Summary

Shadows of a Nightmare is a short story collection to haunt your nightmares and end the world as you know it. 
These chilling tales are not ashamed of splashing blood across the page and crawling into the shadowy depths of horror: "The Rage", a grisly apocalyptic tale where a viral plague of anger overcomes humans; "Meat Market", about a killer monster who preys on gym-junkies to eat their well-toned flesh; "The Ghost", a harrowing supernatural tale about a man who is haunted by the world's most murderous spirit; "Alien Invasion", a story of extra-terrestrial beings taking over the world; "The Man in the Van" shows us what happens when an amateur sleuth tries to save his girlfriend from a vicious kidnapper; "Such is Life" asks what would happen if somebody went back in time to stop Ned Kelly and his gang from being killed at Glenrowan; plus many more. 
Are you ready to enter a labyrinth of fear and thrills? Scott G Gibson's Shadows of a Nightmare brings you spine-tingling stories to keep you awake at night. Read them if you dare.

    In Riverton Falls, a small New England town, globe-trotting bartender Celeste Fortune stands in her kitchen puzzling over last night’s frightening dream—a woman at a window, lilacs blowing in the breeze, someone’s hands tight around her neck. Celeste is sure the dream belongs to someone else. Perhaps she has finally broken through to the collective dreams of Dreamland cult. Hoping her therapist and cult leader will help her untangle it, she heads off into the cold November morning to her final appointment with him—or so she hopes. Her estranged fiancé has delivered an ultimatum: Leave the cult of Dreamers, or end their relationship for good.
    
    Instead of help, however, Celeste discovers her therapist dying in a pool of blood, skull stove in by his own healing crystal. His computer, containing the intimate dreams and secrets of half the town, is gone. Suspicion immediately falls on Celeste, known to be a rebellious member of his cult. To clear her name, Celeste enlists the help of her old friend, Gloria, and the two women set out to find the real culprit. But in the middle of their hunt, the stolen dreams seemingly come to life, terrifying the town—and Celeste and Gloria become the killer’s next target.

    In the darkest months of WWII, as the Nazi forces creep across Europe like the plague, SS-Gruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich uncovers a secret weapon with the potential to permanently change the course of the war. 
    Legend tells of a remote castle hidden deep within the Carpathian Mountains. Beneath it dwells an ancient evil: a master vampire, known only as the Count, and his six beautiful concubines. On Hitler's orders, Heydrich is tasked with finding them and bringing them back to Berlin. 
    However, while awakening vampires is one thing, controlling them is quite another, particularly ones that are ravenous and full of lust after years of slumber. After all, strong, healthy young soldiers provide such better sustenance—and fun—than malnourished prisoners or demoralized citizens. 
    Very soon, the Nazis will learn exactly who the true "master race" is. And to their horror, they will discover that in their blind grasping for domination, they may have just unleashed hell on earth.

    Let's face it. 
     
    About seventy-five percent of the world is covered in water - and of that water nearly ninety-seven percent of it can be found in the sea. Maritimers will tell you that there is a story for every wave that has ever washed upon the shoreline. 
     
    Here are seven of them. 
     
    "In the Dark and the Deep" offers a very haunting yarn of World War 2 convoy duty and a sailor who made and kept a terrible bargain. 
     
    "Harry's Mermaid" introduces you to a group of homeless men who catch something that MIGHT be a mermaid. If that doesn't tell you enough about this story just try and imagine what Steinbeck's CANNERY ROW would read like if it had been written by HP Lovecraft. 
     
    "I Know Why The Waters of the Sea Taste of Salt" is a tale of an Okinawa-based Japanese Air Force suicide pilot and his encounter with a sea monster - of sorts. 
     
    "Finbar's Story" is a dark fantasy tale of the deeper currents that eddy and flow within the deep quiet currents of a man's cold heart. 
     
    "The Woman Who Lost Her Tooth From Laughing Too Loudly At The Sea" is a quiet little fable of salt water, tears and regret. 
     
    "Between You-Know-Who and the Deep Dark Blue" is a story of the last bargain on earth. 
     
    This collection begins with a bargain and ends with a bargain - which sounds like a heck of a bargain to me.

    Federal Agents Selina Wolfe and Martin Crowe are called in to investigate a series of bizarre deaths in a small rural community.
