Dark Detectives


Dark Detectives, a 480-page, stand-alone collection of 18 tales of supernatural detective fiction will be released by Titan Books next month (17th March 2015), featuring stories from Neil Gaiman, Clive Barker, Kim Newman, Brian Lumley and Manly Wade Wellman and more.

Each tale features a supernatural sleuth whose mission it is to save the world from the forces of darkness such as Neil Gaiman’s Lawrence Talbot, Kim Newman’s eight-part story “Seven Stars” (pitting the Diogenes Club against an occult object with the power to ultimately annihilate mankind) and Clive Barker’s Harry D’Amour.

Each of these stories features supernatural detectives who specialize in protecting the world from the forces of darkness and are sure to captivate the imagination of fantasy and crime readers alike.

The anthology is edited by London-based Stephen Jones, a leading expert on horror and a prolific editor.
