“Stories that are short, sharp shocks designed to unsettle you.”
In shadowy back alleys, crumbling brownstones, and gleaming skyscrapers, cities harbor unique forms of terror. Here lie malicious ghosts, cursed buildings, malignant deities, and personal demons of every kind.
Twenty of today’s most talented writers bend their skills toward the darkness, creating brand-new tales guaranteed to keep you awake at night – especially if you live in the dark cities.
Far worse than mythical creatures such as vampires and werewolves, these are horrors that lurk in the places you go every day – where you would never expect to find them. But they are there, and now that you know, you’ll never again walk the streets alone.
Why We’re Excited About This Book:
Stephen King once described his short stories as ‘a kiss in the dark from a stranger’ and in that quote lies the appeal of horror anthologies. Stories that are short, sharp shocks designed to unsettle you in a frantic sprint rather than the usual marathon form of the novel. Christopher Golden has put together a number of horror anthologies, so knows what an audience likes, and with the likes of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Sherrie Priest, Jonathan Maberry and genre legend Joe R Lansdale on board, this is one anthology that we can’t wait to pucker up for.
Dark Cities is out on 16 May 2017 and is available from Amazon.
