, hunger, and power of the Kindred as they’ve never been seen before.

In A SHEEP AMONG WOLVES by Genevieve Gornichec, depression and radicalization go hand-in-hand as a young woman finds companionship in the darkness… In FINE PRINT by Cassandra Khaw, an arrogant tech bro learns the importance of reading the fine print in the contract for immortality… And in LAND OF MILK AND HONEY by Caitlin Starling, ideals and ethics bump heads with appetite on a blood farm. Three very different stories from three brilliant, distinct voices, but all with one thing in common: the hunger never stops, and for someone to experience the power, many others are going to have to feel pain.
