All of the stories in Sleepless Nights are unique and well crafted. No matter what you are afraid of, you are sure to find at least one story inside that will deliver on the promise of insomnia. But there is more to this collection of horror stories than interesting plots, creative monsters, and jarring twists - though this collection has all of that and more.
Wade's writing makes it easy to inhabit the characters telling these stories, and not a single one of them feels lazy. The voice of each story pulls you in, causing you to relate to people who make decisions you're sure you never would in situations you're sure you would never be in. But then you start to empathize, or you learn the full scope of a situation, and it makes you question yourself. Then you think back to situations you've been in, or that friends have been in, that are even marginally related to the story you are reading and you wonder...what if that actually happened?
These stories feel real, and some of them will leave you in a state of dreadful contemplation long after you've finished them. Even the most rational grown up will experience moments of intense belief where the horrors stop being stories. Every sound will break your concentration and send the hairs on your back standing in chilling attention. And there will be moments, however brief they may be, when you will fully believe...in the monsters, the stories, in all of it.
Inspiring the fear and belief of childhood is one of the hardest things in the world to do, but Sleepless Nights makes it seem easy.
Tobias Wade is not only a superb horror writer...he's also one hell of a magician.

It’s not very clear, but this is actually a collection of 4 different books, each of which are a collection of several stories. I mostly got this to read 53 Sleepless Nights, which I couldn’t find a standalone copy anywhere, but the fact that it came with the other books is a nice surprise.
Here are some quick thoughts on the individual books:
* 51 was my favorite because it’s the most well rounded and interesting.
* 52 kind of loses a little bit of luster and isn’t as memorable, but it’s definitely worth a read.
* I’m about halfway through 53, but I would say it’s better than 52 so far. Still not as good as 51 (yet), but it’s another excellent entry in his Sleepless Nights series.
* Haven’t started the fourth book yet.
Overall - I love it. The stories are the perfect length. The best part is that it’s a phenomenal value. I paid $6 for the Kindle version, and I think that would’ve been a steal for even just one of the Sleepless Nights books, let alone all three of them plus a bonus book. Highly recommended for any fan of flash fiction.
In addition there were numerous grammatical errors (disagreement of number and gender of nouns and verbs, incorrect usage of nominative and objective case pronouns, incorrect usage of words - the word "vicious" was used when it was obvious the word should have been "viscous."
All of the above faults should have been eliminated by better editing.
In addition, a large number of these stories (all told in the first person) either seemed to rely on the gimmick of not clarifying whether the story was about something supernatural or rather that the person telling the story was delusional and/or insane. Used occasionally, this might be an interesting twist but it was extremely overused. The alternative explanation is that the author was simply vague and ambiguous in telling the story. In either case, it was very dissatisfying.
I cannot recommend these stories as anything interesting to read.
Honestly, the only negative thing I can really say about this book is that another editing pass or two wouldn't hurt. (Some words are repeated, others are homophones of the correct word, like waste/waist, and there's one story that somehow got spliced together with the one before it.) Overall though, great read!
