Publisher's Summary

David Bain brings you five stories from the dark side of town. Horror doesn't just happen in a creaking haunted house; the paranormal and occult can creep into every corner of the United States' urban landscape. These short stories of dark fantasy bring the metaphysical mystery of everything from demons to serial killers to your back door....

"Black Cab": The black cabs snatching citizens off the Chicago sidewalk were just an urban myth - until the day Bennie hailed one....

"The Little Guy": A story for the 99 percent. When Guy is fired, the belittling is literal.

"Phone Sex on the Nightside": A traveling salesman discovers the number in the back of the strange porno mag will redefine his definition of phone sex forever!

"Hellcat Prom Night": Some girls will go to sadistic lengths to have a perfect prom night...and some men don't know when to stop hitting on a stranger they don't even know....

"The Demon Wind": It's mayhem at a Modesto, California 7-11 when a customer comes in carrying a demon inside him.

"The Streetlight Filled with Flowers": The bum standing under the streetlight out in the parking lot only mutters nonsense - but might hold the keys to grand visions.

Not scary. Mildly horrifying.

Great narration, but the stories were only "meh" for me. They didn't get my pulse racing, it was more of a mild "Huh. Well that was creative" feeling. If you're into hardcore horror that really sets your teeth on edge, I wouldn't recommend this collection. Very mild.

Strange, interesting, grim, but almost charming

Nightmares is a bit misleading. This collection or short stories is less proper horror as much as it's a series of quirky tales.Some of them can be grim. The phone-sex story is like a more tongue-in-cheek version of a Clive Barker story. But all of them are creative and interesting. None of them feel like filler. The final story is almost beautiful. And most of them give some insight into human nature. While not amazing, if you want something creative and strange. Give it a shot. You might like it. It's definitely had real heart put into it.
