Well, lookee here!
My postman just can’t stop bringing me treats at the moment. This time he’s delivered my contributor’s copy of Dark Lane Anthology Volume 10, a selection box of horrid delights.
The volume contains 22 short stories, including “The Objective”, my strange little tale about… hmm, well, I’ll let you figure that out for yourself.
To mark the milestone 10th volume, editor Tim Jeffreys also invited contributors to write short discussion pieces in response to a couple of classic tales. My piece is about Laird Barron’s “The Forest”. But it kind of ended up being a sort of manifesto for my Buddhist horror project as well.
Anyhoo, here’s the back jacket blurb:
Dark Lane Books brings you its landmark tenth edition of horror and dark fantasy tales. Whether taking place in deep space, in far-off fantasy words, on the stormy seas, high on a mountain in a foreign land, or in a neighbour’s backyard, prepare for twenty-two encounters with the bizarre and unusual. Full to bursting with enough finely crafted stories to counterbalance the wild, imaginative tales from the hinterlands of dream, you must be careful as you close the covers of Dark Lane Anthology Volume 10 not to crush the overflow of creatures running from its pages.
Take a peek behind the veil.
