DHC Strikes Again!

Just like bears getting ready to hibernate through the long mountain winter, this month DHC members sated themselves at the Standley Lake Library, sinking their teeth into some of their own horror fiction. Thanks again to librarian–and thriller author!–Sean Eads for the invite.

Meanwhile, our three monthly critique groups—in-person short fiction, virtual short fiction, virtual long fiction–are going strong, and we’ve got at least one new publication on the horizon for DHC’s small press.

Oh, and we’d like to welcome new members–Jason Dry, Sarah Read, Erica Hoffmeister, A.E. Santana, Allison Diekhoff, Sara Martinez, Andrew Padbury, Aaron Small, Charles Wood, and S. Michael Siegal—to the cult…um, we mean, group. If you aren’t already a member, what in HECK are you waiting for?

Finally, we’d wish you all a “happy Halloween,” but here at DHC, the dark festival never ends.

Dark Lit Market: BERGDORF & ASSOCIATES by Thomas C. Mavroudis

It’s #TERRORTUESDAY, so we’re releasing yet another DHC member’s published work from our DARK LIT MARKET!

This week, muster your guts for BERGDORF & ASSOCIATES by Thomas C. Mavroudis!

Down and out Abraham Kos has been a contract hand to the 72 Spirits of Solomon (demons to some, djinn to others) ever since his attempted suicide. The jobs Abe performs are generally simple, if questionable, but the most recent task posed by Abe’s handler, Bergdorf, is proving unusually difficult.

To complicate matters further, a powerful young woman named Rayne has been assigned the same task. To win the ensuing game of “keep away,” Abe will have to enlist the aid of his telepathically linked twin nieces, a brujo in training, and his dementia-afflicted father.

Jake Buchannan knows the woman sitting next to him on his business flight to Denver—he just can’t figure out how he knows her. Clara Stowe isn’t in Jake’s line of work and didn’t go to college with him. They have nearly nothing in common apart from a deep and shared certainty that they’ve met before. Despite their best efforts over a probing conversation, both struggle to figure out what circumstances could possibly have brought them together. Then, in a revelation that sends Jake reeling, Clara admits she’s traveling to the Colorado mountains to kill herself, and disappears into the crowded airport immediately after landing.

The Dead Girl in 2A is the story of what happens to Jake and Clara after they get off that plane, and the manipulative figure who has brought them together decades after they first met.

Carter Wilson is the award-winning and USA Today bestselling author of Mister Tender’s Girl. He lives outside of Boulder, Colorado, with his two children.
