The air has grown crisp – October is here. With October comes autumn leaves, apple cider, and the siren call of The Dark Carnival.
Will you answer its call? Will you heed the beckon?
The doors are opening.
Will you leave with your life?
Blurb: In this anthology, several authors and illustrators explore the dark and hidden dangers that lie within a carnival that has come to town. But it is no ordinary carnival. It’s The Dark Carnival.
And when The Dark Carnival comes to town, there’s no promise that anyone can leave…alive.

“Don’t let what’s on the outside fool you, babe.” He cooed, close enough that my heart began to thud erratically. “It’s the inside you have to be afraid of.”
“Whatever.” I said with a laugh. “I bet it’s all cheese and clichés.” He didn’t seem perturbed by my remark instead he followed without hesitation as I made my way up the four metal steps and into the mouth of the beast.
Despite the carnival being closed for the night, the low neon lights of the house of horror buzzed on. They lit the hallway in pockets, showing four doorways along the length. Excitement filled me like air in a balloon. I had never been one to shy away from the jeepers creepers or a good horror flick. The unknown, whether good or bad, was an intriguing topic I didn’t mind exploring.
