Amazon Original Stories - Dark Corners

Chris Schluep on October 04, 2018

Dark.JPGWith Halloween just around the corner, Amazon Original Stories has a line-up of popular authors writing short works to put you in the mood for the spooky season. The collection is called Dark Corners, and it features writers like Thriller Award winner Jennifer McMahon, best-seller Lisa Unger, and even Joyce Carol Oates. Each story is less than $2--but if you're a Prime member, they are free.

“Many of us grew up reading Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, and we wanted to rekindle that tradition of curling up with a short spooky tale for Halloween,” says Julia Sommerfeld, Editorial Director of Amazon Original Stories. “We also wanted to give readers – and listeners – a variety of entry points, from psychological to supernatural to funny, so we collaborated with a range of innovative writers across genres, all masterful storytellers that readers can count on to deliver the chills.”
