Nightfire Books, a new horror imprint from Tor Books, is proud to present 35 audio-only horror short stories showcasing the breadth of talent in today's field.

Theresa DeLucci, editor of Come Join Us By the Fire, says, “We wanted this long list of stories to showcase the scope of modern horror, from the cosmic and Lovecraftian, the beloved undead tropes of zombies, ghosts, and slashers, to the more uncanny and internal terrors of isolation, lost love, aging, and one of the briefest, most distressing alien abduction stories you’ll ever hear (‘No Matter Which Way We Turned’ by 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Brian Evenson.)”

The authors also reflect the diversity of horror as a field, with selections from horror grandmasters such as Joe R. Lansdale; New York Times bestsellers like Richard Kadrey and Victor LaValle; exciting new voices including recent Bram Stoker Award winner Gwendolyn Kiste (The Rust Maidens), Cassandra Khaw, and Michael Wehunt; and literary crossover stars such as Carmen Maria Machado (Her Body and Other Parties), National Book Award finalist and winner of the the Lambda Literary Award for Lesbian Fiction.

There's something for every listener, so come join us by the fire and hear tales not to tell against the dark... but to embrace it.
