I’ve been posting fiction on Reddit for a few years. Some of the stories have been shared pretty far and wide, made into narrations and movies, and translated into multiple languages. I’ve collected 10 of the most popular of the horror stories into a little 10,000 word e-book. It’ll be the first of four short collections of equal size, the other three will be fantasy, sci-fi and creative non-fiction that I’ve written. Once all three collections are completed, I’ll eventually combine the four of them into a printed book with illustrations drawn by me.
Below is the cover, title, and book description:
Horrible Writing: 10 Horror Stories You Probably Shouldn’t Read by Daniel Charles Wild
These 10 horror stories were originally posted online under a pseudonym. Some of them have taken on a life of their own. Cumulatively the stories written under this name have been read by tens—possibly hundreds—of thousands. Some have been translated into other languages, and many have been featured on podcasts, SoundCloud, and YouTube channels. A few have even been made into short movies.
I’ve edited and collected the most horrible of the stories here. You probably shouldn’t read these; they aren’t good for you. Still, I enjoyed writing them, and lots of people enjoyed reading them. You might too.
They are about horrible things that happened and might yet happen. Upsetting things like rewatching movies we’ve all seen, what happens when we’re sleeping, and the horror of unconditional love. Creepy stories about trying to go home, things that happen at coffee shops, a strange flu, and a dog that wants so badly to be good. Disturbing things like appreciating art, the choices we make, and to end it all—a caricaturist’s love note to you, and you, and you. All awful, unbearable things. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
