Witches, ghosts, shape-shifters and vampire rats are some of the creatures that reign within these pages. Authors included are: Scott Nicholson, Rhonda Hopkins, Marty Young, Cate Dean, Tamara Ward, Meredith Bond, Catie Rhodes, Greg Carrico, Mitzi Flyte, Natalie G. Owens, *lizzie starr and Stacey Joy Netzel.


From Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Flesh Eaters and Mutated: “Tales From The Mist is one of those rare anthologies that gets it right from the first story to the last. It’s a magnificent feast of horror from some of the most assured voices working today. From cold-blooded tales of revenge to Faustian bargains to terrifying journeys into the dark corners of our world, these stories will make the shivers climb your back.”

From TW Brown, author of Dead: The Ugly Beginning: “To have a collection assembled by such a talented group of authors makes this THE anthology to own if you are a fan of horror.”

From Bill Hopkins, Author of Courting Murder: “I’ve grown up loving to be scared. Thus, when I had a chance to read Tales From The Mist, I jumped at the chance and jumped when I read the stories. All these stories are worth your while…”

Blurb for Rhonda’s story, The Consuming:

Serena knows her late uncle wasn’t crazy. So when she inherits his sprawling Carolina mansion and leaves the big city to restore both his home and his name, she uncovers a mystery that could cost much more than her sanity. As the house slowly reveals its dark secrets, and the extent of her peril becomes evident, she’ll settle for escaping with her life—if it isn’t already too late.

What reviewers have to say about The Consuming:

“The Consuming by Rhonda Hopkins is the perfect example of gothic horror…”

“My personal favorites were The Consuming, by Rhonda Hopkins, a great creepy haunting story…”

“…Rhonda Hopkins The Consuming had me turning on all the lights in the house and checking behind doors.”

“The Consuming by Rhonda Hopkins is the literary version of what films like Paranormal Activity tried to be. This has the bumps in the night flying off the page.”

“…Rhonda Hopkins story The Consuming made me wonder if my own house held secrets I had yet to discover.”

“The Consuming by Rhonda Hopkins had a chilling Hitchcock feel…”

“I’ve got to give kudos to a couple that really sent ice spiders dancing down my spine. Rhonda Hopkins  in “The Consuming” places her character (Serena) in one of my favorite subgenres of horror: The haunted house. Naturally, the things that go bump in the night (and also the day) frightened me, but then the real horror of the story arrives.”
