Dark Forces: The 25th Anniversary Edition
by Kirby McCauley
About the eBook:
In 1980, Kirby McCauley assembled a landmark horror anthology that set the benchmark for the genre. That book was Dark Forces, and while it has been imitated many times, it has never been matched.
Featuring stories from Stephen King, Robert Bloch, Ray Bradbury, Joyce Carol Oates, Ramsey Campbell, Charles L. Grant, Richard & Richard Christian Matheson, and over a dozen other masters of the genre, Dark Forces belongs in the collection of anyone who treasures works of classic horror and dark fantasy.
All of these stories are on the must-read list for any new horror fan, including Stephen King's classic novella The Mist, which was made into a major feature film by director Frank Darabont.
This special edition eBook features an afterword from editor Kirby McCauley and a bonus interview with McCauley conducted by Kealan Patrick Burke for the 25th Anniversary Special Edition published by Lonely Road Books.
