Six great tales by six great up and coming horror/fantasy authors. I think the foreword by Sarah Read sums it up best in that fresh talent isn’t bogged down by convention. (I’m paraphrasing and she put it far more eloquently than I could.) There’s a wonderful level of enthusiasm to each of these stories, but don’t take that to mean there’s any deficiency in terms of craft. There isn’t.
All in all, I will be looking forward to seeing more work from any of these authors.
If you want to escape into new worlds of horror that are as innovative as they are haunting, Dark Conjurings fits the bill. This anthology presents dark vignettes of suspense and horror to haunt your deepest nightmares. In the male dominated world of horror these refreshing voices paint a new perspective in fear through tales that span time and reinvent themes in new ways. This collection has cast its spell on me. I found story telling within these pages that has stuck with me and will remain part of my personal headcanon for classic stories and urban legends alike.
