Life is nothing if not constant change. And these changes force us to make terrifying choices that will lead us into either the light or the dark. Dusk is the tipping point where things go well or, as in this anthology, where they go very, very bad.
Suspended in Dusk II continues the legacy of editor Simon Dewar’s anthology series. Volume II includes the disturbing work of seventeen extremely diverse voices from the horror and speculative fiction genres.
— Teenage boys navigate the Dark Web where diabolical games of life and death await…
— A woman stalked by shadows gets answers she doesn’t want to hear…
— Ghost hunters commune with malevolent spirits seeking vengeance on the living…
— A family confronts a Maori legend that’s less myth and far more terrifying truth…
— A young man explores a love that continues to gnaw long after it’s gone…
— A group of adults encounter childhood fears that will not die…
— And so much more.

Praise for Suspended in Dusk II:
“Simon Dewar’s second installment of the series really delivers. This collection has thrown together a multitude of quality writing that begs to be read. There is darkness in the margins of each page, smudges of black ink threatening to swallow the reader when they aren’t expecting,” – Brian Bogart, Kendall Reviews
“Suspended in Dusk II grabs you by the throat from the very first story and does not let go. I honestly can’t overstate how good this anthology was. There are some very heavy topics in the stories but…not a single one is played merely for shock value or cheap emotion.” – Gracie Kat, Sci-Fi & Scary
“I appreciated the large amount of diversity in this book; from the foreword it became clear that individuals of all shapes of life were given the chance to contribute, and I feel that’s largely absent in anthologies these days.” – Red Lace Reviews
