Her Infernal Name & Other Nightmares is Robert Ottone’s second collection of horror fiction, and what a collection it is! There’s no specific theme throughout, with a wide variety of topics that should entertain the vast majority of horror fans. Stories covering extraterrestrial life, the undead, gaming, animals, ants and… sugar. The diversity of the topics reflects Ottone’s creative flair and this is evident in every story.
From waking fears to heart-breaking nightmares, this collection of short fiction is a glimpse into the terrors we face every day from the mind of Robert P. Ottone.
In “The Arborist,” a woman hears the mysterious call of the forest.
Five friends exploring an archipelago find themselves set upon by the island’s hungry inhabitants in “The Monitors.”
A young woman confronts the mystery of her infertility in “Kelly Watch the Stars.”
These works are joined by the title novella, Her Infernal Name which is about the cruel intersection of desire and desperation, and many other stories crafted in the hopes of keeping you up at night.
As with many anthologies, the collection contains stories of varying lengths with some just over 4 pages, yet each as impactive as the last. If you are looking for a series of short stories that will give you chills, a sense of unease, or just to satisfy your bloodlust, then this collection is for you.
