Havoc after Dark: Tales of Terrorby Robert Fleming, Tananarive Due (Foreword by)
...the world is cloaked in shadow and hearts pound in deafening dread. Every step is suspect, every moment counted, every sound feared. This is the hour when panic takes hold. Terror does not distinguish among class or race or place. See it stalk its prey in a murky basement in Spanish Harlem...under a haunted voodoo moon on a Caribbean isle...by ghoulish candlelight in a Mardi Gras backroom. These are the minutes when reality fades, defenses crumble, and only the unknown triumphs. No one is spared. Not parish priest, shape shifter, or fortuneteller. Not homicidal boy or cunning woman. Within seconds, paid killers roam city streets and murderers reborn emerge from fearful chambers of the undead. Within minutes, life slips away to ungodly applause, amulets work black magic, and satanic traditions throw blood at the stars. Now is the instant when... Smell it in the heat of lupine passion. Taste it in the lusty wound of a vampire's kiss. Feel it in the eternal caress of a lover to die for. Experience it in every spine-tingling page of these provocative horror tales. From slavery and infinite consequence to Nazi torture and undying aftermath, from suicide of the soul to death of the body, here are stories that cut to the bone and sear the psyche.
