The darkness of the eclipsed sun has long been treated as a special moment, often even a sign from the universe. This habit we have of ascribing meaning to a recurring event has led to eclipses being associated with abnormal births, unnatural deaths, and the end of the world. The 24 stories in this collection, from various genres, are linked together by a single theme: solar or lunar eclipse.

We see swindlers and jealous lovers, eclipse tourists and ancient Arab astronomers, shapeshifters and time travelers, the dangerously insane and those who cannot accept that a loved one is dead. Along the way, we view eclipses through the lenses of prophecy, science, and religion. Eclipses justify violence, provide a platform for political commentary, and serve as inspiration for art, with the blood moon and the wolf eating the sun equally powerful images.

Published in conjunction with the 2017 solar eclipse, which was visible over much of the United States, “Day of the Dark: Stories of Eclipse” serves up compelling stories of love and loss, jealousy and hatred, fear and reconciliation, as people in many times and places respond to the drama of a celestial event.
