In a landscape charged with terror and magic, children go missing, relationships sour, and what we think we know turns strange. These stories are sketches of domestic horror, where love becomes brittle yet it is all we have. Somewhere the war is already started, and slowly but surely it seeps out into the world.
“Notes From the Coming War is a stunning, visceral, haunting collection of stories. At times I felt the need to look away, but being hypnotized, I could not. Gavin Pate is weaving tales full of dark voodoo and clever witchcraft—be sure your house is in order, your doors and windows sealed tight.”
—Richard Thomas, author of Disintegration and Breaker
Gavin Pate lives with his family in Norfolk, Virginia, where he teaches at��Virginia Wesleyan University.
