Here's the official description of The Darkly Splendid Realm:
If you've felt eyes studying you from the shadows, it has seen you...
If crooked branches have rapped upon your window at night, it has summoned you...
If your dreams are plagued by half-glimpsed terrors, it has claimed you...
From one of the most gruesomely original voices in contemporary horror comes this book of thirteen nightmares. Richard Gavin will plunge you into underworlds of Hellish beauty; give you flight on Dread-Moths' wings; tend for you a thicket that blooms with feral children. More than a volume of horror tales, this collection offers visions of a realm whose splendours are as illuminating as they are dark.
