Publisher Comments:

David Morrell, whose many bestsellers include Double Image, Extreme Denial, and The Brotherhood of the Rose, has consistently redefined the modern thriller. Now he turns to a darker side of suspense in a powerful collection of tales, many of them award winners, that delve into the weird, uncanny terrors that lurk just beneath the comforting surfaces of daily life.

Fear of loss, fear of pain, fear of madness, fear of being trapped, fear of the inescapable, unspeakable horrors that fester deep within the soul....No matter who or where you are, fear is always with you, always ready to attack from behind the masks of thought and dream. Let David Morrell tell you a story...

From the American heartland to the edge of Hell, David Morrell presents a career-spanning examination into his own life...and the fears we all share. From his first published short fiction to his latest, award-winning stories, including:

"The Beautiful Uncut Hair of Graves" — Winner, Best Novella, Horror Writers of America Award: Both your parents die suddenly; now, going through their legal papers, you find adoption papers, dated on your birthday...signed in a town that has been abandoned...

"Orange Is for Anguish, Blue for Insanity" — Winner, Best Novella, Horror Writers of America Award: Beneath the placid, beautiful landscapes of a master's paintings lie hidden levels of pain, madness...and unearthly horrors...

"Dead Image" — Finalist, Best Novella, World Fantasy Award: You know, of course, that Hollywood movie stars think fame is more important than life itself...but you don't know the half of it...

"The Shrine" — Nominee, Best Novella, Horror Writers of America Award: Parents grieving the deaths of their children find a hidden place that offers lost hope...or eternal madness...

Review:

"Morrell, an absolute master of the thriller, plays by his own rules and leaves you dazzled." Dean Koontz

Review:

"[G]enerally intriguing but uneven....The best of the stories showcase Morrell's ability to capture pure, hard-driving suspense....Even the less successful stories, however, have a gripping quality...that drives the plot forward and locks a reader's attention." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Everything [David Morrell] writes has a you-are-there quality, and that, coupled with his ability to propel characters through a scene, makes reading him like attending a private screening." Washington Post Book World

Synopsis:

Black Evening is the first collection of Morrell's short stories ever assembled. These stories — many of them award winners — delve into the weird, uncanny terrors that lurk just beneath the comforting surfaces of daily life.

A great collection of short horror genre stories. They are gripping and realastic (no crazy stuff like demons flying out of the characters noses). Just wonderfully creepy.
