We Are Where the Nightmares Go and Other Stories

We rated this book:


There are all sorts of flavors of horror literature out there. There are ghost stories and slow-burners that let the tension do all the work. There are gorefests that challenge your gag reflex in their detailed delvings into body horror and various grotesqueries. There are monster tales and disappearances and alien unknowable evils, chillers and thrillers and books about killers.

C. Robert Cargill specializes in tales where soul-ripping monsters and the darkness lurking in the shadows come to life in horrifying, satisfying, mind-bending ways, and We Are Where the Nightmares Go and Other Stories is an undeniably visceral reading experience.

Whether it’s dinosaurs dealing with a zombie outbreak or bureaucrats marking the victims who will die on a given day, a little girl battling walking, talking nightmares, or the worst devil on your shoulder imaginable, these stories are as gripping as they are unsettling, taking the reader down unexpected avenues and off the beaten path into circumstances we’d never considered.

Much in the same way that a David Cronenburg film makes you question reality, a C. Robert Cargill story alters your perceptions, offering ideas you’ve never seen before. What sinister fun this collection is.
