Book Description

Unimaginable horror.
Terrifying rage.
Twisted desires.
Strange appetites.

All these marvelous things and more await those who dare to read Bedtime Stories For The Damned

***Now featuring a FREE excerpt from the new novel Handbook for a Teenage Antichrist.***

Included stories:


The police came calling on Dr. Gordon the day after his patient was found dead, locked in a safe. The only item the dead man had in the safe was a journal.

A journal that contained a plea for help, along with a dark secret from the man’s childhood.


It happened fast: a tossed clock, a trashcan.

Then Carla lost herself to the rage and everything changed.


Six people woke up this morning.

Six contestants spread across the small city of Solo, Texas. All playing a twisted man's game.

A man that may be more than he seems at first glance.


Truck driver Buddy Pritchard was heading home to his wife and young daughter, but a chance encounter with an organic jerky saleswoman may keep him from ever seeing them alive again.

Coming from reading Bloodworth's short stories on /r/nosleep, I thought I knew what I was expecting when I started reading this book. I was wrong. In a good way. A very good, dark, and twisted way. This is an amazing collection of short stories that truly will keep you up at night, and looking over your shoulder for weeks after you've finished. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Once you finished, immediately move on to his second novel: Handbook For A Teenage Antichrist. And as always, don't forget to dance.

Cannot get enough of this author. This collection of short stories (The Box, Love, John A., and Jeremiah 19:9), is a must-own for any horror fan. Start with these stories, then move onto Handbook For A Teenage Antichrist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection! March 6, 2014

I was sucked in from the very first page. The stories definitely kept you reading and the one that creeped me out the most was John A. I couldn't wait to see how that one ended and it did not disappoint. I kinda figured out the endings to 2 of the stories, but still enjoyed the way they were written (it just shows that someone else has a demented mind like mine!). I definitely will be reading more from this author.

More About the Author

Christopher Bloodworth is a writer based in-yeah, no. Sorry, folks, but I'm not going to chode it up here by talking about myself in third-person. Here's everything you need to know about me: I want to scare you.

That's not entirely correct though. I want to violate you. I want to reach through the page and tear away your calm. I want to give you nightmares. I want to make you keep turning the pages of my stories because you have to know what happens next, but I want you to absolutely dread finding out what that is.

That's my goal.

I write horror/suspense books.

I also like taking long walks on sandy beaches with my dog, Dina.
