Built to encompass the entire range of lifeless mountains, it had always, relentlessly, clanked on and on. Within, vast halls and endless corridors were filled with the sounds of metal on metal, with hissing steam, with squealing gears. In the eyes of its citizens, it was sacred, deified, omniscient. Enshrined in their mythology for innumerable generations, it had gone by countless designations, but its truest name was perhaps its plainest: the Machine.

For Ballard, the Machine is a place of tedium, and ignorance, and cruelty. He sees little use in his mundane job and secretly questions the purpose of the Machine. When tragedy strikes, Ballard is forced to embark on a paranoid journey that will take him outside of the Machine, and everything he's ever known, over the edge into darkness, past the point of no return…toward the blackness known as Marrow's Pit.

Now here's something you don't read everyday. A horror story masquerading as a dark dystopian fantasy with enough steampunk elements to almost qualify as sci-fi. In Marrow's Pit Keith Deininger effortlessly describes a future society that is vastly different from our own - revolving as it does aroun...

I am in my second year of membership at Darkfuse and novellas like Marrow’s Pit are the reason why I joined and am still a member. Central to the story is “the machine”—a world-sized mechanism so vast that no one is familiar with more than a few sections and so old that its creators, even its purp...
