There is a cinematic quality to his storytelling, which lodges itself in your imagination, deepening the bold and disturbing tales he delivers. Approach Vaudeville and Other Nightmares with care and whatever you do, leave the lights on!”

Rocky Wood, Bram Stoker Award (R) winning author of Stephen King: A Literary Companion

“While Chapman may not be as grotesque or baroquely blood-spattered as Clive Barker, his stories, like those of Barker, are overflowing with ideas and imagination, and the power and originality of them are often striking and many of the stories will surely haunt you long after you’ve closed the book.

You’re about to embark on a dark and wondrous journey through the mind of a very talented young writer. Be prepared to visit strange worlds and even stranger beings. Horror and violence abounds, but there’s also time for reflection, to ponder some of life’s most important questions.
You won’t always know where you’re going or where you are, but rest assured, you’re in good hands.
Sure, they may be a bit bloody, the fingers raw nubs that resemble mangled sausage, but that’s just because your driver is deeply passionate about his job and wants to give you the best experience possible.
So sit back and enjoy the ride. It’s one hell of a trip.” – from the introduction by Brett McBean, author of the Concrete Jungle trilogy
