The Mirror of Night cover

If one were to cite the most memorable individual stories from the great anthologies of the last decade; the stories that stretched the envelope of contemporary horror, the truly dark and gritty tales that stayed long with the reader, the name of Roberta Lannes would be invoked frequently.

For readers as yet unfamiliar with Ms Lannes' work; be prepared for a disquieting journey into the dark places of the human psyche. Collected here are such well-known pieces as "Apostate in Denim", "Precious", and "I Walk Alone". Over 30,000 words of Ms Lannes' best-known short stories are included herein. To make this debut collection a true cornerstone volume in any collection of extreme fiction, Ms Lannes has written over 30,000 words of new material especially for this collection.

Noted author Harlan Ellison has written a short (non)-introduction to the book. (Please note: as both author and publisher concur with the points raised in Mr Ellison's short essay, this edition of The Mirror of Night is signed only by the author). Ms Lannes has provided the cover artwork. The book layout and design are by noted typographer Dave Barnett of Necro Publications.
