June, 1944, Lieutenant Adam Richelieu of the Canadian 5th Commandos is being ferried high above the English channel in the belly of a Whitworth Albermarle with two dozen of his best men. However, before they can reach the drop zone, flak rips through the belly of the aircraft and the lieutenant survives the drop with fewer men than he can count on his fingers.
Unrelenting, he carries on to meet his French Resistance contacts at the tiny village of Ange-Gardien, only to find the hamlet mysteriously deserted, save for an old flame and and a strange infestation more dangerous and horrifying than the local SS garrison.
My dark horror meets sci-fi WWII novelette, “Archangel” details that fateful night for a handful of Canadian servicemen fighting their own strange battle against stranger foes in the Normandy countryside. It will be appearing later this year in the collection called War by the always wonderful Black Hare Press.
