Suzzanne Myers's powerful flash fiction piece, "Withered Tree" continues with the exceptional short story, "Seven Dogs." Chanté McCoy's "Inside Monastic Walls" is followed by the literally gut-wrenching follow-up short story, "Body and Soul." Urban fantasy mayhem is off the charts with rising star Patrick Tomlinson's "Monsters in the Closet" and Robert D. Hamm's "Karma." Steampunk your thing? EA Younker's steampunk apocalypse tale "Stand," Sarah Hans' sequel about professor Campion, "A More Ideal Vessel," and Elaine Blose's steampunk Western "Wayward Brother" will whet your appetite. The dark fantasy and adventure continues as volume two mixes sequels from Gloria Weber, Sarah Kanning, Justin Swapp, and Isaac Bell with new stories from Lester Smith, Kathryn McGee, Adam Israel, Valerie Dircks, T.S. Rhodes, Elizabeth Shack, Daniel Alonso, and Nayad Monroe. New York Times Bestselling author and Campbell award nominee Larry Correia presents an exclusive short story, "Son of Fire, Son of Thunder" co-authored by Steven Diamond, about an FBI paranormal investigator and a marine who knows the moment of his own death. Travel to the alternate Earth of the "Red Bandanna Boys" by Patrick M. Tracy and discover how ruthless you must be to survive the slums of St. Nikolayev. Follow "The Trail of Blood" by Alex Haig, a horrifying Western about a bounty hunter who wants vengeance, not money. Hunt for Nazis in a disturbing 1950's America in "Hunters Incorporated" by Kelly Swails. Patrol the steaming jungles of Vietnam with a squad of soldiers in Lon Prater's "Last Rites in the Big Green Empty," then enter the mind of a godlike demon in Donald J. Bingle's "Dark Garden," or the creepy shadow world created by Richard Lee Byers in "Light and Dark." Watch your back, the demons are coming.
"If you like demons and dark fantasy, if you love the constant struggle of good against evil (or at least human vs. something clawed and taloned), an endless eternal war between humanity and hellborn, then this is definitely the anthology for you." Pippa Jay, Fantasy Book Review
