Darkest Hours: Expanded Edition

My debut short story collection Darkest Hours is heavily indebted to horror cinema, in terms of thematic interest, imagery, and content. Now available from Journalstone, the Expanded Edition also includes a section of 17 essays on films within the genre. This list includes all titles highlighted within the essays, as well as works that influenced the fiction, either directly or indirectly.
