Even S. T. Joshi exclaimed that he’d never read anything like “Phoenix on the Orange River”, the final story in A Darke Phantastique. Written by Tom Conoboy, it begins:   Once, on a moonlit road, quiet and warm, Death trundled by with a handcart bearing the belongings of my father.

Author Spotlight: J. C. Koch

Continuing with our spotlight on contributors to A Darke Phantastique, we come to J. C. Koch and her story “Outsiders”. The beginning is eerie: I have lived in darkness for so long.

Sam Gafford’s NAMELESS WORDS: Upon Further Examination
