Shadows twist over our night terrors, bringing with them more tales of haunted pasts, hidden futures, broken promises, and the blood necessary to hold it all together.
Where a plot of land seeks to have its grisly appetite sated in return for rich rewards. Where a faceless man stands watching helplessly as the lives of those around him slip past through the years, ever-repeating, always connected yet separate. And where a pair of boys come face to face with the dark secrets of their sleepy seaside town, their own initiation rite now unavoidable.
Light the candles and say your prayers, this night may just smother you. Or keep your eyes wide open, for it might be your own salvation from these distorted static dreams.
Nine dark short stories from authors Patrick Walts, Christopher Allen Waldrop, Mark Towse, River Dixon & tara caribou, Mark Ryan, Bobby Blade, M. Ennenbach, Sam Kirk, and Chris Nelson.
