Dare to venture into darkness. Dare to step into the unknown. If you have the courage, you will find horrors beyond your imagination. In this nightmare world you will find punishment doled out from the grave, an art gallery whose painted horrors call out to you, and a portal to the fires of perdition. You will meet Old Gods who crave human flesh and a succubus witch in a fairytale of lust and degeneration. You will visit terrifying forests where the greenery hungers and an old barn where those familiar by day become monsters at night. Dare to read The Long Hour Before Light, a collection of the most terrifying short stories yet from author Ronald Joseph Scala.
