The once-abandoned West Virginia mining town of Ichor Falls lies always shrouded in mist. It crouches like a slick mushroom in a river valley, brooding. Abandoned by the world for several decades, new inroads are being created. The Elysium Group, the land’s new owners, are attempting to revitalize the near idyllic Falls, welding modern design to repaired turn-of-the-century ruins that slouch in decay.
It is 1986, and four middle-schoolers have moved with their families to take up residence in the new Ichor Falls suburb, Elysia. Their parents have told them that it’s a wonderful new opportunity for them and the family. That things can be different here, no matter what came before.
But Ichor Falls watches the passing of time as a face in a tree. History dwells here, thick and choking and rotten. Stories whispered in the grey light of day become real and inexorable in the night. From the depths of its mist, poised inside the edge of dusk, Ichor Falls waits for a day that comes all too soon.
Ichor Falls is written by Kris Straub, and is absolutely worth checking out.
