Welcome to the Nightside, the secret heart of London where it's always 3am and the creatures of the night congregate. If you're looking for a place to indulge the darker side of your nature, this collection of short stories from the Nightside is what you need.
Delve into ten macabre mysteries that shine a dim light into the neighbourhood's darkest corners, revealing things that refused to stay hidden - and to hell with the consequences.
Take a walk with some of the deadly and dangerous denizens of the Nightside, like Razor Eddie, Dead Boy and Larry Oblivion, who are about to encounter things even more inhuman and inhumane than they are.
And join John Taylor, the PI with a knack for finding lost things, as he confronts Sir Francis Varney, King of the Vampires, in a never-before-published novella-length adventure.
There may be nothing to be afraid of in the dark, but there's plenty to be afraid of in the Nightside ...

Simon R. Green's Nightside series is a delight from beginning to end... The Nightside books are, unashamedly, all about having a bloody good time reading works that have more than their fair share of "ics." Fantastic, comedic, sarcastic, caustic and heroic are just a few that spring to mind - SF Site
