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

Whispers about Unspeakable Horror: From the Shadows of the Closet

“In reflecting on this book, I’m reminded of how much fine work is being produced by the indie press. Liaguno and Helder, to their credit, took their time in producing the finest anthology possible, and the finished product doesn’t disappoint. On the whole, Unspeakable is a highly recommended read for all horror fans, as it offers something for everyone. Lovers of the dark, the literary, the gruesome, and even the disgusting, will find something to treasure.” – Fear Zone

“Whether you’re a fan of crime, mystery, fantasy or straight-up horror, chances are something that lurks in this anthology’s closet will reach out and grab you. And if you wind up sleeping with the lights on…you will have gotten your money’s worth.” – Horror World
