Scott Nicholson’s short stories have drifted on the wind, across deserts and dead seas, and now have found a final resting place. In Scattered Ashes, the best of his award-winning work is presented together for the first time.

Nicholson, author of seven novels including The Skull Ring and They Hunger, has stretched the genre to embrace peculiar pregnancies, supernatural mysteries, unorthodox creatures, and sinister psychology, exploring questions of faith and despair, love and loss. Gather around the campfire. The flames are intense and the ashes still warm…

The Night Is An Ally
Work In Progress

Whispers about Scattered Ashes

“Keep both hands on your pants, because Nicholson is about to scare them off.” – Jack Kilborn, author of Afraid

“Scott Nicholson is the kind of writer who always surprises and always entertains. His writing is crisp and fast-paced, his characters are real, and knows how to twist the knife.” – Jonathan Maberry, author of Patient Zero and Ghost Road Blues

“Lovecraft may have invented cosmic horror, but Scott Nicholson brings it up close and personal.” – Deborah Leblanc, author of Water Witch and Morbid Curiosity

“Scott Nicholson is a terrific writer. Like Stephen King, he has an eye and ear for the rhythms of rural America, and like King he knows how to summon serious scares. My advice? Buy everything he writes. This guy’s the real deal!” – Bentley Little, author of The Academy and The Vanishing
