Dark New Orleans

A collection of stories by

Discover Dark New Orleans in our new collection of gripping, nerve-tingling short stories written by award-winning and international bestselling authors!

Let us take you on a journey to the dark side of the incredible place that is New Orleans.

We follow a shameless gang of middle-aged influencers, who go on a cryptozoology expedition in search of the mythical Rougarou, but they stumble upon much more than they expected.

Next, Nelle’s quick getaway to the French Quarter in New Orleans for some jazz, street art and a plateful of their Gulf oysters rapidly devolves into another kind of trip altogether: a nightmarish one. She must tangle with new demons in order to let go of old ones…but can she?

Then, the new economy meets the old as a software developer travels to New Orleans, but he has trouble connecting with the locals.

It’s been twelve months since Pam went missing. Lucy can’t understand why the police have made no progress in finding her friend. People don’t just disappear into thin air, do they?

Next, we meet a man with a grievance who plans the perfect murder…

Once a successful international DJ, David Grant arrives in New Orleans looking for a comeback. An unexpected and unlikely encounter tests his faith and leaves him questioning everything.

And we meet Sister Elizabeth, an ordinary nun–until frightful dreams and the whispering voice of a persistent Angel shattered any hope of a normal life. Now, death and madness are constant companions along with a strange warning of dire things to come. Either the good Sister has gone mad…or the world really is about to end.

Tread the boards when a visit to ‘The Dressing Up Box’& for a last-minute carnival costume ensures the Mardi Gras celebrations at the Vaudeville Arcade Theatre will be remembered for a very, very long time.

And finally, forced to move to New Orleans for his father’s work, Josiah comes to believe he is living in a haunted house. An hallucination in the French Quarter leads him to a Voodoo shop where he learns what – or who – has been really haunting him.

We hope you discovered a new side of New Orleans in this collection of nine thrilling and spine-tingling tales!
