Dark Fiction lovers and horror fans won’t want to miss this chance, to explore the world of the supernatural, the occult, dark creatures, maniacs and eternal damnation, in Alexander S .Brown’s book, Traumatized. Published in 2008 by Xlibris.
Fans of the horror genre are in for a treat as Alexander S. Brown presents a fascinating and raw collection of 15 short stories and novellas that will surely bring chills down your spine.
I had the opportunity to meet the author, Alexander S. Brown, at the February Fright Fest 2011, in Jackson Mississippi this month. I also had the pleasure of exchanging books with Mr. Brown. He is a delightful person, with a sincere love for the horror genre. I found his book to be quite an exciting surprise! But, definately not for the faint of heart, weak of mind, nor is it a book for young readers..
Mr. Brown told some tales in his book, that not only made me shudder, but actually disturbed my core. This is the effect that a true horror story should leave the reader with. If a horror story, doesn’t rake a nerve or two, then it isn’t worth reading, in my opinion.
With that being said, Alexander S. Brown is a true, horror story-teller and excellent, dark fiction writer, he definately raked raw, a nerve or two of mine, with his chilling book of tales. I had to keep reminding myself that it was just fiction.
I encourage all horror and dark fiction fans, to get a copy for yourself and read it…… but with fair warning…. you might be left, a bit Traumatized.
I would like to thank Alexander Brown for his permission in using his photo and his cover art for this blog post, and for taking the time to speak with me about his book, for allowing me the opportunity to read it, and write a blog post about it for our Darkpens readers. But mostly, thanks, for giving me the creepy crawlies, I love that in a good book of horror stories.
