“Fading Light is a perfect example of a well constructed anthology. A great unifying theme, talented authors, and more than two dozen short stories to sink your teeth into. Reading this reminded me of boyhood nights spent curled up in front of the television watching The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, or The Outer Limits, which I’m sure was exactly the point. Enjoy it on a stormy night…but be sure to leave the lights on and the doors locked.” ~ Michael Sullivan, author of the Riyria Revelations
“With its Stellar lineup of authors and the great premise that gives them room to weave their magic, Fading Light accomplishes what far too many fail to: it stands out from the pack as something unique, terrifying, and wholly readable from first pages to last.” ~ Bryan Hall, author of The Southern Hauntings Saga and Containment Room 7.
“Tim Marquitz has collected an extraordinary array of bleak and thrilling stories from some of the best writers in the game and a crop of marvelous newcomers with Fading Light. Read it before the darkness arrives and the world ends!” ~ Ed Kurtz, author of Bleed and Control
