Each year, as summer fades to memory, and the sky begins to grow dark, and the leaves change colour and fall, the faint, fetid scent of death—of slowly rotting things—begins to drift in, hanging on the chill air like a ghostly pall, making us wonder what this year’s harvest will produce.
Well…the harvest is here. And it’s dead.
With these 50 dark tales (and nearly 700 pages of terror!) readers will experience fear, depravity, love, and loss. And a kind of chill that won’t soon leave your bones.
My contribution, Harberry Close, is the story of a frustrated commuter who gets on the wrong train and ends up somewhere he never wished to be. But that’s just the beginning of his nightmare.

Moore, Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Tim Waggoner, David Bernstein, Richard Thomas, Jon Michael Kelley, Brian Kirk, Chad P. Brown, Lori R. Lopez, Stuart Keane, Tim Jeffreys, Ahimsa Kerp, C.M.
