Inklings Press brings you five tales of horror from writers from around the world. What will emerge from the mists, what can we know of the creatures that lurk beyond that veil? Open the covers of this book – and discover.

Leo McBride writes about a creature of Bahamas folklore – The Chickcharney, stepping into the woods of the island of Andros where it is said to dwell.

Ricardo Victoria takes us on a trip into drug-addled madness in Bone Peyote, as old traditions and Old Ones converge during the Mexican celebration of Dia de Muertos – the Day of the Dead.

Morgan Porter brings a Lovecraftian chill to affairs in his story The Pillar of Hendarac as he explores to find the truth that lurks beneath the surface, and the creatures that linger there.

Driven mad by work? Alei Kotdaishura’s story Beast introduces us to a woman on the edge, but what will happen if she pushes over that edge – and will there be any way to come back?

Finally, Brent A Harris takes us a step into the future, into a world where Death may no longer touch us – only to discover there is a fate far worse than dying.

Join us in our journey into the deepest cracks of the mind, as we delve into these stories of the strange and the cerebral. You are about to turn a page into the unknown.

 

I received a copy of this book from one of the authors for an honest review.

Tales From the Mists is a horror anthology. Each story is set in its own bone chilling world. You won’t find the slasher horror in this book. Each story plays on psychological fears and makes you wonder how you would fare in their individual world.

Since this is an anthology, I’m not going to go into detail about the stories. There were some I liked and some I didn’t. I wasn’t completely chilled to the bone, but each story was a quick read that I could see being scary for other readers. They did inspire me to want to learn more about their individual worlds.

The writing styles aren’t completely different. Even though each story was written by a different person, they felt a part of the same book. Which is good because they were.

All in all, the book was a nice quick read and would have been better if I chose to read it at night or during a storm.
