Smashwords does have some good stuff & this is one of the gems, just 5 short horror stories totaling 39 pages, but well worth reading. I'm pretty hard to please with horror stories since most of it has been done so much that there isn't much shock value left. Chapman proves there is some, though. He has a truly creepy mind. (Just stay away from me, Greg. I will NOT invite you into my home.)

The book is free on Smashwords here:

Reading Midnight Theatre: Tales of Terror is like stepping through a multi-layered universe created by Greg Chapman. Each story weaves facts interlaced with references to events in history or literature pieces. I can’t divulge more than to avoid giving the stories away. I can, however, give couple of examples of how the novella affected me; I feel the time differently now, especially any references to Déjà vu; Halloween will hold new dark corners for me, in those corners other beings dwell, engr ...more

Greg Chapman offers us a sample of his work with these five short and darkly entertaining tales. All five are tales of supernatural terror, but that is where the similarity ends; each is very different from the others. My favourites were the enigmatic tale about a writer who will be instantly recognisable to any fan of horror and mystery, and the final tale - an exploration of time and the cruel games it can play.

Midnight Theatre is a treat for horror lovers everywhere.

This collection of 5 shorts begins with Precious Blood. Father Duncan Malloy is a priest at a small Catholic Church in Ireland and just before closing the doors for the night, he is coerced into the confessional by someone who's been around for a very, very long time.

From a vampire tale in Ireland to a story of the undead in New Orleans, next up is Relish, which starts with Jerry Thornton "naked, tied up in the the dark, in the middle of

This is one of the books that I grabbed in the free section on the Kobo site and I'm ridiculously pleased that I did. I came to this collection of short stories with no expectations and I am delighted by what I got. Chapman has a great sense for the grotesque without getting too carried away. Some of the stories lacked a little though the potential for more is definitely there. I won't go into too much detail because each story is its own animal and I think there's something great in there for a ...more

A compilation of short stories superbly written by Greg Chapman. All stories are different, with some excerpts of his other published works. My favourite story was 'Relish." If you like short horror stories, I thoroughly recommend this book. I look forward to reading more of his work. ...more

Series of very short, unrelated "scary" stories, none of which were scary. It was okay. Not what I expected, but I guess worth the read since it's only 25 pages. ...more
