We’re proud to announce the release of our new E-book series titled “Tales of Darkness and Dismay”. This highly anticipated collection of novellas and short story compilations by twelve up-and-coming authors is available for immediate download via Amazon.
And the line-up is -
“Blood and Fire”, a paranormal/vampire thriller by Carrie Clevenger and Nerine Dorman. This novella gives readers a taste of what to expect from Nerine’s novel “Inkarna”, due out from Dark Continents in the first half of 2012.
“A Gentle Hell”, a collection of achingly surreal supernatural stories by Autumn Christian.
“Through a Forest Dark”, a gathering of short stories inspired by the layers of hell from within Dante’s Inferno by Dean M. Drinkel. Dean is also the editor of Dark Continent’s recent horror anthology “Phobophobia.”
“Beatrice Beecham’s Houseful of Horrors”, a young adult favorite; this is the third book in the Beatrice Beecham series by Dave Jeffery. Dark Continents recently launched his short story collection “Campfire Chillers” at British Fantasy Con in Brighton. His zombie novel “Necropolis Rising” is another must-read.
“Along the Splintered Path”, a collection of disturbing stories that explore the dark side of life in the remote countryside by A.J. Brown.
“Were-wolves, Apocalypses, and Genetic Mutation, Oh My!” is the satirical yet satisfyingly horrific group of stories that detail the end of the world, told by the master of dark humor Suzanne Robb.
“Critique”, a true horror novella detailing the downfall of a food critic star as he is driven mad by an appetite he can no longer control, written by Daniel I. Russell. Look out for Dan’s novel “The Collector” out in early 2012 (yes, we’re publishing that too).
“April Fool and other Antipodean horror stories”. What is the definition of antipodean, you ask? Any two places or regions that are on diametrically opposite sides of the earth – the perfect definition to match the two seasoned horror authors of Tracie McBride (from Australia) and John Irvine (from New Zealand). If this collection whets your appetite for Southern Hemisphere horror, then you will also be interested in Tracie’s collection “Ghosts Can Bleed” and John’s “Blood Curry”.
“Slander Hall”, an elegant sci fi/horror novella inspired by the Jonestown suicides by Australian author Matthew Tait.
“The Drunk and the Dead”, a collection of stories that takes an affectionate and humorous yet still frightening look at some our most beloved monsters, by Andy Taylor.
