When the soul has been thoroughly poisoned, the body must abandon it. Everything feels unreal afterwards, but plastic heads shed no tears. Bram Stoker Award® winning author Nicole Cushing offers an excursion into the Weird, a quiet novella of a madwoman in a mad town, as an Episcopal priest grapples with the meaning of faith, reality, and if there is anything real to either of them, at the end of it all.
“I've never read anything quite like The Plastic Priest, and I'm delighted I have. A witty and incisive portrait of a priest beset by doubts, it mutates into a comedy of uncanny paranoia before exploding into weirdness that's as disturbing as it's liberating. Nicole Cushing's tale is a stimulating challenge, and her spare precise prose is a constant pleasure.” - Ramsey Campbell, author of Alone With the Horrors
