Author Bio
Where Evil Dwells does something all anthologies should: bring together the usual suspects and the shifty outsiders who can really stretch out a genre or a trope. In this collection of scary stories, writers explore the macabre and the monstrous, the ghoulish and ghostly, drawing from folklore, superstition, the paranormal and fantastical. Editor Vernon Oickle deftly calls upon his fellow veteran spooksters like Steve Vernon, Sherry D Ramsey and Darryl Walsh, but also enlists recognizable but unexpected contributors like Frank Macdonald (A Forest for Calum) and Darren Greer (Advocate). The result is a delightfully frightening set of stories with some serious literary chops.
