Publisher's Summary

The supernatural, the surreal, and the all-too real...tales of the dark. 

Such stories have always fascinated us, and modern authors carry on the disquieting traditions of the past while inventing imaginative new ways to unsettle us. Chosen from a wide variety of venues, these stories are as eclectic and varied as shadows. 

Contains mature themes.

How is this considered horror?

Could barely finish this collection. Not sure how self esteem and social anxiety issues equal dark fantasy?

Highly misleading cover title and description

First book I could not finish on audible ever, stories have little to no connection to horror or dark or even fantasy and I slogged through 4 and a half hours of this, only truth given of this book and u did not heed the warning of the author that felt in quote "horror is not escapism" so decides to punish you the listener with boring tales of anxiety that lead to no build up of terror or pay off short stories or not. Waste of time and a credit; I just wish I could get back my time that went into listening as far as I did so I could at least hear a better book to enjoy for escapism as intended, if I wanted non escapism I would have searched for it in NON FICTION NOT DARK FANTASY shame on whomever thought this combination of stories equaled up to 14 hours of dark fantasy and horror, SHAME!; good narrator though only good part of this as a whole
