PORTLAND, Ore., July 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The most ambitious project from award-winning Portland, Oregon based specialty publisher Dark Regions Press to date, I AM THE ABYSS, is a new fiction anthology of horror and dark fantasy containing ten unique interpretations of the underworld by ten different authors. The Kickstarter campaign launch date is now official: Tuesday, August 11th 2015.

Kiernan, Steve Rasnic Tem, Michael Marshall Smith, Jeffrey Thomas, Reggie Oliver, Kealan Patrick Burke and three more bestselling authors of horror and dark fantasy.
Award-winning artist Les Edwards is creating an original two-page panoramic color spread to precede each story, giving us a window into each respective underworld.

I AM THE ABYSS will be printed in a unique 8"x8" size, presenting the original color artwork by Les Edwards in sixteen stunning inches across both pages. The book will be offered in two unique signed limited hardcover editions: Your Heart is Black and I Am Gateway.
