Afterword – David A. Sutton Appendix: Index to Dark Terrors
Those of you with keen eyesight and fast reflexes will have noticed a slight title change for this book: from Darkest Terrors to Darker Terrors. Why? Simple: should this one prove popular then it gives us room for manoeuvre to bring out a companion volume. In the meantime, you can now pre-order the paperback edition of this fine anthology, which will feature stories from Neil Gaiman, Harlan Ellison, Ray Bradbury, Dennis Etchison, Poppy Z. Brite, and Michael Marshall Smith, amongst many others.
The limited hardback is still available too, and you can preorder that one below as well. This one will be signed by Stephen Jones and David A. Sutton (editors), and Les Edwards (cover artist). Both editions will feature an index to ALL the stories published in the six volumes of Dark Terrors. Both editions will be published at Halloween this year.
