Nightmare Fuel: Volume 1
Rated 4.00/5 based
on 2 reviews
Nightmare Fuel is twenty short horror fictions, plucked from the mind of the author in a wild attempt to stave off an annual influx of sleep-deprivation-inducing nightmares. From werewolves to walking statues to the question of humanity in tiny alien cephalapods, there's fuel aplenty for your own nightmares from under the bed. More
This began several years ago, when Andrea started having nightmares. Not that she'd never had nightmares before, mind you - but she'd never had them one on top of another, ceaselessly, all night and every night for days and sometimes weeks on end. It recurred the next year, and the year after that.
It happened regularly enough that she began to refer to the fall as Nightmare Season.
Then at the beginning of Summer 2011 Google opened the invite-only beta of Google+. Andrea was invited, joined (as Bliss Morgan), and managed to meet some really great people, and witness them doing some interesting things. In September, with Nightmare Season looming, she decided to (and posted that she would) write a piece of short horror fiction every day in October, in the hopes that getting the demons out of my head and onto a page or screen where she could see them would help alleviate Nightmare Season somewhat.
People thought this was a fantastic idea.
People wanted to join in.
She welcomed anybody who wanted to participate in any capacity, and set it up that she would post an inspirational image each morning, and anybody so inclined had all day to write something and post it. She was the only one that she felt had to post something every day. She ran it from October 1 to October 31. She had folks who wanted to write, some who just wanted to read and comment, and several who wanted to provide photography or other images.
From that project, she ended up with many short fictions, which she pared down to these fine twenty. She hopes that you enjoy the Nightmares.
