For the Night is Dark - horror anthology

Published April 2013 by Crystal Lake Publishing


The Dark is coming! Call your friends over. You don't want to go through this alone.

You will be taken back into the past, down to the depths of the ocean and across the borderline between our world and the next. You will see snapshots from the lives of small children, old-time cockney gangsters and aimless stoners. You will journey into the darkest house on the darkest street, wander hospital basements and take a flight in the comfort of first class. You will meet Mr Stix.

Are you scared of the dark? You will be.

Lost in the Dark by Joe Mynhardt / horror

Published August 2012 by Crystal Lake Publishing

In this first collection by Joe Mynhardt you will plunge into the bewildering world of werewolves, ghosts, psychos, zombies, demons, evil elves and things that should not be named. Follow five friends to the threshold of hell in Portico; walk alongside a young boy bent on killing his brother’s murderer in The Nature of the Beast; beware of your own demons in The Great Wall of Rubin.
These twelve stories will explore the theme of lost hope and the on-going struggle to free ourselves from despair. Are you sure you’re ready for this?

"A dozen strange and eerie short stories from a name you'll be seeing more of in the future... just when you think you've got him figured out, he sucker-punches you with the next twisted tale!" – Armand Rosamilia, author of the Dying Days zombie series

"Genuinely heart-warming characters rendered inside a wonderful mix of both profound and terrifying situations. From the dark corridors of an abandoned observatory in Portico to the happy scene of Christmas in Beyond the Ornate Tree, Joe shows us that horror lurks around every corner...when you're alone in the dark." – Clayton Stealback, author of Arcs

“Mynhardt delivers a vastly diverse collection with LOST IN THE DARK. From the anti-Claus to zombie hijinks, you never know what to expect. He explores both well-worn tropes and fresh ideas, all while pushing the envelope further and further into the shadows. Keep the lights on after reading this one, if you know what’s good for ya!”  – Tonia Brown, author of The Cold Beneath
