Description

From the critically acclaimed author of Sea of Rust and Queen of the Dark Things comes a hair-raising collection of short fiction that illuminates the strange, humorous, fantastical, and downright diabolical that tantalize and terrorize us: demons, monsters, zombie dinosaurs, and Death itself.

In the novella "The Soul Thief's Son" C. Robert Cargill returns to the terrain of the Queen of the Dark Things to continue the story of Colby Stevens . . .

A Triceratops and an Ankylosaurus join forces to survive a zombie apocalypse that may spell extinction for their kind in "Hell Creek" . . .

In a grand old building atop a crack in the world, an Iraq War veteran must serve a one-year term as a punisher of the damned condemned to consume the sins of others in the hope that one day he may find peace in "In a Clean, White Room" (co-authored with Scott Derrickson) . . .

In "The Town That Wasn't Anymore," the village of Pine Hill Bluff loses its inhabitants one at a time as the angry dead return when night falls to steal the souls of the living . . .

And in the title story, "We Are Where the Nightmares Go," a little girl crawls through a glowing door beneath her bed and finds herself trapped in a nightmarish wonderland—a crucible of the fragments of children's bad dreams.

These tales and four more are assembled here as testament to Cargill's mastery of the phantasmagoric, making We Are Where the Nightmares Go and Other Stories a collection of unnerving horror and fantasy will keep you up all night and haunt your waking dreams.

        Cargill (Sea of Rust) explores the thin line between the living and the dead, and more, in this entertaining collection of 10 tales that embrace the best elements of old-school horror and dark fantasy. In the eerie, atmospheric “The Town That Wasn’t Anymore,” a dying, fog-drenched West Virginia town hosts the angry shades of more than 200 people killed in a mine collapse, and they now seek to inhabit the living. A sheriff, a priest, and their small posse try to keep the spirits at bay in an increasingly futile battle. In the terrific, terrifying “Hell Creek,” a triceratops and an ankylosaurus team up to fight a hoard of zombie tyrannosaurs and other undead dinos after a mass extinction event. In “The Last Job Is Always the Hardest,” someone who intends to bomb a passenger train gets a very unusual job offer, and in the title story, a girl finds a door in her wall leading to a place of dark wonders. Not all of the tales work: “Hell They Call Him, the Screamers” is simply stomach-churning. But Cargill has a gift for haunting imagery as well as exuberant gore, and most of his horror has a beating heart, albeit a bloody one. His fans will be thrilled by this strong collection.
