INTO THE DARKNESS was first published as a magazine in the mid-1990s by David G. Barnett, and included stories by now-respected names in the horror fiction world: Edward Lee, Charlee Jacob, John Everson, Gerard Houarner, D.F. Lewis and dozens more. After only five issues, Necro stopped the magazine, and focused on books. We’ve now resurrected Into the Darkness in this all-new anthology series of dark, brutal, unrelenting horror fiction from new and established authors alike. We hope you enjoy reading the series as much as we enjoy finding new voices in modern horror.
About the Author
Dave Barnett lives on the outskirts of Orlando, Florida with his blind dachshund named Chauncey. During the day he works as a graphic designer for his Fat Cat Design company designing books for lots of small press publishers. At night he becomes DJ L.D. and runs Necropolis, a long-running industrial / EBM / synthpop / electro night at The Independent Bar in downtown Orlando. Somewhere in there he has managed to run Necro Publications for the past 17 years, publishing some of the best names in modern horror: Edward Lee, Charlee Jacob, Gerard Houarner, Mehitobel Wilson, Jeffrey Thomas, Patrick Lestewka and dozens of others in various anthologies. Dave has been published in a couple of the Shivers anthologies from Cemetery Dance Publications. He also has a story in the two-author chapbook The Baby along with Edward Lee. His collection, Dead Souls, came out form from Shocklines Press in 2004 and at least a couple of people seemed to like it. The Fallen: Book 1 is the first in what will hopefully be a long series books containing tales about angels and demons that will finally come together (fingers crossed) in one climatic battle for Heaven.
