Book Description

"Every tale is born in truth, just as every tree comes from a seed. And so it is in these tales that we learn about life, fiction and fact both leading us along. Which road you choose to follow, which details you choose to believe, I leave up to you, dear listeners."

And so begin three dark tales at a nameless inn on the edge of the New World. Three stories told in lieu of gold, payment for refuge and a feast. Three tales that may reveal or conceal a storyteller's darkest secrets.

- The Hag's Reckoning -

At forest's edge lives a twisted woman, a creature the children will soon learn to fear. When a prank goes wrong and accusations of witchcraft are spoken, a cruel vengeance is unleashed and a dark reckoning comes.

- The Elder of Aldritch -

A dying vineyard serves as the staging grounds for experiments that seek to unlock the energies of the earth. An arcane scientist, a spoiled son, the perfect wine, and an imperfect murder.

-The Timberman's Daughter -

A traveling tutor, a beautiful daughter, and a forbidden love turned to terror on one bloody night.

A fusion of dark fantasy and horror, A FEAST OF INFINITE ROT is a novella of intelligent tales of terror all tied together by a traveller whose eyes have seen twisted horrors few would believe. Savored by themselves or devoured altogether, these stories are sure to leave the reader unsettled.

Come in from the cold world outside.
Savor the smell of spiced meat and mulled wine.
And sink your teeth in to A FEAST OF INFINITE ROT.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Gruesomely Good Time December 5, 2012
By Scatty
Format:Kindle Edition
Right off the back I knew this was going to be a good story. I loved the author's writing style and it was so easy for me to imagine what was happening. As the story progressed I was drawn in even more, wondering what each of these stories had to tell. They were dark and gruesome but yet so enticing to see where things were going to go.

Nothing could have prepared me for the ending though! I was just speechless as I flipped through the final pages. I had to just sit there for a moment to soak in what had actually happened. Even now I'm still just baffled.

The novella keeps you interested throughout the entire story and then near the end you start creeping towards the front of your seat. And finally the seat is just ripped out from beneath you and you're just sitting there wide eyed and a dropped jaw.

A gruesome and wonderfully told story and a great introduction to Andrew Van Wey's writing style.

My Rating: ★★★★★

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Fairy Tales January 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories within the story are what made this book a 5 for me. They're twisted fairy tales before they have been cleaned up by the movie industry. I guessed part of the ending, but not the whole thing. The middle stories sucked me in so much that the ending was left as enough of a surprise. This author is a great storyteller just like the protagonist in this book. If you like dark and magical tales, this book is perfect for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nobody does horror like Andrew Van Wey! January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Brought to you by OBS reviewer Autumn

Andrew Van Wey is one of horror's new avant-garde. Not the overtly graphic type, but the kind that creeps up on you from behind and whispers coldly in your ear.

A Feast of Infinite Rot is a compilation of sorts that is tied together by the storyteller himself, a traveller. A weary man finds himself in a secluded Inn with only the staff and all they require for payment for his food and lodging is that he tells them three stories. He claims that all of these stories are based on real events in his life and he invites them to sit back and bear witness.

Each of these short stories will give you a good case of the chills in and of itself but lurking in the background is a twist that you will never see coming.

I really enjoy Van Wey's subtle style and they way he leads the reader right where he wants them to go. I would recommend reading this book at high noon in the middle of a sea of people. You'll feel safer that way...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. April 14, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A great book! A storyteller tells 3 stories inside a very strange inn... and every story, that at first seems disconnected, will come together at the end. Very well written, excelent atmosphere, very good stories and an overwall great book. Highly recommended.

Not my favorite Van Wey book but still a great read. He really grips your fear at its core and shakes it violently, making you plea for mercy and more simultaneously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner from Van Wey! February 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another great book by Andrew Van Wey. Completely different than his last two, but it draws you in immediately and keeps you interested all the way through. The book is very creepy and a must-read for horror buffs, and there is a great twist at the end that you won't see coming (as in all of Van Wey's books). Again, I highly recommend this book and any book by Van Wey. I can't wait for the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars a good read December 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Bet you cannot complete the plot of this book after reading the first few pages. Van Wey really disguises where we are going with the plot and this is certainly one of the things that makes it so enjoyable. Won't tell you of the finish, but that is an exceptional twist. Enjoy it, I did.

More About the Author

Andrew Van Wey was born in Palo Alto, California, spent part of his childhood in New England, and currently lives as an expatriate abroad where he doubts his sanity on a daily basis.

As a child of the late 80's and early 90's, Andrew fondly remembers a time when cell phones were the size of bricks, a good scare could be found in a stack of torn Stephen King books, vampires didn't glimmer nor hang around high schools, and a sleepover was best spent scaring friends with low budget horror on VHS.

Years later Andrew still takes that same joy in being a purveyor of frights and writes well into the night. He takes his cues from a foundation built on films like Jacob's Ladder, Angelheart, The Exorcist, and such fiction as The Shining, Ghost Story, and The Damnation Game. Readers have called his stories: "Beautifully written," -- "Stunning," -- "The Scariest Book I've Ever Read!"

When he's not writing Andrew can probably be found hiking, playing video games, or walking his Old English Sheepdog "Daenerys" along the rivers and hills of East Asia. He loves to travel, drink single malt scotch, and geek out about D&D and technology. He considers gelato and pizza to be a perfectly acceptable meal, and shorts to be business-casual if paired with a scarf.
