Synopsis[edit | edit source]
FROM DUSK UNTIL DAWN
December — sure, 'tis the season and all that, but evil generally isn't up for a holiday. And December 21 — well, that's usually the winter solstice.

Now, in the first-ever Angel short story collection, follow our gang hour by hour, evil by evil. From twilight to daylight, Angel, Cordelia, Wesley, Gunn and Fred have to keep the forces of darkness at bay — even when black magick has a head start...

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Production[edit | edit source]
- The Longest Night is the only of Angel short story anthology. Although the book is labeled as "Vol. 1", no further volumes were ever published.
- Writer Jeff Mariotte explained why the stories do not reference each other: "We didn't get to read each other's stories, we just knew a tiny bit about what would happen in the ones before and after ours. So, for instance, I mentioned in the very end of mine that Angel knew he had to go do some last-minute shopping. But we knew it wouldn't flow exactly right, because if it did then it would be a novel by a buncha different writers, and not a collection of short stories."
International titles[edit | edit source]
- French: Solstice d'Enfer (Solstice of Hell)
