    I was looking for something similar to creepypasta, and I found it. Well worth the read, and terrifying!

    Glad I stumbled across this one I was first introduced to this author through his story "Psychosis" on a Creepy Pasta web site. (I may or may not spend way too much time there haha) Being a life long horror fan there is very little that can make my heart race these days. Psychosis pulled it off though. Safe to say it's my favorite short story but Come Closer is a close second..chilling! Will definitely be following this author for more.

    I started reading this because I needed to kill time in a silent way and wanted to read scary stories. However, I rapidly got excited because of the eerie feelings the tales transmitted and the entertainment they offered me. I'm glad this was my last book in 2018 because it fueled my desire to read more in 2019 and to explore this genre more.

    This novel was dark, suspenseful, and thrilling. It delved into the deep recesses of the human mind and weaved a tale both complex and intriguing. It left you wondering about the different motivations and thoughts that go through peoples' minds.There were graphic displays of the otherworldly, and the stories all seemed to come together nicely. Matt Dymerski's work will leave you begging for more. I first read his work on Nosleep.

I've never been disappointed by the sheer smoothness of the stories as they each lead the reader wherever Matt Dymerski wants them. It's as if one is being lured into a trap, and when the trap has been sprung, they're left wanting for more of the lure still. He leads the reader into a dark, sweet delusion that is both terrifying as it is gritty and real. It leaves you to wonder what truly is out there all around us?

    Psychological Horror can't get any better. That's what I thought will running through this story. It just gets under your skin. And by the time you get to the final lines, you know, you seriously know, that you have read something that is exceptionally rare.

    A lot of potential but the author needs more practice - grab for free There are perhaps two stories with excellent ideas behind them, one cheesy modern fable, and then a few further pieces which are simply filler in quality. In fact, because of the variance in technical standard, I wonder if some of these only saw one redrafting.

In fact, because of the variance in technical standard, I wonder if some of these only saw one redrafting. There are no glaring typos or grammatical errors but the repetition of certain phrases and many clichés would seem to point towards an attitude of "this is good enough, it gets the point across". If you have a strong imagination I think you will be able to unnerve yourself with the kernels of horror in this collection. If not, you !right become frustrated by how the pacing falters and the suspense is ruined by slightly clumsy writing. Still, I feel " Fire in the Soul" is a story worth reading all on its own. The plot is quirky and interesting. This is like a soup made from B movies, Lovecraft, and Clive Barker, heated up in the microwave for slightly too long and served in a nice ceramic bowl. I'd like to see the work of this author once he's read a lot more and practiced his craft to a higher level.

    With short stories I often enjoy psychological and supernatural horror the most. So its not surprising my favorites were Psychosis, The Bonewalker, Scribblings, Correspondence and Erosion. Psychosis-How can you tell when youre being paranoid or if there is really something out to get you? The Bonewalker-There is risk when playing with blood magic.

    More like a 3.5. Some of the stories were really, really good (Psychosis, The Fire of the Soul, and "Come Closer") and others were kind of meh (Erosion, The Seven Horsemen of the Apocalypse [seemed like it was going for social commentary and humor and really did not go over well for me]), and some just ended way too soon and I wanted more explanation (Strangers in a Graveyard, Strange Things). Overall though, a fun collection of creepy stories. Also hey, it's free on Amazon right now.

    I will be honest, I was not scared by this book. It's interesting and some psychologically thrilling elements, but nothing about this was frightening to me. The vagueness of the "creepy monsters" is so uninspired that I found it mostly really boring...I think the writing was good, and I liked the style it was written, but I wasn't even that creeped out by it. The book is really interesting and the stories are really thought-provoking, but not as scary as I was hoping! Still liked it.

    Very good collection of horror shorts I'm an avid reader of Creepypasta and so I've seen a few of these stories in their infancy. I'm glad to see more. Good writing, unique stories, and a surprising little snicker at the end.

    solid stories, weak ending I liked the story overall. I didn't like the end story at all which soured it for me (especially the burst of comedy when Psychosis scared me so much), but it was a quick, enjoyable read.

    I found Matt on Reddit and have been completely sucked into his incredible multiverse for the past month. I cannot even express how well-written, intricate, and gripping his writing is, so please just read this and find out.

    This wasn't my favorite sadly. This is a collection of short stories all with a one theme - a psychotic main character. I liked several of the stories, but not their endings. Some of them did exactly just that, ended. I wanted even just one page more from each story to wrap them up better. I gave this series 3 stars because I really liked the actual stories. Each one had a main character who was going crazy for one reason or another. Sometimes it was almost *too* much to swallow because several This wasn't my favorite sadly.

These are definitely "Tales of Horror." I wasn't as much scared for the characters as I was intrigued to see what happened. Great set of short stories, just wanted a bit more from each one.

    Half n half Solid writing, some interesting themes. I recommend Psychosis and Fire of the Soul from this collection of stories, along with Scribblings, Correspondence. If you like dark humor, the last story The Seven Horsemen of the Apocalypse is worth checking out as well. The Bonewalker had some real creep, but too short for a satisfying payoff. No major issues with grammar or editing. Maybe a little more character development, a bit more build up of suspense in the shorter of the stories.

It's obvious Dymerski has the talent, he just needs to keep working on his craft and find his groove. I would read more by this author.

    This was quite possibly one of the most amazing collection of horror stories that I've ever read. I don't know if it was only because I was reading this at night, in the dark but this one gave me some serious chills. I would recommend it to all horror enthusiasts, you definitely will not be disappointed.

    I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It appeals to my general belief that the mind is way scarier than monsters or villains. A few of the stories were a little hard to follow, but for the most part the collection was fun and creepy.

    Interesting I enjoyed these short stories. As always with short stories I wish I got more but it is what it is. Each one had a good plot and story line and well developed characters.

    A fun read Some fun thought provoking stories. I did wish for more stories to have closure but....open endings are pretty popular. Good writing with pretty good imagery.
