    Smashwords does have some good stuff & this is one of the gems, just 5 short horror stories totaling 39 pages, but well worth reading. I'm pretty hard to please with horror stories since most of it has been done so much that there isn't much shock value left. Chapman proves there is some, though. He has a truly creepy mind. (Just stay away from me, Greg. I will NOT invite you into my home.) ;-) The book is free on Smashwords here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/...

(Just stay away from me, Greg. I will NOT invite you into my home.) ;-) The book is free on Smashwords here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/... Precious Blood was possibly the best story of the bunch. A wonderfully horrible mood piece, I could almost feel the cold. 5 stars Relish another great mood piece of a truly fitting & horrible revenge, if a bit predictable. 4 stars Hell-O-Ween is only getting 3 stars because I don't get it. The longest story of the bunch, it was very good in a lot of ways, but over all I just didn't get it. The idea of trick or treating in Hell is cool, but it didn't make much sense. I got who all the gift givers were except the last one. Maybe if I'd picked up the last reference, it would have had a better impact, but I didn't & the ending was either so obvious as to be weak or else I missed the point. Patrick Oswald Edwards 4 stars but it might have been 5 if I'd known who Pym was. The only one I can remember is Antman in the comics & that doesn't make sense. Anyway, even without knowing that, it was creepy cool. The Breath of An Instant when I first read it, I gave it 3 stars. The more I think about it, the more horrible it is, so make it 4.

    Reading Midnight Theatre: Tales of Terror is like stepping through a multi-layered universe created by Greg Chapman. Each story weaves facts interlaced with references to events in history or literature pieces. I can’t divulge more than to avoid giving the stories away. I can, however, give couple of examples of how the novella affected me; I feel the time differently now, especially any references to Déjà vu; Halloween will hold new dark corners for me, in those corners other beings dwell, engr Reading Midnight Theatre: Tales of Terror is like stepping through a multi-layered universe created by Greg Chapman.

I can, however, give couple of examples of how the novella affected me; I feel the time differently now, especially any references to Déjà vu; Halloween will hold new dark corners for me, in those corners other beings dwell, engrossed in their own activities. This book gave me the same feeling I got when I watched the movie Dark City, it has a delicious mixture of darkness, intrigue, and hope for the best. A brilliant read for horror aficionados.

    Greg Chapman offers us a sample of his work with these five short and darkly entertaining tales. All five are tales of supernatural terror, but that is where the similarity ends; each is very different from the others. My favourites were the enigmatic tale about a writer who will be instantly recognisable to any fan of horror and mystery, and the final tale - an exploration of time and the cruel games it can play.

    Midnight Theatre is a treat for horror lovers everywhere. This collection of 5 shorts begins with Precious Blood. Father Duncan Malloy is a priest at a small Catholic Church in Ireland and just before closing the doors for the night, he is coerced into the confessional by someone who's been around for a very, very long time. From a vampire tale in Ireland to a story of the undead in New Orleans, next up is Relish, which starts with Jerry Thornton "naked, tied up in the the dark, in the middle of Midnight Theatre is a treat for horror lovers everywhere.

From a vampire tale in Ireland to a story of the undead in New Orleans, next up is Relish, which starts with Jerry Thornton "naked, tied up in the the dark, in the middle of nowhere and he didn't know why." I thoroughly enjoyed Hell-O-Ween. There's something about demon children "Trick or Treating" in Hell that just makes me smile. There's also Patrick Oswald Edwards, a piece which reminded me of Edgar Allen Poe, might've been the reference to The Pit and the Pendulum, but I was actually thinking of Poe before I even got to that part. Chapman finishes strong with a story about time in The Breadth of An Instance. My favorite or as Greg would say, "favourite", he's Australian after all. All 5 stories are imbued with strong prose, something he has in common with Canadian Horror writer Rio Youers. That's pretty good company. Going into this collection, I knew that Greg Chapman excelled at the Novella, having given 5 stars to both Torment and The Noctuary. After reading Midnight Theatre, I am convinced he can write short fiction as well. I just wish he's get around to writing a full-length novel. Something I could really get lost in for a few days. As of the writing of this review, Midnight Theatre, is available for free from Smashwords. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view...

    This is one of the books that I grabbed in the free section on the Kobo site and I'm ridiculously pleased that I did. I came to this collection of short stories with no expectations and I am delighted by what I got. Chapman has a great sense for the grotesque without getting too carried away. Some of the stories lacked a little though the potential for more is definitely there. I won't go into too much detail because each story is its own animal and I think there's something great in there for a This is one of the books that I grabbed in the free section on the Kobo site and I'm ridiculously pleased that I did.

Some of the stories lacked a little though the potential for more is definitely there. I won't go into too much detail because each story is its own animal and I think there's something great in there for any kind of horror fan. If you like your horror to be good, gory and vivid, keep an eye on Greg Chapman's stuff.

    A compilation of short stories superbly written by Greg Chapman. All stories are different, with some excerpts of his other published works. My favourite story was 'Relish." If you like short horror stories, I thoroughly recommend this book. I look forward to reading more of his work. A compilation of short stories superbly written by Greg Chapman.

    Series of very short, unrelated "scary" stories, none of which were scary. It was okay. Not what I expected, but I guess worth the read since it's only 25 pages.
