Wesley Thomas ‘Terror Train’ Review


Terror Train FINAL COVER with Cindy quote VERSION 2-page-0

Written by: Paula Limbaugh

Wesley Thomas asked if I could read his book and give him my opinion of it and if perhaps I liked it, would I write a book blurb.  I did, on both counts!

“Nothing is as it seems, the subtle horror found here slowly gains momentum and hits you with a one-two punch in the gut! Wesley Thomas has come up with a real winner!”

So, I should also say that Wesley is a fellow contributor here at HRN.  I was a bit hesitant to at first read his book because I didn’t want to be put on the spot if I didn’t like it.  Luckily, I was rather impressed!  Terror Train is a collection of six short stories, all with an edge you don’t expect.

The first story, The Miracle of Death is about a brother and sister trying to survive the apocalypse.  Enduring a series of misfortunes they are finally rescued, only to find there is no such thing as a happy ending.

Child’s Play is anything but….find out what happens when three boys decide to see just what is secreted away in old farmer McCall’s barn.

In An Odyssey of Terror we meet a young girl waking from one nightmare, only to find herself in another.

Kane is an abusive alcoholic husband and father.  When his family finally summons the courage to leave, they find out that you can Never Turn Around.

A Valentine’s Horror, aah the lengths one will go to, to find true love.

I Do What I Do is the story of a pathetic man who finds pleasure in others’ horror, but remember what you do may come back to haunt you.

Hopefully this is just the tip of the iceberg, as I would like to see more from the demented mind of Wesley Thomas.  All in all, an enjoyable read.

Order it here.

  1. Child’s Play sounds intriguing. It has a “Big Surprise” kind of a ring to it, which was a short story by Richard Matheson.

    Several of these stories have a interesting draw here…Never Turn Around, Child’s Play and I Do What I Do …stand out for me….although the others sound good as well. A job well done and yes it does take a certain something extra to review a fellow contributors work here.I applaud you for doing just that here…..just me…Vitina Molgaard
