Former ghost tour owner and storyteller David Allen Voyles' second collection of original stories Tales from the Hearse offers horror fans a Halloween treat for any time of year. While some stories like "The Open Crypt" and "A Graveyard Dare" might remind the reader of scary tales enjoyed in their youth, others in this new anthology such as "One More Offering" and "The Gray Man" would have been much too dark to tell on a family-friendly ghost tour. This book is for mature lovers of horror.
For Edwardian-era spiritualists and illusionists, silence is more than a strategy; it's a way of life. And when Max Grahame, a bullied, small-town teen, discovers a secretive world of occultism and's ances right under his nose, he can hardly contain his excitement. Impeccably researched and wildly imaginative, The Occultists is a darkly riveting historical fantasy in which magic is terrifying, and annihilation is closer than Max could ever imagine.
