Review: It takes bold and daring authors to delve deep into the recesses of human fears. The authors featured in ‘Dark Futures’ have brought to life, kicking and screaming, the darkest of dark futures imaginable. As with all things, there must be balance and it’s healthy to explore the darkness without and within (with the trusty flashlight or candle by your side!) presented in these stories. Dystopian stories are on the rise and the ‘Dark Futures’ anthology will serve to whet your appetite.
