As someone who is a fan of amateur writing and horror stories I always enjoy looking at Reddit’s Nosleep subreddit page. There are always some amazing gems.
The narrator talks about his horrible teacher and a particular student who he loved to torment more than the rest. One day he asks them to write a horror story and Grant’s story becomes a bit too much to handle. Soon after that, odd things start to happen.
Although not the best story that I’ve come across on this subreddit I still found it enjoyable and a story within a story is always cool.
- She Sold Happiness in Glass Jars
What happens when you come across a poster saying that they sell happiness? Well if you are like the protagonist and are not in the best place, you most likely end up calling the number out of desperation, even if it is a joke.
This one was very highly upvoted so it managed to pique my curiosity quite a bit. And after reading it, I completely understand why. A very interesting and unique premise that was executed perfectly. It can tell a lot about humans and what it means to be happy in such a short story.
- I’m a SWAT Officer who was called to deal with an incident at a middle school. But for some reason, we can’t enter room 203.
The freshest story from the list, not even 24 hours old tells the tale of a swat team which is sent to a school in order to investigate something happening in a school room. However, due to unexplained circumstances, they can not enter it without risking the lives of the people inside and can not even see inside since the windows have been blocked out from the inside.
Probably my second favorite on the list with another very interesting and mysterious premise, this story makes for a great read even though some of the language and phrasing might need work (at least what it seemed like to me).
Edit: There was also a second part of the series and it will probably continue on for more. Although not as good as the first part, still a good addition to the story.
It’s always great to find fellow horror lovers and show their stories and give some love for their hard work.
