Within the eight stories in The Darkness Beneath All Things we meet seemingly ordinary people, yet each struggle to find a way through a personal darkness, each strives for a new way to see. His characters are immediately recognizable - or are they? A shy young construction worker defends himself against a violent attack on the job site - but does he really win? A novice pastor finds himself facing temptation - and a spirituality beyond the tenets of his textbooks. An elderly man lies injured and alone in the deadly heat while a vulture circles - a portent of death or a sign of hope?

"Eric Greenway's stories come from the rarely explored region of the human soul. People change and it is like a shifting of gears. Sometimes those around you have that gear, sometimes not, it's the way safe lives become tragic."
 – Fred Stenson
