* The Clockmaker from ''Literature/ThePrefect''. A completely unknown, unknowable HumanoidAbomination that builds watches and clocks which may at any time spring a BodyHorror-inducing BoobyTrap on some poor unsuspecting individual. It also looks something like a cross between [[TheTerminator the T-1000]] and {{TheSlenderMan|Mythos}}.

Imagine knowing that your mind, your memories, the very essence of your being was being erased forever...''being fully cognizant of it and '''being unable to do anything to stop it'''.''

Nightmare Fuel cleanup; see thread for reference
* Multiple short stories from Reynolds' ''Galactic North'' anthology fit the NightmareFuel bill. In the ''Nightingale'' story, the protagonists [[spoiler:set out on an exploration mission of a supposedly abandoned medical spacecraft that ends up being a ''LivingShip''. In the end the team is surgically fused by the ship into a single ''BodyHorror'' being to send message about the horrors of war]].

* Skade's torture of Clavain. Made worse by the fact that first, he voluntarily stops his neural implants from blocking the pain; second, that it is not described--the story picks up afterwards; and third, that Skade made Scorpio, who had [[FireForgedFriends become close to Clavain]], carry out the torture just so [[CompleteMonster she could enjoy it more]].

Moved from the general Lit NF page.

* ''Diamond Dogs'' features a mysterious "OnlySmartPeopleMayPass" tower; the maths puzzles inside get progressively harder, and the penalties for wrong answers get progressively more horrible. In the end, it turns out that the strange rocks the protaganist found on the plain around the tower were actually [[spoiler:the shredded remains of his friend, who was diced by the tower and ejected like confetti. ''Repeatedly'']]. The top of the tower is not worth it. * Multiple short stories from Reynolds' ''Galactic North'' anthology fit the NightmareFuel bill. In the ''Nightingale'' story, the protagonists [[spoiler:set out on an exploration mission of a supposedly abandoned medical spacecraft that ends up being a ''LivingShip''.
