9781463561857: Four Corners Dark

People fear the dark for a reason. Out in the darkness, the demons and horrors of our imagination become all too real. Of those brave enough to leave the light and plunge into the world's dark corners, none come back unchanged. Some don't come back at all. Four Corners Dark offers up four very different tales of places where the darkness lingers, tempting you to step into the unknown.

In these tales by storyteller William McNally, a group of Mexican immigrants place their trust in the wrong coyote, or human smuggler, only to find their very souls at risk. A huckster with the ability to escape trouble by jumping realities discovers he may have made one jump too many. Two proud new homeowners find out--too late--they share their property with the ghost of a vengeful witch, and, in "The Spinning Wheel," one man's love for his son leads to a decision that changes both their destinies.

It's easy to be brave in the light, protected by our warm, comforting electric light bulbs or the warmth of the sun. Only in the darkness do we discover the limits of our courage. Step out of the light, and into the stories of Four Corners Dark.

From the Author:

After a career as an executive, I now live with my wife in the mountains surrounding Dahlonega, Georgia. I've always been drawn to dark and thought-provoking stories, an interest which led to my first two books, Four Corners Dark and Beneath the Veil.
 
A visit to an eerie motorcycle shop in the middle of nowhere inspired The Knights of Moonshine. I found myself surrounded by a veritable museum of odd pieces of motorized history, leaving me wondering about the shop's customers and any secrets they might hide.

From the Back Cover:

We think we beat the darkness. We hold it at bay with streetlamps and houselights, with the warm crackle of fires and the soft glow of television. We tell ourselves we've won, and banished whatever lurks in the shadows that still linger around as the sun sets. We're wrong.
 
Between the pages of Four Corners Dark, William McNally offers four tales to remind us the darkness still exists; ready to overwhelm us when the lights go out. In "Engine Eighteen," a young Mexican immigrant risks her life for a new start in the United States. She's about to discover she's also risking her soul.
 
"Return to Nowhere" introduces us to a card cheat capable of jumping dimensions to avoid trouble, only to discover that even infinite possibilities include dead ends. "The Raven Mocker" transports us to a couple's new mountain property, only to find a murderous spirit already considers the land home. And in "The Spinning Wheel," we discover how far one man will go for his son.
 
Four stories, each home to their own brand of darkness. By all means, laugh at the dark while you're surrounded by the light, but eventually--inevitably--all lights go out, leaving you alone with Four Corners Dark.
