Praise for Tales of the Macabre, Vol. 1
"This book was full of nail-biting moments. The book was full of variety that kept you engaged and wanting to read the next story"
"Newton Webb never disappoints. His debut collection includes most of his best stories, spanning a huge amount of time and going through a great variety of settings. Some are novelettes, others more of a typical short story length, always well written, with a fantastic use of the English language"
"These 16 scary stories are really, really good! My absolute favorites of the bunch were Festival of the Damned and The Heir Apparent (man, what a twist I was NOT expecting!)"
"This was a very enjoyable collection of eerily prophetic stories, full of variety and encompassing a world of demonic entities, cannibalism, ghouls, murder, ancient curses and deviant sex addiction. From folk horror to supernatural sci-fi tales, what more could you wish for? Each story slowly unfolds with a sense of unease and menace, complimented by many unexpected twists and turns. The moral theme of these stories would appear to be, 'be careful of what you wish for'. Highly recommended"

Allow me to wet your whistle with what's coming:
* A seventeenth-century girl’s family is exiled from town because her father committed an unspeakable crime. When they can’t survive in the wilderness on their own, can she outlast murder and cannibalism with her morality intact?
* A sinister black fog rolls in from the ocean. When those taken by the sea return with it, can a man withstand his dead mother’s wrath?
* She’s bound tightly to a chair. Her father inexplicably tortures her. When the truth is revealed, will either of them live to tell the tale?
