Tales From the Dark River


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.
