Darkness. It’s the primary fear of small children, the playground of the corrupt, and a piece of it lives inside us all.
This revised edition includes ten stories: two previously published stories, a few that have been expanded by popular demand, and three that are brand new, written exclusively for this collection. Also featuring a story contribution by author Mark Gardner.
Several stories included touch on the theme of the innocence of childhood, and the betrayal of the adults meant to protect it.
“Worse Than Witches”, the story of a precocious young girl who liked to cry wolf, is not for the squeamish, and the fan favorite “Hungry” explores the innocent beginnings of a cannibal.
