Suburban Terrors by Pauline Montagna is a collection of twelve stories that delve into that mysterious realm, prompting the realisation that not everything is always as normal as it may seem.

The settings are typical suburban settings that readers can relate to but with a twist. I love that Pauline used Australian suburban names and references, and being from Melbourne I could relate to the imaginative The Loop. (FYI - Melbourne’s underground circular train system around the city centre is referr

Who knows what nasties are hiding behind bland suburban frontages? They look like normal houses, and the people who live there look just like everyone else. But are they?
This collection of twelve stories, by Australian writer Pauline Montagna, takes us down the dark side of those suburban streets. Pauline describes ordinary situations and then shears off at a tangent into frightening possibilities that tap into our fears of being lost, hurt, attacked, or losing people we love. My favourites were

I had read one of these short stories (The Dognappers) before and remembered that I had really liked it. So, when I won a copy of this book as part of an Australia Day Competition (yes, some Aussies actually spend the national day reading), I was chuffed indeed.
It didn't take long to discover that The Dognappers was by no means the only memorable tale in this collection. As a fan and fellow writer of suburban suspense and as a current resident of the fine city of Melbourne, I thoroughly enjoyed

Suburban Terrors really got me in. A series of well-constructed and interesting pieces about the hidden under-belly of life in the burbs. These stories were varied, characters were believable, and the endings often a surprising twist on the tale. The element of the supernatural was perhaps a bit over-used, but the human interest of the stories compensated. Definitely recommended.
