SIGNED, SLIPCASED, LIMITED EDITION. #59/448 copies. New, unread book in beautiful condition. Midnight Mass by F. Paul Wilson Artwork by Harry O. Morris About the Book: They make an unlikely fifth column: a disgraced priest, a bomb-making nun, a cross-wearing rabbi, and a lesbian atheist. But desperate times call for desperate alliances, and these are most certainly desperate times. You see, the undead have pretty much won. They've taken Europe, the Mid East, and most of Asia. They crossed the ocean and turned the US government. They've consolidated their hold on the East Coast and are honing their plans for the rest of the country. The survivors exist in fear and isolation, with no one to rally to. Until Father Joe Cahill decides to take back his old desecrated church and say mass again. Just once. Publisher's Note: This full-length novel is over 400 pages long and set in the same world as the F. Paul Wilson novella of the same title that was published by Pulphouse over a decade ago.
