From time to time when I take a break from researching and writing my thrillers, I write short stories such as the ones collected for the first time in this new anthology, Trust and Other Nightmares. Each of these stories has its germination in nights when my sleep was suddenly savaged by ethereal visions and sounds sufficiently disturbing to wrench me from tangled, sweat-drenched sheets. Some of them have seen a bit of daylight before now, and the last two debut here. All of them are spawned of the dancing skeletons and reanimated corpses that plague the bleakest, blackest hours preceding my blessed dawns. They include Trust, without which a murder-suicide pact is merely revenge’s favorite recipe; Rougarou, where a terrified boy learns it’s never easy to tell monsters from saviors in a desolate Louisiana swamp; Frankie’s Last Affair, where we’re taught that if a thing is truly art, someone has to suffer for it; Canis, a post-apocalyptic tale where the wolves in sheep’s clothing have no lock on cross-dressing, and Showtime, in which a famous television psychic medium’s dirty secret is he knows there’s no such thing as ghosts.

I hope you enjoy this collection. If it scares you enough to keep you up a night or two, I know just how you feel. As this anthology demonstrates, I sleep well rarely.

About the Author

Richard Gazala was born in Ohio, at the bleeding edge of the 1960s. When he was young, his family moved to Beirut, Lebanon, where he lived until the Lebanese Civil War erupted. After Beirut, he finished high school in Belmont, Massachusetts, and London, England. While living abroad he traveled around the Middle East and Europe, picking up enough Arabic and French to embrace or avoid trouble as circumstances dictated. He attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, where he earned a B.A. and a J.D. He has practiced law for over twenty years, and is a member of the bar of the United States Supreme Court. He currently lives in Vienna, Virginia, where he's a thriller author, voracious reader and reviewer, lawyer, music aficionado, youth sports coach, guerrilla chef, excursionist, and public speaker.

"Trust and Other Nightmares" is his first short story anthology, but his second book. His first is the award-winning international conspiracy thriller, "Blood of the Moon."
