"Four voices whisper in the night of the mirage of normality . . ."
"Christopher Golden weaves past, present and mythology into a remarkable tapestry where pride comes before humanity."
"The flesh remembers what the mind screams to deny."
Four horsemen of horror ride through cul-de-sacs, Valkyrie strongholds, the waiting room of hell, and a summer countryside. They herald the seven deadly sins and mark the course of evil. Four voices whisper in the night of the mirage of normality on Four Dark Nights.
In a little cul-de-sac, Helen and Tony battle a little boy leaving precious jewels in his wake while the rest of their close-knit community reaps the rewards of petitioning to destroy the cesspool in their midst. Bentley Little’s tale, The Circle, turns the suburbs into a battlefield where the lines between good and evil are blurred and no one survives.
Samantha Finnin’s father is dead. She has come back to town to say farewell and finds questions only her father can answer, if only she can bring him back. The Pyre gives new meaning to closure. Christopher Golden weaves past, present and mythology into a remarkable tapestry where pride comes before humanity.
A one-time child preacher, soaked in drugs, alcohol, and retribution, leads a band of carnival freaks into hell to find the demon that drove his father to rip his grandson from his mother’s care. Jonah Arose by Tom Piccirilli cruises the waters of every city’s underworld in the belly of hell where the forgotten beg for redemption or damnation.
To belong to something, even the Nowhere, is better than isolation and being ignored or discounted. Dash guides Mark through the Veil to a Cthulu-like world of ancient evil where all slights burn away in the change. Douglas Clegg engraves The Words on the hearts of two boys who intone the true name of the elder gods as they die. The flesh remembers what the mind screams to deny.
