When sinister dreams plague his sleep, overworked college senior Matthew Morris does his best to take it in stride, until his waking hours also become something out of a nightmare. Hideous faces appear in mirrors. Strange odors materialize and suddenly vanish. A shadowy figure lurks by his bedside at night.

Though the people closest to Matthew are convinced that psychiatrists and meds are exactly what he needs, Matthew refuses to accept that insanity lies at the root of his problems. Struggling against the increasingly horrific events that continue to assail him, Matthew resolves to find the cause of his recent misfortunes – or die trying.

About Ben

Ben writes fiction of a darker nature, what most would refer to as "horror". He doesn't write much in the way of "extreme horror" per se, preferring to craft tales that are more eerie than outright gory (most of the time). Interested in learning more? Check out Ben's Bio.


Keep up to date with Ben's ramblings and meaningless observations at Ben's Blog.  Expect a wide array of topics from writing (of course), to gardening, to the frustrations of setting up a retro arcade with Raspberry Pi - anything is fair game.
