Free Horror Audiobooks from New Imprint Nightfire Dial up the Spookiness

Gearing up for Halloween? Come Join Us by the Fire, from new imprint Nightfire, is an audio-only horror anthology of short stories, and like any good campfire tale, it’s free. There are 35 titles available for download.

Nightfire is a new horror imprint that is producing this series in partnership with Google Play Books, per Tor. Nightfire is joining Tor, Forge, Tor Teen & Starscape as part of Tom Doherty Associates. Theresa DeLucci, editor of Come Join Us by the Fire and Senior Associate Director of Marketing at Nightfire, said of curating the project that “we wanted this long list of stories to showcase the scope of modern horror.” There’s thus a fright for every palate on the list, ranging from zombies and ghosts to more internal horrors such as loss and isolation.

This project was created with the intention of exposing readers to the richly talented authors writing and scaring readers in the horror genre. Some bestselling authors on the list include China Miéville, Chuck Wendig, Richard Kadrey and Victor LaValle; Shirley Jackson Award winners Paul Tremblay (The Cabin at the End of the World), Priya Sharma (All the Fabulous Beasts) and Sam J. Miller (Blackfish City); Nebula Award winners Brooke Bolander, Alyssa Wong and Kij Johnson; and more.
