The Nightmare by F.B. Hogan - Book Tour & Review


Book Blurb

I set the table for you, come sit.

I hope you enjoy my humble fare, a selection of only the darkest of delights. But make sure and pull your chair in closer to the hearth for the night falls and the wind blows wild muffling the sound of approaching footsteps. Something comes, something creeps ever closer. A nightmare thing.

Enter a dark place between fact and fiction.

On a cold winter’s night whilst crossing the frost covered field to fetch water, a child hears a sound on the air, an infant’s cry. But no baby awaits her hurried progress.

A pensioner rapidly losing her memory exists in a twilight world where only a lost love can bridge the gap between past and present.

A young man at a boutique music festival discovers more than romance in the fading forest.

Something travels the cosmos, a creature of nightmare and terror. A veiled medium sits at a table in a Victorian parlour waiting.

Amongst the lamb, a wolf harvests souls in a bid for promotion.

My Review
The Nightmare is a collection of short horror stories that will be sure to thrill and chill you. 
From a spooky well to a music festival, there's something within these pages that will delight fans of the genre.
I'm a big fan of short horror stories, so this collection was right up my alley. I enjoyed most of the stories in this book, although a couple weren't quite my cup of tea. That's to be expected, though, when you get a collection. Not every story will land, and that's okay.
I think my two favorites in this one were The Game and I've Got My Eye on You.
If you're looking for a new set of short horror stories to read, definitely give The Nightmare a go.
4 stars!
