Check out the new man on the block with The Pen Of The Damned! Craig McGray writes some great stories! I killed him in a story of mine the other week, but we're still friends.

Amazon bio:
I live on the east coast of Florida with my wife and two beautiful daughters.
My stories range from dark horror to paranormal. I'm currently co-authoring a horror novel as well as writing another horror novella, more details to come soon.
In addition to spending time with my family, I enjoy triathlon and endurance training. Many of my thoughts and story ideas come to me during those quiet times while running, biking, or swimming.

Read the stuff on his great website!

The review for Treed is written by K. R. Rowe, a woman who knows her horror!

Editorial Reviews


"In Treed, Craig McGray has written a disturbingly vivid tale of vicious desires gone wrong.With a deft hand McGray turns this story on its side and away from the direction anticipated with truly bloody results." ~ Joe Hart author of The River is Dark.

"A terrifyingly twisted masterpiece - McGray pens yet another horror classic that will make you wonder why you ever thought turning the lights out at night was a good idea..." ~ Nick Stephenson author of The Leopold Blake Series

"This is a great short horror story that will only whet your appetite for more fiction from Craig McGray." ~ Amazon Reviewer

5.0 out of 5 stars Packed with Gore April 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
McGray hacked open the pages of this short story, shoved in a load of gore and depravity, and sewed it up tight with the threads of freakin' awesome.

Treed is a mini story with maximum punch. When a deal between two psychopaths goes sour, the deadly duo find themselves stuck in a twisted alliance and haunted by the same gruesome specter. While in the forest attempting to cover up their latest despicable deed, the two men find that this time, they are not the ones creating the nightmares, but in fact they are forced to face the demons of their own.

This story took me about an hour to read. It is well written, well thought out, and very descriptive. It was gross, disturbing, and a little stomach turning-as it should be. The dialogue was very nicely done and refreshingly foul, the story original, and I enjoyed the slight touch of humor here and there.

One line I particularly enjoyed was, "... moving her was like moving a plank of wood-a bloody, sticky plank." I have to admit, that gave me bit of a chuckle.

I'm looking forward to reading more of McGray's work. I have no trouble recommending this one.
