Horror Library, Vol. 8

We Can't Let Go

"We Can’t Let go by Sheldon Higdon – a very eerie troubling tale of a social worker who meets a child and their mother. The encounter is from the off immediately, not feeling right, but then Sheldon adds an even darker dimension. Pure horror." - RunalongThe

"We Can’t Let Go” by Sheldon Higdon is a compelling tale with layers of horror both subtle and not. It’s an intense story where nothing is quite what it seems. I found the ending rather scarring." - Lisa Lee, Amazon Review.

"...grotesquerie occurs in “We Can’t Let Go” by Sheldon Higdon, a gruesome exploration of motherly bonds with a Richard Matheson-esque final twist." -

"In the deeply unsettling “We Can’t Let Go” by Sheldon Higdon, a social worker visits a weird woman and her son with a shocking result."

Tales from the Lake, Vol. 4

Drowning in Sorrow

"…the story is so beautifully written, and so heartfelt, and the character evolution is so seamless. A terribly beautiful and beautifully terrible tale, this is one of my favourites in this volume.” -  Reading Reindeer, Goodreads Review.

“His use of well-rounded characters makes him an authority on how to develop personalities within the fiction world. Beautifully written and a stand-out tale in this precious anthology.” - Lee Francis McCabe, Pop

Writers on Writing, Vol. 4

Are You in the Mood?

“Are You In the Mood? explains mood better than any professor I ever had. He takes Shirley Jackson’s Haunting of Hill House and explains how mood is used. I must re-read it with these new ideas in my head, because, well to me it was “just” a horror story. Now I know better.” - Tere Fredericks, Goodreads Review.

Hand-Carved Coffins

"...a great horror short story.... If Abner were to ever show up in another Sheldon Higdon story I’d buy it. Even if he doesn’t, this is a writer to keep your eye on." - Undead Rat (Horror Books w/ the Undead Rat)

Where the Dead Go to Die

"Sheldon Higdon has written a short story titled "Where the Dead Go to Die," which has been placed on the "HWA Stoker Recommended Reading List." As soon as I started reading it, I realized something. This is not your normal zombie story. It's weird, it's creepy, it's freaking twisted, but it also rocks. Watch out my fellow writer friends, Sheldon knows how to get into our minds and twist our neurons so they spark, sending us into his crazy world with some great story telling. I must warn you, this can be visually disturbing. hehehehe! Two bony thumbs up from the evil little jester and myself."  - Charles Day (Author & Owner of Evil Jester Press)
