From In the Shadow of Abaddon, author Daniel R. Dow uncovers his new publication, “ABADDON And The Space Between Eternities.” This fictional tale gives readers a glimpse into the world of prison where men and women who succumbed to their sins struggle to find the space and the means by which to develop and preserve their human potential. It tells the story of forgiveness, acceptance and redemption.

In Abaddon, there is a man called Sylvester who has a dark and painful past. He mourned the loss of his wife and the daughter he never knew. It seems that there is no longer hope for him. He made a lot of poor choices in his life, and it is too late to change them. Then there is Steve. He is a new arrival in the prison. The only important people in his life are his wife and daughter. Their monthly visit is precious and he makes the most of it. Everything would have been normal had he not become involved in the evil scheme of one vindictive man.

Al is young but he had gone through too much in life. He has a tortured soul and it seemed it can no longer be saved. He does not care about anyone else but himself. Ike’s life is made out of lies. He is afraid that if the truth comes out, his world will crumble to the ground. He has a sinister desire to witness violence and cruelty. He instigates a brutal murder that will make him pay in time. At one point, their lives intertwined. They will have to choose, and these choices will decide their fate. Is there still hope for these men?

Dow’s compelling work provides a unique perspective and presentation of a prisoner’s story based on his own real-life experience. “ABADDON And The Space Between Eternities” lets readers gain a better understanding of prison life and how to survive more than the simple act of breathing and eating.
