Each autumn, among the falling leaves and the sounds of youth, they come to the university in their new clohtes, with their special hopes and special insecurities. They want each other' approval. They want love, and power. Stitch will give them all that they could ever want: an education of the soul.
Dan Latcher is a nerdy young college student until Stitch discovers him. Now Dan can work wonders and weave magic: Charismatic, he stands before a room full of adoring followers, turning his fingers into flames, immolating a fellow student before their eyes. Is it hallucination, or truth?
Through Dan they shed their old lives and pass into a world of darkness. Through Dan, they take joy in acts of bloody self-mutilation, share rapt visions of death and pain and ecstasy. For Dan has blessed them with his charisma, taught them to sate the hunger of their weaknesses, and to dicover the kingdom and the poser and the glory of...Stitch.
