Daylight Dims concept first came about in 2006 while Editor Kristopher Mallory was listening to one of his favorite bands, tool. During the title track of tool's fourth studio album 10,000 days, Kris heard the phase mentioned in a lyric and thought that it would be a great title for a horror book.
The concept was always at the back of Kris' mind, but it wasn't until late 2012 when he really begin wondering what it could be. J. W. Zulauf came onboard to help Kris realize the best possible use would be a halloween themed, literary horror anthology designed to showcase great writing and storytelling.
Submissions formally opened to the general public through Submittable.com in February 2012 , and stayed open through July 30, 2012.
By the end of the submission period, we had received close to 200 entries from writers around the world. We announced our selections for the book around August 1st, 2013.
We brought on artists and assigned them to the stories based on what we thought they could bring out in the work. We also partnered up with Craig Grosheck, audio producer, and owner of chillingtalesfordarknights.com to present the audio version of Daylight Dims.
