More Murmurs in the Night
More Murmurs in our minds…
There are so many reasons to be afraid…very afraid… not because it’s pure horror but because many occurrences within these pages are things our imaginations have already thought up… of things that have entered the dark side of our minds & we have quickly pushed them away…
Without giving anything away my favourite stories included:
Bus Chatter… I didn’t expect the ending at all.
The Case of the Big Case – Loved it!
Fancy seeing you, Aunty – A good story… short & punchy with a sharp twist, I didn’t guess the ending until it was revealing itself.
I highly recommend this second instalment of short stories by Les Pobjie… & I hope it awakens your murmurs in the night… as it did mine.
Murmurs in the Night
Natural inheritor of Roald Dahl
Twisted stories, some actually quite disturbing
A collection of short stories to stir the skin with chills and thrills. I really enjoyed this and despite not believing the blurb likening the book to Roald Dahl, it actually is reminiscent of his quiet and subtle horror. The thing I enjoyed the most is the twisting of modern concepts. The story about a cooking competition really made me smile with the vindictive cleverness of the twisted story – reflecting the insanity of this kind of TV. If you enjoy short stories, this is a good anthology from a single author who has managed a high standard throughout. — TRACEY, on Amazon
Imagination is everything
I know Les personally and I admire his writing skills and his witty sense of humour. Les definitely put a smile on my dial with his imaginative writing, and some of the short stories had hair-raising endings, especially the cooking competition (my favourite).
It’s funny, but Les is a “quiet” fellow and a perfect gentleman. His “dark” side astounded and thrilled me, too. I know he is eager to write more short stories. Oh, the horror of it all 😉 — SANDY SAVOS, on Amazon
Imaginative horror stories that kept me awake
I love horror, that slight fear when you switch out the light to sleep that something is under the bed, really gives me a thrill. But I often lack the time necessary to dedicate myself to a full length novel, so I’ve been reading a lot of short stories and this collection works really well. Its stories are well paced, the characters accessible and the ideas instantly recognizable which is vital in a short story. It’s a great collection. I can’t think of one story I didn’t like – Christmas Darks is my favorite though… Seriously disturbing! TERRI, on Amazon
