The Darker Realms Fantasy Bundle, curated by Allyson Longueira: I vividly remember one of my first forays into a darker realm. It was a short story by Stephen King called "The Eyes of the Dragon." I remember it in part because I was so surprised it was a King story. I knew King as a horror writer. And, to be honest, I hated horror—or so I thought.

Ironically, it was another of King's short stories, "The Colorado Kid," that opened my eyes to what horror could be. Darkness comes in many forms—and many expressions.

The Darker Realms Fantasy StoryBundle explores just that.: the darkness at the heart of the unknown.
