Product Description

About the Author

My Twitter bio said writer, poet, explorer and mystic and that probably says it all quite neatly. I've written stories my whole life, even before I could actually read. My father mistakenly allowed me to use his typewriter from an early age and I was hooked. I'm not sure the typewriter survived very long having me bash out strings of letters in the belief that what I had in my head would magically transform into words others can read. I've got better at that. I write novels, short stories and poetry, and I also blog at http://zenandtheartoftightropewalking.wordpress.com

Some horror stories are full on, in your face, all monsters and demons and blood. Others are far more subtle. A hint of the supernatural, a whiff of the strange, a creeping sense of dread. And perhaps a perfectly rational explanation, if all the facts were known. Or perhaps not.

But the end results can be just as bloody.

Which sort of story is the most unsettling is really a matter of individual taste. But it is the second sort that you will find in this collection - and it is something that the author excels at.

My favorite was probably 'Green Willow', which ended on a hopeful note. Or perhaps 'A fragrance of Roses' - a story without explanation, but which generates a powerful atmosphere. But the one that may stay with me longest is 'Black Hole', which might have me looking twice at suspicious marks on the carpet.

If you like to be able to leave your horror stories behind in the book, then this might not be for you. But if you don't mind the lingering thought that perhaps there is something lurking just out of sight, a different and darker reality waiting to reach out for you, then you should try these short stories!

This collection of short stories by Viv Tuffnell kept me company over two nights whilst on holiday in the Lake District. Not your standard holiday reading, I was very lucky that I wasn't sleeping alone...

Not straightforward ghost stories, or simply tales tapping into those things that horrify us all, these dip into some very dark places of the soul and one or two of them certainly had me feeling quite 'freaked out' - especially 'The Devil's Pet' which is genuinely scary. Other tales send a shiver down the spine as they open up possibilities of revenge, of attack or of simple evil that I had never previously thought of. I will certainly not think of willow in the same way ever again...

The author has obviously enjoyed exploring the darker side of her imagination and she transmits that to the reader even in the darkest tales. I loved the ride she takes us on!

I really enjoyed this collection of dark tales by Vivienne Tuffnell. Although the subject matter is varied, there is a common spirituality running through each story. I was reminded of Tales of The Unexpected by many of the stories and hope to read more from the talented author soon.

A collection of short stories, not to be read at night when you're home alone. Wonderfully written, edge of your seat, proper page turners make this book unputdownable. It's one of those I'll read again and again and I have recommended it to family and friends. Thank You Vivienne for giving me another favourite read.
