Advance Praise for The Nightmare Collection

The Nightmare Collection is a stunning
showcase of vivid prose. Alluring and
provocative, emotive and often amusing, this is
storytelling of the highest order. Bruce Boston
once again demonstrates why he is the
undisputed master of dark poetry.”  --Michael
McBride, author of the
God’s End trilogy and

“Bruce Boston's strange landscape of nether
worlds and beings invokes a state of mind the
reader will gladly be pulled into, even at the risk
of discovering a dark truth that threatens one's
reality...a fantastic collection!”  --Corrine De
Winter, Bram Stoker Award author of
Women at the Funeral

“Bruce Boston is a sorcerer -- he can conjure the
most powerful and visceral emotions out of a few
The Nightmare Collection is horror
poetry at its very finest...and creepiest.  It's a
midnight waltz of surreal images.  Highly
recommended!”  --Jonathan Maberry, multiple
Bram Stoker Award-winning author of
Bad Moon
and Zombie CSU: The Forensics of the
Living Dead
