Movie Anthology Reel Dark Cover, Contents Revealed

From Editor L. Andrew Cooper (with Pamela Turner) comes the news that REEL DARK (cf. April 17, March 24, 13) is now listed on Amazon, albeit perhaps not physically available until its debut at World Horror Con later this week.  To quote fromReel Dark COVER 050415png the back cover, “Welcome to a macabre cinema for the imagination, to screenings of twisted tales projected not on a movie screen but on the page.  In REEL DARK you’ll find stories and poems by authors ranging from new voices to bestsellers to Bram Stoker Award finalists.  From the battle for recognition between a child actress and a vengeful, long-forgotten film star in ‘Whatever Happened to Peggy . . . Who?’ to a madman controlling a student à la The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari in ‘Caligarisme,’ to a hapless Dreamist, whose talent propels him into a nightmare of jealousy and revenge in ‘The Dreamist,’ the authors have created worlds filled with madness, twisted desires, and broken dreams.  . . .  As David Lynch puts it, ‘This whole world is wild at heart and weird on top.’  As Karen Head writes in her poem responding to Lynch, ‘In the movies/ everything is illusion.’  But in a world with cameras everywhere, how do you know whether you’re in a movie?”

My own pup in this picture show is a saga of sisters, “Marcie and Her Sisters” to be precise, who may have had too much exposure to zombie films in their youth — but then again, who can believe what they say.  Nevertheless, we do now have an image of the cover and, outstripping Amazon, an almost official (word has it that there may still be two almost unnoticeable punctuation errors) table of contents for which one may see below:
