Somebody asked me what the veil was, and I struggled to explain. It’s one of those metaphorical items that separates what humans see from what is really out there. It’s one of those things that keeps humanity safe because they remain to blind to see what is really out there hunting them. The veil has many purposes, making victims easier to reach and keeping the humans from hiding in their houses from the monsters that go bump in the night.
Behind the veil is a world with multiple stand alone stories of varying lengths set within it. The world is set up so that the characters can interact and that we can learn more about each character even when they only play minor parts in other short stories/novellas/novels.
