    Now That I’ve Lost You by Paul EdwardsPublished by Screaming Dreams“A man seeks a cure for his loneliness in the squalid back streets of Goa. A couple find solace in each other as the world comes apart at the seams. Sinister creatures besiege a small American town buried in fog. And as the dead rise from rent, yawning graves, a girl is holed up in a farmhouse with one of their own…In these nineteen tales of love and loss, sex and death, you will brave witches, warlocks and the living dead; traverse uncharted, hypnotic highways; and you will meet up with green-eyed losers who inhabit small spaces: whether it’s graveyards, old churches, or their own echoing heads.”I read Paul Edwards’ previous collection of assorted tales, ‘Black Mirrors’ last year and thoroughly enjoyed it, each tale was different as the last. Edwards heads in a different direction with ‘Now That I’ve Lost You’ as the theme of relationships is the thread that holds the collection together. Jealousy, envy, anger, loss, obsession and death all play a part in a study of emotions in which we’re all touched by at some point during our fragile little lives.Standout stories for me are ‘Dead City Blues’ in which the possibility of the zombie apocalypse isn’t all what it seems, or is it. The double twisted ending to this really sticks it in and snaps it off.‘Mine’ gives us the (ever) trouble writer plagued by monsters in the fog which may or may not be part of his imagination, or worse.In ‘A Place the Night Can’t Touch,’ we’re introduced to the diaries of Louise Naughton, a survivor with a unsettling, yet unrealised secret. Edwards leaves us wondering beyond the end whether Louise is innocently dumb or chillingly calculating.‘Anja’ warns the men of the world that meeting a beautiful woman isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be, especially if she’s met you before.Melancholic without being depressing, the reoccurring themes of the collection offer short bursts of brilliance without being too repetitive. Edwards’ prose is moody and thoughtful, reminding us all of those changing autumnal to winter days were we all end up feeling the most alone.4/5

    This book is a fantastic read. It’s a collection of short horror stories and it has everything. This is the description I read before buying the book;“A man seeks a cure for his loneliness in the squalid back streets of Goa. A couple find solace in each other as the world comes apart at the seams. Sinister creatures besiege a small American town buried in fog. And as the dead rise from rent, yawning graves, a girl is holed up in a farmhouse with one of their own…“In these nineteen tales of love and loss, sex and death, you will brave witches, warlocks and the living dead; traverse uncharted, hypnotic highways; and you will meet up with green-eyed losers who inhabit small spaces: whether it’s graveyards, old churches, or their own echoing heads.”It’s a great read for bedtime or on the bus, the author is descriptive to the point you can visualize the characters and surroundings but not so much that you get bored. The stories are entertaining and I’d definitely recommend them.I’m actually not going to go into detail about the stories because I want you to read them without spoilers. I have thought hard about it though and I can tell you my two favorites;Dead City BluesPainting Blind CirclesPaul Edwards is a very talented author and I look forward to reading more of his work.If you’d like to buy the book for yourself you can find it on amazon on both kindle and paperback.

    I bought a Kindle edition of this book because I liked the sound of it. When I finally found some time to sit down and read a few days later, I was absorbed instantly into the world of Paul Edwards' imagery. For the next couple of days everything else stalled as if by push of the 'pause' button. I would reside in deserted graveyards, walk around in gloomy streets lighted only by silver moonlight while trying to avoid creatures with very dark eyes. The pictures skillfully painted with words, association of colours, imaginative characters all brought stories to life. After every story I would proclaim that it was definitely my favourite, only to change my mind after the following one.Eleonora made me shiver, causing me to feel definitely uneasy while Cure left me intrigued. However in the end it was the first story, with the same title as the book, that has enthralled me. If you, like me, love stories with a twist while being pleasantly scared, read this book!
