Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has a lot of history—and a lot of ghosts. It was a key fort in Colonial days, and by the end of the 1800s, it had become the crucible of steam-driven manufacturing and invention. But with that growth came tragedy, and from that, plenty of ghosts. Mine disasters, accidents in factories and steel mills, bloody labor strikes and unlucky ships on the city’s three rivers all create the kind of history that lends itself to ghosts.
Pittsburgh was also a melting pot for immigrants who came from all over Europe for jobs in the mills—and brought their beliefs, superstitions, and magic with them. In the world of Storm and Fury, those newcomers were also followed by supernatural creatures, family secrets, and Old World curses.
Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich, agents for the secret Department of Supernatural Investigation, take care of paranormal problems. They’ve got all of the latest experimental gadgets the department’s genius inventors can dream up, and it’s their job to make sure that the things that go bump in the night get dealt with so that regular people can sleep peacefully, blissfully unaware of the secrets that lurk in the shadows.
