“This is how horror stories should be. Some have psychological elements, and some are more straightforward. Each story is unique from anything else I've ever read and some are, frankly, quite disturbing.”
"Ashley writes with sting. In what appears to [be] his literary debut he presents us with a collection of stories that are far more terrifying then the colleagues in the genre."
“... When they strike correctly they sent shivers down my spine, especially in the case of Hush and Putting Down Your Love, the former I just did not expect and so blew my mind a bit, he was able to bring tears of shock to my eyes in just nine innocent words...”
"It's great to see new, talented authors venturing into the publishing world, who are willing to push the limits and try something different. If you enjoy short horror stories, then The Laws of Nature would be perfect for you."
“If you're a hardcore horror fan or someone just tentatively dipping their toe in to test the waters, The Laws of Nature is definitely for you. There is something here to thrill or chill absolutely everyone, and that very human accessibility of the writing and the themes is one of the book's greatest strengths.”
This collection of short stories is sure to provide you with equal parts terror, anxiety, nostalgia, and depravity as you explore a universe that is both horrific and, at points, familiar. These stories pull on your heartstrings and draw you into a world that will force you to acknowledge your fears, allow you to cuddle with them, and ultimately leave you feeling more human afterwards.
The first story of The Laws of Nature was narrated and featured on The Nosleep Podcast and has been posted to YouTube by the excellent team at Chilling Tales for Dark Nights. Beware. This story may disturb you.

My name is Ashley. I write because I want to understand the human experience. What makes us tick, and why we do the things we do.
I write stories about tragedy, anxiety and horror, poetry about loss and longing, and I take photos of the wonderful things that inspire me. If I create a single honest piece of art in my life, I will consider myself a success. Sometimes I just want to make jokes about cans of spam, though. So there's also that.
* Yes, I'm the guy in the photos.
