So, what did you think about our inaugural anthology, Stories We Tell After Midnight? Pretty spooky, eh? Well, guess what?
Yes, that’s right! Stories We Tell After Midnight, Volume 2, our third full-length anthology of horror and dark fiction, will be available October 1, 2020. Read on to learn more!
As a deadly scourge overwhelms the continent, four survivors race to find a last exit out of Australia.
Up in the attic, a bedtime story outlives its storyteller.
A city boy visits his country cousins and stumbles on a terrifying family secret.
From a film set in the Arizona desert, to an overgrown rambling old house in the Florida swamps, to the dusty streets of a small Mexican town, the stories in this volume plunge the reader into the shadows of a world almost forgotten by modern fables of cold science and bright sunlight. They are the brushed over voices who call a warning to those who would comfort themselves in the thought that monsters aren’t real, and those things can’t happen here. Stories We Tell After Midnight Volume 2 offers up tales of revenge, of hunger, and of the horror that stalks you just beyond the glow of your cell phone light, but only to those who dare turn the page…
