Coming Soon: Sam Lang "Severed- Volume 3- True Faith"
The Trestle Press digital short serial, Severed, continues with True Faith. Sam Lang (Reprisal, A Vampire’s Guide to Sex, Theoretical Fishsticks) brings you the end of the world. It is a zombie apocalypse brought on by an unlikely source, where every day is a struggle to survive.
True Faith takes a stark look at what might have become of religion. It is about sacrifice, willingness to believe and cowardly hypocrisy. Zac continues his search for Liz on the hurricane-battered streets of Miami.
Sam Lang lived a cold, dark life. Ignored for most of his existence, he developed a fascination with things of a macabre nature. His writing explores the dark recesses of human behavior. Lang writes with heavy thematic elements and symbolism, creating harsh, hyper-realistic characters. Lang currently resides in Florida where he spends his time thinking of new ways to delight and horrify his readers.
Trestle Press has brought him out of the shadows with his series, Reprisal, a murderous tale of escaped convicts in a deserted town haunted by a mysterious shadow. The first six episodes are available as digital short stories from Trestle Press, starting with Making Plans, Making Memories followed by The Impeccant, Shadow Boxing, She’ll Get Your Engine Started, The First Cut is the Best and Sugar and Snails. More chapters are yet to come.
Sam has participated in the Author’s Lab collaboration series with Giovanni Gelati on The Two Johns. He also has the one-shots: A Vampire’s Guide to Sex, a short tale about (you guessed it) vampires and sex, and Theoretical Fishsticks, a holiday story full of dark humor.
