By Mark Morris
Darkness Beckons Anthology by Mark Morris digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

An incredible fourth book in the horror anthology series which Booklist called "Highly recommended for longstanding horror fans and those readers who may not think horror is for them. There is something for everyone in this one."

Darkness Beckons is the fourth volume in the non-themed horror series of entirely original stories, showcasing the very best short fiction that the genre has to offer, and edited by Mark Morris. This new anthology contains 20 original horror stories, 16 of which have been commissioned from some of the top names in the genre, and 4 of which have been selected from the 100s of stories sent to Flame Tree during a 2-week open submissions window. A terrifying cocktail of the familiar and the new, the established and the emerging.

Previous titles in the series, all still in print are After Sundown, Beyond the Veil and Close to Midnight.

“Darkness Beckons by Mark Morris is a horror short anthology which brings to you some creepy tales from the dark. I have already read many books by Mark Morris, so had high hopes for the book. The stories are not which are going to give you jump scares but they are basically silent horror. The book slowly engulfs you in the darkness. Some of the stories lacked the charm, but all the others were good. Also, the stories are by some of the famous horror authors. The characters have been portrayed dark and secretive to boost the plot. The book is a perfect read for the Halloween. The book deserves 4 stars. Thanks to Netgalley for providing me with an opportunity to read and review the book. Read more on https://bibliophileverse.blogspot.com/2023/10/darkness-beckons-mark-morris-horror.html”
