You know when a horror story is good when it makes you look over your shoulder or question every sound you hear. “Did You Forget About Me?” caused me to pause in my daily activities and wonder if the sounds I hear at night are real or just a figment of my imagination.
The dead visiting us…
The dead calling us to them….
Both scenarios are frightening and worth losing sleep over.
“Did You Forget About Me?” is definitely a horror story worth reading.
"Knock and You Will See Me"
When I was much younger, I was captivated and freaked out by two blockbuster movies — The Sixth Sense (1999) and the original Flatliners (1990). The very notion someone could see dead people, the dead could interact with the living, scared the daylights out of me. This gift of seeing, hearing, or interacting with the dead was frightening, much like Knock and You Will See Me.
When we bury a friend or loved one, we hope he or she is going on to a better place. Our wish is for their suffering to be finally over. If that’s not the case, it makes you rethink dying and those we’ve buried. Also, if Death comes after you or someone you love, who can really sleep soundly at night.
Eerie notes, knocking noises, maggots, and black ooze would be enough to send chills down anyone’s spine but Andrew took it a step further. He tapped into the unknown and brought the boogeyman to Ellie Ray’s door… literally. She fought it. Her children fought it. In the end, I didn’t feel like their story was truly over. Death never goes away; therefore, I can see why Knock and You Will See Me didn’t end with a typical conclusion.
Some readers might be hoping for a more complete ending. Actually, I was expecting more as well. I tapped more than once on my kindle thinking this can’t be the end. It didn’t feel like it should be the end. Yet, it was over… for me. For them, their nightmarish tale continued on. Maybe in another tale? We shall see.
A solid collection of longer short stories and a bonus short-short make up this novella-length collection from Australian writer-director Andrew Cull.
Did You Forget About Me? - Cam Miller is a struggling actor and at age thirty he has yet to make his mark. When his long-estranged father dies and leaves Cam his childhood home he contacts his sister and makes plans to visit the property. The trip brings back unpleasant memories and more. Cull makes effective use of his filmmaker's eye for detail. Although this is only a short story, Did You Forget About Me? had something that's been missing in a lot of books I've been reading recently and that's "atmosphere."
Hope and Walker - This is a charming story with a touch of horror. The opening lines, "We were both 10. But he was dead. And I sat drawing him", immediately drew me in, so important with a short story. This is one exceptional short story. Highly recommended.
The Trade - Another really strong opening line begins this story of something from the woods leaving dead things for a troubled family. "I was seven and that was the Summer death stalked our home." This tale features a slow build with a killer ending.
Knock and You Will See Me - I can't stress enough how a strong opening line can make a short story. Here's another one. "We buried Dad in the Winter. It wasn't until the Spring that we heard from him again." This is one creepy story.
The Rambling Man - A wonderfully gruesome shot to wrap up this collection.

From the author's bio - Andre Cull is a writer and director of The Dark and The Possession Of David O'Reilly (UK title: The Torment). His first novel, Remains, is due for release later this year.
Matthew Reed has been having migraines. He doesn't think they are anything special, but he's also having very vivid dreams. During the day he works a cash register at a dead end job. His life is boring and routine until one night a cat shows up outside his window. When he decides to let the cat in he learns that his life is about to become anything but boring.
I pretty much knew nothing about this story going in, and I think it's better that way. The reader learns what's happening to Matthew at the same time he does, and it adds to the confusion and tension that foster slowly builds. At the same time there is a part of the story that makes me laugh every time I think about it. One character is hilariously envisioned by Foster, and that character adds laughs to the gore and action that basically starts at the beginning and barely lets up until the end of the book. If I said anymore it would spoil the surprise.
This is Foster's third book, and I think it's my favorite of his. He expertly weaves together so many different fictional elements, and I was hooked from the very beginning. Pick this one up. And while you're at it, buy his other two books as well. Foster is an author to watch.
