Obsidian Tales is a compilation of short mystery stories with mystery, thriller, folklore tales, and diverse characters of color written by African American and Latinx authors. "Issue" is a story about thriller writer Morris White, taking the reader on the inspiration to his successful writing career becoming too...REAL. Tales like "A Week in the Life of Valerie Andrews" show what happens when a young woman takes the expression "curiosity killed the cat" a bit too far. Authors Sadie Abdullah, Geraldine Hunter, Raphael Jackson, Rae James, Nann Mahon, and Kimberley Wiley have brought their stories to our "house of mystery." Pat Canterbury (The Armoire), Valjeanne Jeffers (Mona Livelong, Paranormal Detective), and L. Marie Wood (The Ever After; The Realm) come over from writing horror. Canterbury, Jeffers, and Wood were part of the Bram Stoker Award Finalist anthology Sycorax's Daughters.
