In the early 1980s, Dell launched the Twilight series with the tag line “Where Darkness Begins” as a counterpoint to Bantam’s popular Dark Forces series. The series included 26 books and ran from 1982 to 1987. A complete list of books in the series, in the order they were published, is online here. Two notable books from this series are Nightmare Lake by Richard Laymon writing as Carl Laymon, and Richie Tankersley Cusik’s Evil on the Bayou, which was her first published novel before she went on to write YA thrillers for Archway and the Point Thriller line.

Great series! Have them all! This and the dark forces series were great!
Agree … some books were better than others of course, but it was pretty good overall!
Hi Christopher! Hi Kelly!
Firstly, this website is a dream come true for me Christopher, being a huge horror fan since I started reading way back in 1983. The information and the scans are really, really appreciated.
Kelly, I am also a huge Twilight – Where Darkness Begins series fan. I have some of the books within the series but am also missing some. I was wondering if you would be able to somehow scan some of them through to me (covers and contents)
so I could read the ones I haven’t read, please. They are very difficult to get a hold of physically here in Australia. Anything you could do would be greatly appreciated.
Take care, both of you.
Thanks for the information on this stuff. When I was a wee one and reading/buying this stuff, I cared nothing about Publishers or imprint lines. Now I’m curious but it’s hard to find as much easy to obtain information on some of this. Appreciated!
Hi there. I’m glad you found something useful Thanks for the visit. Come on back anytime!
