A few years ago writer Tennessee Jones published a collection of short stories based on the songs on the Nebraska album. Now a somewhat similar project has seen the light of day. This time a number of writers have each contributed a horror, fantasy or suspense story inspired by Springsteen song title of their own choice. The collection is called Darkness on the Edge (there is that Darkness theme again) and is edited by Harrison Howe. Song titles that inspired the stories include "Thunder Road", "I'm on Fire", "My Father's House", "Candy's Room", "Streets of Philadelphia", "Darkness on the Edge of Town" and "Adam Raised a Cain", and the authors who took part in the project include T.M. Wright, Tom Piccirilli, Peter Abrahams, Gary Braunbeck, Sarah Langan, James A. Moore, Elizabeth Massie, Nancy Kilpatrick and Lee Thomas. Read more on PS Publishing's website. You'll have to scroll down to find the book, which comes in a regular edition and a signed edition. Should make for an interesting summer read if you can spare the money.
