Someday I am going to make a list of Anthology books that are must-reads for those who really don't like anthologies.

I am one of those readers who do not usually like anthologies, but this would be on the list of those that I do like, and very much so.

For one, there is a unifying factor here that isn't always present, part of it being the definite quality of the stories. From the intro which sets the stage and hits a nice tone, to the artwork that ties it all together, this anthology was a stri

Consisting of fifteen stories, four poems, and a bounty of darkly evocative illustrations (full color in the eBook version), Darkness Ad Infinitum is the first horror anthology from Villipede Publications.

Founded in 2011, Villipede is a publisher for which written art and visual art have always been strongly intertwined. On a purely physical level, DAI is a pleasure to behold. With its dark and tattered aesthetic accentuated by a splash of crimson, the cover by Wednesday Wolf sets the tone. Afte

DARKNESS AD INFINITUM, the debut horror anthology from Villipede Publications, is a finely balanced blend of horror fiction, poetry, and art. The goal here is clearly horror as an art form, and the anthology accomplishes that goal exceedingly well. This is horror and dark speculative fiction of the highest caliber.

As a publisher of horror/suspense fiction myself (Smart Rhino Publications), I can fully appreciate the amount of talent and effort behind a project like this--and the love for the art

I can finally state with utmost certainty that I have officially read the best horror anthology of 2014 thus far: DARKNESS AD INFINITUM, the first horror anthology from Villipede Publications. This collection of masterfully crafted tales will keep you up at night, trembling under your covers as you pray for daylight. I can’t remember the last time I enjoyed every single story this much in a single anthology; I even reread a couple of them just for fun after I had finished the book! That is a tru ...more

I loved the short story by Pete Clark! ;) It was gripping, creative and totally gave me goosebumps!

As with most anthologies, some stories/poems are very strong, some are just ok, and a few (particularly the last one) are weak. Interestingly, the strongest stories are frontloaded in the collection, so the overall arc of the collection loses momentum as the reader progresses.

I see good comments about the artwork; however, since I received this as an ARC on my Kindle, I could only evaluate the prose - Kindle images on my Paperwhite aren't anything to look at. I'm sure the art enhances the print

I like all 19 horror short stories and all the artwork too. My favorite was The High Priest by C. Deskin Rink. Had to look up a word so that was a bonus to learn something new.
