Chapter 24 of Prophecies and Penalties

Reading is fundamental (to demonolatry)

Reading is fundamental (to demonolatry)

Emily Fisher is going to be tried by the Children of the New Revelation for corrupting the young and for being a demonolater. She is confined to her residence, not by the High Council, but by her half-sister to protect her from mob violence. While she frets and fumes, she has three visitors: an alleged demon, an alleged holy man, and someone who deliberately evades the guards set at Emily’s door. What do such portentous visitors want? Find out in “Visitors,” chapter 24 of Prophecies and Penalties.

Prophecies and Penalties is a weekly serial about an investigation of a murder at a religious commune that is spiraling out of control. If you haven’t been reading it before, you can start here.
