THIS SUBLIME DARKNESS:
Seven DARK STORIES of grief, madness and nightmares, from
Bram Stoker and Australian Shadows Award-nominated author Greg Chapman
A small-town secret unearths itself
A stone drives a madman onto the streets of Whitechapel
A man takes a new wife – and the ghost of her mother!
A photo album sends a grieving man into a spiral of nightmares
A creature collects the last words of death-row inmates
An insomniac fights nocturnal evils, unaware of the evil within
And a widow has one final embrace with his long lost love
