The 10th Anniversary edition of Vigilantes of Love, John Everson's second book-length collection of tales of short fantasy and the macabre, includes a new preface by the author and six additional stories not present in the original release!

A woman whose life is shaped and doomed by the "Calling of the Moon"...

A girl who learns the secret powers of the "Seven Deadly Seeds"...

A boy who finds that the power of music can open a hidden world thanks to a flute hidden in the attic...

A man who learns the meaning behind the voodoo curse that brings the "Vigilantes of Love" from the hearts of the New Orleans swamps to punish the adulterers under the light of the full moon...

Vigilantes of Love offers these and many more tales of dark magic, the macabre and things that happen when you go one step beyond.

Vigilantes of Love was originally issued in 2003 by Chicago-based Twilight Tales, a year before a limited edition of Everson's first novel, the Bram Stoker Award-winning Covenant, was released.

While Everson's first book of short fiction, Cage of Bones & Other Deadly Obsessions, focused on erotic horror, Vigilantes of Love was something of a flip side -- this collection offers light and dark fantasy tales, mixed with the occasional slice of horror.

The Dark Arts Books 10th Anniversary edition of Vigilantes of Love is an expanded release that includes six never-before-collected Everson tales -- including his first horror publication, "Learning To Build" -- alongside Vigilantes of Love's original 15 dark fantasy and horror stories. The book includes the voodoo-zombie oriented title story, written especially for the collection, as well as "Calling of the Moon," which received an Honorable Mention in the Year's Best Fantasy & Horror anthology, and "Lovesong" a 5th Place winner in the 2000 World Horror Convention Fiction Contest.
