The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin--drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It's the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense of any blood-thirsty monster.The best way to tell the truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice.The stories inside feature the insidious nature of addiction told with compassion yet searing honesty. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths, and some of the most incredible names in horror fiction have tackled this modern day epidemic.

What are those melancholic little whispers Krista hears in the middle of the night?

Twenty-five years ago, Noah Berkley's childhood was stolen from him.
Twenty-five years ago, he lost the first and only love of his life.
Twenty-five years ago, someone died at his hand.
Only now, after all these years and spurred by the death of his father, does Noah Berkley believe he can face the memories he buried in the winter of 1984.
But sometimes memories aren't the only things we recover when we reopen the wounds of the past...
1. A thing with the potential to kill men.
2. A dead branch caught precariously high in a tree which may fall on a person below.
3. A dark fiction anthology of prodigious size; large enough to use as a doorstop... or crush a man's skull.

Growing up, the Grant brothers were close, but as they reached adolescence they drifted apart, taking opposite paths into adulthood. Straight-laced Jason works for a small-town newspaper. Marcus is into drugs, violence, and self-destruction. When Marcus finds salvation and sobriety after joining the Arkadium, he reaches out to his brother, wanting him by his side to record the new prehistoric era—the Arkadium's era.
Jason faces a choice: join his brother in the destruction of humanity, or die like one of the millions of innocents who will fall in the Arkadium's ascent.
