FOR THE NIGHT IS DARK




I'm honored to have a short story in For The Night Is Dark. I believe my story, Eternal Darkness, is one of my best. Joe Mynhardt at Crystal Lake Publishing did a great job compiling this fantastic collection.

I have no idea how long this will last, but the Kindle version of this tome is only .99. The paperback is priced to sell as well, only being $12.99 for a 425 page book.

This book with stories from twenty great authors would make a fantastic gift for the horror readers on your shopping list.

Book description:


 Darkness, our most primitive fear since shadows first moved.

The Dark is coming!

Call your friends. No one should wander through the dark alone.

You will be taken back into the past, down to the depths of the ocean and across the borderline between our world and the next. You will see snapshots from the lives of small children, old-time cockney gangsters and aimless stoners. You will journey into the darkest house on the darkest street, wander hospital basements and take a flight in the comfort of first class. You will meet Mr Stix.

This tome includes stories by G. N. Braun, Carole Johnstone, Armand Rosamilia, Daniel I. Russell, Scott Nicholson, Gary McMahon, Joe Mynhardt, Kevin Lucia, Tracie McBride, Stephen Bacon, Benedict J. Jones, Blaze McRob, John Claude Smith, Tonia Brown, Mark West, Robert W. Walker, Jeremy C. Shipp, Jasper Bark, William Meikle, and Ray Cluley.

Are you scared of the dark? You should be.

Review

"Wow. I'll repeat myself. Wow. This book was AMAZING." - Mass Movement Magazine

"... I highly recommend this anthology..." - Rena Mason, author of The Evolutionist

"FOR THE NIGHT IS DARK is a fantastic mix of horror in a variety of sub-genres. Ghosts, monsters, things of an unknown origin...there's plenty of terrifying aspects here, and something for every horror fan - Shattered Ravings

"... stories that encourages the reader to explore their own fear (or thrill) of the dark, and to perhaps take that second look when something darts out of darkness in the corner of their eye." - Sanitarium Magazine

Hold on to your weapon of choice, and pull those covers up tight! The fine folks over at Crystal Lake Publishing have unleashed a dark anthology that is sure to scare you. Chocked full of talented authors and unique tales, FOR THE NIGHT IS DARK is a horror collection that any fan of frightful fiction must own.

I have to confess that I had never heard of Crystal Lake Publishing prior to getting their e-mail. But I'm sure glad they reached out to me. If this anthology is any indication of the talent levels they publish, I'm definitely going to keep my eyes out for the other titles they release.

FOR THE NIGHT IS DARK is a fantastic mix of horror in a variety of sub-genres. Ghosts, monsters, things of an unknown origin...there's plenty of terrifying aspects here, and something for every horror fan.

Each story is written well, and each has its own, distinctive voice. Yet they all strive for the same goal: to scare the crap out of you. I admit freely that I enjoyed every story in this collection, which is not a common occurrence for me when it comes to anthologies. Sometimes, only a handful of stories stick out...but here, they all do.

One of my favorite tales in FOR THE NIGHT IS DARK is "Mr. Stix" by Mark West. In this story, a simple, crudely made puppet turns one family's existence into a nightmare. But all is not what it seems...

Another favorite is "Eternal Darkness" by Blaze McRob. This vivid tale describes a man's fight with his worst fear: the darkness. But the shadows in this pitch are not tricks of light...they are something far more sinister.

FOR THE NIGHT IS DARK is an excellent anthology, and I highly recommend giving it a look. Every fan of horror fiction must own a copy, so get yours today. The book is available now in a variety of formats.
