But young Zachary and his beautiful stripper pal, Tiffany, know what lurks beneath the cul-de-sac called Diamond Loop, and they know of others who had discovered the Wogslȗk many years earlier in a small New Mexico town.
They know how it ended for them.
Now the Wogslȗk have returned. They’re stronger, they’re smarter, and they’re determined to get inside your head.
Sing if you must. It may seem your last chance.
But it won’t help...
An Urban Legend takes many shapes and forms. From the peculiar glance of a neighbor’s dog, the weird face you see in the food on your dinner plate, or even the shadowy figure on the side of the road, an urban legends plays upon those instances of wonder and mixes them with fear. Within Urban Legends: Emergence of Fear, there are 14 stories, some similar and some very different, each touching a varied aspect of the urban legend theme. Seemingly harmless at first read, their terrors are destined to materialize when least expected, at the sound of a creaking door, while driving down the highway, or when leaving a bar in the dead of night.
And monsters into men.
What would you do for love?
Self-sacrifice, of course...
But what about literal sacrifice?
Would you kill for the right person?
Would you kill again…and again…and again?
What if you could come back from the dead to protect your loved ones?
Or never die in the first place?
Would you cross the ocean? The world?
What about the universe? Or reality itself?
Would you enlist a demon to avenge your brother?
Or seduce a serial killer to save your sister?
Would you live an eternity of lifetimes with your soulmate?
Even if he was a monster?
A family of necromancers determined to preserve their way of life at all costs…
A tragic spirit whose rage burns across centuries…
Parents who go to reality-defying lengths to save their children…
Legendary monsters resurrected to avenge the forgotten…
Guardians of the ancient world who kill to protect their wards…
Jealous lovers who let nothing stand in their way…
Come and meet these monsters, and the things they do for love.

In life, we draw many lines — between good and evil, guilt and innocence, real and unreal, life and death.
And having drawn these lines, we cross them because humanity is curious, careless, devious, and, sometimes, downright wicked.
So what happens if you cross the line? Does it change you and what is waiting on the other side?
In Ink Stains, Volume 6, ten authors explore what it means to cross the line and the price we pay to do it.
This collection of short stories range from fantasy through science fiction to horror and from the fantastical to the grit of day-to-day life.
Join writers Monica Carter, George Kelly, Alison Garsha, Ken Goldman, Elana Gomel, Christopher Locke, Morrison, Thomas Olbert, Evan Purcell, and Nicole Tanquary as they step over the line to find what waits on the other side.
Praise for Ink Stains
"Wow! This anthology of Dark Fiction really packs a punch! Ten strong stories without a dud in the bunch. This is my first brush with Dark Alley Press and I sure hope it won’t be the last because they are bringing some serious talent to the table. "
Brian James Lewis, Hellnotes.com
Ink Stains, a quarterly dark fiction and horror anthology published by Dark Alley Press, is about shining a stark light on the shadows of life, exploring those dimly lit corridors, and unearthing those long-buried secrets.
We don’t believe good will always triumph over evil or that someone will always be around to save the day.
Sometimes all we have is ourselves. And the stories that keep us turning the page.
Here are tales by some of the best suspense/thriller writers today, including F. Paul Wilson, Ken Bruen, J. Carson Black, Billie Sue Mosiman, Laura DiSilverio, and 18 others. The stories range from historical fiction to science fiction to political thriller—there’s even an alternate history story in the mix.

From the micro to the macro in terms of expirations, we are faced with the one termination with which we are all too familiar— the up-close-and-personal end of life for each of us and for the ones we love. It’s the personal that terrifies us most because it feels the most real.
Nancy Kilpatrick has gathered together twenty-five original stories by Kelley Armstrong; Nancy Holder & Erin Underwood; Steve and Melanie Tem; Lois Gresh; Gar and Judy Reeves-Stevens; Daniel Sernine; Paul Kane; Sephera Giron; Kathryn Ptacek; Steve Vernon and others to look at the what-if’s of our expiring future.
These stories span a range of emotions. Some will make you laugh, other will make you cry. They are grim and hopeful, sad and joyous, horrifying and comforting. You can expect to be touched in some way.
Each of us comes with an alpha and an omega stamp, an inception and an expiration date. Knowing this is what allows us to focus on what is truly important: paying attention to our best-before date and treating ourselves, each other and life in general with kindness, understanding, respect, and experiencing the awe of the miracle that we are, at this very moment, alive!
