For nearly two decades, the Night Visions anthologies have provided a form for some of the finest dark fantasists of the modern era. Subterranean Press proudly continues the tradition with the twelfth installment of this landmark series.
A screenwriter's marshland retreat becomes a place of unutterable terror in "My God, My God," a gleefully wicked homage to the works of William Hope Hodgson.
An experiment in lucid dreaming leads a man into a sinking house where he encounters the titular trio of famous literary figures, and something much worse, in "Poe, Lovecraft, Jackson."
The concept of humankind as the true evil rises to the fore in "Frankenstein, Victor," an alternate world sequel to Mary Shelley's seminal classic.
"Feeding Frenzy" follow the surreal and nightmarish journey of an average bookstore employee in the wake of a series of murders seemingly inspired by pulp-horror novels.
The Rod Serling-esque setup of a man awaking to find himself alone in a town takes a hellish and horrifying turn in "What Nature Abhors."
In "The Story of April and Her Colours," a unique boy finds himself embroiled in an equally unique situation when he meets a woman with lights beneath her skin.
P. D. Cacek
An egotistical psychotherapist falls for his patient -- a woman with five other personalities, all of whom are very much aware of each other, and quite possibly a secret sixth -- in the chilling supernatural thriller "Forced Perspective."
"Campfire Story" is the tale of one dark summer, and the haunted well from which horror springs eternal...
These are the tellers, dear reader, and here are their tales, submitted for your approval on this darkest of nights...

The latest installment in the venerable Night Visions series, edited by relative newcomer Burke (Hides), matches the talent included in previous volumes with eight horror stories from three masters of the genre. Simon Clark honors past masters of the genre with his three pieces; the best of which-"Frankenstein, Victor"-reimagines Mary Shelley's classic and exemplifies Clark's political commentary, vivid imagery and incisive characterization. Mark Morris's contributions stand out in the volume, particularly "The Story of April and Her Colours," narrated with eerie sweetness by the autistic protagonist, and the nightmarish What Nature Abhors, about one man's descent into a very personal hell. P.D. Cacek rounds out this excellent anthology with Forced Perspective, a novella about a psychiatrist's romances with his patient's multiple personalities, and Campfire Story, about a boy who'd do almost anything for his best friend.

The latest Night Visions showcases three authors. Simon Clark is a horror traditionalist, whose work recalls such past masters as Poe and Lovecraft as it deftly conjures a House-of-Usher-like aura of thickening doom. Mark Morris' stuff suggests contemporary cinema FX as it palpably, gruesomely realizes the term morph. P. D. Cacek's stories are unsettling on many levels. In one, an egotistical, ambitious psychotherapist plans not only on making his reputation with a multiple--personality patient but also on "making" her, or them. His increasing infatuation with the tease; the irritating smoker; the uptight, repressed maiden; and more drives him toward a blood-chilling, bloodletting encounter. Whitney Scott
