Dunwich Horror, The$7.00 – $12.00 Select options$7.00 – $12.00
Ah, the sweet, sweet singing of the whip-poor-wills. Surely one of the most innocent, purest birdsongs one can know, plaintive and perfect in the clean morning light.
Unless, of course, you happen to live near the decayed New England village of Dunwich. Unless, of course, you have seen the mad fires blazing from the ancient stone circles atop Sentinel Mountain. Unless, of course, you remember the horrible events of seventy years ago and happen to be familiar with the name “Whately.”
Then the singing of whip-poor-wills isn’t so sweet and their patient waiting anything but innocent…
Hoyden, The$5.00 – $10.00 Select options$5.00 – $10.00
Impetuous Lady Martha and her sister, Lady Julia, are shy country girls, come to London to be presented to Society by their Aunt Maybelle, the Duchess — and, if the Duchess has her way, to marry well. However, the plain-spoken sisters are ill-prepared to cope with the circumspectly courteous demands of city life and High Society.
Will Lady Martha survive her encounter with Lord Peter Thornham with her reputation intact, or will his rakish reputation soil another family’s good name?
Can quiet Lady Julia rescue her sister from the fate that awaits her, with the aid of the foppish Lord Edward Toffington? Will the London social scene ever be the same? Will the Duchess?
After all, once one’s reputation is already in tatters, one may do and say as one thinks…
Invisible Man, The$5.00 – $10.00 Select options$5.00 – $10.00
The small English town of Iping is just a waystation on the main road to Port Braddock. Nothing ever happens in Iping. Not in the dead of winter with the snow thick and crisp on the ground. Not with the wind howling and the ice crunching underfoot. Not until the Stranger came with his thick dark glasses and his head wrapped in bandages. Not until the Invisible Man arrived.
H G Wells’ The Invisible Man is one of the true classics of science fiction, as frightening and fresh now as it was when it was first written. For there is terror in doors that open with no one behind them, in footsteps in empty halls, in a touch in an empty room. And for Griffin, the Invisible Man, in the discovery of what it is to be both powerful — and powerless.

Menace From Earth, The$5.00 – $10.00 Select options$5.00 – $10.00

Even on the Moon.
Holly Jones, fifteen, born and raised on Luna, has her course plotted–she’s going into spaceship design with her partner Jeff Hardesty (“I am not romantic about him, we’re simply partners”).

Rats in the Walls, The$8.00 – $12.00 Select options$8.00 – $12.00
Delapore. A name with a history. A history of unspeakable atrocity; a history of black arts; a history of hatred, and terror.
Delapore. It’s just a name, now. In this case, it is the name of a man returning to England to reclaim the lands of his family. The name of a man who knows the skeletons in his family’s closet — or so he thinks.
Delapore. Surely it is possible to outlive the past. Surely it is possible to outrun one’s ancestors, to outrun history — to outrun fate. Surely a man’s destiny lies in his own hands, and not in the misdeeds of men a hundred generations dead.
Beware, England. The last Delapore has come home.

Tales From the Dark River$5.00 – $10.00 Select options$5.00 – $10.00
There is a river that flows through the misty landscape of imagination, seeping up through the rocky earth high in the Appalachian Mountains. It winds southward through the foothills and the piedmont: It tumbles past the fall line, widens and deepens, and then meanders across the coastal plain until it finally reaches the gulf of Mexico.
And all along its length the great river inspires stories to tease listeners into wonder, or send a shiver down their spines.
These are the tales from the Dark River.
For the first time, hear original stories created by Dark River Writers, Atlanta’s professional association of fantasy, horror, science fiction and mystery authors.
This collection is lovingly dedicated to the memory of Thomas E. Fuller, a longtime member of the group, and the one who gave us our name.
