"Everyone carries a shadow," wrote analyst Carl Jung, "and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is." 

Few of us see the shadow with any clarity. Turn around for a peek, it slips away. Our violent, sexually tinged fantasies are indulged regularly in darkened theaters, savored in eerie prose, celebrated in song, sometimes reluctantly encountered within the depths of a reoccurring nightmare. When we do look hard at one, long enough to recognize it as our own, the experience can challenge reality. We can then choose to become wiser as a result--or spin totally out of control... 

How many fragments of a shattered mirror could you examine and still survive? 

In this collection, his first in nearly ten years, award winning author Harry Shannon gives us twenty three short stories, some published here for the first time. 

Dark Regions Press is proud to present "A Host of Shadows."


"Master craftsmanship."

"Shannon is a writer who is not afraid to walk into the shadows and drag the things living there kicking and screaming into the light."

"Harry Shannon takes age-old themes and gives them a new and fearsome bite. Vividly realized, his writing is controlled, assured, and filled with the kind of spooky atmosphere that used to make you hide your head under the bedcovers on wind-wracked nights." 

"A literary muscle rarely seen in the horror field these days; in fact, the last time I can remember reading novels that were both this action-packed and this smart was in the heyday of Robert McCammon. Shannon is a writer of incredible energy who never blinks his eye for detail."
