Dark things stir in the night. When the world sleeps and quiet settles in, shadows assume sinister shapes, guilt and regret well up from the mind’s deepest recesses, and the lonely face their greatest fears. Darkness bares the secret truths whispered on the lips of the lost and the desperate. At night, terrors come alive. For those who journey too far into the dark, no esc ...more

On the Night Border by Bram Stoker award winning author James Chambers is a short story horror collective that offers a little bit of everything for any horror fan. From stories that are straight up horror filled, some with elements of fantasy, lore and the macabre, Chambers has captured something truly frightening in each one of the fifteen stories in this collective. Stories that I enjoyed reading include:

Marco Polo: We have all played this game when we were kids, but in this story Marco Polo/>Marco

Beautifully put together Raw Dog Screaming Press release with a gorgeous cover by Danielle Serra. This book has great flow from story to story, dark and twisted stories sprinkled with strains of Lovecraftian lore. It is definitely a page turner, 15 stories spread across 209 pages will leave wanting more and like me, seeking out more of Chamber's work.

Some highlights/favorites -
Memnocide - you can exorcise painful memories by eliminating the witnesses of those memories

I was really excited when I received this collection of short stories because this is the first time I've read a book by James Chambers. And now that I have, I'll definitely want to read more.

Okay, this is going to be a long review because I've got a little something to say about every single story.

Thank you so much Raw Dog Screaming Press for sending me a copy of On the Night Border in exchange for an honest review.

I really enjoyed this collection. I've never read anything by James Chambers before but I'm interested in checking out more of his work!

On the Night Border is a short story collection where all the stories traverse that misty line between waking and the world of dreams. Each story had a dreamlike, ethereal feel to it. It was like lucid dreaming; you know you're dreaming but y

With an introduction by horror legend Linda Addison, things get off to a very memorable start in the latest short story collection from Bram Stoker Award®-winning horror author James Chambers. As Linda asserts, the stories herein are memorable, bold, and evocative. They have a cinematic quality to them, indeed making one feel the same immediacy as watching a film rather than reading a narrative. Additionally, Chambers has a knack for streamlined narratives whether he’s taking on an established p ...more

On the Night Border is a short story collection that includes quite a few types of horror. A lot of it was psychological and eerie. This was my first book by this author but I think I’ll be checking more out from him.

The entire book was well written and really dreamy. But dreamy in a nightmare kind of way. Each story was well done and I’d recommend it to anyone who wants a quick horror collection.
