Through a Mirror, Darkly by @KevinBLucia

There are a lot more truths in the books we read, than we'd like to admit.

What if a book delves into the lives of the very town you live in? Reveals to you some personal stories of people you know? Or thought you knew.

Bookstore owner Kevin Ellison faces this truth when a mysterious book shows up in Through a Mirror, Darkly by Kevin Lucia.

Through a Mirror, Darkly is a Supernatural Thriller collection masked as a novel. With elements of mystery, suspense, and otherworldly horror, Through a Mirror, Darkly successfully delves into the worlds of Lovecraft, Grant, and the mysterious Carcosa.

Arcane Delights. Clifton Heights' premier rare and used bookstore. In it, new owner Kevin Ellison has inherited far more than a family legacy, for inside are tales that will amaze, astound, thrill...and terrify:

  • An ancient evil thirsty for lost souls.
  • A very different kind of taxi service with destinations not on any known map.
  • Three coins that grant the bearer's fondest wish,
  • and a father whose crippling grief gives birth to something dark and hungry.

Every town harbours secrets. Kevin Ellison is about to discover those that lurk in the shadows of Clifton Heights.


It's two in the afternoon when Cassie Tillman emerges from the store's backroom, wiping her hands. ARCANE DELIGHTS

I've enjoyed other collection of the author's short horror fiction set around Clifton Heights. Through a Mirror, Darkly is an enjoyable as other collections I've read by the author. The stories offers what I consider excellent examples of horror fiction. They are strange, sinister and many shades of darkness and a lot of fun.
