A wickedly funny novelette that peers beneath the hood of an evil cult and finds the inevitable collisions between orthodoxy and modern culture. “The Cabal of Thotash” features sharp dialogue and sharper sacrificial knives as an urban, Lovecraftian sect attempts to bring about the end of existence.

The Cabal of Thotash has languished for years within their poorly-ventilated Manhattan lair. All of their rituals to summon an ancient malice and help it unmake reality have accomplished little beyond annoying the upstairs neighbor. When a charismatic sacrifice talks her way off the dark altar and into a leadership position, the Cabal’s fortunes turn around, as do their ideas about what it means to serve the greater evil.
“Clever, dark satire that will make you giggle.”
“I honestly haven't enjoyed reading anything this much in ages.”
