Enter At Your Own Risk: Dark Muses, Spoken Silences


Firbolg Publishing is pleased to announce our stunning list of authors for Dark Muses, the new anthology due 1 October.

Exploring the unspoken voices, Dark Muses presents alternative points of view in four of the most classic dark fiction tales ever written.


Our authors:

Edgar Allan Poe ‘s “The Black Cat”

Blaze McRob, one of the masterminds behind Angelic Night Press and the Visionary Press Cooperative, brings us the chilling tale of the wife in Poe’s ghastly tale. Was she the innocent victim or was there something more sinister behind closed doors?

Timothy Hurley, author of numerous short stories, shocks the world of literature with his radical revelations on Poe and this infamous story!

But what of the cat? What tale does it have to tell? Find out in our third story!


John Polidori’s The Vampyre

B.E. Scully, author of the critically acclaimed dark fiction novel Verland: The Transformation and The Knife and The Wound It Deals, will speak for Ruthven’s doomed bride Miss Aubrey. But was she as doomed as we were led to believe?

Johnny Kelley, author of the critically acclaimed dark fiction work Seraphim, will give us the haunting voice of Lord Ruthven himself. Just how evil is this dark lord?


H.P Lovecraft’s The Call of Cthulhu

Award-winning fantasy and horror author writer Mike Chinn tells the twisted and disturbing tale of Azif, known to the world as the Necronomicon. Was this book really born evil?

The multi-talented, award-winning author Gregory Norris unleashes the story of one of horror’s most famous monsters. Cthulhu finally gets his day.


Washington Irving’s The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Katrina Van Tassel, the object of desire for two men, speaks through the talented pen of Gothic writer Carole Gill, author of The House on Blackstone Moor. Just how innocent was this young maiden in the hills of old New York?

T. Fox Dunham uses his gift for history and writing to give you the much-maligned Bram Bones’ version of those fateful events in his small, isolated town. Was he the villain Crane made him out? Or was there something more sinister at work?

Marcus Kohler delves into the dark thoughts of the Horseman himself. What is this entity haunting Sleepy Hollow? What dark secrets does this tiny town hold?


Listen to the voices speak in October…
