AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Black Beacon Books presents an anthology of dark tales about lighthouses and beacons. This unique book offers you, the most daring of readers, fourteen original stories of horror, mystery, suspense, and adventure. Within these pages lurk monsters from the depths of the seas and the far reaches of the cosmos. There are murders to solve, hauntings to investigate, and loved ones to be rescued. There are tales of hidden treasure, timeless curses, and ancient orders. Seafarers face ferocious storms while families fall apart and lighthouse keepers lose their sanity. The storm is coming, so batten down the hatches and let Lighthouses guide you into the darkness.'

'Australia's most powerful lighthouse sits on a salt-dusted headland at Cape Byron, on the mainland's easternmost tip. Since 1901, its silver beam has been beloved by the wild things living on the headland and in the waters of the bay, and by the people of the town itself. When the lighthouse decides it can no longer relate to the ships which now pass without ever visiting the once busy little port, it switches itself off... and issues the townsfolk with an ultimatum.'
