About this Book

A collection of original horror stories by Bram Stoker Award Finalist Tom Leveen (author of SICK and HELLWORLD).

Monsters who once were family; the suspense of a gory attack; your childhood home awake and stalking you—welcome to Darkness Awaits! This collection includes one full-length novel, three novellas, and numerous short stories, some published for the first time in this omnibus edition. No matter your taste — body horror, slow-burn hauntings, bug invasions, living dolls, or serial killers meeting at their annual convention — Darkness Awaits has something for everyone.

The book is anchored by the novel Heartless, in which urban legends of a murderous figure called Springheel Jack date back to the 19th century. What 16-year-old Baylee is about to learn is that “he” is most certainly for real…and not alone.

Baylee and her older brother Elijah are orphans, their parents brutally murdered in what appears to be a random act of violence. Living with friends of the family they hardly know, the two teens do their best to build new friendships: shy Elijah with a small group of gamers, and quiet Baylee with exactly one tomboy skater friend, Krista…plus a strikingly beautiful and kind boyfriend Baylee won’t tell anyone about.

When Elijah suddenly gets his first girlfriend and Krista is picked up by a new boyfriend, both of them cease talking to Baylee. Determined to prove the two new kids are bad somehow, maybe even criminal, Baylee follows them out to the desert one night, and finds her worst fears are nothing compared to the bloody, gruesome truth. And her secret beau is right at the center of it…

As Elijah slowly turns into something dangerous and otherworldly and Baylee’s adoptive family moves to put her into a psychiatric health facility after she tells the truth about what she knows, Baylee turns to the only people who might be able to Elijah human again: her brother’s nerdy RPG gamer friends.

Also included is the haunting novella Those We Bury Back:  Infected by the traumas inflicted by his parents, novelist Braden and his only son Josiah becomes trapped in his childhood home, turning Braden’s long-buried memories into corporeal horrors threatening his fragile, still-recovering psyche and the childhood of his only son. Braden must quickly uncover what exactly the house wants from him–Or if it is, in fact, the house that’s haunted.

And so much more! Don’t miss it!
