Product Description

Product Description

"Matt Drabble is a name that will one day be as widely recognized as Stephen King & Dean Koontz" - READERS FAVORITE
                  
"Asylum 13 Tales of Terror" is a US Horror Chart #5 best seller and was voted 5th on The Horror Novel Review's Top 10 novels of 2013. The novel is also a 2014 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner.

Matt Drabble also has a highest Amazon Horror Author Ranking of 5th.

Blackwater Heights is a building with a long dark history, some of it is well known but more is shrouded in myth and legend. None more so than that of its founding father Horace Whisker.

Martin Parcell is an ex-journalist with shattered dreams of an author's career. Sidelined through a car crash's injuries, he finds himself forced through governmental austerity measures having to take a custodians position at a private mental health hospital. A writer with undoubted talent, but an author without a story.

He begins his new job deep in depression and drowning under waves of his lost dreams. On his first night he meets Jimmy, his elderly supervisor who has spent most of his life within the hospital walls. Jimmy is nearing retirement age and desperate to rest his weary bones. Jimmy offers Martin a way out for both of them, access to the background histories and stories of the hospital's patients.

A collection of 13 tales from the darkly disturbed minds of the residents of Blackwater Heights.

As the long night unwinds, Martin finds himself deeply troubled as the tales unfold before him and threaten to drag him down into their insanity.

About the Author

Born in Bath, England in 1974, a self-professed "funny onion", equal parts sport loving jock and comic book geek.

I have also just published a sequel to "Gated" called "Gated II: Ravenhill Academy" I have recently been signed by Taylor Street Books in San Francisco who will be producing my novel "The Montague Portrait" and I am currently proofing a new novel called "The Travelling Man" while writing "Double Visions" Visit me at www.mattdrabble.com Twitter: MattDrabble01 Facebook: matt.drabble.3 or to sign up for a newsletter: Matt.Drabble.Author

Thoroughly enjoyable. Several of the tales ended in ways I did not expect or see coming, an especially good thing when it comes to horror. A story can't creep you out if you always know what's going to happen next!

My only complaint would be that the eBook version I read needs to be edited/proofread one final time. Lots of little typos and mistakes that pull the reader out of the story, generally involving some form of wrong word, autocorrect-style errors ( some examples: "slither" instead of "sliver", " "emasculated" instead of "emaciated", "of" instead of "on"). Otherwise, a very good collection of creepy, macabre tales.

From time to time, I like to read short stories only to have a fast good read without too much details. I loved the way the author choose to present this short story collection: he insert them inside a main story. It's an ingenious way to present the short texts and I think that it made all the difference for this book. Funny thing: I was reading one of the stories where the electricity was cut-off when, suddenly, the electricity went off at my home due to a shortage. It was like the fiction was becoming reality! At least, the killer didn't appear too!
