"not what I expected but... entertaining"
So what do we have? A husband who glimpses his sinister future; a man haunted by his vivid nightmares; homicidal maniacs; creatures from the deep depths of the ocean, and a bullied child who fights back. We also drop in on an auditor on the brink of insanity; a young girl haunted by her dead best friend; a surgeon on a bloody, vengeful mission; a tale of the undead, and a vengeful clown.
"Short on originality/wrap-ups"
Thirteen tales of original terror penned in the dead of the night with only the glow of a computer for light. The collection of short stories runs the gamut of horror. Within its bloody minutes you will find a slasher clown, a blood red church, a little girl locked in a closet, a haunted sex doll, etc. 13 Nightmares is a fine collection of terror for the short story lover, but be warned. Some of these stores are not for the faint of heart. Do you dare enter a world where the supernatural, the macabre, and the horrific collide?
"Couldn't stop listening..."
Editors Randy Chandler and Cheryl Mullenax put the call out to horror writers and editors of extreme stories, the hardcore stuff that breaks boundaries and trashes taboos, the transgressive tales you can't "unread" (as Chuck Palahniuk says). Some of the stories you'll find here are loaded with very graphic descriptions of violence, sex, and depravities, while others may contain only one shocking moment of brutality. In others, the hardcore aspect may be less graphic and subtler than you might expect.
"Absolutely quality and chilling short stories"
This unusual collection of true ghost stories and hauntings has been put together by Simon B Murik, who is the son of a long line of mediums and sensitives originally from Eastern Europe. Many of the stories come from his own experiences, while others have been contributed by family members and those who have shared paranormal experiences and unexplained phenomenon with him.
The Ouija board continues to be a popular means of entertainment for a wide variety of people: paranormal thrill-seekers, adventurous adolescents, temperamental teens, tipsy party guests, and even curious skeptics. Most of the time, those who dabble with the Ouija experience nothing out of the ordinary. But many times that's not the case. And many times that extraordinary experience isn't just strange, but downright awful.
"Interesting, with some scary parts!"
The Nameless Dark debuts a major new voice in contemporary weird fiction. Within these minutes, you'll find whispers of the familiar ghosts of the classic pulps - Lovecraft, Bradbury, Smith - blended with Grau's uniquely macabre, witty storytelling, securing his place at the table amid this current Renaissance of literary horror.
Do you like stories with a twist? Stories that run just a little different? Odd Tales is full of little twists and unusual stories. Fans of the supernatural and the weird will find this anthology to be just what they are looking for. Ghosts, skeletons, fey creatures, haunted guitars, and even time travel have their places in this collection of short stories from the wonderfully warped mind of Jeffrey Dean Doty.
In these six assembled tales of terror, you will witness how an act of unspeakable evil dooms the crew of a crashed German bomber in "Emet." A rookie trucker takes to a dangerous mountain pass and comes face to face with the legend of "The Highwayman." A suicidal woman who has lost her family and her arm experiences a bizarre and terrifying form of "Phantom Pain." An online gamer experiences horror when he is granted the ability to play his favorite game in "God Mode."
After a bizarre and disturbing incident at the funeral of matriarch Marian Savage, the McCray and Savage families look forward to a restful and relaxing summer at Beldame, on Alabama's Gulf Coast, where three Victorian houses loom over the shimmering beach. Two of the houses are habitable, while the third is slowly and mysteriously being buried beneath an enormous dune of blindingly white sand. But though long uninhabited, the third house is not empty. Inside, something deadly lies in wait.
"Amazing novel by an all but forgotten author."
Women write horror and have written it since before Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein. This anthology highlights the fact that women write great horror and kills the fallacy that they aren't in some way up to standard. They are. Hear stories by Elizabeth Massie, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Lucy Taylor, and a plethora of other great writers as they work on your nerves, get inside your head, and bang out some of the scariest tales written today. Lock the door and windows, put on a light, and remember, it's not real.
Psychotic killers, devious ghosts, alien monsters, howling storms, undead creatures, and other dark forces haunt the highways and the truckers who drive them in these 18 chilling tales. A ghostly voice on a trucker's CB radio knows more about his life than it should.... Two drivers find their cargo gives them inhuman appetites.... A boy in a truck stop encounters a supernatural force that threatens to destroy the world.... The hypnotic singing lulling a driver to sleep might not be coming from the tires....
"Surprising for horror stories"
Ben and Marian Rolfe are desperate to escape a stifling summer in their tiny Brooklyn apartment, so when they get the chance to rent a mansion in upstate New York for the entire summer for only $900, it's an offer that's too good to refuse. There's only one catch: behind a strange and intricately carved door in a distant wing of the house lives elderly Mrs. Allardyce, and the Rolfes will be responsible for preparing her meals. But Mrs. Allardyce never seems to emerge from her room, and it soon becomes clear that something weird and terrifying is happening in the house.
