Night Visions 12(2006)
(Book 12 in the Night Visions series)
An anthology of stories edited by Kealan Patrick Burke
For nearly two decades, the Night Visions anthologies have provided a form for some of the finest dark fantasists of the modern era. Subterranean Press proudly continues the tradition with the twelfth installment of this landmark series. Simon Clark A screenwriter's marshland retreat becomes a place of unutterable terror in "My God, My God," a gleefully wicked homage to the works of William Hope Hodgson. An experiment in lucid dreaming leads a man into a sinking house where he encounters the titular trio of famous literary figures, and something much worse, in "Poe, Lovecraft, Jackson." The concept of humankind as the true evil rises to the fore in "Frankenstein, Victor," an alternate world sequel to Mary Shelley's seminal classic. Mark Morris "Feeding Frenzy" follow the surreal and nightmarish journey of an average bookstore employee in the wake of a series of murders seemingly inspired by pulp-horror novels. The Rod Serling-esque setup of a man awaking to find himself alone in a town takes a hellish and horrifying turn in "What Nature Abhors." In "The Story of April and Her Colours," a unique boy finds himself embroiled in an equally unique situation when he meets a woman with lights beneath her skin. P. D. Cacek An egotistical psychotherapist falls for his patient -- a woman with five other personalities, all of whom are very much aware of each other, and quite possibly a secret sixth -- in the chilling supernatural thriller "Forced Perspective." "Campfire Story" is the tale of one dark summer, and the haunted well from which horror springs eternal... These are the tellers, dear reader, and here are their tales, submitted for your approval on this darkest of nights...
