Wakeful Children

A Collection of Horror and Supernatural Tales


Wakeful Children is a collection of highly imaginative and inventive short stories. 

The oak sways gently, a shiver shimmers its way from roots to tip. A branch creaks as if in resistance. A small, fresh leaf strains to curl into life, shows promise for an instant, then withers and dies. A sigh, just beyond human hearing, vibrates the night. All else is still. 

You will be unwittingly taken on a journey to witness the twisted brutality of Joe Gallows, the weird dream-scape of The Sandman, the ice-cold grasp of The Face of the Gale, the elemental horror of an ancient, evil entity in Devil’s Drop. You will visit some of the residents down a darkly troubled street in Absorption; watched over by a beautiful, malignant presence all the while. 

These and other tales make Wakeful Children an extremely unusual, compelling and refreshingly different read in this genre. One that will leave you thinking of it long after you have turned the last page...

I loved this book. Every story was different and I loved the fact that some left you wondering what was going to happen. My favourite story was 'Joe Gallows', a gruesome but compelling story. Highly recommend this book."
