Twenty-six new tales from the terrifying mind of Gregory L. Norris, including short stories, novelettes, and novellas.

“In my experience of seven years on Voyager, I do not believe I have encountered a writer for whom I have greater respect in terms of intelligence, understanding, and talent. There is no one more capable to pen such a volume as Muse and, also, to do it so

Gregory L. Norris takes the reader on a twisted journey through his dark imagination. He shows them things that lurk in the deepest, more horrifying parts of his mind…where few would dare go.

Story One: Storage – When a man is forced by his life circumstances to store his possessions in a unit for a while, until he finds a new place to live, he’s discouraged when he finally retrieves them. Some of them are severely d

In this collection of short stories, Gregory's muse takes us to places as diverse as ancient Egypt to your own back yard. 26 tales, each one unique in it's telling and yet there are a few stories which share similar geography. Highway 101 is a stretch of road I wouldn't want to find myself traveling on a dark and lonely night.

The author is skilled at creating believable situations and has a real talent for conversation. Sure there are monsters, of both the nightmarish and human kind, but I had n

This is a must have read. Gregory is one the most talented writers around and this collection of stories, all wonderfully original and with a twist that is typical of Gregory Norris' skill as a writer of fantastic tales and a unique mind. If you are making a list of must have books, make sure that this is top of that list.

Reader Caution: “The Fierce and Unforgiving Muse” is a glorious romp through the creative fields of imagination of multi-published author Gregory L. Norris. However-this is not a short novel to be raced through at the speed of light. This is a story collection to be savoured. It has become trite to specify, “something here for everyone,” yet I say it because I believe it to be true. Any reader who doesn’t find something (or multiple somethings) delectably scary, tantalizing, and horrendous here- ...more

Once inside this dark anthology, a few stories deep, the author tells us, "The average dream lasts twenty minutes. Some nightmares never end." That aphorism eventually sheds its cleverness, however, and takes on the starker dimensions of a warning; a placard cautioning the reader that to proceed is to risk the soundness of mind. From the first story, "Storage", about one man's stored possessions having nurtured something more than just nostalgia, to the incredible horror that idles inside the ni ...more
