Vaudeville and Other Nightmares is a collection of short stories from Australian author Greg Chapman. The introduction by Brett McBean sets the scene for what you are about to delve into with an in-depth tale of Greg's journey in the world of literature specialising in horror.

There are 24 stories with varying themes that will whet the appetite of all lovers of the short story and horror genres. I enjoyed all of the stories but there were a few that stood out from the rest, amongst my favourites are:

Vaudeville
Lost Lake
Human Resources
Mother's House
Forfeit
The Fear Centre
The Name in the Dark
A Matter of Perception
Precious Blood
The Breadth of an Instant
Baptism
Christmas Mourning
Codex Musaicum

There were a couple that I thought could easily be turned into full-length novels, two stories, in particular, are A Matter of Perception and Mother's House. All the stories have one thing in common, they bring the reader into a world beyond their own and leave you feeling just that little bit different once the tale has been told.

Simply brilliant and highly recommended to lovers of horror.
