This collection explores the realms of fear in the real and gothic landscapes of the living. The characters, isolated by both social class and personal choice, find themselves defined by single events in which they must face their greatest fears. Some embrace it, some run from it. In pursuing their desires, they realize that desires exist merely because there is a void to fill, and it is this filling of the void which has been their driving force. These voids, however, are dark, empty places which occupy a subtle, outward presence in real life, but are, to many, best left unexplored.
