When the Darkness Falls - J. F., Gonzalez Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
Four years after his first collection of short stories, J. F. Gonzalez and Midnight Library are proud to bring you this follow-up volume. Within these pages you will find: A nightmare in which an axe-wielding madman stalking the streets becomes reality for a young family trapped in their home during the height of a blizzard. In a world ravaged by the living dead, one man’s mission to find female companionship lands him more than he bargained for. A magazine editor discovers that a deceased pulp writer’s most notorious work is a warning of Lovecraftian nightmares yet to come on an unsuspecting world. These are just a few of the samplings you’ll find in this new major short story collection by the author of such novels as Bully, Survivor, and Clickers. It’s all here - Lovecraftian pulp horror, surreal SF, psychological and classic supernatural-based horror, and even a rare mainstream piece. This volume reprints material from obscure sources as well as mass-market anthologies. Also included is a brand new story, “Finding the Flame.” Like his previous collection, Old Ghosts and Other Revenants, this volume features stories across a wide spectrum, from the subtle to the extreme. So pull up a chair, flip the page, turn on the light and wait until…When the Darkness Falls.
