Darkscapes by Steven E. Wedel
5.0 out of 5 stars Nightmares from Darkness, Aug. 12 2003
Steven E. Wedel has put together an amazing collection of short fiction for his upcoming book, Darkscapes. Ranging from horror to science fiction to erotica, and even western, these thirty-four tales are ripped from the dark side of this rising young author's imagination and presented here, a venerable feast for the connoisseur of dark suspense.
Many of the stories, written from 1985 to 2001, have been previously published, and some, like "Reunion," the lead story, which won the Best Fiction contest and was published in Short Scary Tales, 2002, have already been recognized as outstanding works in their genre, but some of the stories are new, or newly revised, especially for this… Read more
