The Cabal of Thotash has languished for years within their poorly-ventilated Manhattan lair. All of their rituals to summon an ancient malice and help it unmake reality have accomplished little beyond annoying the upstairs neighbor. When a charismatic sacrifice talks her way off the dark altar and into a leadership position, the Cabal’s fortunes turn around, as do their ideas about what it means to serve the greater evil.
Is it a cult or a group of confused worshipers of evil that has not been found?
When a failed sacrifice becomes the next leader of the wannabe cult (a cult that sounds more like a Duncan Hines cookbook discussion) things change for the worse and the cult becomes that of the past.
The ending leaves a mystery to readers and I'm not sure I even caught on. Had a few laughs, weak character description, and quirky dialogue. I just think more should be added to this short story.
