Award Winning Author
No. 1 Bestselling
New Release at Amazon
The stories in this book were inspired by real-life events. Some are loose interpretations of my nightmares and experiences, and others are dark memoirs. All were designed to evoke emotion. Longing, fear, remorse, desperation, and of course, anxiety, are a few of the horrors we all face and the ones from which there is often no escape. These stories were written during the most difficult periods in my life. Addiction, incarceration, and depression are the demons of which I speak. Creating this compilation became the tool I used to overcome these demons. This is the product of that struggle. This is Manx-iety.

Wholesome Horror.. With Some Sharp Edges!
Absolute banger of a book! Manx-iety is a short story collection from Daemon Manx that's part memoir - part horror fiction. The 15 stories within encompass a huge range of emotion. Manx evokes every feeling, from dry humour to grief, with huge doses of terror in between! Each story is written with honesty and a refreshing approach to the genre that left me wanting more. Many of the stories would make amazing novellas, or even full length novels. Personal favourites were Witness, The Devils Well and The Widower. I look forward to checking out other works by Daemon Manx and, honestly, if you haven't read this one yet then get it on the TBR pile yesterday! If it's already on your TBR pile then get it into your hand and thank me later
Praise & Reviews for Manx-iety
Impeccably Written, Very Atmospheric - Top Tier
I knew going into this collection it would be top tier. I've loved every piece I've read by this author previously, no reason to think this would be a different experience especially after I read in the description that it was part memoir. I have always loved a book/story that was sown from truth and that proved true with every single story in MANXIETY. Part of the fun each morning was trying to decide what was the truth and what was the fiction from each story. (The author has a section at the end that goes into detail about the stories, but don't cheat and read those ahead of the stories!! It's more fun my way, lol)
The Nerdy Narrative
Compelling Collection Of Horror!
Manxiety is a superb collection of horror stories from the mind of Daemon Manx!
Sixteen stories of horror ranging from subjects of childhood trauma, infidelity, depression, sobriety, spousal abuse, and gothic horror just to name a few.
I normally would highlight my favorite stories from the group, but this time, I can’t because I LOVED THEM ALL! Each story was unique and compelling. The reader gets pulled into the story with the vivid imagery and identifiable characters. This was one of those reads where I sat up at bedtime telling myself, one more chapter. Then it turned into another, then another because it was so hard to put down.
I really enjoyed the final pages of the book where Manx talked about his inspiration for each of the stories based on different points in his life. Manx is quickly becoming one of those authors that buying his books is a no-brainer because his writing is that good.
So, if you haven’t thought about picking this one up yet, please do! It’s totally worth the time and a great horror read without the extreme elements.
