Product Description

About the Author

Born in Bath, England in 1974, a self-professed "funny onion", equal parts sport loving jock and comic book geek. From an early age reading so many works of varied authors, I took the somewhat foolhardy decision to attempt my own novel. I now have eight novels on Amazon, "Asylum - 13 Tales of Terror", "Gated", "Rapture Falls", "Fangsters" and my latest novels "Abra-Cadaver" & a new horror anthology "After Darkness Falls" Volumes One and Two. 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

Really enjoyed reading this, as it was broken up into short stories it felt like no time at all until it was finished, which I found quite sad!

I love horror stories and this is simply the best book I have read in a long time. It gives some good modern competition to the old classics. I wish I could wipe my memory and read it all over again. Absolutely fantastic.

I gave this rating as it's been a long time since I enjoyed reading a book so much. I rationed myself to one story a night at bedtime so it would last me a little longer. It reminded me of old Hammer Horror compendium tales of horror from the 1970's. I felt the ending was a little rushed but overall a wonderfully atmospheric read. Sleep tight!

This was a unbelievable read, usually. I steer away from short stories as I like to get my teeth into a good read. Also a mixture of short stories,
some not as good as other's. But this book, is about different stories, but all joined together to make this one macabre book. I am so glad reviews made me pick this up. Straight away on ending, logged into Amazon, for the next in series.
Excellent writer, keeps you enthralled all the way until your at the nail bitting end. This is a must read..you will not be disappointed. This is an excellent experience entering the Asylum, but not for the faint of heart.

I had never heard of Matt Drabble before I read this book, and now I working my way through his published library.

This book is great for those who aren't able to read for prolonged periods of time as it consists of 13 bitesize thrillers with an interlinking story. I found it perfect for bedtime reading.

The narrative is very easy to follow and Matt Drabble manages to fit so much detail and suspense into very short stories.

Highly recommend!

I loved this book. The writing style and pace is just my cup of tea, and it's an interesting way to write stories within a story. It was somewhat predictable at the end but I enjoyed the individual tales so much, I didn't mind that. I've downloaded a couple of his other free books in the hope that it isn't just a one off fluke. If I enjoy those as well, I'll happily buy his other stories.

I'm not sure I agree with the statement that the author of this book will become as big a household name as Stephen King or Dean Koontz, or if he does, his craft and flair for the dramatic and suspense will have to greatly improve. I like the concept, with the different stories and so on, but only a couple of them really stood out for me and I have to say that I had the ending nailed before I was even halfway through; fans of the genre will no doubt pick it up much sooner. For me, it lacked atmosphere and therefore realism, which is exactly what a horror story doesn't need.

But I do feel that anyone who takes the time and effort to publish a book, and do so to a very reasonable standard, deserves some acclaim, therefore three stars, Just don't worry about it giving you sleepless nights :)

Fell across this book by accident and have been reading it for a while, indulging in a residents story here and there finishing the boom whilst on holiday. I thoroughly enjoyed it, a compelling read and more addictive the further in you get.
