Maverick industrialist, Theodore Falkon, commissioned famed physicist, Carson Everett, to build a revolutionary device—a projector that can open up a doorway to anywhere, the crossroads to infinity. But once activated, Falkon's hubris results in the Ka'ala effect, causing a global disaster.
Time and space run rampant, distorting different parts of the Earth, causing past, present, and unknown realities to collide. Dr Everett, the only person who understands the tremendous dangers involved, commissions a group of six specialists to invade Falkon's island stronghold in the South Pacific and attempt to shut down the experiment.
However, everyone on the strike team has a hidden relationship with Falkon and his project, and one of them holds the key to success or destruction.
Burrowing deep below the chaotic temporal field, they must risk losing their way within the vast caverns and the abyss of time, taking a one in a billion chance of repairing both a broken Earth and their own shattered lives.
Cloaked Press is proud to bring these stories to the world. We’re sure there is something for everyone within this year’s edition.

I'm dreaming of a Dark Christmas
With every little tale that I read
When the knife blades glisten
And scared children listen
To hear slayers in the night
Where sugarplums can be gory
In the frightening elf story
And trees eat favorite household pets
There are gifts on all the pages
Of terror through the ages
Told of gift giving regrets
I'm dreaming of a Dark Christmas
With every little tale I read
While the bright lights shine
And the family dines In the soft fireplace glow
So hold loved ones tight
It's not Santa visiting tonight
Death lies buried in the snow.
