Havoc After Dark: Tales of Terror

˹
Dafina Books, 2004 - 241 ˹
Foreword by Tananarive Due. Bold and provocative, the short stories in this collection blend traditional horror with political and sociological chills in which realistic themes such as slavery, war and capital punishment are harrowingly explored. Challenging the genre, Havoc After Dark takes real-life horrors from today's headlines and turns them into real-life nightmares. From slavery to Nazi torture, from suicide of the soul to death of the body, here are stories that cut to the bone and sear the psyche: a haunting collection that readers won't forget.
