Dark Earth Part 1: Prelude to the Nighmare
by Josh Hilden
One bright morning in June the sun and stars disappeared from the sky leaving the Earth cloaked in inky blackness. This is the story of a family separated by miles and their emotions as they attempt to deal with a world flipped upside down.
Zach is in county lockup due to a drunken brawl the night before when the sun disappears. Jolene is being held prisoner in her own home by a sadistic madman.
