Darkling Smiles: Tales of Brightness Darkled

#1 Horror Bestseller and multiple Bram Stoker Award finalist Michaelbrent Collings brings you tales of darkling brightness...

 

A family that wins tablet computers at a deal to good to be believed...

A man who is sent across the universe, only to discover the most dangerous world in existence...

A hitman who realizes that his greatest contract is going to be himself...

A man whose child has been targeted by a cult, and must decide what he is willing to do to save those he loves...

 

Internationally-bestselling author and multiple Bram Stoker Award finalist Michaelbrent Collings brings you eight tales of people whose lives -- and sometimes deaths -- have fallen into decay. Tales of the ordinary and the extraordinary, the outrageous and the banal. Tales of lives bright, lives dim.

 

Stories of a universe fallen, where every happiness has its opposite, and every smile will be inevitably darkled...

Reviews
The weird and the eerie gambol together across the pages of Collings’s chilling collection of eight tales, all of which explore human frailty and moral ambiguity. “To Dream Awake, to Sleep the Real” follows the dissolution of a family after they mysteriously win a package of personal computer tablets. Both “A Very Personal Hell” and “Take Only One” describe Twilight Zone–esque encounters with personal demons. The superb “A Darklight Call’d on the Long Last Night of the Soul” is an unnerving tale of a perilous space mission that unearths an eldritch horror. The other standout, “Perdition,” is a novella-length descent into the madness of satanic worship, as one man discovers that his existence is intrinsically tied to the demons of Hell. Collings (Stranger Still) has a gift for conjuring unsettling atmospheres and subverting readers’ expectations. The frenetic pacing sustains the suspense through each of these stories, and the often gruesome imagery leaves its mark. These tense, unusual stories are as scary as they are satisfying.
