Ink Stains

A Dark Fiction Anthology

Volume 13

Available in print and eBook at your favorite online bookstore (October 29, 2019)

CHOICES. Every decision we make has consequences. It sets off a chain reaction that can lead to greatness, or—in the case of many characters in the stories on these pages—it can lead to pain, heartbreak, and even death.

Choices can come in moments of weakness, where emotions outpace logic, and we say or do things that we ultimately regret. They can come in the form of life or death options. Choices can lead to sacrifice or selfishness.

Authors Han Adcock, Diane Arrelle, Benjamin Blake, Victoria Dalpe, Alan Derosby, Arlen Feldman, Juliet Harper, Robert J. Mendenhall, Matthew Nichols, Samantha Pilecki, Matthew D. Saeman, Nicole Tanquary, and Zugay Trevino crafted stories in which people who, in a life-changing moment, make decisions with unforeseen consequences that change their lives and the lives of those around them. 

Ink Stains, a quarterly anthology published by Dark Alley Press, is about shining a stark light on the shadows of life, exploring those dimly lit corridors, and unearthing those long-buried secrets. We don’t believe good will always triumph over evil or that someone will always be around to save the day. Sometimes all we have is ourselves. And the stories that keep us turning the page.
