summon demon

by Miracle

In the dead of night, six children leave a home for at-risk youth with a fantastical flying creature—one that appears to the children as a white unicorn whose horn has been replaced with a long black blade—who brings them to a strange, seething desert that contains only a cathedral, a diner, and hypnotically shifting trees. There, they must learn to understand one another, or they must die.

Combining the hypermodern, surreal visions of China Mieville and Grant Morrison and the storytelling charge of Charles Dickens himself, Sharing—the first installment in The Fold, the forthcoming seven-volume slipstream epic from underground raconteur Miracle Jones—is at once an allegory of loneliness and a con brio American fantasy adventure, one that tells the story of what those children do there, whom they meet, and how—and if—they escape.
