Dark Magic is a collection of over two hundred bite-size drabbles of dark fantasy and horror.
Enter a world of curses and creatures, the hideous and the hexed, where love is cruel and victory is tainted. Where gods and demons hold sway over mortals, senses are enticed and spirits ensnared. Angels fall, dragons rise, shadows hide secrets and power comes from blood and bone and death itself.
Original tales about the other, moodier season of change
Some of the short stories and poems in Autumn Noir unfold as gently as a wisp of chimney smoke. Others bring the heart-thumping thrills of an end-of-summer storm. All feature characters as vibrant as fall foliage and dialogue as crisp as autumn air. Join the down (but maybe not quite out), the struggling, the wicked, the forlorn, and the broken-hearted as they stumble and sometimes fall all the way down. To paraphrase Bette Davis, “Fasten your seatbelts. It’s going to be a bumpy read.”REVIEWS
"Some stories leave you hanging and gasping for more, some make you chuckle at the clever wickedness of seemingly innocent sneaky characters, some leave you shocked over twists at the end. All are worth reading. Autumn Noir: An Unsettling Reads Anthology is the perfect book for a cold night before a blazing fire."
— Kathleen Kaska, author of the award-winning Sydney Lockhart Mystery Series
"Autumn Noir contains stories that get under your skin... an exciting collection of stories, some will make you smile, others will send a chill down your spine, and others will keep you guessing the outcome. I loved it!"
— Kathryn Lane, award-winning author of the Nikki Garcia Thriller Series

Unravel their message. Translate their meaning. Your life may just depend on it…
The world has its messengers, its harbingers of bad tidings. Some call them premonitions, others call them superstitions, all we know for certain is that in the cracks between the layers of our reality the truth is known. Warnings come in a strange array of mediums; from circling ravens, to withering crops, to nightmarish late-night visitors, and it is up to us to hear the messages they bear on their tongues…
In this horror anthology, eleven talented authors explore the prophetic nature of dark omens. Featuring tales of demonic possession, prophetic storms, nocturnal insect clouds, small-town cover-ups, and breaking skies, “The Omens Call” will open your eyes to the primal languages that humans dare not speak.
Dare you heed the omen’s call?

Stories featuring artists, crafters, DIYers, and more.
The writers in this anthology came up with creative takes on the theme. There are twenty-one stories in this book, including several flash fiction pieces. Some are horror-light, some are more devious and dark. There is even a touch of the gross-out, and a hint of humour in certain tales found here.
From quiet horrors to chilling nightmares these tales give new meaning to being creative.
Here you’ll find cursed rock stars, demonic records, and deadly one-hit wonders. Wherever possible, we’ve listed the song inspiration along with the story, so you can sing along to your heart’s content.
Just be warned: you’ll never listen to these songs the same way again.
