Slander Hall

4.5  ·  Rating Details ·  12 Ratings  ·  5 Reviews
Fifteen years ago the affluent gated-community of Slander Hall was the setting of the largest mass suicide in U.S history, dozens of men and women committing the ultimate sacrifice and embracing the covenant of their leader to shed their bodies for a life in outer space.

In Slander Hall, five people visit a modern day ghost town in the suburbs of Pheonix. Some in search of answers, some closure and some looking to make a buck documenting what they find.

Dropping directly into the meat of the novella, Matthew Tait wastes no time bringing his readers completely up to speed within a few paragraphs.

'Slander Hall' touches upon a taboo subject for most people - mass suicide to achieve a higher power. Cedar Jarrell, one of the sole survivors of Slander Hall's Soul ...more
