Two brothers stumble upon a website so entrancing that it marks them for death. A murderous drifter wanders into the wrong bar on a snowy night. A lovesick executive rents a hideous creature bred to nibble his cares away.
They and others become victims of a mysterious stranger who lives in these mountains. His hand is fashioned from the oldest darkness man has ever known—the night sky. He is a trickster, a prankster, a demonic being who desires only to wreak casual violence on every person he meets. He’s about to offer you a bargain. Don’t trust him.
Arm of Darkness contains six short stories of horror. Three of those stories (shown below) are also sold separately.
