“Taaqtumi” is an Inuktitut word that means “in the dark”—and these spine-tingling horror stories by Northern writers show just how dangerous darkness can be. A family clinging to survival out on the tundra after a vicious zombie virus. A door that beckons, waiting to unleash the terror behind it. A post-apocalyptic community in the far North where things aren’t quite what they seem. With chilling tales from award-winning authors Richard Van Camp, Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley, Aviaq Johnston, and others, this collection will thrill and entertain even the most seasoned horror fan.
A Note From the Publisher
Ages- 16+ This is an adult book with high teen interest.
"Unlike some horror anthologies that resuscitate generic tales with contemporary characters or bolster them with updated settings, readers will find that this compilation, whose title translates from Inuktitut as "in the dark," could only emerge from the Arctic, with its unique places, peoples, and languages. . . Even seasoned readers of this genre may find themselves afraid of the dark.Guaranteed to chill the spine and tremble readers to the core."-Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW
