Uncomfortably Dark

Uncomfortably Dark serves as a conduit to inspire my readers, to keep them informed, and to share with my loyal readers what makes me cringe in this dark and uncomfortable world. So, find a dark corner, pull up a chair and light your candle.  Let's get uncomfortable.

This week Ruthann Jagge takes on the Dark Dozen. Book review of The Best of Indie Horror-Christmas Horror by Kevin Kennedy!
