About the Author

Brad spent four years earning his degree in evolutionary biology at Tulane University in New Orleans and should be, according to many of his professors, wandering the globe and searching for new animal species.  Instead, he lives in New Jersey where he practices dentistry during the day and writes at night. He is married with two children and a diabetic, half-blind wiener dog named Friday. 

His interests include, in no particular order: the Philadelphia Phillies, the Philadelphia Eagles, reading comic books, reading non-illustrated books (King, Koontz, Straub, Barker, Deaver, Butcher are among his favorite authors), listening to music (Tool, Disturbed, Godsmack, Chevelle, Three Days Grace and Nirvana are among his favorite bands) and playing video games. Sleeping is considered optional.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nudging the boundaries of good taste June 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Convissar twists sex, religion and the paranormal to create four original horror tales that nudge the boundaries of good taste in Pandora's Children: Book 3: Death Bleed Into Life.
My enjoyment of each story varied, based on both theme and style. I thought `A Matter of Faith, A Matter of Balance' had the tightest narrative, but the inspiration for the story was the most disturbing for me. Of the four I liked `The Transfer' least, the plot was fairly transparent and the ending made my skin crawl, but not in a good way. `Madame Penitent' reminded me of Steven King's early short stories with a young man on a road trip, encountering a strange building on a deserted road. The plot of `Just Meat' is closest to a traditional ghost story and I thought the idea was interesting but the execution could have been a little less sentimental.
In general, this is a well written collection of short stories that are as darkly entertaining as they are discomforting. Convissar's enthusiasm for his craft is evident in his introduction and I think he achieves his goal of writing engaging short stories that rely on psychological manipulation of perception more than descriptive shock value, in each instance. The tone and content makes these stories more suitable for an adult audience, and likely more appealing to a male reader. Pandora's Children Book 3 is a quick read that delivers the dark chills it promises, I can only hope the stories of Death Bleeds Into Life don't surface in my nightmares.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic horror, wonderfully written March 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent! All stories in this collection are great. "The Madame Penitent" is something truly special. The plot alone would make it worthwhile but it is so much more than that. Evocatively written, the prose in this story feels more like poetry (and I mean that in a good way ;)). The good doctor delivers!

I would start with this book (#3) just because it provides the best introduction to this up and coming author. Book#2 is just as great, with Book#1 a close second. The author has an additional book for free on his Smashwords page called Dark Interludes. To anyone who loves horror in the style of Stephen King or the other greats in the business, I would strongly recommend this author.

More About the Author

Brad Convissar is a dentist by day, a writer of dark fiction at night, and a father, husband, and not-so-proud pet owner when time permits.

He is the author of several dozen short stories, four novellas, and will be releasing his first novel, Blood, Smoke and Ashes, a supernatural thriller, in early 2013.

He was born in Georgia, but moved to southern New Jersey before he could be forced to be an Atlanta Braves fan. He spent his formative years living outside of Philadelphia where he latched on to the Philly sports teams and was promptly disappointed for almost twenty years. He spent his college years in New Orleans, where he earned his bachelor's degree in evolutionary biology at Tulane University, then relocated to lovely Newark New Jersey, where he earned his DMD.

After eight years of bouncing around, Brad finally settled down back in south Jersey, only miles from the house he grew up in. He is happily married and the proud father of two children. He is also "dad' to a diabetic, half-blind eight-year-old daschund named Friday who is little more than a lump on the couch most of the time.

When not filling cavities or performing root canals or extracting teeth or fabricating dentures, or writing, he spends his time playing with his kids, playing video games, reading comic books, reading non-illustrated books, and impotently rooting on his beloved Philadelphia Phillies or less than beloved Philadelphia Eagles.

His favorite authors are, but not limited to, Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Richard Matheson, Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child, Simon Green, Jim Butcher, and Jeffery Deaver. He likes to think he learned something of the art of writing from each of these authors.

To this day, he wonders how the TV show LOST got so bad, so quickly. The wasted potential of the first three seasons still haunts him.
