This book is not filled with fluff and light-hearted fun. There are no jokes, no funny musings, nothing like my other works. This book has stories not for the faint of heart or who are easily offended. It has stories dealing with the macabre nature of humans and focuses on subjects some readers my feel uncomfortable with. If you feel this book is not for you, please put it down and read something else. However, if you are ready to delve into dark, twisted tales of a horrific nature. Then enjoy your reprieve at…The Nightmare Oasis.
