People fear the dark for a reason. Out in the darkness, the demons and horrors of our imagination become all too real. Of those brave enough to leave the light and plunge into the world's dark corners, none come back unchanged. Some don't come back at all. Four Corners Dark offers up four very different tales of places where the darkness lingers, tempting you to step into the unknown.
In these tales by storyteller William McNally, a group of Mexican immigrants place their trust in the wrong coyote, or human smuggler, only to find their very souls at risk. A huckster with the ability to escape trouble by jumping realities discovers he may have made one jump too many. Two proud new homeowners find out--too late--they share their property with the ghost of a vengeful witch, and, in "The Spinning Wheel," one man's love for his son leads to a decision that changes both their destinies.
It's easy to be brave in the light, protected by our warm, comforting electric light bulbs or the warmth of the sun. Only in the darkness do we discover the limits of our courage. Step out of the light, and into the stories of Four Corners Dark.

I didn't even finish, which is unusual but I couldn't get into it. I had no idea who most of the characters were. it was as though I started the book from the middle and am expected to just 'know' things. I'll try again at a later date and change my review if I see fit.
