White Trash & Recycled Nightmares

by Rebecca Rowland

Genre: Horror Short Stories 

 

A workaholic splits his time between home and hotel rooms until an anonymous cryptic message arrives, setting off a wrinkle in the time continuum and slowly shredding his sanity. Elsewhere, a woman's jealousy over her spouse's connection with their only child boils over, leading her to see monsters everywhere except the mirror. University fraternity brothers discover that a cruel prank has dire consequences but the full extent of their punishment is yet to come, while an intrepid hiker explores an abandoned Cold War facility hidden within a Massachusetts mountain only to realize that military secrets aren't the only things buried within.


From witches, wendigos, and werecats to sirens, sadists, and serial killers, Rebecca Rowland serves readers a twenty-tale meal of cosmic, creature, and quiet horror in platters heaping with unsettling trepidation. In Rowland's long-awaited follow-up to The Horrors Hiding in Plain Sight, a lighted room provides no safe haven, and in the darkest corner of the basement waits a ravenous dread.


The most sinister objects of fear are never truly discarded...just repurposed.


Includes a foreword by Mary SanGiovanni.


Advance praise for White Trash & Recycled Nightmares

"Rowland's confident and poetic prose slices its way under your skin and lifts the veil on visceral, disturbing, and shocking terrors residing just beneath the norm.” -Tim Lebbon, bestselling author of The Last Storm

"There's nobody out there like Rebecca Rowland. These stories are razor-sharp, clever, and horrifying in all the best ways. Read everything she's written, starting with this collection." -Gwendolyn Kiste, Three-time Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Rust Maidens and Reluctant Immortals

"A powerfully evocative collection—packed with beautiful writing and deeply unsettling stories.” -Brian Keene

Rebecca Rowland is a dangerous lady. She is cynical, lascivious, ironic, blood-thirsty, ice-cold, but also warmly feminist (unless the gals aren't worth it), a guy-lover (until the boys get a little too much toxic masculinity), and at any moment, she's ready to throw old snow beasts, walls of giant bugs, and…well, what's your nightmare? She will hand it to you freshly minted and explode your mind. You've been warned. Now read this book.”-Felice Picano

These are some nasty stories with brutal, heartbreaking endings and shocking revelations. Rowland’s characters feel like real people, so much so that you won’t necessarily want those stories to end.” -Paula D. Ashe, Shirley Jackson Award-winning author of We Are Here to Hurt Each Other

"Sometimes shocking, sometimes mean, but always darkly entertaining, Rowland's WHITE TRASH & RECYCLED NIGHTMARES makes the dread tangible in each story.” -Kevin Kangas, director of Fear of Clowns

"Rebecca Rowland comes with all guns blazing. WHITE TRASH & RECYCLED NIGHTMARES is a top-tier collection of stories that fans of horror fiction will devour. The writing and characters are strong, and the concepts are both sinister and memorable.

Make some space on your shelf for this one.” -Rio Youers
