I love nightmares. Sleep is too much like death for my liking, but a good nightmare can make you feel alive. Nightmares have a reality that regular dreams can’t provide. As in real life, there is no escape except for death. There is no refuge in the knowledge that you are dreaming. While your flesh body twists and sweats in bed, you run, fight, kill, and die, and then you wake up and take a welcome breath of air. You open your eyes to a brighter world, grateful just to have your body intact.
Yeah, nothing hits the spot like a good nightmare.
This website is many things, because I have a mind that won’t sit still, but its central mission concerns horror fiction – the nightmare made flesh. My posts may be random and irregular at times, but I promise I will always be here in my happy, dark corner of the internet, writing and working and nightmaring, so that I can share with you the gift of fear.
So read, and let my nightmares become yours.
