Urbana, IL; Golden Gryphon Press, 2003. "Quiet desperation" just about sums up Maria Aguilar's life. She is underpaid, overworked, and burdened with other people's responsibilities. Then things take a turn for the worse.
An apparent ghost begins stalking her, leaving clues to a long-buried mystery and hinting at the existence of an all-powerful, time-traveling Company somehow involved with her family. Before she learns the truth, Maria will need all her courage and strength . . . and the help of the Angel in the Darkness.
The Angel in the Darkness is Kage Baker's newest tale (nearly 30,000 words and more than 75 pages) of the Company, that secret cabal of scientists and investors who use time-traveling immortals to help them reap the benefits of the past. But all is not well within the Company, and this tale portends events to come in the growing conflict among the immortals themselves. Limited to 500 SIGNED/NUMBERED copies. Fine. OUT OF PRINT FROM THE PUBLISHER.
With wraparound cover art by J. K. Potter and Jennifer Potter.
