Since then, we’ve published seven critically acclaimed anthologies, seven single author collections and five novels.

Single Author Collections:
Dark Arts began issuing single author collections specifically to bring Martin Mundt’s The Crawling Abattoir and The Dark Underbelly of Hymns back into print. We’ve since issued an original collection of Mundt classics in Synchronized Sleepwalking, and reissued four John Everson titles that had gone out of print.
Our first seven releases were a series of critically acclaimed anthologies featuring Jay Bonansinga, Jeff Strand, Sarah Pinborough, Christa Faust, JA Konrath, Gary Braunbeck, Robert Weinberg, Michael Marshall Smith and more.
