Supernatural Noir

This collection of short stories has at least one for everyone.  The stories are varied, there are supernatural and paranormal stories, ironic stories, humorous stories, crime stories and more.  What's not to like?


Dark Horse Books, an imprint of Dark Horse Comics, provided an egalley on Net Galley that I downloaded for review (thank you both).  The book will be published at the end of June.


I don't know about you, but my favorite form of reading is short stories.  Authors can't wallow in detail or expand a character so much you get bored.  It's got to be succinct and tidy to get the point across in a limited number of words.  And each new story is a new adventure.  


This selection of stories comes from authors that have been writing for a long time:  Brian Evenson, Joe R Lansdale,  Caitlin R Kiernan, Nick Mamatas, Gregory Frost, Jeffrey Ford, and many more.


These stories are all dark, but they draw you in and you keep reading to see where the author is taking you.  If you collect short story analogies, here is a new one for you.  If you like reading fantasy, this book is for you.  Why not pick up a copy in June at your local bookstore?


Happy reading!
