"End of the shift - the best part of the job. If you made it to the bottom half of the clock with all of your limbs and no brand new holes in your body, then you had a great day."

Daymares is a collection of 7 short stories from Kenya Moss-Dyme, and it was such a fun read. I was introduced to Kenya's work in the Black Magic Women anthology (edited by Sumiko Saulson), and I was so happy to find out that she had a collection.

Each story opens with an author's note, and I love having thi

Daymares is a combination of supernatural beings who get what they want with little to no regard for humanity, and what we as humans can do if we’re pushed to our limits. And it’s disturbing how quickly some people are willing to set aside their personal code of decency, and throw off the cloak of their own humanity.

“A Colder Kind of Hell” spins the story of a brilliant defense lawyer whose skill at his job allows killers to go free. Finally, one victim refuses to accept the court’s

A Disturbing Little Collection

First let me say this, I love chills and horror but the imagination of this author threw me for a loop story after story. Kenya Moss Dyme, an author I have never heard of, must have some vivid dreams at night to come up with the seven stories that make up this interesting read. The stories in “Daymares” were a little more chilling and horror filled than I was prepared to read. Some endings left me confused, I suppose because they ended so abruptly. I had to go back

Moss-Dyme's "Daymares" is comprised of a collection of short horror stories. I never, I can't emphasize this enough, read horror stories or watch horror movies. Okay, well, clearly that's not true because I read this book and have seen a few horror movies in my day--enough to know I'm a wuss. I'm easily creeped-out and grossed-out. Or just plain disturbed by the content because, when it comes to horrific tales, there are so many levels of wrong. Which, for horror, is right on target, and so was ...more

I loved this book. Each story in the collection engulfed me entirely. If I had to pick a favorite story in the book, I couldn't just pick one , but my top three where "A Colder Kind of Hell" (shocker ending!!) , "Ride" was masterfully woven creepiness, and omg "Baby Mine" was built up so well and the ending was not only unexpected but stuck with me for days on in after I finished this book. Daymares is going to be reread by me for ages.

Great collection of short creepy/scary supernatural stories. A few had me a little puzzled and others had me rushing to turn on the night-light! Lol. My favorite stories was,

- Baby Mine: - remind me of my 3rd pregnancy but with out the supernatural creature! Lol.

- Junebug/The Flat Earth: made me realize, why I NEVER dated men with children. This story hit the spot. Lol.

- Ride: For as long as I can remember, I have always been fascinated with ghost stories and haunting (ghost getting revenge

After reading Kenya Moss-Dyme’s bone chilling “Prey For Me” I was super siked to graduate to my first horror read, "Daymares." And let me tell you… This shocking page turner does not disappoint! Like watching a modern day “Tales of The Crypt”, each short story is captivating and disturbingly twisted. Both “A Colder Kind of Hell” & “Baby Mine” will forever be embedded in my memory bank.

Can’t wait to see what Kenya Moss-Dyme unleashes next!

Daymares is a collection of horror stories that were full of surprises. Kenya Moss-Dyme shares seven stories each one a little more disturbing than the first one, but very enjoyable. My favorite is “Her Things” about a husband whose dead wife does not want others touching her things in the house.

The stories are well written, suspenseful with well-developed characters that love to scare you. The book has a wonderful cover, which truly captures the meaning of the title and content. Overall, it is

This collection of horror stories reaches deep within the reader's subconscious and pulls the fears to the surface. I am caught between praising this book and huddling in a corner! Get it Kenya!!

WOW! Graphic, disgusting, unnerving, shocking, yet completely delicious!

I was totally spellbound to each story. Each bursts with originality, excellence, and a level of horror that goes beyond excessive gore and too many pointless jumpy moments. The horror within this collection is frightfully realistic, in most cases.

The author has clearly spent a great deal of time both writing this collection and thinking of original stories that have either never been written before, or she gives an age-ol

If I had a complaint about this wonderfully, chilling collection of horror stories, it would be that I couldn't help wanting more. Each tale is a unique glimpse into terror, some were blatant and shocking while others were subtle in their revelations, but Ms. Moss-Dyme certainly has a talent for blending the urban and horror genres perfectly. I don't want to post any spoilers but I will say that my favorite tales in the collection revolve around a young woman's attempt at getting out on her own, ...more

There's nothing like a good horror anthology to take you to places that you've thought about, but never really traveled to. Daymares is an excellent collection of seven scary stories that go from body horror to zombie invasions with a little "BOO" in-between.

What scares you? Chances are, it'll be touched upon in some way, shape or form in this anthology. A particular story still gives me the shivers when I think about it, but I'm not going to give it away. Again, what scares you may be very dif

The author gifted me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is my first book by Kenya Moss-Dyme and I was very pleased with it! I loved the stories in this anthology, some of them gave me genuine chills! Very entertaining, and some were very surprising! You did not know where the story was going until you get to the end. I love how she explained before each story where they came from. Anyone who loves classic horror will NOT be disappointed with this!

Not what I expected but in a good way!!

I was really skeptical at first I wanted something different to read and this gave me what I wanted. Didn't like the first story and started to request a refund but glad I kept reading. Wish they were full books especially that last story. Keep up the good work

Loved the separate stories. Makes me more cautious about who I am approaching and how I treat people. Sometimes you never know. Karma definitely had fun in these twisted versions of accounts gone wrong or right.
