Dark Matter

Spooklights, September 2014

"Toni Nicolino’s Dark Matter is a particular standout. The lead character struggles to digest the death of her monstrous, meth-addicted mother. Suffocating and raw, Nicolino shrewdly pulls the reader down into the spiraling chaos of a damaged psyche desperate to untangle and sort out a lifetime of hurt."

Gut Check

Pseudopod, August 2014

"This story is about more than a horrific slice of human depravity, it’s about life. It is strength in the face of adversity; it is steeling yourself and facing the future head on because the future doesn’t care about you or your plans. It writes a new ending to a familiar tale, a brighter future, it empowers us to write our own."

THE DEAD WAIT

High Strange Horror, April 2014

"I was really creeped out by The Dead Wait by Toni Nicolino. Rich Wall Street guy is dying of terminal cancer and he starts hearing and seeing strange stuff. But is it real? Supernatural? Read the book!"

THE COMING

Morpheus Tales, July 2011

"This story begins with an interesting central character and explores her vulnerabilities while revealing an equally-interesting story behind them. The prose maintains a suspenseful sense of unrest throughout, and builds into an intense, adrenaline-charged climax. I found the story both dark and intelligently-written. A very nice piece of work suiting of this issue's theme."
