Dark Light is the light that shines through when some of the finest writers in horror use the power of their words for good. That's the case with this anthology 42 writers coming together to help support the Ronald McDonald House Charities and all the good the organization does for families every day of the year. Make no mistake, though. These are horror writers and the stories they've written are not pretty. Traditional and non-traditional horror, dark humor, ghosts, serial killers, alternate universes, magic, zombies, and other creatures of the night hide between these pages. Shadows move and dead fingers stroke unsuspecting flesh, razor sharp knives shimmer in the moonlight, and unknown things hide in closets and under the bed. The stories here are as varied as the writers themselves. If you're a fan of horror, you will not be let down. Despite the horrific nature of these tales, however, their very existence in Dark Light stands as proof there will always be a light at the end of every tunnel.
