Such Pretty Confusion: Nightmares from a Damaged Mind



Nightmares from a Damaged Mind

What does a damaged mind dream about?

Does it imagine everyday horrors we’re all familiar with, with morbid notions of pain and suffering and loss? Or does it dig a little deeper into those psychological spaces where we hide our darkest secrets and existential dreads? Or is it a darkened void, waiting to trap unsuspecting readers and steal their souls, leaving their minds twisted with SUCH PRETTY CONFUSION?

This collection of dark fiction spans over two decades of nightmares from Maine author Peter N. Dudar. The stories selected are his personal favorites, including several new, unpublished pieces with razor-sharp edges. So please consider yourself invited to come play for awhile inside his damaged mind and discover what nightmares await you.

“As you enter the world of Peter N. Dudar, you’re in for a treat.” —from the introduction by L. L. Soares
