Evening everyone Don P here with a review of Library of Nightmares an anthology written by Ray Scrivener. Here we have 15 stories wrapped up in a fitting book cover all filled with nightmarish tales of betrayal, loss, unnatural greed and hopelessness. From monsters to serial killers, no one is safe from Ray's pen with clear and ominous descriptions of terror. One of my favorite stories is the exoplanet where the story takes you far into the depths of space and deep into the pit of humanity.
To anyone who wishes to read this book, strap in because you're in for thrilling tales and as the title says, Nightmares.
After reading some not-so-stellar horror shorts this was an absolute delight. The stories are tightly written and imaginative, none of them are of the same theme. I would gladly read a full-length novel by this author.
Bravo!! I loved every story in this book, but I REALLY got a huge laugh from the final tale, "The End." It made me wonder if it was possible that an authors characters COULD come to life and get their revenge. If so, then a lot of writers are in for a BIG surprise!!! Keep writing, Ray Scrivener, and I will keep reading!!!☺👏 Also, I really liked the artwork... Did you do them yourself?
This collection has had me coming back for "just one more" chapter all day. The author uses such vivid imagery without overdoing it. They are really unique plots too, compared to most horror these days. Each story is the perfect length for me.
Thank you Mr. Ray Scrivener for this collection of some truly scary stories. I know everyone wants to know which is the best, but what tickles my fear meter may mean nothing to you and vice versa, so I can’t say. From my perspective some that I read at night, I do wish I had not and others were just as frightful during the day. But there were no stories I could put down once I had started them. Thank you again for the nightmares and the constant need to be looking over my shoulder during the daylight hours.
I really enjoyed this book and I read it in one sitting. The writing is excellent and each story is different, unique, and creepy with a twist to the endings. I have to say that the last story was my absolute favorite. I won't give anything away except to say that it was the most unique and definitely ironic in its premise. I've never read a story quite like it. BTW, someone very familiar gets some epic payback in the end.
Really good stories overall. Some of the endings were too simple for the detailed beginnings that were set up. The magician story's ending was laughable. The last story was creative; meta stories are always interesting.
