From Dark Places is a collection of dark short stories. Abby finds a creative solution to her father’s problems. Ben makes a pact with the Devil for a new Mum. Katie is pursued by unrelenting voices. John just found his colleague’s hand in a strange girl’s lap. Jarvis is falling apart on his wedding day. Rosalind comes face-to-face with her number one fan. And that is just the beginning.

First Line

Katie carried a small claw hammer and seven galvanised box nails wrapped in a handkerchief.


Every tale in this collection is delightful, spooky, creepy. Emma Newman is a master at saying just enough to make your own imagination give you goosebumps, and her characters are clear and well-defined. -- Gracie Motley

Newman is unafraid to explore the darker side of fiction and, by extension, life. The stories are by turns touching and funny and heartwarming. And dark. In places very, very dark. Leave the light on. -- Dan Powell, 2010 Yeovil Literary Prize winner

Gods, demons and angels inhabit these pages, as much at home as the cheating spouses, spurned lovers and ugly, foul-mouthed orphans. Newman is a powerful emerging voice in dark fiction. I’ll be watching out for more of her stuff. You should too. -- Alan Baxter , Author of ‘RealmShift’ and ‘MageSign’
