Crazy horror story collection

Psychological Breakdown is a new short story collection, and boy, does it deliver some serious punches.

Overall, I really enjoyed this collection of crazy, messed up horror stories. If you're into delving into the dark psyches of human beings, definitely pick up a copy of Psychological Breakdown. You won't be disappointed.

If you don't own a book by Hughes, shame on you...

Reviewed by Demetrius Svette

I have been wanting to read this book for a while; actually, ever since I read Puckered (which features Mr. Hughes and also Peter Oliver Wonder). It was incredible storytelling that made me wonder what else can come from these two demented minds; I wasn't let down with this masterpiece by David Owain Hughes. Psychological Breakdown is a masterstroke because it is compiled of a collection of shorts that give you the insight into many different points of the breakdown process. A state of madness dwells within us, capable of reaching anyone at any time. A psychological breakdown. Perhaps the darkness takes over, ushering you to the brink of holding back the abuse or from wanting a taste of revenge. Maybe it's a fascination of electronics that sends you into a tailspin. Then, there are the kinky needs of sexual desires. You start to wonder if maybe you are precariously balancing that line between 'normal' and utter chaos.

Hughes' writing is delightfully messed up in all the best ways. Extreme to the max and written with wit, humor and best of all, talent. He goes there and he takes the reader with him, for every gory step of the journey. A stand out in this genre because his ideas are unique and this short story collection highlights that so well. If this is your first time reading this author then this is a perfect choice to get hooked. Every story is its own shade of shock and horror. I highly recommend this collection and this author. Not for the faint of heart, but for extreme horror lovers this is a treat.

David Owain Hughes is a word-slinger of horror and crime fiction, who grew up on trashy b-movies from the age of five which helped rapidly instil in him a vivid imagination. He’s had multiple short stories published in various online magazines and anthologies, along with articles, reviews and interviews. He’s written for This Is Horror, Blood Magazine, and Horror Geeks Magazine.

Hughes is the author of six horror novels, four short story collections and a plethora of novellas. Although he predominately writes within the bracket of horror and its multiple sub-genres, he’s recently branched out into crime fiction and is slowly carving out a superb series of crime/noir thrillers under the umbrella title of South Wales.
