Tim Waggoner's Dark and Distant Voices: A Story Collection is quite the short story collection. Bizarre, weird, and utterly intriguing the stories found here will get under your skin. Included are stories from past publications and one original to this collection. Accompanied by interior illustrations done by Luke Spooner, who by the way also did the cover art, this makes for one totally brilliant read. -- Horror Novel Reviews

Sometimes it’s just a simple trip to out to take care of business or the meeting of someone new that can cause feelings of unease. You begin to doubt yourself, am I being paranoid? Every once in a while, you really should heed that inner voice.
Reality is skewed when life-giving sunlight can drain the living of what we thought it was giving. Where the term rebirth becomes a literal experience. Where… what we thought was going to be an enjoyable reading of short stories leaves us feeling discombobulated and a bit taken aback.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I did enjoy all these tales and I think you will too. For me, my take on the cover art says it all, reality bites! The subtle horror lurking within each story will surely make this one memorable collection. Don’t pass this one up.
From the classic monster type story Blood and Bone; custom made for lunch hour on those bad days at work; to the just plain creepy Doozer is a Happy Cancer and on through all the rest it is a great ride. This collection takes you on a guided tour through the surreal side life, from everyday situations and on into the bizarre.
My favorite might be the last, and “true” story as it combines the elements of biography, sci-fi and horror into one story.
This is a collection to keep on the shelf and sip a little at a time like a good bottle of wine.
I loved it!
