"Marie - US - Great read. As someone who loves all things spooky this is a wonderful collection of spooky things, illustrations are well done from someone who clearly has knowledge on the subject. Would recommend this book.

Mrs S J Wellington-Clark - UK - A devilishly delicious collection of bite sized, creepy stories. A fantastic little gift, especially with Halloween coming up. We really need to see more from Craig A. Bowers....more haunting tales and local folklore to tingle our spines please!"

Featured Reviews

Portraits of Dark Things: A Collection of Ghastly Tales and Haunting Images by Craig A. Bowers was received directly from the publisher and I chose to review it. I am not sure if this is Craigs first, very short novella, but I will be looking out for this author. The stores were interesting and spooky enough to keep me interested, though the book was, as mentioned, very short. If you want to buy a novella, with pictures, to share with hardcore children, friends or neighbors, this may be a quick read to start with. 4 stars

I really enjoyed Portraits of Dark Things. I enjoyed the stories and the art - oh, how awesome the art is! Portraits of Dark Things brought me back to the days of Goosebumps and Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Essentially, Portraits of Dark Things is the perfect addition to the horror lover starter pack. I happened to stumble on this book while perusing NetGalley and am so glad that I did! I didn't read it in time for my Spooktober goals, but I will enjoy this title over and over again.

I enjoyed this book so much. The writing felt like I was listening to a podcast. This book would be amazing as an audiobook. The stories here were short and scary. They reminded me a lot of goosebumps and the scary stories to tell in the dark. I will be looking forward to reading more from this author.
