Day 28 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – James M. Gabagat

About James M. Gabagat

James M. Gabagat was born and raised in the California Bay Area. He has studied art, music industry, and psychology, but grew bored of all that, finally chose to stop lying to himself, and decided to pursue writing. After working several jobs to scrape up money for a cheap laptop, he began contributing short horror stories to a few, now defunct, online magazines. It paid nearly nothing, but it was the start of his writing career. James enjoys long walks, reading, thinking quietly for long periods of time, and watching anime and awful, low-budget horror movies.

Synopsis for Pulp Dummy Dreadful

Seven tales of dread, of wicked individuals, sinister entities, and strange happenings.
Tales unsuitable for children, the fainthearted, and oversensitive, emotional types.
Tales to make you scared and depressed.

“THE MAGIC OF MR. AND MRS. CRUFF” While little Lucy’s mommy and daddy fight and throw stuff at each other, she hides in her room and talks to friendly shadow people, who give her all the junk food she wants.

“DUWENDE” In exchange for booze and smokes, the mystical, tiny man grants Santiago a wish. When it comes, Santiago isn’t thrilled. He’s disgusted.

“SOUL BURN” The powerful new drug is only sold to “special individuals” and Dominic is one of them. He soon experiences the mind-blowing trip, but it totally isn’t rad.

“THE ME” Kurt receives terrifying text messages…From himself?

“ASLEEP FOR SERENA” The girl of his dreams. The girl he only knows in his dreams. The girl he truly loves. Rob will finally meet her.

“NO WAY, MAN” Janet’s daughter is distressed and won’t stop crying. “No way, man,” the three-year-old keeps saying, “no way, man.” What does it mean?

“THE GUMMY WORM GIRL” She’s a horridly deformed enigma and she loves gummy worms. She’s about to change a candy store employee’s life.

Pulp Dummy Dreadful.
Some bastards won’t go to hell soon enough.

My Review for Pulp Dummy Dreadful

I have to say, I am really loving the short stories. I have never really enjoyed them until this year, obviously from my posts. I have to say, they were all amazing! My favorite one is “The Gummy Worm Girl”, sad ending, but it goes to show you that no matter how someone looks, you must always be friendly. Which one is your favorite?

Synopsis for The Nurse

Twenty years ago, something very bad happened in this house. But it’s over now. I promise.”

When Rachel moves to a new house with her mother, she immediately realizes that something isn’t quite right. Although she’s blind, Rachel can tell that the stories about the house’s past don’t add up. And slowly, she starts to worry that someone or something from that past might still be around.

Soon, Rachel learns the story of the house’s previous occupant, a troubled nurse who spent every waking moment caring for a sick old man. The nurse eventually lost her mind, resulting in a series of horrific murders, but have the events of that awful time truly been left behind? Or is something stirring in the night, something that only Rachel seems to notice?

The Nurse is the story of a girl who finds herself trapped in a sinister house, and a woman who believes she’s being haunted by the ghost of a long-dead child. Contains scenes of violence.

My Review for The Nurse

Both horrific and sad, I guarantee you that you will not be able to put this book down. I was not expecting the ending. Jumping from past to present, parts will start linking together, pieces of the puzzle will start to form the picture. As I was reading the book, I was searching for answers, until finally it came out into the open. Even at work, I was thinking about this story to find out what was connecting the two women and the house. Until the end.
