Pictures of the Dark

(2009)
A collection of stories by

 
 
There are dark places everywhere. The world outside your front door, and the one inside your head. Dreads and longings. Pasts and futures. Loneliness and relationships. Love and hate. Life and death . . . and what might lie beyond. And then there's the place the stories come from. The council estate where the dead walk . . . The farmhouse attic filled with mummified corpses . . . The old tramp's blanket, and what slept in it at night . . . Here, collected for the first time, are Simon Bestwick's pictures of the dark - 23 despatches from a world very like ours, but where those dark places take on a life of their own. The damaged and forlorn men and women in these stories pit themselves against their own demons or worlds gone mad, uncover the rot at society's core or in their own souls - but they're all caught by the dark. And nobody gets away clean. Will you? Open the book and find out.
