Publisher's Summary

From the critically acclaimed author of Sea of Rust and Queen of the Dark Things comes a hair-raising collection of short fiction that illuminates the strange, humorous, fantastical, and downright diabolical that tantalize and terrorize us: demons, monsters, zombie dinosaurs, and Death itself.

In the novella "The Soul Thief’s Son", C. Robert Cargill returns to the terrain of the Queen of the Dark Things to continue the story of Colby Stevens...

A Triceratops and an Ankylosaurus join forces to survive a zombie apocalypse that may spell extinction for their kind in "Hell Creek"...

In a grand old building atop a crack in the world, an Iraq War veteran must serve a one-year term as a punisher of the damned condemned to consume the sins of others in the hope that one day he may find peace in "In a Clean, White Room" (co-authored with Scott Derrickson)...

In "The Town That Wasn’t Anymore", the village of Pine Hill Bluff loses its inhabitants one at a time as the angry dead return when night falls to steal the souls of the living...

And in the title story, "We Are Where the Nightmares Go", a little girl crawls through a glowing door beneath her bed and finds herself trapped in a nightmarish wonderland - a crucible of the fragments of children’s bad dreams.

These tales and four more are assembled here as testament to Cargill’s mastery of the phantasmagoric, making We Are Where the Nightmares Go and Other Stories a collection of unnerving horror and fantasy that will keep you up all night and haunt your waking dreams.

A few good stories

I enjoyed three stories out of the compilation which is why I gave the review that I did. Some of the stories are taken out from different books and that is very distracting because you aren’t immersed in the theme as you otherwise would be.

Strong start, weak finish

I absolutely loved most of this book...the first story was particularly strong. Unfortunately, the last story - and the longest - was absolutely horrific, but not in a way that you’re looking for. I mean it was seriously bad. And the worst part is that it wasn’t even congruous with the genre...it was...I don’t know what it was, but it wasn’t horror.
