By Damon Rathe, Louise Hunt and Kenneth Frank.
This illustrated book shows exactly what can happen when you take three very different horror, fantasy and sci-fi writers, dismember their work, and then fiendishly stitch it back together in the form of an anthology of their compiled short stories.
A contorted mixture of sinister sci-fi horror, ghostly goings on and true-life terror, carefully combined within the cover of this book.
An anthology of 15 stories all built around a theme of the darkness within, usually resulting in murder or death. Each story is introduced with an illustration to entice you into what may follow...
Story titles include: River of Dreams, Community Spirits, To Play the Game, Geoff, Shadow of January Gloom, Sensation Seekers, Miss Hate, Redundancy, Eyes in the Dark, Bramble Cottage, Lady Luck, Writer's Block, Disturbance, Just the Three of Us & The Beast.

About the Author
Martin Rothery (AKA Damon Rathe) started creative writing in September 2008 after enrolling on a creative writing course at the local college wanting to develop his writing style and ideas and has never looked back since. By June 2009 he had joined the Holmfirth Writers' Group and March 2010 he became the treasurer. After having had a few poems published, an article in a cat magazine and self published his first charity book Nonagenarians in remembrance of his grandparents and their writing, everything had been leading up to the first defining moment - the release of COWS!, his first novel. Since then, in 2012 he's started his own independent publishing company, Fishcake Publications (www.fishcakepublications.com), released and co-authored another book of short stories, Souls of Darkness, under the pen name of Damon Rathe, published the prequel to Cows! titled Sheep and has just released his first full novel under the guise of Damon Rathe called Human Rights: Undead Set on Living. Preferring to write children's stories and horror/fantasy/sci-fi he likes to release the former under his own name and the latter under his writing pseudonym. Damon Rathe is the dark side of Martin Rothery that sometimes wishes to be let out. Martin is also an illustrator and cover designer and has done the covers for COWS!, Sheep, County Tales, Murgatroyd's Christmas Club, Human Rights and A Fistful of Marigolds as well as some of the internal images for Souls of Darkness. This allows him to do all the work in house at Fishcake Publications. He often does workshops for children in the local community (if this of interest, please get in touch) and Huddersfield Libraries and has recently been involved with the Pageturners Festival in Huddersfield and will be involved in some way at the Holmfirth Arts Festival in 2014. He also loves going on residential writing weekends like the ones run by the National Association of Writers Groups and can usually be found at the Wentworth Castle, Barnsley retreat every year. In the future, as well as continuing to write, Martin is excited to be working with a host of debut novelists as an editor and bringing new authors into the spotlight as a publisher very soon.
Louise Hunt is the (not so) secret identity of another writer of the stories in Souls Of Darkness. Although Louise writes in a few different genres she finds horror to be rather therapeutic as she gets to plot grisly ends for her characters, some of whom may or may not be based on real life people. She says that this way at least she doesn't have to hide the bodies.
Kenneth Frank (aka Warren Lee in real life) is not only a talented fantasy and sci-fi writer, but he is also an excellent illustrator and digital artist. This isn't the first work that Warren has in print as he has contributed to the 'Pennine Reflections' and 'Reflections of Holme' anthologies released by the Holmfirth Writers' Group. He is currently working on a childrens sci-fi epic that will hopefully get published in the near future.
