The Seeds of Nightmares
By Tony Tremblay
The Seeds of Nightmares is the first collection of short fiction by horror and genre author Tony Tremblay, under his own name. This collection includes many of his published stories (under the pseudonym, T. T. Zuma), as well as the novellette, The Strange Saga of Mattie Dyer, published here for the first time. The thirteen tales in The Seeds of Nightmares run a gambit of genres from terrifying horror, atmospheric noir, to the blackest (and bloody) dark humor.
From the introduction by acclaimed author, John McIlveen (Hannahwhere, Inflictions):
In THE SEEDS OF NIGHTMARES, Tony offers us a smorgasbord – a feast of emotions and genres that cover the spectrum. Take his opening offering for example, the nasty little novelette The Strange Saga of Mattie Dyer, a darkly humorous, Lovecraftian, western, tale of vengeance (yes, you read that right). Wrought with unsavory and despicable characters—a thwarted woman, a vile creature, redneck gold-diggers, and Indians—it’s a virtual Pandora’s Box and a hell of a first run…. There will be twists, bumps, a little blood, and possibly a few tears, but you’re tough…you can take it. So have a seat, strap in, and enjoy the ride!
