Dark Prints Press presents its first horror anthology:
Imagine the world has ended, that all but a small portion of Earth’s population has been wiped out.
You have never had time to find out why.
Your energy is spent on surviving – skewed weather patterns, crumbling buildings, starving creatures, and humans mercilessly hunting their own kind. You left the confines of your home long ago, alone, searching for remaining shreds of humanity.
Then, one day, you finally stumble upon a small group of survivors who wish you no harm. They have something to share with you. Something to help you survive. Stories, modern fables, of how to avoid the nightmares you hadn’t even considered.
These stories and more, from across the world, are collected within these pages, told by survivors just like you, to help with ‘Surviving the End’.
Edited by Craig Bezant.

Dark Prints Press presents its first dark crime anthology:
Too often our crime-solving heroes do just that – solve crimes. But what about the ones who get away – the grifters who con and don’t get caught, the criminals who play cat-and-mouse games with the law only to disappear into the unknown? What goes through their minds, or the minds of their victims and pursuers? What legends do they leave behind, both inspirational and terrifying?

Penny Crescent. One street. Three houses. Three families. Countless disputes.
Physics teacher Frank Harper educates with his fists behind closed doors. Jenny Dean can barely control her wayward teenage sons and Eleanor McQuire, the old mystic, is happy with her books and visiting grandson.
For one night, the residents of Penny Crescent must put their differences aside. Death is coming.
Some call him the man in black. Others call him the Devil. He is The Collector, and the three families have something he wants…
And he’ll go to any length to get it.

White Lines, White Crosses
by Andrew J McKiernan
White crosses line the roadside, sad reminders of the teenagers who’ve died pushing their cars to the limit in search of excitement and release from small-town boredom. But nothing can prepare the new kid from the city for the twisted hero worship that has grown up around these simple memorials to the dead.

The Final Degustation of Doctor Ernest Blenheim
by Andrew J McKiernan
Doctor Christopher Evans has been caught out by the Hospital Board and given an ultimatum. Either work with the hospital’s founder and biggest donor, Doctor Ernest Blenheim, or they’ll go to the media with everything they have. But when Evans meets Blenheim and is forced into satisfying the bloated old man’s grusome fetishes, Chris is no longer sure that he’s made the right choice.
