New Moon on The WaterDark Regions Press has announced the release of Mort Castle’s collection, New Moon on The Water.

Description: In a smoky, after hours jazz joint where almost nobody ever dies, or the ranch house next door owned by a monster, or a high rise elevator in which raging terror awaits the next passenger, these brilliant stories discover a world you thought you knew – and a darker one you will never forget. With 13 stories never before collected, New Moon On The Water is Mort Castle’s first new collection in a decade, presenting the best short fiction of the writer deemed a “horror doyen,” “the Charles Dickens of horror,” and “the master of contemporary horror.”
