Product Description

About the Author

Chantal Noordeloos (born in the Hague, and not found in a cabbage as some people may suggest) lives in the Netherlands, where she spends her time with her wacky, supportive husband, and outrageously cunning daughter, who is growing up to be a supervillain. When she is not busy exploring interesting new realities, or arguing with characters (aka writing), she likes to dabble in drawing. In 1999 she graduated from the Norwich School of Art and Design, where she focused mostly on creative writing. There are many genres that Chantal likes to explore in her writing. Currently Sci-fi Steampunk is one of her favourites, but her 'go to' genre will always be horror. "It helps being scared of everything; that gives me plenty of inspiration," she says. Chantal likes to write for all ages, and storytelling is the element of writing that she enjoys most. "Writing should be an escape from everyday life, and I like to provide people with new places to escape to, and new people to meet."

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Voice in Dutch Horror 4 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Ministry of Zombies was provided with a review copy of these sordid tales in exchange for a review.

It's unusual for a new author to release a collection of short stories after publishing their first novel - it used to be something a writer did after a decade or so. However, having read several Chantal Noordeloos stories in various anthologies I knew a bit about what to expect.

From this collection, the author clearly sees short stories as a standalone genre in itself - this is not a set of stories which has been thrown together, each justifies its place - something which I think let's down many collections by new authors. You get the feeling the author is playing the horror genre, testing out different themes & we, as readers, get to enjoy the results.

Is there a theme to this collection? Well, there is definite Dutch feel to the tales & some of the settings will please those of us familiar with this amazing country. Other than this, there is a wide range of settings & styles - murders most foul, from beyond the grave & just plain horrific - all well-written, edited & constructed stories.
There's a lot of murder, a lot of creeping death & traditional horror!

A few highlights for me included:

Death Awaits You - a bizarre case of murder or something else? The family setting here makes it all the scarier...ever get the feeling that it won't end well?

Uncle Edmund's Funeral - a macabre feel to this tale - the author had me at "a luxurious wreath of white lilies graced the mahogany top" This Funeral ends very badly for some.

Preaching - This is no delicate tale, I've never heard a pastor like this before. It's short & pretty horrific.

So, all in all, a fine collection. I hope Noordeloos continues with her short stories, she is certainly one the most exciting female horror writers we've reviewed in recent years.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent horror collection 13 Nov. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a big fan of short fiction and this is an excellent collection horror stories. There's a good variety here, both in length and subject. The stories cover a range of horror staples, but usually provides an interesting angle to the story.

All of the stories were a decent read, but a few of them stood out for me. The first was the dinner party with an unusual guest. It's an idea that I've seen before and this version was well put together. I would have liked to see more of the aftermath!

Another story that stood out was one about a sick young girl. While it's fairly obvious what's going on it's well written and poignant tale that stuck in my memory.

The same issue is evident in a few of the stories, but the quality of the author's writing means that they're still a good read. I always appreciate a twist in a story and there's some surprises here.to be enjoyed. Overall this is a well written collection with some fine stories - well worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars wish I could give it 10 stars 18 Nov. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
English is not CN first language, she is after all from the Netherlands, so I was really surprised at her command of the English language and her ability to utilize it in scaring the socks off me. Now she is the sort of lady who will try to push all the credit on to her wonderful editor but the talent must be there to start with and CN has it in bucket loads.

Soulman: Three homeless men under a bridge tell their life stories to the Soulman and his Raven, each singing their woeful tale; murderers, perverts and junkies. When the twist is revealed at the end it did feel very cathartic. CN has such a beautiful way of describing things that even the revolting clothing and sleeping area of the homeless is made to sound gorgeous and comfortable.

The Widow: Who are the worse monsters in this story, with the casual telling of the horrors it's hard to tell; the Widow, the naughty children, the Witte Wieven, Father or Opoe with her scary ghost stories. Such an intricately woven tale CN has managed to create her own urban legends. This little story really freaked me out. The family life she describes is harsh but real and as the story develops and explodes with the horror at the end, all the little pieces slot nicely in, giving that sense of a reality that all myths stem from.

A Taste of Darkness: This is written in a very staccato style which lends itself very well to the buildup of terror. When the final cut came I felt myself gulp in disgust.

When the Bell Tolls: In the middle of a park a strange clock tower springs up and as its reaches each hour a new surprise arrives, will the world survive? CN manages to baffle and scare all at the same time with this weird little tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted Deeply 8 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like a box of assorted chocolates this book is full of surprises but contains what it says on the box. There are soft centres,hard ones to get your teeth stuck into,lighter fluffier ones that will make you smile with devilish glee,sprinkled with decorative swirls of Neil Gaiman and Clive Barker and all wrapped up in the dark bittersweet chocolate of Horror.
