100 Nightmares by K.Z. Morano

100 Nightmares by K.Z. Morano is a collection of 100 horror stories, each written in exactly 100 words, and accompanied by over 50 illustrations. Inside, you’ll find monsters—both imagined and real. There are vengeful specters, characters with impaired psyches, dark fairy tales and stories and illustrations inspired by bizarre creatures of Japanese folklore.


Praise for K.Z. Morano

"100 Nightmares took me for a thrill ride from the very first page. This book is filled with some of the creepiest and horrifying illustrations and flash fiction I've ever come across. K.Z. Morano knows how to take the fairy tale and twist it into a horrifying piece of flash prose, or subject an innocent person to the most brutal torture, or death. Seriously, some very disturbing moments were encountered as I read each story. Wow, keep an eye out for this writer, my friends, she's going to be delivering horror the way it's meant to be." ~Charles Day, Bram Stoker Award®-nominated Author of THE LEGEND OF THE PUMPKIN THIEF, and author of DEEP WITHIN and HUNT FOR THE GHOULISH BARTENDER

 


“I can’t say enough about this book… It's well written, different, scary, and very unique.” – Bittersweet Book Reviews


“There’s an art to writing an effective story in so few words and the author nails it.” – THE CULT OF ME


"Such a brilliant concept with no two stories alike. Timeless enjoyment to be reread over and over..." - Paula Limbaugh, Horror Novel Reviews


“In all, Morano delivers an eclectic range of ambitious micro-fiction, the more accomplished of which is truly impressive in what it achieves in such a small amount of words.” – Horror After Dark


It takes a brief encounter with death to cause enduring nightmares.
A single well-placed blow could maim you for life…
One well-placed word could haunt you forever.

Micro-fiction is a blade—sharp, swift…
Sometimes it goes for the jugular, killing you in seconds.
Its silver tongue touches your throat and warm blood hisses before you can scream.

Sometimes, the knife makes micro-cuts in the sensitive sheath of your sanity, creating wounds that will fester throughout eternity.

Take my 100 words daily like a slow-acting poison or read them all and die of overdose.
Your call.
It’s your suicide after all.

Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales - Fran Fischer,Sarah Clark Monagle,B.J. Lee,Steven Kaminsky,Siv Maria Ottem,Deb Claxton,Diane Weis Farone,Adam Graham,Pat Hatt,Joshua Carstens,Roland D. Yeomans,Kate Buhler,Barry Parham,Shane Stilson,Robert G. Ferrell,Neal Levin,Timothy Hurley,Melynda Fleur

Open Doors: Fractured Fairy Tales is a fun little book full of different authors versions of various fairy tales. It has versions of everything from Snow White to Humpty Dumpty. I enjoyed all the different takes on these classics but found a few hard to get into. Definitely a good read for any fan of fairy tales, but not so much children.

The Three Pigs - Where was this all my life?
The Three Pigs - David Wiesner

*Incomplete review-complete when reread*

I was not prepared for this story. I figured it would be another retelling with pretty pictures until I started reading it. David Wiesner has created an unbelievable experience that takes storytelling to another level. He takes the reader beyond the level of ordinary picture books as his characters break through beyond the picture book's hidden structure that is always there but hidden from the reader's eyes. It really makes you think about the mechanics of telling stories and what goes into creating the physical manifestation of one of humanity's greatest gifts-creativity/imagination.
