"'Taaqtumi' is an Inuktitut word that means 'in the dark'--and these spine-tingling horror stories by Northern writers show just how dangerous darkness can be. A family clinging to survival out on the tundra after a vicious zombie virus. A door that beckons, waiting to unleash the terror behind it. A post-apocalyptic community in the far North where things aren't quite what they seem. These chilling tales from award-winning authors Richard Van Camp, Rachel and Sean Qitsualik-Tinsley, Aviaq Johnston, and others will thrill and entertain even the most seasoned horror fan" --Provided by publisher

Like so many anthologies, this one is a mixed bag, ranging from mediocre to, at best, decent. Unfortunately, it begins with the most banal stories, encouraging the reader to quit. If one manages the initial slog, it does improve. Even at a slim 163 pages, a few of these stories should have be cut. I will doubtlessly forget this book quickly, but on the bright side, I won't be missing much.
