Credo accepted for Anthology

Horror
My short story Credo has been accepted for Light at the Edge of Darkness, coming in March 2007.
*****

“Please forgive my intrusion,” the priest said as he sat down beside Martin’s friend. “I am Father Joseph, and I must get to the harbor. It really is a matter of life or death.”

“We aren’t going to New York harbor,” Jaeger snapped as the driver whipped up the horses.

“Neither am I,” Father Joseph stated quietly. “I know where you both are bound.”

“There are other carriages,” Jaeger replied, and Martin thought he detected some fear in his voice. “Indeed, we should have had our own, but the axle broke not long before we left. Stupid luck.”

“Perhaps it was an act of God,” the priest remarked pleasantly. He added some other comment under his breath—Martin could only make out that it was in Latin—and Jaeger fell silent. In fact, if Martin had been the superstitious type, he would have thought the genial cleric had cast a spell of some kind. Of course, Martin was not the superstitious type. Yet there was something peculiar about Todd’s face, which seemed frozen in a mask of rage...
***
Martin turned to face his former friend, and he found he could actually look him in what should have been his eyes. The creature faltered briefly, then cried defiantly, “So be it! Can you find your faith before my sword finds its mark?”

Martin watched as the thing brought its sword back for a two-handed downward slash.
