Dark Screams Omnibus Volume One

Richard Chizmar and I joined forces with the cutting edge team at Hydra, a division of Random House, in 2014 to launch a series of horror eBook anthologies called Dark Screams that collected stories by the best authors working in the business. Now, we’re pleased to announce that the first five volumes of the Dark Screams series will be collected in one beautiful hardcover special edition!

About the Book:
Dark Screams presents 25 stories written by the biggest names writing horror today including Stephen King, Robert McCammon, Clive Barker, Peter Straub, Jack Ketchum, Kelley Armstrong, Bentley Little, Bill Pronzini, Simon Clark, Ramsey Campbell, Darynda Jones, Jacquelyn Frank, Brian Hodge, Norman Prentiss, Lisa Morton, Shawntelle Madison, Graham Masterton, Heather Graham, Ray Garton, Ed Gorman, Mick Garris, J. Kenner, Kealan Patrick Burke, Del James, and Richard Christian Matheson.

These stories add up to more than 160,000 words of terror, which were originally published as eBook mini-anthologies by Random House, and this omnibus edition will see them in print together for the first time as one big oversized signed (by the editors and artists) Limited Edition hardcover.

Featuring full-color cover artwork by Vincent Chong and full-color endpapers by Alan M. Clark, this special edition is being designed with both general readers and serious book collectors in mind.

Reviews & Praise for the Dark Screams Series:
“This is a solid collection of quick reads, a nice selection of appetizers that represent the horror genre and many of its incarnations well.”
— Blu Gilliand, October Country

“These tales are well written, fun to read, and a great way to kill a winter afternoon. Recommended for fans of short story collections and dark fiction!”
— Horror After Dark

Dark Screams isn’t published by Cemetery Dance, but with the editors of Cemetery Dance at the helm, it’s going to be a solid series. It certainly helped me pass a few hours in enjoyment.”
— Adventures Fantastic

“If Volume One is any indication of quality, I’m all in for the rest of the series.”
— Not Too Terrible

“I thoroughly enjoyed Dark Screams and look forward to future publications.”
— The Dragon’s Roost

“It’s a really good (short) collection. It’s only got five stories, but they’re all from fairly well known authors, and they’re all good… This is a really good anthology, and since it’s only available in ebook form, it’s cheap, too.”
— Yoyogod’s Reviews of Books and Stuff I Like

“…volume one hooked me well enough that I’m anticipating the next four installments, and thus I would still recommend picking up Dark Screams. It’s only three bucks after all, and the entries from King, Campbell and Pronzini are worth the price of admission alone.”
— Christopher Shultz, LitReactor

“Dark Screams: Volume One is an excellent addition to any horror lovers bookshelf.  I can’t wait to see what evil lurks in Dark Screams: Volume Two!”
— Melissa Minners, G-POP.net

“Daniels’ fantastically creepy delivery provides a delightful listening experience.”
Booklist Audio Review

“[Daniel’s] deep voice grips listeners and demands their attention throughout the collection.”
