Day of Demons is a collection of powerful stories featuring the conflict of demons and humans over the course of a day.
Read how one woman’s inner-self awakens to unexpected and frightening consequences, or how a charismatic half-breed thief is forced to strike a deal with a pen-stealing imp. Read about a mother as she struggles to cope with a deadly, satanic bargain, and a sword-wielding anti-hero as he returns out of exile to face his demonic fate.
Nine stories, nine demons, nine authors. From fantasy, to horror, to contemporary fiction, this anthology will fright, delight and grip you with tales of daring-do, danger and of course — demons.

“…worth a look, especially if you like your short stories with a twist of sulphur.”- Ed Fortune, Starburst Magazine.
“Colin F. Barnes certainly has a knack for picking contributors that work well together. This anthology marks another solid outing from Anachron Press. The mixture of horror, fantasy and suspense mean there is something for everyone to enjoy.” — Paul Holmes, The Eloquent Page
“Each story provided a fresh perspective and writing style whilst still knitting together as a single entity. Colin F. Barnes is a strong advocate of gender balance in genre. This is another of his publications that shows why women should be considered for publication and reading more often than they appear to be at the moment.” – Tony Lane, Tony’s Thoughts
“Each author has an individual voice, there is no repetition of style, and each author presents a different view as to what a demon is and can do. But one thing each story has is a tale about the deviousness of demons and the culpability of humans. This a great read with some interesting ideas and promising authors who I’d like to hear more from.” – Phil Norris
