“His ability to weave the surreal with the hyper-real is his greatest talent.” — Signal Horizon.

Lorelai Palumbo is harassed by a sinister group calling themselves The Cabal. They accuse her of having committed unspeakable crimes in the past, and now she must pay. The Cabal begins taking her life apart one piece at a time – her job, her health, the people she loves – and she must try to figure out what The Cabal thinks she’s done if she’s to have any hope of answering their charges and salvaging her life.

“If you like your horror to be dark, deeply themed with a sly smile on the pulse of Barker and Lovecraft whilst making his own unique addition, you can not go wrong with Your Turn To Suffer. An Excellent read.”

– The Literary License Podcast

“Tim’s Your Turn To Suffer is a book I’d recommend to fans of the genre, especially those who truly enjoy tales of the weird and disturbing.”

– FanFiAddict

“What I love about the author’s style is how he gets his characters to step away from their element. You think you know the characters well, but then they get possessed to do all sorts of unspeakable things… “Your Turn to Suffer” is probably my favorite from all of his works, and I hope he continues to write many more!”

– Rajiv Reviews

“While having some grisly splatterpunk elements this novel maybe leans more into weird fiction, and reminds me of classic 80s horror (think Nightmare on Elm Street or Hellraiser.) It was a lot of fun.”

– Only the Darkest Reads

“This story reads like one of those nightmares you wake up from only to learn you're still sleeping and experiencing a nightmare...except that it just continues like a Russian nesting doll of nightmares within nightmares. The narrative paints a distorted and dreamlike allegory, showcasing how guilt, even (or especially) when associated with long-forgotten--or suppressed--memories can weigh heavily on us.”

– Domus Necrophageous

"With new twists on vampirism and the haunted house, horror fans will find this Lovecraftian terror tale of interest."

"Fast-paced, hair-raising, and with a twist ending with enough spin to make you rethink who the real monsters are, The Forever House is the sort of phantasmagorical terror that keeps you reading through gore, grit, and grime until the very end."

“His ability to weave the surreal with the hyper-real is his greatest talent.”

"THE FOREVER HOUSE is a dark, imaginative horror read from Tim Waggoner."

“Tim Waggoner . . . has a knack for taking conventional horror tropes and giving them a deliciously bizarre spin.”

“Bram Stoker Award-winner Tim Waggoner consistently delivers the goods when it comes to hard-hitting horror fiction, with compelling characters and dangerous horrors at every turn.”

“Tim Waggoner manages to meld surreal imagery and events with strong character work and an immersive point of view, resulting in work that shocks you on the surface and unsettles you right down to your bones.”

"Refreshingly different from most of what’s being published in the horror genre these days."

“Waggoner is in possession of a talent that should be taken seriously, and I can’t wait for his next book.”

“He supplies everything that a horror fan could want, and he delivers with style.”

"The Forever House gives the horror fan a good dose of creepy, horrific and bloody action."

"THE FOREVER HOUSE has to be one of the craziest books I've ever read and I mean that in the best way possible!"

"[...] if you like multiple worlds, ancient ones type horror but with more action than your typical Lovecraftian fare, then you will love this."

– Ginger Nuts of Horror

"Waggoner is literally the blueprint for horror writers."
