The 18 short stories in The Darkest Abyss: Strange Mormon Stories range from alternate history and science fiction to Mormon folk realism and experimental literary forms.

Who do you become if your father converts a Dryad on his LDS mission to Finland, smuggles her back to the U.S., and has you read key academic texts on myth and folklore as an adolescent? What would an LDS couple do if they were given the opportunity to adopt a child who was raised in an end times cult when that child then starts acting strange? Why would one of the Third Nephites fast and how would he break that fast? Why does a deceased Mormon writer keep visiting four other authors in the Spirit World and what do they have to say to him?

This story collection is for Mormons of all stripes who are open to exploring core questions of Mormonism--including history, speculative theology, gender and family dynamics, and the future of both the LDS Church and Mormonism more generally--in alternative, weird, strange, sometimes humorous, sometimes harrowing (but not too harrowing) ways..
