"With Under Her Black Wings, Kandisha Press has put together a collection of stories that touch upon a wide variety of subjects and give glimpses of horror from all over the world. The collection serves as a wonderful introduction to a lot of authors that I had not been acquainted with before, and also contains a few tales from some familiar faces. Among the familiar faces, The Sisters of Slaughter present Desert Kisses, a tale of revenge that reminds us that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Somer Canon delivers one of the most fun stories we come across with The Riddled Path. It's simultaneously hilarious and horrifying...There were so many new to me authors that caught my attention....If you are looking to adorn your shelves with some accomplished ladies of horror fiction, Under Her Black Wings is an appropriately worthy gateway." - Brennan LaFaro, DeadHead Reviews (abridged)

- extreme fear.
It lurks in the night, around you, it chokes you when your mind roams. Terror is hearing footsteps when you’re alone in your home, terror is hearing noises in the darkness, seeing shadows move when everything is still.
What are you afraid of? Nothing. Everything. It could be your friend or neighbor, it could be a stranger. It could be something far more sinister. Terror reminds you that you are alive.
Step into the twilight zone and let these masters of terror whisper into your ear.
Come along as these tales open up 19 gates into hell and experience the supernatural, the darkness of night, and the unimaginable like never before. Authors such as Byron Craft, Matthew V. Brockmeyer, Rich Restucci and many more have come together to show you in. . .and they won't let you leave until you're crying out for mercy, begging to live to see one last sunset.
What are you waiting for? The gates are opening.
Zuerst verbarrikadieren sich die Eheleute Harmony und Dan in ihrem Haus, doch schnell wird ihnen klar, dass sie sich in einen gnadenlosen Wettlauf um das Leben ihrer Lieben stürzen müssen. Die Infizierten sind überall, und es gilt, ihnen immer einen Schritt voraus zu sein.
In einer Welt, die sich rapide verändert hat, gelten über Nacht andere Gesetze, und der tödliche Virus macht keinen Unterschied zwischen guten und schlechten Menschen. Ist auch ihr Schicksal bereits längst besiegelt?
