Product Description

2014 Bram Stoker Awards® Nominee for Superior Achievement in an Anthology.  

 

"This is one of those few anthologies that captures the pulse of its time... I can easily imagine new generations of readers opening A Darke Phantastique: Encounters with the Uncanny and Other Magical Things, becoming entranced initially by the artistry of the book, then progressing into the stories themselves and discovering new ways of looking at a new century of darkness… and new tales to explore it."

 --Dr. Michael R. Collings (from his review

 

 

"If you've been waiting for a brick-sized anthology of fresh horror, SF, fantasy, and magical realism, you're in luck. [A] solid collection..."

 --Rue Morgue Magazine 

 

 "The excellence of this important contribution to genre literature CANNOT be overstated... A masterwork."

--William F. Nolan (contributor, and author of Logan's Run)
