Dark Arts Books has just unveiled its sixth horror/dark fantasy anthology, When The Night Comes Down. Following Dark Arts’ trademark format of offering multiple stories from four authors to show the range and breadth of their work, this time around the dark scribes featured are Joseph D’Lacey, Bev Vincent, Robert E. Weinberg and Nate Kenyon.
Joseph D’Lacey, author of the critically acclaimed novel Meat, writes in the vein of the Clive Barker of the 1980s in stories like “The Unwrapping of Alastair Perry” and “Introscopy.”
Bev Vincent, already renowned for his non-fiction, especially his books about Stephen King, shows off some impressive range in his fiction — from hard-edged horror (”Silvery Moon”) to Bradbury-esque whimsical (”Something in Store”) to knowing humor (”Knock ‘em Dead”).
Horror and Dark Fantasy legend Robert E. Weinberg delivers perhaps the all-time greatest behind-the-scenes send-up of genre convention weekends with “Elevator Girls.”
And rising young gun Nate Kenyon, in gritty stories like “Gravedigger” and “The Buzz of A Thousand Wings,” showcases why he has earned all those raves for his novels The Reach and The Bone Factory.
There are shapeshifters and gravediggers, but also supernatural private detectives and — perhaps most terrifying of all — beautiful creatures that prey on… horror writers. Murder, death — and things worse than death — are all waiting for you When The Night Comes Down.
Dark Arts Books will hold an official launch party for the 16-story anthology at the World Horror Convention this week in Brighton, England.
