Publisher Description

In Lisa Tuttle’s stories, the everyday domestic world of her female protagonists is invaded by the bizarre, the uncanny, the horrific. In ‘Bug House’, a woman who goes to visit her aunt is shocked to find she is dying – but even more shocking is what is killing her. The divorcing couple in ‘Community Property’ arrive at a macabre solution for how to divide ownership of a beloved pet. In ‘Flying to Byzantium’, a writer travelling to a science fiction convention finds herself caught in a strange and terrifying hell. The thirteen tales in this collection are highly original and extremely chilling, and they reveal Tuttle to be a master of contemporary horror fiction.


Never before published in the United States and highly sought-after by collectors, A Nest of Nightmares (1986) is a classic of modern horror. This new edition features the original paperback cover art by Nick Bantock and a new introduction by Will Errickson.

Some scary stories!

Creepy, short stories! Definitely worth checking out!

Major Trigger Warning.

This book has two rape scenes. One is quite brief and not detailed, but the other serves as the focal point of the first story’s denouement. I wish I had known that before reading this, so I’m warning you before you look past the free sample.

That being said, all the stories are very chilling and comprise an excellent collection of horror. They touch on meaningful subjects including (but not limited to) the fear of failure, self-hatred, familial responsibility, grief, and the stress of motherhood. The supernatural and paranormal mysteries dovetail flawlessly with relatable themes, making the conclusion of each tale all the more emotionally impactful. Yes, this book is 100% worth the price. Just please be aware that some scenes may be distressing for anyone who has experienced sexual assault.
