Chronic Fear is the second installment of Scott Nicholson’s chilling Fear series, which began with the harrowing Liquid Fear. The story picks up one year after the notorious Monkey House trials, from which the tiny handful of survivors have scattered in the wind. For while the unwitting human guinea pigs are still alive, the experimental drugs to which they were subjected continue to wreak havoc on their emotional stability. World-renowned neurobiologist Dr. Alexis Morgan knows first-hand the horrors of the sadistic experiment: her husband, Mark, was one of its victims. As a result, he is plagued by unpredictable bouts of rage and paranoia. Dr. Morgan’s research into the drug leads her to suspect presidential candidate and U. S. Senator Daniel Burchfield of plotting to gain control of the drug for his own purposes, a power play that is sure to result in countless casualties unless she and three Monkey House survivors can outwit the shadowy figures behind the conspiracy—if they don’t lose their own sanity first.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

“Like Stephen King, he has an eye and ear for the rhythms of rural America, and like King he knows how to summon serious scares.”Bentley Little, The Disappearance

Anything new from Scott Nicholson I grab instantly. Without exception. Without thinking. It’s a done deal. In fact, I pre-ordered this weeks ago. It showed up in my Kindle in-box this morning, and, for me, Christmas came early. I put all work aside and got started on it right away. Four hours later and I was done. Wow. Nicholson has created a new modern masterpiece of thriller fiction. I’m once again reminded of Dean Koontz, but faster moving. Of Stephen King, but funnier and darker. Chronic Fear start with a bang and never looks back. You will be hooked, too. Enjoy.

The action explodes in this sequel to “Liquid Fear” and no slowing is allowed. We learn a bit more about the main characters, and see how they’ve changed over the year since their second stint in the Monkey House. Kleingarten is replaced with Scagnelli, who is amusing, but not quite as amusing as his predecessor. Fans of dark, psychological suspense should enjoy this latest from Scott Nicholson – available 12/20/11.

About The Author


Author Scott Nicholson has written 12 thrillers, 60 short stories, four comics series, and six screenplays. He’s also a freelance editor and journalist. He lives in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, where he tends an organic garden, successfully eludes stalkers, and generally lives the dream. He’s online at www.hauntedcomputer.com.

Nicholson has written hundreds of songs and poems and was a musician in a former life. a newspaper reporter, he’s won three North Carolina Press Association awards. He’s had the usual collection of odd jobs: dishwasher, carpenter, painter, paranormal investigator, baseball card dealer, and radio announcer. Now he haphazardly trades words for magic beans and uses “haphazardly” as often as possible while decrying the overuse of adverbs.

Entering the digital era with a vengeance, Nicholson is releasing original titles and collections while conspiring to release interactive books in the near future, building audio files, video, and collaborative fiction projects. He operates Haunted Computer Books and Indie Books Blog to bring a variety of voices to readers.

Nicholson won the grand prize in the international Writers of the Future contest in 1999. That same year, he was first runner-up for the Darrell Award. He studied Creative Writing at Appalachian State University and UNC-Chapel Hill. He has been an officer of Mystery Writers of America and Horror Writers Association and is a member of International Thriller Writers and inaugural member of the Killer Thriller Band.

Unfortunately, they never taught him to write: he had 105 rejections before his first story sale and over 400 before he sold a novel. He hasn’t learned much from his mistakes but thinks he’ll probably improve with practice. If nothing else, he’s become a better liar.

His website www.hauntedcomputer.com features author interviews, articles, and fiction excerpts. Bad relationship advice. Humor. Gardening tips. Subliminal tricks to sell his books. That sort of thing.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Scott Nicholson and ENT appreciate it.
