Here is The Dark #10 with four new stories.
The issue begins with "The Devil Under the Maison Blue" by Michael Wehunt. -+- Gillian is sitting on her roof, thinking about old Mr. Elling, a jazz musician who died a week ago. His ghost comes to her and tells her a story about his life and how he dealt with a problem similar to one she has. Nice, quite horror.
The second story is "The Canary" by Lisa L. Hannett. -+- Here's a strange version of coal mining, involving young girls and crowmen. Ell has let her boyfriend's brother have his way with her and regrets it. She plans to save her daughters from a similar fate. Strange.
The third story is "Self, Contained" by Kirstyn McDermott. -+- Concerned over local birds, Meredith sets a trap for a cat...and catches something else. Nice buildup of horror.
Last, we have "What Hands Like Ours Can Do" by Megan Arkenberg. -+- A woman is alone in her house when a stranger, who has some sort of fever, comes down the road. She performs a service for him. More to the story than that, but it's well-told and a good end for this excellent issue.
