Description

Blackfoot storyteller Alex Soop plunges us into a shocking well of imagination in his debut collection of short stories, Midnight Storm Moonless Sky. From hauntings on the Highway of Tears to fearful gatherings of ghosts and the sorrows of racism, Soop combines the social anxieties of Indigenous life with spellbinding flights and frights of speculative fiction. Through these enthralling stories of reality mixed with terror, readers get a wicked glimpse into the genre of Indigenous Horror - a combination of First Nations legends, dark fantasy, apocalyptic and paranormal enchantment, and monstrous secrets. In addition to his hungering to scare the wits out of readers, Alexander Soop also examines the overlooked matters affecting First Nations across the diverse world of Turtle Island. Midnight Storm Moonless Sky is Volume One in the Indigenous Horror series, a spinoff of the UpRoute Indigenous Spirit of Nature imprint.

About the Author

Alex Soop, of the Blackfoot Nation, meticulously voices each and every story from the First Nations Peoples' (Native American) perspective. While striving to entertain readers with his bloodcurdling tales, Alexander imaginatively implements, through his writing, the numerous issues that plague the First Nations people of North America by way of subliminal and head-on messages. These specific matters include alcohol and drug abuse; systemic racism; missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls; foster care; Residential School aftereffects; and over-incarceration. He also deals with legends of American and Canadian Indigenous folklore, such as Wendigo, Bigfoot, Skinwalkers and so on. His urban home is Calgary and his ancestral home is the Kainai (Blood) Nation of southern Alberta, Canada.
