The Smile and Other Stories by Cyn Nightly*

This collection contains a diverse mix of horror genres with familiar backdrops: a cabin in the woods, an isolated hike, a car on a lover’s lane. However, these stories are not your typical slashers, they are horrors of the mind. While there is no shortage of gore, the true terrors in this collection are the demons we all may face at some point in our lives: betrayal, grief, the loss of a loved one, sexual assault, revenge.

Most of the stories center around a woman’s POV and tackle familiar issues through the lens of the macabre. These thrilling stories will keep you thinking—and perhaps have you double-checking the locks on your doors—long after you’ve read them.


What Came With The Storm: After the unexpected passing of her father, Carlie and her fiancée, Arielle, plan to spend some alone time in his cabin. On the first night, an unexpected guest appears.

The Smile: What happens when two evil men cross paths and you are stuck in the crossfire?

Where They Go: A woman tries to find her way back home after a cursed hike.

The Wingman: Rav, a self-proclaimed pickup artist has to cut some corners to maintain his reputation. One night, the tables are turned and it’s Rav who finds himself to be the object of someone else’s desire.

The Moonlit Bridge: A devastated woman gets the rare chance to bring her lover´back to life. She thinks the price she paid upfront will cover the cost, but she soon learns that there is a much larger balance due.
