Dave Barnett lives on the outskirts of Orlando, Florida with his blind dachshund named Chauncey. During the day he works as a graphic designer for his Fat Cat Design company designing books for lots of small press publishers. At night he becomes DJ L.D. and runs Necropolis, a long-running industrial / EBM / synthpop / electro night at The Independent Bar in downtown Orlando.
Somewhere in there he has managed to run Necro Publications for the past 17 years, publishing some of the best names in modern horror: Edward Lee, Charlee Jacob, Gerard Houarner, Mehitobel Wilson, Jeffrey Thomas, Patrick Lestewka and dozens of others in various anthologies.
Dave has been published in a couple of the Shivers anthologies from Cemetery Dance Publications. He also has a story in the two-author chapbook The Baby along with Edward Lee. His collection, Dead Souls, came out form from Shocklines Press in 2004 and at least a couple of people seemed to like it.
The Fallen: Book 1 is the first in what will hopefully be a long series books containing tales about angels and demons that will finally come together (fingers crossed) in one climatic battle for Heaven.
INTO THE DARKNESS was first published as a magazine in the mid-1990s by Necro Publications. Necro moved on to focus on books, but we’ve now resurrected Into the Darkness in this all-new anthology series of dark, brutal, unrelenting horror fiction from new and established authors alike. We hope you enjoy reading the series as much as we enjoy finding new voices in modern horror.
A grade-school genius who longs to teach his bullying classmates a few things about life.
A picture-perfect family with a horrifying secret bubbling beneath the surface.
A serial killer who finds his greatest enemy in the most unlikely of places.
A small-town veterinarian who finds herself at war with an unstoppable killing machine.
A zombie who learns the real definition of having a bad day.
David G Barnett offers up the beginning of what will hopefully be a long series of novellas and shorts centered around the battle for heaven. These first three tales are fast-paced, funny, raunchy and poignant. Barnett's world comes to life with horribly flawed characters, abominable creatures and visions of Heaven and Hell that you will like or hate, but won't soon forget.
