Dark Reading for Halloween

There’s scary, and then there’s bone-chilling. I remember as a kid, sometimes I could watch an rated-R horror flick and laugh at it … then watch a g-rated episode of The Twilight Zone alone and creep around the house making sure nothing lurked behind the doors.

Nancy O. Greene’s Portraits in the Dark falls into that second category.

Portraits in the Dark is a slender collection of nine short stories examining the uncertainty, vulnerability, and darkness present in human nature and the world we live in. What it lacks in size it makes up for in substance.

Portraits won both the Editor’s Choice and Publisher’s Choice Awards from iUniverse, and some of the stories have placed in contests individually.

Find out why; read the reviews and more about the book on Nancy Greene’s website.
