Engines of the Broken World

Jason Vanhee

In this scary debut from Vanhee, the end of the world has come and Merciful Truth and her older brother Gospel live in a remote cabin far away from the dead and dying cities. After a long illness, their mother dies and they're unable to bury her because of the frozen ground. Her corpse is left decomposing under the kitchen table. Worse still, Merciful and Gospel believe that their mother isn't really dead. They see a white form in the rocking chair and Merciful hears a voice she thought she’d never hear again singing "Hush, little baby."
