Darkling Smiles

A “chilling collection of eight tales… as scary as they are satisfying…” (Publisher’s Weekly)


A family that wins tablet computers at a deal to good to be believed…

A man who is sent across the universe, only to discover the most dangerous world in existence…

A hitman who realizes that his greatest contract is going to be himself…

A man whose child has been targeted by a cult, and must decide what he is willing to do to save those he loves…

Michaelbrent Collings brings you eight tales of people whose lives — and sometimes deaths — have fallen into decay.

Tales of the ordinary and the extraordinary, the outrageous and the banal. Tales of lives bright, lives dim.

Stories of a universe fallen, where every happiness has its opposite, and every smile will be inevitably darkled

Michaelbrent Collings brings you one of the “Best Reads of 2019” (Horror After Dark); a “Top 10 Read of 2019” (Sci-fi & Scary)…


All passengers, please prepare for departure…

An employee, a cop, and six passengers; a prisoner, a stowaway, and a madman.

These are the people waiting at the Lawton bus terminal.

 Mostly late-night travelers who want nothing more than to get to their destinations, and employees who want nothing more than to get through the graveyard shift.

But when a strange, otherworldly fog rolls in, the night changes to nightmare. Because something hides in the fog. Something powerful. Something strange. Something… inhuman.

Soon, those in the terminal have been cut off from the rest of the world. No phones, no computers. Just ten strangers in the terminal… and The Other.

The Other is the force in the mist. The Other is the thing that has captured them. And The Other wants to play a game.

The rules are simple:

  1. The people in the terminal must choose a single person from among them. That person will live. The rest will die.
  2. Anyone who attempts to leave the terminal before the final vote will die.
  3. The final vote… must be unanimous. 

A nightmare. And getting worse, because the best way to make a vote unanimous… is to kill the other voters. 

Welcome to the Terminal.

The Ridealong

The Ridealong



“I’ve left clues for you, and clues for the police.
They’ll be searching for you. The evidence at the scene of Officer Knight’s death is enough to send you both to jail.”

“Who am I searching for?”

The Voice laughs. That strange, dangerous laugh. “Me, of course.”


It was supposed to be just one more ridealong, a night when high schooler Melissa Latham accompanies her father on his patrol. But when a psychotic killer targets them for a wicked game, the night turns into a high-speed chase where there is no prize for second place.

They have to find a killer before he murders the next one of their friends.

They have to find a killer before they are caught and charged for the murder of the men he’s already killed.

They have to find a killer… before he finds them.
