Horror Anthology: Dark Thirst

Horror Short Stories

Sorry I’m late to my own party but I had a little trouble with my website — mostly it didn’t want to let me in.

Today we’ll look at an older horror anthology which is still available in trade paperback and in e-book format.

In this collection, you’ll find several prominent African-American authors taking a stab at horror fiction as well as one author who had already won her first Stoker Award before this book came out and would go on to win two more: Linda Addison.
