"Dark Light" is the light that shines through when some of the finest writers in horror use the power of their dark words for a bright cause. That's the case with this anthology--42 writers coming together to help support the Ronald McDonald House Charities and the good the organization does for families year round.

Make no mistake, though. These are horror writers and the

This book is an amazing anthology, 44 short stories by 42 extremely talented authors. Some of the stories are scary; others are downright creepy, while some leave a note of sadness at the end. Have you ever been reading a scene in a book and felt a chill go down your spine? I did while reading this book. It’s as gruesome as the genre gets, with a strange, albeit twisted, undertone of hope. It highlights human nature in the good, the bad and the extreme throughout many different scenarios. If you ...more

It is a great collection of horror short stories. Some are psychological horror, dystopias, ghosts, murder, whatever terrifies a reader, there is a story for that. There is also a variety of writing styles. There are diary entries, first person narrative, the rare second person point of view, and the third person point of view. With 42 short stories to read, I only have time to showcase a few of them.

While I can't begin to imagine what this author went through during the time his beautiful daughter was born, I can feel some of his worry. I had a child born with cleft lip and palate, who basically starved for the first two months of his life, quickly loosing weight and becoming skin and bones after being born a healthy 8 lbs. 9 oz. When he had his first surgery done, the hospital opted for us to stay close to him in the Ronald McDonald House. We chose not to accept for there were people out ...more

It is so great to see all of these wonderful authors come together to support something great like the Ronald McDonald House; it is truly inspiring.

Carl Hose certainly did a wonderful job putting together this compilation of stories. I'm a huge fan of horror, but have recently been reading novels of other genres. I was so excited to start reading a horror story again, and Dark Light certainly revamped my enthusiasm for all things Horror. Being a collection of short stories, Dark Light was perfe

There are 44 stories in this book. What a value for only 6.99 and remember all the sales from the book help support Ronald McDonald House.

Reading this book took me over a week. This was a great book. I loved every story in it. However do not ask me to pick my favorite. That is not something I can honestly decide. The authors in this book created some wonderful short stories that rank with that great writer of horror. No, sorry I will not promote his name. He gets enough promotion. These writers

I am honored to be able to review this collection of horror short stories. Within the cover of this book everyone will find something to enjoy. It is a wonderful change of pace to read a short story when I have a few minutes and then be able to return to the book when I need another break in my day. I truly enjoyed sampling a multitude of horror authors and now I am able to go back and purchase additional books of my favorites. You will not go wrong with the purchase of this book, and the ...more

I really enjoyed this compilation. If you like the horror genre, you will probably enjoy this book full of short stories. There are some really good ones in here and to my delight there are a few dark humor stories sprinkled in. I like that Dark Light is packed full of short stories, this one will keep you reading for a while with over 500 pages, but it's nice since they are short stories, you can read just a few at a time if you want. I am really impressed that some many authors from this genre ...more
