About this project

Darkling Around the World is a series of anthologies following Darkling - Lycan Valley's Horror Host - as she travels around the globe exploring the growing darkness of each country's culture, historic landmarks, creatures and other oddities.

In this first volume, Darkling takes us on a horrifying tour of strange, dark historic landmarks and creature encounters in a collection of horror stories set in Canada.

Creatures in Canada will contain 13 stories - one story for each Canadian Province or Territory - selected by Canadian collaborators James Pyne and Donna Marie West. In this anthology, you'll encounter terrifying, deadly, and evil creatures, some native to the area and others misplaced from their homelands. 

With our horror host Darkling leading the way, you'll tour through Canada - terrified and entertained - like never before.

Funds raised for this project will be used to pay the authors, send out contributor copies of the books, supply the rewards at the various levels and produce a quality book.

Any funds raised above the minimum amount will be used to add interior artwork to Creatures in Canada or for the next volume.  

Risks and challenges

As with any project, there are risks involved and delays may occur. We do not anticipate any delays in publication, however, this project is still in production and may be delayed due to difficulties in filling the stories for each Province or Territory, unexpected emergencies or other unforeseen circumstances. In the event of a publication delay, backers will be notified and kept up to date.
