Welcome to a new Waiting on Wednesday! Whoo! Today another horror book that I am eagerly waiting for and that is set to be released September 6th: The Gathering Dark!
I just LOVE LOVE anthologies, you get a whole wide range of everything. And I am very curious about these writers. They are all pretty new to me, except for Chloe Gong (I read a short story by her), so I am excited to find some new authors to love and I am very curious what kind of folk horror they will bring in their story. Eep! And the blurb just sounds absolutely epic. I mean, isolated bridge with a terrifying monster? Yes! A lake that allows drowned peeps to return… but different. OH YES! Though I guess I have to wait just a bit longer as I kind of want to wait until October comes around! This would be a perfect read for my Spooktober TBR!
And I am absolutely LOVING that cover. Haha, though I guess I won’t see much of it as there is only a Kindle/ebook or hardcover coming out for now, and I just want a paperback. But maybe if I read the Kindle and it is good enough… I can add the book to my collection and look at the cover even more!
A cemetery full of the restless dead. A town so wicked it has already burned twice, with the breath of the third fire looming. A rural, isolated bridge with a terrifying monster waiting for the completion of its summoning ritual. A lake that allows the drowned to return, though they have been changed by the claws of death. These are the shadowed, liminal spaces where the curses and monsters lurk, refusing to be forgotten.
Hauntings, and a variety of horrifying secrets, lurk in the places we once called home. Written by New York Times bestselling, and other critically acclaimed, authors these stories shed a harsh light on the scariest tales we grew up with.
