I’ve been waiting for a while release the table of contents for Suspended in Dusk 2 but all the contracts are in and my hands have been unshackled. There were a couple of changes to the line up. Unfortunately, Mercedes Yardley and Nikki Guerlain wont be joining us due to other commitments. I do very much hope to work with them both soon on future projects. As sad as that is, there are some fantastic new additions to the line up whose work I am thrilled to be including in the anthology.
So, without further ado, and in no particular order,…
Suspended in Dusk 2 – Table of Contents
- Introduction by Angela Slatter
- Deadman’s Road by Joe R. Lansdale
- The Mournful Cry of Owls by Christopher Golden

Editing continues apace and I’m looking forward to receiving some cover art soon, which I’ll no doubt share in due course!
This book features a few Easter eggs for readers too:
Mother of Shadows by Benjamin Knox is a continuation of the story from the original Suspended in Dusk anthology, A Keeper of Secrets. Ben and I worked hard to ensure it reads very fine as its own standalone tale, but readers of the first anthology should be enjoy the continuation of this story.
In what is becoming a Suspended in Dusk tradition, I’ve included a story which is dark yet also quite humorous, Nerine Dorman’s That Damned Cat.
Lastly, there are several fantastic art pieces by the incredibly talented artist Aaron Dries, which will appear exclusively in the paperback version of the anthology.
I am very happy with how this book is shaping up and I know there will be something for all horror readers and readers of dark fiction within these pages.
