Product Description

Product Description

When Claire and James move into a beautiful Victorian home together, she soon discovers that he is being seduced by a secret from his past, one thought buried long ago.

"There is something haunting about "Dark Curtains," and I don't mean that it is simply a ghost story. It has a spookiness and mystery similar to stories like Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, but it is much more than that. It has a sensual quality and a feeling of sadness...which makes this story particularly engrossing. There is something deeper...that grabs you and keeps your interest up to the very last page." - Catherine Depasquale, Reviewer
(DARK CURTAINS is a short story selection from SCREAMSCAPES, a collection of horror by Evans Light, now available in paperback and ebook editions.)

3.0 out of 5 stars worth a read 9 Dec 2013

Well written, relatively simple story, well drawn characters, and yes I would look for something else by this author. No real surprises but I didn't skip any pages or get bored at all, enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good! 14 May 2013

I have had 'Dark Curtains' stored on my kindle for a few weeks now, and tonight I finally got around to reading it. I am glad that I did so!

The story itself is well written, and with a narrative that carries the plot along at a decent pace. This, in turn, allows the tension to build nicely as the reader ponders whether the houses new occupants will make it through to see a happy ending.

Dark Curtains is an imaginative haunted house story, with a difference. I would recommend it for anyone who likes tales about 'creepy old houses', and perhaps the strongest compliment I can pay to Evans Light, is to say that I cared about his main characters.

Incidentally, the book includes an alternative ending, but I much prefer the current finish.

Another very good short story. This one creeped me out a bit and had me shouting "nooooooooo" a few times.
