Editorial Reviews

Horror News Network - Alicia Banks
"This anthology brings together two of my great loves: science fiction and horror, with some speculative fiction thrown in for good measure. This is what happens if the works of Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, H.P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King consummated and had a baby."
Horror News - Dave Gammon
"Ominous Realities boasts a formidable array of talented writers. The diversity of voice, style and prose is extraordinary and truly has something for everyone. Ominous Realities stands on its own in terms of appeal, allure and integrity."
