The Darkside of Zion
Since the golden age of American literature, few books have excited the imagination more than the OZ books by L Frank Baum. They have went on to inspire rock bands and fellow writers to day-dream on the metaphors, motifs and hidden symbolism contained within. Notably the links between Pink Floyd's "Darkside of the Moon" and the 1939 film version. This novella takes the idea of Witches, hidden conspiracies and secret occult rites to another dimension entirely. Dealing with the setting of WW1 era Mexico during the time of Pancho Villa. A young girl is kidnapped into a Circus of horrors where her only escape is the dreamworld of Zion, inspired by Biblical stories about False Gods, Demonic Cults and Ancient Wars. Dorotea must overcome the creatures that lurk in both this world, and a nightmarish "Holyland" suffering purges and massacres that mirror her real world experience during the Mexican Revolution. You will find Goddesses, Vampires, Shapeshifters, Witchcraft and Possession in this tale of growing up among the ruins of worlds in transition, strife and betrayal by those you trust.
