Hidden in the dark corners of our reality are the passages to spaces beyond. Is it there that unfortunate souls come face to face with the horrors that move silently about us in everyday life. Take a breath, take a chance, and turn the page...
David Dunwoody, the author of EMPIRE, presents strange and chilling tales in which there is no escape to be found - only confrontation with the dark entities of the author's imagination. Giant ghouls in a graveyard, rebellious demons chained eternally in Hell, ravenous shape-shifters on a lost island, and the specter of Death himself are awaiting you within the confines of this book to collect your soul. Join us. Take a chance, but will you survive?!
Lavishly illustrated by Tom Moran. This is the very first book in the New Voices of Horror series. The Deluxe edition will include two new stories which will not appear in the other editions, and one additional illustration by Tom Moran.
"Within the pages of Dark Entities you'll find a mix of artistic sensibility, extreme characters and gruesome horror - crafted with both skill and apitutude. The sentance structure is lean; the vivid imagery portrayed is not unlike the darkest work from Hieronymus Bosch. Look out world, David Dunwoody has arrived." - James Roy Daley, author of The Dead Parade
"Has the ability to resonate in your mind...a frightening experience." - Dr. Pus, "Library of The Living Dead" podcast
"Although half of the stories in this collection were previously published, I hadn't read any of them, or in fact anything by this writer. The author is heavily into monstrous creatures and most of his heroes don't emerge from their encounters happily, if they emerge at all. Flesh eaters, demons, lurching figures and others capable of changing their shapes fill the pages, most of them decidedly unfriendly. Mostly traditional stories with a lean toward the grotesque. The dialogue is good, the descriptive sections sometimes uneven. My favorites were "The Ambrosia Supper Club" and "Sunset." The illustrations by Thomas Moran are excellent. This is the first in the New Voices of Horror series of single author collections. Let's hope subsequent volumes maintain the same standards." - Don D'Ammassa, Critical Mass
