It’s finally time for my The Nocturnal Reader’s Box unboxing of the month of February! Once again, the box was filled to the brim by original and awesome horror goodies!
Jessica and Vincent are the founders of the Nocturnal Book Box. We are a Veteran owned company that simply loves everything dark! We decided to create this opportunity for our customers for the same reason that many other small businesses are started every year, we wished that something like this existed. Because the book boxes that are out there currently are ones that involve only Young Adult, we decided that everyone should be able to get a book box that has a bit of mature content and items that are not coated in glitter. That’s when we began sourcing ideas and publishers. We pitched the idea to many of our friends and family and the response was overwhelmingly positive. We could not believe that no one had thought of doing this yet. We have been working tirelessly to curate the perfect items for our boxes, and made sure that every item that is put into the box is usable. Thank you for your support and we hope to build a great community around The Nocturnal Reader’s Box.
This month’s box included:
(Click the photo’s for more details!)
- The pin of the month created by Jeff at Exhumed Visions. It is inspired by Dan Simmons’ Summer of Night
- A cool shirt featuring The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson
- An artprint inspired by Nick Cutter’s The Deep. It’s one of the most creepy artworks I have seen. Ever.
- A bandana featuring Mongrels by Stephen Graham Jones
- A big glass inspired by The Ruins by Scott Smith
- A super creepy bookmark!
Although I haven’t read any of the books that the goodies are inspired by, I’m impressed. They’re all of high quality and look so good! And yes, they definitely make me want to read them all!!
Let’s not forget about the two books!
This month included another book by Valancourt and a hardcover (which looks soso gross and awesome!) Both the books sound absolutely haunting and creepy! I think I’ll definitely need to sleep with the lights on when reading these.

28-year-old image processing specialist Takanori Ando being handed a USB memory stick by the president of the CG production company where he works. Tasked with analyzing its contents, Ando gasps at the graphic images he sees, and quickly concludes that they cannot have been faked or generated by CG software. Assuming the man in the video did indeed kill himself, what could his purpose have been in leaving this footage behind?
Ando saves the file to his PC. When he plays it again the next day, the man’s body has shifted to a lower position, and in subsequent viewings, the video undergoes further changes.
Cast a Cold Eye by Alan Ryan
Jack Quinlan, an American writer, travels to a small village in the remote western part of Ireland to research a book on the Irish Famine. The quiet, picturesque village seems just the place to spend a few months writing, but beneath its placid exterior lurk dark secrets. Why do the locals behave so strangely? What is Father Henning, the enigmatic parish priest, hiding? And what is the meaning of the strange ritual Jack observes in the cemetery? The search for answers will lead him to the terrifying discovery that the ghosts of the past linger on in the present, and they cry out for blood …
An atmospheric, haunting ghost story, Cast a Cold Eye (1984) is a slow burn horror novel that will keep readers in suspense until its chilling conclusion.
