“Come for the horror, stay for the heartbreaking emotion that bleeds into every page. Roberts really shows his range here, and it’s obvious early on in these stories that they will stick with you long after reading them. It Haunts The Mind is that damn good.”—John Durgin, author of The Cursed Among Us and Inside The Devil’s Nest.
“A fantastically spooky collection from one of Indie horror’s premier storytellers! West Virginia writers know how to pen a creepy tale.”—Bridgett Nelson, the Splatterpunk Award-nominated author of A Bouquet of Viscera
“Nick Roberts has an uncanny ability to scare the bejesus out of readers. With It Haunts the Mind & Other Stories, he does it time and time again. Highly recommended if you don’t want to sleep in the dark again.”—James Aquilone, Bram Stoker Award nominated editor and writer of Classic Monsters Unleashed, Shakespeare Unleashed, and Kolchak: The Night Stalker – 50th Anniversary
“Whether it’s the daily newspaper, drugs, or alcohol, a thread of vices weaves through It Haunts the Mind and Other Stories. Nick Roberts deftly maneuvers between real life horror and fictional horror, creating a dark tapestry that will leave you haunted with emotion. There are monsters, clandestine organizations, and ghosts under the bed, but Nick proves sometimes the darkest terror is the one we carry with us.”—Gage Greenwood, best-selling author of Winter’s Myths and Bunker Dogs
“The fifteen stories in It Haunts the Mind aim squarely for either the jugular or the heart, and they do not miss. Nick Roberts’ skills as a writer are on full display here, and whether his monsters are supernatural or born of simple human frailty, these are tales that truly haunt, guaranteed to leave the reader either terrified or heartbroken. Or sometimes both.”—Sammy Scott, author of At Home With the Horrors
