The fading memories Jacob has of his deceased mother are buried on a few VHS home movies. Recently haunted by recurring dreams of her, he sets out to pick up a used VCR, and finds one at a local yard sale. However this is no ordinary VCR. According to the owner, this particular model not only plays movies, but it allows one to communicate with the dead. Fueled by curiosity, Jacob takes it home and soon discovers that what he possesses opens a doorway to darkness, death, and lust.
Miller is frustrated. Hours at the gym and nothing to show for it. But once a coworker introduces him to RECRüT, a sports energy drink that guarantees results, the gains come quick. It isn't long before Miller attains the godlike physique he's always wanted. Unfortunately, these 12 little ounces come with a side effect - a high price he never expected to pay. And the more RECRüT he drinks, the more his world begins to unravel, uncovering a sinister side of himself he never knew existed.
The Saltwater Marathon
Bryan buries himself at work, opting for late night shifts at the mall, often drinking himself to sleep in the back office of his once beloved job. But everything changes the morning they show up...strangers at his office door...screaming, pleading and begging him to open the door because they're being pursued and desperately need somewhere to hide. As he awakens from his drunken stupor, he begins to wonder if this some sick joke? Bryan wouldn't be sure until he let these strangers in. However once he does, he soon witnesses for himself what has these people so afraid, so panicked, that he finds it impossible to stay caught in his own spiral of self-loathing.

Two Great Stories and one Not so Much
I liked VIDEO IS DEAD and loved ENERGY DRINK. I was not a fan of THE SALTWATER MARATHON. To like two thirds of an anthology is a pretty good average. Chateau has one other book at audible and I have put that on my wish list. VIDEO IS DEAD has lots of sex in it and goes places you will not expect. Energy Drink is a sort of throw back to the pulp age of Science Fiction, if they had had energy drinks back then. Once again these appeal to my sophomore side, which I like to indulge from time to time. Mindless entertainment.

Excellent and unique paranormal tales
If you could sum up Nightmares in Analog in three words, what would they be?
VCR, Blood-bull, Dawn-of-the-mermaids
Who was your favorite character and why?
Pedro. While his story wasn't my favorite I really enjoyed his character and the accent Aaron had for him was great.
Which scene was your favorite?
Won't give anything away but the ending of The Saltwater Marathon. It wasn't what the average person would expect or do in the same situation.
If you could take any character from Nightmares in Analog out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Serena, Bryan's dead wife. Again don't want to too much anything away but I'm pretty sure ever since the movie Splash most men would like to have dinner with her.
Any additional comments?
The only disappointing thing was that it ended way too quick. I would definitely like to hear more from both the author and narrator. Each story was unique and I look forward to more from the imagination of Jonathan Chateau.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
