3 REASONS TO PURCHASE HERE & NOT AT AMAZON: 1, BVP ships free to lower US and pays all sales tax. 2, Every book is inspected and signed by the author. Hassel-free returns, too. 3, Amazon has undercut America's small, indy bookstores to the point where many have closed. We need our Indy bookstores. Please help.  4, Amazon takes a big cut. Although you might save a bit more than a dollar, you will also be denying the author about five. Independent authors depend on internet sales. Thanks for supporting indy authors by ordering from our websites. JB

DARK is a collection of over 50 original, eerie poems and delightfully frightening short stories by James Brakken. Some are morbidly amusing, many utterly nightmarish, and others are simply downright disturbing. Over 50 darkly evocative engravings accentuate the macabre nature of the DARK collection. It is for all readers, contains no excessive obscenities nor sexual content, and is perfect reading by the fire on stormy nights, around the campfire, or by flashlight under the covers--provided the door is barred and bolted. DARK is neatly sliced into three parts: Dark, Darker, and Darkest. Each leads you to the next as you creep toward the shivery end. DARK is frightening but delightfully so.
