Praise for The Nightmare Collection:
"The Nightmare Collection is a stunning showcase of vivid prose. Alluring and provocative, emotive and often amusing, this is storytelling of the highest order. Boston once again demonstrates why he is the undisputed master of dark poetry." – Michael McBride, author of the God's End trilogy and Bloodletting
"Bruce Boston is a sorcerer – he can conjure the most powerful and visceral emotions out of a few words. The Nightmare Collection is horror poetry at its very finest...and creepiest. It's a midnight waltz of surreal images. Highly recommended!" – Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award author, fiction and nonfiction, for Ghost Road Blues and The Crytopedia
