About this title


A superb collection of twenty-two never-before-published horror stories by such masters as Bradbury, Oates, and Singer, is crowned by "The Mist," a terrifying short novel by Stephen King


Dark Forces is one of the greatest collections of original horror stories published since World War II, and it may prove to be one of the most influential anthologies of its kind, ever. Edited by award-winning editor (and recognized authority) Kirby McCauley, this was the first superstar collection of famous horror writers. It has been often imitated but never surpassed. McCauley was inspired by another landmark collection; his goal was to publish an anthology "with the same scope and dynamism of Harlan's Ellison's Dangerous Visions, but in the supernatural horror field." Dark Forces succeeds on every level, especially in the selection of the 24 contributors, a "Who's Who" from across the spectrum of imaginative literature: Richard Matheson, Dennis Etchison, Ramsey Campbell, Ray Bradbury, Robert Bloch, Joyce Carol Oates, Isaac Bashevis Singer. Oh, yes, also found here is the first appearance of an unforgettable short novel called "The Mist" by an up-and-comer named Stephen King. Dark Forces belongs on the shelf of anyone who desires the very best the field has to offer. --Stanley Wiater
