Dark Alley Press

Dark Alley Press is an imprint of Vagabondage Press, LLC., dedicated to providing intelligent, imaginative, and thrilling horror and dark fiction in both print and digital formats.

If you are looking for rainbows and puppies, happily ever afters and all is wells, you have made a wrong turn. Dark Alley Press specializes in the gritter side of fiction. Life isn’t all sunshine and unicorns. Sometimes it is filled with demons, real and imagined.

Our titles range from a stark look at the darker side of life to steampunk adventures to supernatural tales to psychological thrillers that will have you sleeping with the lights on.

Our authors tackle everything from child abuse and drug addiction to hauntings, possessions and slow slips into sanity, both real and imagined.

We are not about feel-good stories (though some of our characters do survive the night, and of course, some do not). We are about shining a stark light on the shadows of life, exploring those dimly lit corridors, and unearthing those long-buried secrets. We are about examining the human existence and the human psyche in its raw, delicate and dangerous state. We don’t shy away from controversy, nor do we believe good will always triumph over evil or that someone will always be around to save the day.

Sometimes all we have is ourselves.

And the books that keep us turning the page.
