Day three of the #31AuthorsofHalloween introduces you to the author David Owain Hughes. The author of Psychological Breakdown.
If you love terror, this is the author to try. Psychological Breakdown consists of eighteen short stories that will make your brain explode of complete horror. And that is not all he has written.
Brain Damaged was recently released at the end of September. Twenty short stories of complete terror that will shake you to your core. If you like horror, smut, dark comedy, etc., this is the book for you.
He has been a part of many anthologies that consist of array of horror authors. And let me tell you, I love horror just as much as the next bloody fan. And when there are authors such as Mr. Hughes around to share the twisted gore that goes on his noodle, I jump with glee.

Short stories with cliff hangers? Yes please
The Abyss Beyond the Reflection is a combination of science fiction and horror. I love anything that involves those two genres, and the fact that there is the best of both worlds in one book is amazing!!!
There were some stories where they just . . . Ended. I wanted more. Some just ended and I was fine with the cliff hanger.
What was my favorite story? It would have to be the first one, The Abyss Beyond the Reflection. A man goes into “The Experience”. An office that allows everyday people to be plugged into the minds of celebrities. They can see, feel, hear, and hear their thoughts. The main character decides he wants to plug-in to one of the young starlets, and finds out that there is a terrible tragedy that has occurred and he witnessed it. Well, that is an understatement. He ends up unplugging, and tries to save her. Well, I will just leave it at that.
Another one of my favorites was The White Sea. A ship with a crew and a man who accompanied them. He finds out that there is a dark truth to the captain, the sea, and the ship. That there is a sacrifice to be made to get to where they need to go.
You do have to go into the book with an open mind as they are psychological thrillers. They make you think, and see what you have never seen before. The stories are dark, exciting, mysterious, and amazing.
I rate the book 5/5. Each story had me at the edge of my seat. Wanting more.
