They say that people go there when they're ready to die. They say Death himself is a patron. That's where the tavern gets its name. Azrael's Stop. Watering hole for the Angel of Death. Azrael's Stop is a YA fantasy story and experimental project about death and how we go on living.


Azrael's Stop began as an experimental Twitter fiction project and was originally published one day at a time over the course of a year. Now, it has been published as an ebook novella, and is accompanied by a full original soundtrack.
