Goodreads URL Discuss and Review Night Terrors
Praise and Reviews for Tim Waggoner and the Nekropolis saga:

“Both horror and mystery readers will be delighted by this horror-noir adventure.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Fans of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, fans of noir detective stories and fans of the just plain weird, rejoice! … Nekropolis is something to pick up if you are in the mood for something different and fun. The weirdness does not leave you alienated (sic) and the worldbuilding is of a very high quality.”
SF Revu

Nekropolis is an engaging read that had plenty to recommend it to me. I like detective tales and Nekropolis has all the elements this and uses them effectively. There’s a mystery to be solved and every question is answered with another question, just the thing to keep me reading (which it did).”
– Graeme’s Fantasy Book Reviews

“The villains in the book are creepy, alien, and often very scary, but some of Matt’s friends are even scarier… [it has] good description style and a well thought out plot.”
– SF Site

“Tim brings to the genre a mystery with some great twists, a wickedly twisted sense of humour and … a cracking world for the character to tread the beat. Great stuff.”
– Falcata Times

“Anyone who wants to see a slightly different version of urban fantasy will find this highly readable. For them as likes this type of book, Night Terrors is a very good buy.”
– Thinking About Books

“I found myself rooting for a freaking clown. And I want to go back”.
