PRAISE FOR TIM WAGGONER
“His ability to weave the surreal with the hyper-real is his greatest talent.” – Signal Horizon
“Bram Stoker Award-winner Tim Waggoner consistently delivers the goods when it comes to hard-hitting horror fiction, with compelling characters and dangerous horrors at every turn.” – This is Horror
"Hell is other people," Jean-Paul Sartre tells us. "Especially the one we see in the mirror," implicitly says Tim Waggoner. Both give us the theme of Waggoner's splendid Dark and Distant Voices. Our children we don't quite recognize, colleagues not all that collegial, ghosts who silently speak the Truth ... They're all here and more in Waggoner's brilliant story collection. – Mort Castle author of Strangers
"This is every card in the horror deck, played by someone who knows the game better than most of us ever will." – Stephen Graham Jones author of Mongrels
“Tim may be one of the most consistently excellent writers from project to project in our genre. Never lets a reader down.” – Gene O’Neill author of the Cal Wild Chronicles
“A fast-paced, over-the-top, blood-and-guts thriller . . . for those who like their horror bloody,
their heroes tarnished and their action just this side of unbelievable.”
— Publisher’s Weekly
"Waggoner delivers a tale of cosmic and body horror at its most disturbing. The Men Upstairs is a fascinating study of the ancient tension between repulsion and desire."
— Laird Barron, author of The Beautiful Thing That Awaits Us All
"Refreshingly different from most of what’s being published in the horror genre these days."
— Cemetery Dance Magazine
Tim Waggoner has a new short story collection out called Bone Whispers. Tim has long been one of my favorites among my peers — much like Tom Piccirilli and Bryan Smith — in that when he releases a new book, I stop reading whatever else I’m reading at the time and make room for it instead. His style is very unique — evocative enough to stand quietly with Charles Grant but visceral enough to punch with Richard Laymon. Bone Whispers contains some of his strongest, most surreal work to date.”
— Brian Keene, author of The Rising
“Tim Waggoner manages to meld surreal imagery and events with strong character work and an immersive point of view, resulting in work that shocks you on the surface and unsettles you right down to your bones.”
"A descent into the madness of a ruined psyche, Deep Like the River puts Waggoner's talent for the eerie, desolate, and unpredictable in the spotlight. A must-read for those who like their horror tinged with desperation and guilt."
— Ronald Malfi, author of Little Girls
“Tim Waggoner . . . has a knack for taking conventional horror tropes and giving them a deliciously bizarre spin.”
— Horror Fiction Review
“Eat the Night is a raw and unflinching horror novel. Tim Waggoner takes no prisoners in this novel of monsters, madness and unnatural hunger.”
— Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of Predator One and V-Wars
“Waggoner is in possession of a talent that should be taken seriously, and I can’t wait for his next book.”
— The Horror Channel
“This novel is compelling, frightening, packed with haunting dreamlike imagery, and rich with imagination.”
“He supplies everything that a horror fan could want, and he delivers with style.”
— Gary A. Braunbeck, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of To Each Their Darkness.
