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.
Brad can be found at Facebook at Bradley Convissar author and Twitter at @bconvisdmd

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.

I read the author's free short story 'Blink' and liked it well enough to take a chance buying his book. It's an excellent, well-written book without any of the grammar and spelling errors that dominate so many other books. His stories were very interesting (my favorites being 'To Don', 'The Madam Penitent', and 'Just Meat'. I really liked the author's writing style and fully agree with what he has to say in his introduction. That the current trend in horror stories is to have violence just for the sake of violence and sex just for the sake of sex. There is violence and sex in these stories but they are woven into the plot and do not seem out of place. It's a great delight to me to read an author who can balance these things so well. I also bought his book 'Dogs of War' and can't wait to read it. Just to clarify also, I am a real reader and not some review-bot doing this review just to oomph up the book's rating. I recommend this book heartily and intend to buy his other Pandora books.

I borrowed this as my monthly free book for Prime Members. The writing style was tight and the stories short enough to read in one sitting. Since I just finished it, the last story is the one that's sticking...I still have a lump in my throat and am wiping at my eyes. It was different from the rest of the stories which were more paranormal in nature - it was a tearjerker, be forewarned.

I'm already browsing the author's other books to see what I can grab today.

I read mostly Stephen King. I read a little Dean Koontz, Michael Chrichton and Patricia Cornwell. I love horror stories and pretty much like mysteries. I keep coming back to Stephen King because - well, let's face it, he is the master.

I now must apologize to Mr. King because I've found another Author that keeps me awake at night not being able to put his book down. I just finished Pandora 's Children: The Complete Nightmares Book 1 by Bradley Convissar. By the end of the third story, I found myself purchasing Book 2 and several other books of his. Every story in this book was very good and kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to get to the end, then being disappointed that it did end. I was sure I knew just what was coming in each story and how it would end. I was wrong... very wrong!

I'm definitely not a literary critic, but I know what I like and I like Bradley Convissar. I'm not giving up on Stephen King but between his books I've got Bradley and between Bradley's books, I've got Stephen King.

Life is good, and horrifying! By the way, if he's as good a Dentist as he is a writer, I'm still staying with Dr. Van Pelt!

I loved all the stories, but the misspelled and missing words drove me crazy. There were so many they distracted me from the stories. This book needs a proofreader really bad! I would still recommend this book, and hopefully when I read Pandora`s Children volume 2 the spelling and missing words won't be as bad. After thinking about this book for a few days, I decided to change my rating from 3 to 4 stars the stories were great, even with all the misspelled and missing words.

I purchased this book to get my horror fix and I was not disappointed. There are several stories, all very enjoyable. What was great was I thought I figured out many of the endings only to be surprised in all cases. This is a great book if you only have a short time to read and don't want to stop in the middle of the story as they take at most 20 minutes to read each.

I was intrigued by the introduction to 'Pandora's Children ' and after reading the short stories I agree completely with it.I have found a new author to get excited about! I found these stories easy to read- like listening to ghost stories around the campfire.Will definitely be buying more from him. If you were a fan of the 'I Shiver at Your Touch' collections of short horror stories you will like this book. If you are a fan of old school horror or if your old and like horror you will like this book. I will be sharing him with all my friends!

I have not even finished this book yet and I am really enjoying it! In the introduction, the author refers to the 80's style horror fiction (which is the best, in my opinion) and he's hit it spot on! The stories are well written and suspenseful and not just scary, but horrifying....sometimes our minds are scarier than any space spider or alien or what have you. Great book!

What a great collection of short stories! I cannot recall reading such a good set of stories since I picked up Clive Barker's The Books of Blood as a teenager. I cannot recall having read such good horror fiction in a very long time. Highly recommended!
