You have so many good stories on your list, I'm excited to read the ones I haven't heard of! May I also recommend a few stories? /r/nosleep was my first subreddit and I spent a long time here before making a reddit account. These are just a few off the top of my head. Not sure if this is appropriate for this post (maybe you're trying to bring attention to posts which others may not have read, some in my list were/are very popular) but these stories are just amazing imo. I don't remember enough details from each to do a good job summarizing them (it's been years for the first two), but all these stories left lasting impressions on me and I would definitely read each one again.

Hi everyone,

I’m J. Speziale. I have only been writing for a few months, but I have really enjoyed all of the positive feedback from the /r/nosleep community. I’m still in shock from my 2017 series award. I have a dream of one day transitioning to writing screenplays. Feel free to say hi!

I just launched a webpage, and learning how to build it.


I also got to be a part of this anthology

Thanks for sharing your grandfather's story. Those tunnel rats were hard-core and I have tremendous respect for their service. If you're interested in more stories about exploring tunnels in Vietnam, check out this book, it's one of my favorite on the topic.

u/LeoDuhVinci · 52 pointsr/nosleep

Thanks so much everyone! Right now there is a free copy of The Lucienne Twins on Kindle. If you liked it, it would be amazing if you left a rating either there or on goodreads.

There are excellent books out there that explain this phenomena. Unfortunately, I have no titles to give you, but I've definitely read a few. I think that Sagan's Demon Haunted World is one of them.

IIRC from when I read them, the scientists point out that, before aliens, people often reported seeing religious figures/demons/angels. In other cultures, they report seeing the 'commonly viewed' figures of those cultures, from religious figures, to elves, to fairies, etc. At the turn of the century and before, many respectable adults reported seeing fairies, which was why that faked fairy photograph was so widely believed.

Our brains aren't perfect machines which accurately record the world and notice every detail. We actually interpret everything we see, adding things in and ignoring things deemed inconsequential. Since we, as a culture, share similar ideas, it makes sense that we would interpret odd shapes and things have glimpsed through the cultural lenses of what we would expect to be there when something is there that's not supposed to be. Before 'little green men' were aliens, they were goblins and other creatures. From wikipedia These examples illustrate that use of little green men was already deeply engrained in English vernacular long before the flying saucer era, used for a variety of supernatural, imaginary, or mythical beings.

Also, as an Evolutionary Anthropologist, I find it very telling about the human psyche that the physiology of these supposed advanced aliens is so strikingly similar to our own, with the changes in shapes like an overdeveloped human. The first time I saw a Homo sapiens skeleton placed next to a Neanderthal skeleton, I was struck by how we must have looked like aliens to them. It's very interesting that our 'enemy' is a more advanced version of ourselves.

You have quite the appropriate username. I must warn you that if you're looking for "scary", you might be disappointed. However, because you asked, these are the titles that I can wholeheartedly recommend:

Bartleby the Scrivener by Herman Melville

Naked Lunch by William S Burroughs

Sanatorium under the sign of the Hourglass by Bruno Schulz

Oyasumi Punpun by Inio Asano (translation: "Goodnight Punpun." This one is actually a manga series. If you've never read manga before, check this one out. You won't be disappointed.)

Wieland by Charles Brockden Brown

Notes from Underground by Fyodor Dostoevsky (I have a bit of a personal attachment to this one for reasons that may seem obvious)

Memoirs of my Nervous Illness by Daniel Paul Schreber (This one was recommended by one of my readers, and I'm very glad I added it to the rotation)

Dog Soldiers by Robert Stone

We are Legion by Dennis E. Taylor (a bit of science fiction fantasy that really makes you question the concept of identity)

The Masks of Time by Robert Silverberg

Tales of 1,001 Nights, author(s) unknown

A few other authors and stories I would recommend:
Philip K. Dick;
The Long Goodbye by Raymond Chandler;
Patricia Highsmith;
James Lee Burke;
Jorge Luis Borges;
William Gibson;
Dashiell Hammett;
Haruki Murakami;
Charles Baudelaire;
Ambros Bierce;
Nikolai Gogol;
Alberty Camus;
Nathaniel Hawthorne;
M R James;
H G Wells;
J G Ballard;
Thomas Ligotti;

That's about all I can think of right now, but I think it's a pretty good place to start.

u/jp_carver · 6 pointsr/nosleep

Hello, I'm J.P. Carver you probably don't know my name and if you search for it on Amazon you get HP Chargers instead... but I've written stories such as 'I fell in love with my best friend', and 'We don't do Halloween'.

I've got a novel out [here] ( - quick and dirty description: Supernatural meets Silent Hill. I also write cyberpunk and my novella is [here] ( No quick and dirty, just lots of cool tech.

I also appeared in this anthology with lots of other cooler nosleep authors, so I got that going for me.

I'm TheJesseClark! You may know me by my pen names, Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, and u/Hayong. None of that is true. But this is: Subscribe to both my Facebook and my subreddit, or I'll find you.

Also, I'm featured in a book that has tons of other authors you might recognize, who are almost as great as me

I’m on my phone, so no proper formatting just yet. Will edit tonight with real links when I’m on my PC. Enjoy the purge!

u/mushpuppy · 2 pointsr/nosleep

Interesting because I've been thinking lately about why there aren't more ghost novels. I think of books like Ghosts, Hell House, even The Shining, why they work so well, and why they're so rare. They must be extraordinarily hard to write.

u/bamfsEnnui · 1 pointr/nosleep

Check out the whole series of stories by /u/1000Vultures starting here. It makes a lot more sense if you have read them all. He did go on and publish as well. You can purchase Penpals here and there has been talk of it being turned into a movie. :)

u/iamababycow · 14 pointsr/nosleep

It's under The Lucienne Twins in the Kindle store. I just ordered it, I don't know if this link will work but here ya go :)

u/jivanyatra · 1 pointr/nosleep

House of Leaves.

There's a curse, which I can attest to: once you start the book, crazy things will happen in your life until you finish it. They start small, but your life will be hell until you finish.

It's a brilliantly engineered book, though, and definitely worthwhile if you can knock it out in a few days.

u/AnnaMarieRogue · 1 pointr/nosleep

You should check out this book, maybe some spells from it will help. Also there are other books on the same page that have cat spells in them.

u/forestpixie · 1 pointr/nosleep

Wow, maybe this car was made in the same plant as Christine... you should definitely cut your losses and have it scrapped, as /u/jefferey1313 suggests.

u/idreaminwords · 3 pointsr/nosleep

You can pre-order it Here Looks like it's available 10/31

u/Kerrima · 1 pointr/nosleep

You can get it for Kindle on Amazon.

It's worth reading the whole eBook, since I think the author added more details throughout since publishing it.

u/Aximili93 · 4 pointsr/nosleep

Its available on Amazon, Paperback and ebook

u/NappingPlant · 1 pointr/nosleep

I look up a lot of random bullshit on a whim, I got interested in this after an old episode of Ripley's Believe it or Not. There was this book I read called Stiff: the Curious Lives of Human Cadavers I read a long time ago, I remember a lot from that.

Just look it up the author was a Mary Roach. Here is a link to her book's Amazon and a PDF if you don't have the cash to buy it.

u/PocketOxford · 17 pointsr/nosleep

u/BlairDaniels · 34 pointsr/nosleep

I'm Blair Daniels! I like writing creepy stuff. Uhhh and weird fact about me: I have kept pet chickens for the past 13 years. (BEFORE IT WAS COOL.)

I have a Facebook page and have a story in the anthology Love, Death, and Other Inconveniences. And you can buy me a coffee here :)

u/mustangwolf1997 · 1 pointr/nosleep

A link? No. A source? Yes. He wrote a book, simply titled "The Story of Her Holding an Orange." He had a sale and it was free for a while on Kindle, so I read it. It's now $3.04 on Kindle and $6.50 on Amazon, but $3.32 for a new paperback and $3.24 for a used one. I have no fucking clue how this works... See for yourself

u/MFCORNETTO · 8 pointsr/nosleep

The book is called Penpal. The series starts here and has no title, but you should read the entire thing, then start over and read it all again as soon as possible.

u/MafiaWinter · 43 pointsr/nosleep

/u/inaaace posted to nosleep about his encounters with a woman called Rose, who continually offered him an orange. There was a well-dressed older male who was also associated with the orange offerings.
The first post can be found here.

Edit: Another user, /u/NosleepHelpThrowaway, posted more recently about oranges. Jury is still out on whether or not the events are related. /u/inaaace seemed skeptical, as Rose was tied to his family. NosleepHelpThrowaway's first post is here.

Second Edit: /u/inaaace also published his posts in the form of a book, which can be found on Amazon.

It's midnight where I am now and I am exhausted. My husband gets up early in the morning to go to work and I have to be up to take my kid to school. I'm not a full vampire yet, so I still have a very human schedule I have to keep.

u/catface0 · 71 pointsr/nosleep

If you really wanna hear about the horrors of tunnel warfare from both sides of the fence you might read this.

But you won't find anything in there about the horrors Benoit and I saw.

u/ExplodingToasterOven · -1 pointsr/nosleep

Sort of. :D

Innana, Ishtar, or Lilith, fine woman all the same. ;)

She's not quite yet forgotten by history. Transformed, twisted and turned, but always around in one form or another. One eras angel, anothers demon, and so it goes.

But the ones who strike down the malignant of those with the will to power.. Just shadows in the darkness. Eaters of tainted souls. Sometimes they get mixed up with various demon/devil myths.

The Erinyes live in Erebus and are more ancient deities than any of the Olympians. Their task is to hear complaints brought by mortals against the insolence of the young to the aged, of children to parents, of hosts to guests, and of householders or city councils to suppliants - and to punish such crimes by hounding culprits relentlessly. The Erinyes are crones and, depending upon authors, described as having snakes for hair, dog's heads, coal black bodies, bat's wings, and blood-shot eyes. In their hands they carry brass-studded scourges, and their victims die in torment

Colorful certainly, not always 100% accurate, but good campfire stories rarely are.

Take the ending of one particularly rotten pair of apples.

He says he promised the leader each day that he and his wife would be moved to Bucharest for a proper trial.

But his superiors had other plans. They hastily arranged a military trial at the base that was video-recorded.

The museum director says the day before, a Romanian official came from Bucharest and told his colleagues: "We'll do them here." Carstina says it proves the decision to execute the Ceausescus was made beforehand.

Kemenici was also bothered by the lack of any evidence during the trial. "The only thing on the table were the glasses of the chief judge," he says.

He adds that Ceausescu didn't believe he was getting due process either, calling it a conspiracy by Kemenici's superiors and other opponents. To this day, some Romanians still think the entire revolution was a planned coup d'etat, especially since many members of the communist regime became part of the new government.

"He didn't believe they were doing this on their own," Kemenici says. "He told me that the Americans and Russians got together to do this."

The trial, which began on Christmas Day, lasted less than an hour, Carstina says, adding that the chief military judge, Gica Popa, delivered the verdict after only minutes of deliberation.

He declared both Ceausescus guilty of genocide and sentenced them to death.

Video footage shows it wasn't until paratroopers assigned to carry out the execution arrived that the couple finally grasped what was about to happen.

Nicolae Ceausescu shouted: "I have the right to do what I want!"

His wife, Elena, struggled and cursed at the soldiers. She shouted: "Don't tie us up!" and "Don't offend us!"

They were hauled outside, lined up against a wall and shot dead by one of the paratroopers. Carstina says it happened before the camera could be turned on.

Perhaps a bit rushed, but sometimes its best to hit the delete key rather than risk tainting things even further. Such is life. ;)

Awesome! I thought I knew most of Ogden Nash's more famous poems but I've never heard of this one. Since Nash wrote in the 1930's I wasn't familiar with all of the names and thought others might appreciate reference links. We like to think that sensationalistic murder cases are something of a recent phenomenon. This proves otherwise. Basically, this reads as a "who's who" of US murderers during the first parts of the twentieth century.


Crinoline on wikipedia.

Walpurgis Night on wikipedia


Dr. Waite (see THE WAITE CASE further down the page). Convicted of double homicide and executed. Married the daughter of a wealthy couple then set up an expensive practice in a very posh section of New York. Mother-in-law dies and is transferred back to Michigan for burial. Father-in-law asked to stay until he overcomes his bereavement. He dies suddenly as well. Suspicion is aroused and both bodies exhumed. Both were found to contain large does of arsenic.

Ruth and Judd may reference the murder trial of Winnie Ruth Judd who killed, then dismembered a former roommate in an apparent love triangle.

Nan, the floradorra girl and Cesar Young She was acquitted of charges of shooting to death her married lover while riding in a handsome cab in broad daylight in New York in 1905.

Mad Dog Coll earned the name after a failed kidnapping of an opposing mob boss's underling caused him to kill several children.

Becker and Rosenthal Corrupt cop who paid to have illegal casino owner hit after he went to the press discussing how Becker's extortion payments were hurting his business.

Legs and Dutch are Legs Diamond and Dutch Schultz, also mob related people.

The "Double Damned" are those with unsolved murder cases:

Dorothy "Dot" King murder - found cholorformed to death in her apartment.

Elwell Murder Case - textbook "locked room" murder mystery.

Arnold Rothstein's murder. He was widely considered the organizer behind the 1919 "Black Sox" scandal; paying off players to throw the World Series so he and his crew could win on fixed bets. He was conscious for days after he was shot but refused to give up the name of his assailant to the police.

Starr Faithful's murder scandal and her relationship to Andrew Peters.

Edit: Added all names.

Edit edit: Nash doesn't name any names but I'm inclined to believe this is the hotel referenced in the poem.
