Dreams For the Dying by Adam Light

DREAMS FOR THE DYING is a collection that stands head and shoulders above most.

Inside you will find a wild variety of tales; there’s something here to please every reader. Some of these tales I’ve read before and some were completely new.

The stories that stood out the most for me were :

The Valley of the Dunes: Dating can be such a bore!

Vengeance by the Foot: Gross and funny all at once.

Serving Spirits: A tale of a loving protective father and a foul-mouthed, greed-filled jerk of a husband.

Panacea: This one nearly broke my heart. What wouldn’t you do to save someone you’ve been married to for decades? Oftentimes the good guys don’t win.

Almost all of the stories here were good, but the ones I listed above were great. I’ve been reading Adam’s work for some time now and will continue to do so. He brings variety, creativity and writing chops to the table and I’m always excited to see what he comes up with!

Thanks to Adam Light, Corpus Press and Erin Al-Mehairi for the paperback copy in exchange for my honest feedback. This is it!

Some refuse to fade, forever haunting dark corners of consciousness:

The dread of an approaching headlight on a deserted road . . .
Swirling black clouds claiming the sky, bringing death and madness . . .
The cabin of a trucker's rig, where a waitress lies bound and gagged . . .
A cursed soul in a moonlit pumpkin patch, desperate and lonely . . .

These are songs for the damned, poisons for the cure, and Dreams for the Dying.

For years, Adam Light has frightened and delighted readers around the world with his stories of horror and the bizarre. Fully revised to best represent the author's original vision, these fearsome tales of the macabre are finally collected under a single cover for the first time.
