D&T Publishing proudly presents The Dire Circle. A horror anthology that takes a look at the real black zodiac. 

Most people know of the black zodiac as portrayed in the movie, Thirteen Ghosts. But, did you know that there is an actual black zodiac? The evil side of the zodiac circle we are so accustomed to. The evil side of the human creature.
