Darkness: A Collection of Short Horror Stories
Your darkest dreams, your deepest fears...
Darkness: A Collection of Short Horror Stories is an ongoing series of books featuring stark, dark fiction tales that tap in to themes of loss, desparation, fear, and the supernatural.
Volume One was originally released under the title Darkness Calls - A Collection of Short Horror Stories. Andy has since decided to turn his love of producing hard-hitting short dark fiction stories into a series, and the previously published work will form the first volume of this collection when its Second Edition is released later in 2022.
Volume One: darkness Calls
A woman facing consequences of her actions more far reaching than she could ever imagine, a crazed doctor on a twisted quest to create the perfect companion, and an old widow bearing the strangest of fruit...
These are just some of the kaleidoscopic characters that await your attention in the Darkness.
Originally released in 2012 and being completely rewritten, revised and expanded for 2021, the first volume of Darkness - A Collection of Short Horror Stories brings together some of Andy's stronger previous works and collects them here with new dark fiction stories.
Combining themes of loss, desparation, love, and the supernatural, these stories showcase Andy's range as a dark fiction author while promising even better to come.

Six haunting tales fill the pages of the second volume of Darkness - A Collection of Short Horror Stories, with each story showcasing the strength of Andy's dark fiction writing.
