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.
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..
