Everything You Need to Know About Macbeth

Everything You Need to Know About Macbeth

by Charles River Editors

*Includes a short biography of Shakespeare
*Explains the historical sources that inspired the story of Macbeth
*Summarizes every scene of Macbeth and analyzes them.
*Discusses the characters, plot, and major themes of Macbeth

“Stars, hide your fires!
Let not light see my black and deep desires.” – Macbeth

William Shakespeare is widely considered the greatest writer in the history of the English language, so renowned and respected that the time period in which he lived is often known as the Age of Shakespeare. Indeed, his genius is questioned only by those who doubt the authenticity of his authorship of timeless classics like Romeo and Juliet. As Ben Jonson once put it, “He was not of an age, but for all time.” No other writer, in English or in any other language, can rival the appeal that Shakespeare has enjoyed around the world, and nobody’s had a bigger influence.

The “Bard of Avon” has a catalogue full of the best known plays and poetry in history. His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those of any other playwright. His early plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication and artistry by the end of the 16th century. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about 1608, and in his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies. Even those who have never read works like Othello, Macbeth, King Lear, or Hamlet are instantly familiar with the names.

Although his works are so well known, major details of his life are still sketchy. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an actor, writer, and part owner of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, later known as the King’s Men. He appears to have retired to Stratford around 1613, where he died three years later. Few records of Shakespeare’s private life survive, and there has been considerable speculation about such matters as his physical appearance, sexuality, religious beliefs, and even whether the works attributed to him were written by others.

Macbeth is widely considered Shakespeare’s darkest play, and one of his most poignant tragedies. It follows Macbeth’s choices on his rise to power, the psychological impact the choices have on him, and the ultimate consequences of his actions. Like some of Shakespeare’s other tragedies, particularly Hamlet, Macbeth is both a character study and a cautionary tale.

Everything You Need to Know About Macbeth is the perfect resource for understanding Shakespeare’s shortest and bloodiest tragedy, including an introduction to the famous playwright and a comprehensive explanation of the play’s characters, plot, themes, and its influential and enduring legacy. With Macbeth as relevant as ever today, get caught up quickly with this resourceful guide.

The Gestalt Man

The Gestalt Man

by Anthony E. Cardenas

Michael Jeck suffers from severe dissociative identity disorder as a result of a series of traumatic incidents in his childhood. He has five separate and individual personalities–Kara, a brainy, intellectual woman trained as a medical examiner; Nick, an aggressive hit first ask questions later guy; Alex, the suave, sophisticated, educated man; Telly, a brainy teenager who is an expert with computers and technology; and Sara, a mute eight year old girl who creates mature, beautiful works of art to express herself.

Thanks to years of experimental psychotherapy, Jeck has managed to gain control over his five other personalities, not by suppressing them, but by living with them. He then uses their specific skills and talents to form a kind of think tank, capable of effectively solving complex and difficult crimes. In this way, he and his five personalities function as a unified whole, rather than individual parts–a truly gestalt personality.

Michael Jeck is now a special agent with the FBI and has garnered a reputation as an eccentric genius that can solve any case. Recently, however, he has been unable to crack a strange series of murders that appear to be completely different but also thinly connected to each other. Concerned with the lack of results, the Assistant Director of the FBI decides to assign Jeck a partner for the very first time.

Enter Grayson O’Neal, an FBI agent from the behavioral sciences division, whose mysterious past and strange eagerness to work with Agent Jeck causes a newfound tension amongst the normal “group” dynamic.

Together, Jeck and Grayson work to solve the mystery of the serial killings, at the same time trying to come to terms with their respective pasts, and their uncertain futures.

The Dacian Woman (Blood Moon)

The Dacian Woman (Blood Moon)

by Fay McDermott

In what would one day be known as Romania, it is the time of feudal landlords known as boyars. Those ruled by the boyars, both peasants and enslaved Romani, live their lives in the shadow of the ruling class with the knowledge that they share the land with the Old Ones. Rarely if ever seen, these ancient races are known from folklore; feared and hated for their terrible reputations.

The vampire Fane finds himself a year into his death, struggling with what he has become. His only hope for survival seems to lie with a Romani carnival of wonders and oddities. It doesn’t take him long to discover that the Ursari are holding more than just bears in their collection. Will he choose love and redemption, or will he give it all up for the revelations of his new existence?

The Dacian Woman is not what she appears to be when the darkly handsome stranger comes to her. Caged and maltreated, the woman’s secret is close to the surface, like the golden fur she will be unable to stop from flowing once Fane’s unlife is at stake.

This novella is 50,000 words long.



Inner Space Book One

Inner Space Book One

by Merlin Fraser

â??Before man can travel into outer space he must first
explore and conquer the inner space of his mind.’
Professor Harman Jones – 1995.

How well do you know your best friend?

How would you react if he was suddenly arrested for murder?

At 45 years of age with a broken childless marriage behind him, Detective Inspector Nick Burton is just coasting through life. That is until the day his boss, Chief Superintendent Dan Davies is arrested and charged with murder. In denial, Nick’s attempts to get at the truth are further hampered when Dan dies while in custody. Question is, did he commit suicide to avoid prosecution or was he murdered to prevent a scandal?

The deeper Nick delves into Dan’s life, the more he realises how little he really knew about the man. Someone sends Nick a ten year old video of a college professor giving a lecture, the content of which, although interesting, seems to have no bearing on this or any other case, whatsoever. However, when the same professor turns up at Dan’s funeral, Nick has to think again. The professor, now in a wheelchair, is accompanied by two assistants who act more like minders, one of them a beautiful woman whose startling green eyes draw Nick deep into her web.

Somewhere in the background, someone is leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for Nick to follow and he starts to resent the feeling of manipulation. Why don’t they just come forward and tell him what they know? If it was bad news about Dan, would he believe them? He has to find out the truth for himself.

As he puts the pieces together Nick is drawn into the mysterious world of parapsychology and psychic phenomena to a conclusion that belies everything he thought he understood. But beneath the academic calm of Cambridge University there lurks a dangerous undertow that everyone seems to have missed.

CTN - The Genesis (Criminal Termination Network)

CTN – The Genesis (Criminal Termination Network)

by Michael Dakota

The Genesis is the story of how the Criminal Termination Network was formed. It’s a fast paced, action packed story that will be hard to put down!

The following is comment is a typical reaction among the first readers of “CTN – The Genesis”

***** 5 Stars! My wife has been trying to get me to read more but I’m usually not interested. Once I got 1/4 of the way through this book however, I couldn’t put it down. The first night I read 60% of it and stayed up until 1:30! Once the plot starts to thicken and the suspense begins to build, it becomes an incredible page turner! Thanks for getting me started reading again!

Michael Dakota has a refreshing writing style that is normally not found in this type of action / adventure series. He blends thrilling action scenes with humor and realism to create a page turning adventure that’s hard to put down. It’s a fun, fast read that’s a perfect weekend escape!

A Message from the Author:

If you are looking for a unique action / adventure story that is not a cookie cutter copy of something you’ve read before then you will love this book. I guarantee when you reach the end it will leave you craving more, because that’s what everyone I’ve talked to personally has told me. I’ve been inspired by the fact that people who normally don’t read fiction are loving it and it’s appealing to both men and women. You can never write something with the intent of appealing to everyone, but I’m very excited by the broad interest this book is generating!

Sincerely,

Michael Dakota

—–

It all begins on July 4, 2026, our nation’s 250th anniversary. On the way back from the fireworks show Denver Mayor, Mark West stops at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes. While gone his new Corvette is hijacked with his wife still inside. As he races out of the store he is shot in the shoulder and wakes up in the hospital. Upon realizing what has happened he now has to try recreate the events so he can find the love of his life.

Before he is even out of the Intensive Care Unit his father-in-law (a retired Marine Colonel) shows up and is already organizing a search and rescue mission to find his daughter. In Afghanistan he had put together an elite special forces unit, so those members are his first choice. As they follow the trail left behind, they begin to see that there is much more to this than a simple car jacking gone wrong. The relatively simple search and rescue mission is just the beginning of a war on our own turf.

An excerpt of The Colonel explaining the messy situation
—————————————————————

Once back at the Hangar I was greeted by the Colonel. He had worked himself into such a frenzy that he made Mom look calm by comparison. “I don’t know what we’ve opened up here Mark, but this thing is far from over,” he ranted. “I have no idea what it is Colonel; I’m too exhausted to think straight,” I replied, having just dealt with my Mother. “This is a Goddamn nightmare is what it is,” he continued “they are totally wired; bulletproof cars like we’ve never seen and they are simultaneously in LA and Denver. Worse yet, none of them are in the system! Whoever is in the cars have all been wiped from the database and those dipshits that came out of the vans are like drones or clones or some damn thing. In 55 years of combat, I’ve never seen anything like it!” he stewed, pacing the hangar floor. “I was hoping they would just take the money and leave us alone,” I said in a defeated tone. “Oh ya, I’d sit around and hope shit like that Mark! I hope they don’t blow up my damn house, I hope they don’t shoot my wife and me dead! You have no idea what you are in here Mark. This is not over! It’s just the beginning!” he blasted. I could just feel my mood deflating more and more as the Colonel spoke.

Would our lives ever return to normal?

I'll Watch the Moon (Historical Fiction Best Sellers)

I’ll Watch the Moon (Historical Fiction Best Sellers)

by Ann Tatlock

The tender story of a polio victim and her friendship with an Auschwitz survivor who dreams of becoming the first man on the moon.

From Publishers Weekly

When polio stalked Minnesota in 1948, fear was every mother’s constant companion, as Tatlock (All the Way Home) shows in this well-written story for the evangelical Christian market. Young Nova Tierney and her older brother, Dewey, live a mostly idyllic life despite sharing living space with a motley assortment of tenants at the boarding house run by their Aunt Dortha and mother, Catherine. Dewey, nicknamed “Galileo” for his love of astronomy, dreams of some day walking on the moon, and he and Nova spend many happy hours looking at the night sky together in their backyard. When Dewey is hospitalized with polio, Nova promises to watch the moon for him (thus the title) until he is well. But will he recover? In her bitterness over a childhood secret, her late husband’s infidelity and her son’s desperate illness, his mother turns her back on God. “Sometimes, I wonder how we all go on living,” she muses. Hope begins to return when she strikes up a friendship with boarder and Auschwitz survivor Josef Karski. Meanwhile, Nova exchanges letters with her brother and dreams of having a father again. She takes comfort in the stars: “as long as the moon was in its place and the stars were burning and the planets were moving through their spheres… everything was all right.” This beautiful story laced with hope, redemption and forgiveness should find wide appeal among CBA readers.
Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Product Description
Award-winning novelist Ann Tatlock once again lovingly crafts a story that will touch readers’ hearts while illuminating a powerful spiritual truth.

I’ll Watch the Moon is the story of Catherine Tierney, angry at a God whom she no longer believes exists, and her painful journey back to faith. It is also the story of her friendship with Josef Karski, who teaches her how to trust in God as he reveals his own story of surviving the horrors of Auschwitz. And finally, it is the story of Nova Tierney, Catherine’s daughter, and the threads that bind their lives together. Ann Tatlock has skillfully and gracefully wove a tale readers won’t soon forget.

Reviews of this book

——————————————————————————–

“This is a moving and wonderfully encouraging novel…one of the most realistic and significant ones I’ve read, and one that leaves a great inspiration and message of trust in God for the outcome of all things…I highly recommend it.”
— Renownmagazine.com

“In post-World War II America, nine-year-old Nova Tierney worries about Russian bombs, but mostly she wants to find a suitable candidate to marry her mother and give her a new “pa.” Catherine, a tormented soul, is terrified that the polio epidemic will touch her children. When it does strike Nova’s 13-year-old brother, Dewey, Catherine weathers the blow via an unlikely friendship with a concentration camp survivor. Dewey’s dream is to be the first man to land on the moon, and Nova promises to “watch the moon” for him until he gets better. In her third novel, Tatlock continues to weave 20th-century history into absorbing, finely crafted literary tales with issues of spirituality springing naturally from the text. For all collections and readers who enjoy realistic and hopeful family dramas.”

Power Split

Power Split

by W. Ron Drynan

A Philosophical Thriller: What if an outdoorsman and an astronaut were in a position to prove – definitively – whether human beings possess an immortal soul, but neither is willing to die for The Answer?

Wildlife expert and extreme explorer Leon Berger is on top of his game with mini-series on the adventure networks and a loving family. His first excruciating blackout was dangerous. But when the second comes out of nowhere on an ice-climbing expedition gone deadly, he gets much-needed medical attention and maddening media scrutiny.

Ryder Pelse is a former stunt pilot with a shady military past turned astronaut for the commercial space tourism company run by abrasive billionaire William Daxton. Their top-secret test flights are light years ahead of NASA and the competition, but Ryder’s blackouts threaten the mission goal: Answering one of the most important questions facing humanity.

When the mysterious Hanlon connects the blackouts, he discovers the key to mankind’s most essential question: Do we have a soul? The proof he needs to fulfill his lifetime pursuit lies between the two men. Finding The Answer is an end he justifies by any means, regardless of whether he scuttles Daxton’s mission … or kills Ryder and Leon.

WARNING: This book contains scenes of action and violence, as well as strong language.

by Aunt T Pathfinder

A descendent of Millie Cheavers, although unknowingly, Annie Pierson had responsibilities to the planet Vardes which no other bloodline had, obligations which pulled her out of her comfortable world and on the run as she struggled to understand her new abilities. She ran from the Priests of Vardavrish who wanted to control her abilities and also from the Five Families who enjoyed seeing Millie’s descendents die.

Healing a two hundred year old train wreck, cleansing the false time trapping hundreds of souls, Annie had no doubt she must answer the call of Vardes and heal the other souls clustered on her surface, souls she could sense in her mind as reflections calling her forward. But with so many souls, Annie was unsure where to start.

That’s when Michael came forward, a shape changer hidden at her side since she was three years old, himself only a boy when he swore to protect her, to love her.

Dr. Jonathan Anderson, chair of the psychology department of Dallas’s most prestigious university, received a rejection letter on his life’s work. The next day, October 31, 2008, he got a second chance, an article confirming the existence of ghosts at the infamous Reindeer Manor.

The current owner, who only goes by Andy, has been running the property as a Halloween attraction for years. However, it’s not the attraction that is of interest to Anderson, but rather its true history.

Upon visiting the manor, he struck a deal with the owner to rent the entire property for five days, under the condition that all Halloween props are removed.

Unfortunately for Dr. Anderson, he got his way…

The stories are quick to read and each one immediately draws you into the lives of the narrator and their brushes with ghostly unexplained encounters.”

Carolyn Campbell: Author of three nationally-published books and 800 magazine articles in People, Redbook, Ladies’ Home Journal and Writer’s Digest. “This atmospheric and well-written collection of compelling stories is embodied with deftly rendered visions of the character of a city, intriguing insights into a variety of engaging personalities and fascinating revelations of a town’s colorful history, all sprinkled with a generous dollop of ghostly and mysterious fun. Pull up a chair and get ready to enjoy this spooky and spectacular treat!”

Caroll Shreeve: Author of Life Is Good, Victorian Details and The Wind Remembers. “Thirteen tease-your-mind stories enthrall with spooky twists guaranteed to give you shivers. The art of the short story is not dead. Neither are some mysterious ephemera you’ll meet wafting through this book!”

Natalie Curtis Pace: Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. President of the League of Utah Writers (2010.) “From You’re Only Young Once, to Secrets of a Two-Bit Artist’s Model, expect to be entertained with stories of adventure, drama and ghosts. Each author’s twists and turns about Two-Bit Street keep you wanting more. Historic 25th Street is brought to life with the stories of the ghosts who call it home. The eerie tales will chill you to the bone, leaving you guessing about what is real. These are ghost stories at their best.”

Shanna Francis: Editor of The Ogden Valley News. “Take a walk back through time down Ogden’s most colorful street and relive the history, hauntings, and even horror that contributed to its nefarious reputation. This collection of hauntingly eerie tales by some of the area’s top up-and-coming authors will carry you on an unforgettable ride that you don’t want to miss, one guaranteed to leave you hanging onto the edge of your seat.

Entanglement

Entanglement

by Maya Panika

There’s a serial killer on the loose and Angel Copperwheat knows his name, but the murderer is long dead and using Angel to power his quest to become a God. The police think Angel’s the murderer and maybe he is?

A tale of mirror worlds, kidnapped souls, murderous ghosts, quantum physics and the power of love.

Angel Copperwheat lives on the bubble-thin surface of what we call reality, surrounded by ghosts and the fractured moments of potential futures, living in more than one world. Angel has spent his life studying quantum physics, the magic of shamans, religions and myths and the threads that bind them, seeking the science of death and the afterlife, believing that nothing is inexplicable, merely unexplained, and always in hope of finding the answer to his biggest question, why me? Since he was a child, newly returned from the dead, Angel used his abilities selfishly, meddling with time and space in search of elusive happiness and the love he feels he doesn’t deserve.
The Reverend Forster, Vicar of St Swithun’s, knows who Angel is and what he is. Forster has tapped the cracks Angel opened in reality and used it to steal souls from the living, taking their power to fuel his quest to become a God. The empty bodies have been possessed by wandering ghosts and now Angel’s dull English home-town is a mess of blood, rape and murder. The dispossessed souls have charged Angel with putting the universe to rights; can Angel close the rift, restore lost souls to life, remain alive and keep his darkest secret, while holding on to the hard-won love of his friends in the now, the past and future?



Unrelenting Terror

Unrelenting Terror

by P.S. Power

Happy Halloween!

I love you, so please take this and be free. There isn’t much time left to find the way at all. I need you to remember now, and not live in the shadows of your mind anymore. Please come back to me…

This is the book that so many have been trying to suppress since it came out.

It isn’t for the weak, or the cowardly, at all. Many have read it and complained about the effects, which has caused more than a little controversy about the work. Have it for free today only, and save your copy, even if you can’t get yourself to read it, due to fear, because I don’t know how much longer it will be allowed out in the world.

What you’ve heard isn’t an urban legend…

There is a rumor a thing you’ve heard, an urban legend if you will. Some people in dark circles that know about such things claim that there’s a book that causes the person that reads it to be plagued by ghosts, spirits and possibly other, less savory, things.

This one, in fact.

It’s true.

Before you buy this, remember to ask yourself if you’re truly ready to experience the darkest things imaginable, because once you start reading, you will. Once you take that step there is no going back, no matter how much you wish it to be so. Please consider your actions carefully and commit to this when you’re ready, because some things should never be taken lightly. There is risk to starting this, but it doesn’t out weight the rewards. Not if you’re strong enough to face the truth.

There are things in the dark… waiting for you.

About the story:

This is a tale about a person very like yourself, who has lost the only person they’ve ever loved and seeks the power to get them back.

But there is a price for doing some things, and it must be paid in full. Always.

Special note from the author:

This book is literally meant to cause you to experience a haunting. Don’t say you weren’t warned later. Don’t complain to Amazon to have the positive reviews removed wither, just because it’s too scary for you. Things will happen to you, some of them far more intense than you expect, and it’s your own choice. Then again, life isn’t meant to be held at arms length, but rather lived to the fullest. This is a great place to start expanding horizons.

Angel in the Shadows, Book 1 (The Angel Series)

by Lisa Grace

The difference between vampires and angels? Angels are real.

Books 1 and 2 are in preproduction for a major movie through Motion Picture Pro Studios, which has been involved with five academy award winning movies.
Fifteen-year-old Megan Laughlin has a gift–or what seems like a curse at times. Megan sees angels and demons.
Megan knows her destiny is to protect her friends against dark angels who try to sway them into situations that can destroy their lives, their souls, and their eternity.
At school, she recognizes Judas, an über popular boy, as an evil angel hell-bent on destroying her and everyone she loves. As Judas spreads horrible rumors and overdoses two of her classmates at a rave, Megan realizes the enormity of his power. While classmates die, Megan, with the help of an angel, Johnny, and a team of friends will face the fight of their lives as they battle Judas.

Megan thinks God hasn’t given her any “special” powers, but discovers she has what she needs as she confronts Judas and his seemingly unconquerable power.

“Ms. Grace rocks the originality!” werevampsromance.org

“Lisa Grace creates a supernatural world, where the heroine is 100 percent human – a brilliant alternative to the vampire novels. If this is her first novel – I can’t wait to see what else she has in store for readers. A page-turner from start to finish.”  -Alexis Del Cid, CBS NEWS, KOIN-TV, Portland, Oregon

“Lisa Grace is a talented and exciting author. Suspense drips off each page. I look forward to her next work.” -Gretchen Hegelson, Book Reviewer, Phoenix, Arizona

Fat Vampire

Fat Vampire

by Johnny B. Truant

From the author of “The Bialy Pimps” comes a story of fangs and fast foodâ?¦

+++++

When overweight treadmill salesman Reginald Baskin finally meets a co-worker who doesn’t make fun of him, it’s just his own bad luck that tech guy Maurice turns out to be a thousand-year-old vampire.

And when Maurice turns Reginald to save his life, it’s just Reginald’s own further bad luck that he wakes up to discover he’s become the slowest, weakest, most out-of-shape vampire ever born, doomed to “heal” to his corpulent self for all of eternity.

As Reginald struggles with the downsides of being a fat vampire — too slow to catch people to feed on, mocked by those he tries to glamour, assaulted by his intended prey and left for undead — he discovers in himself rare powers that few vampires haveâ?¦ and just in time too, because the Vampire Council might just want his head for being an inferior representative of their race.

Fat Vampire is the story of an unlikely hero who, after having an imperfect eternity shoved into his grease-stained hands, must learn to turn the afterlife’s lemons into tasty lemon danishes.

A mother and her daughter face a deadly manifestation of guilt when government weather control experiments go awry; a lonely werewolf has a rough night on the town but finds love in the unlikeliest of places; an ancient sailing vessel carries some savage cargo; a detective’s search for a missing couple at their backwoods home leads him to a staggering discovery of awesome, and horrifying, proportions.

“Fulbright’s prose is every bit as sharp as America’s great pulp writers, yet there’s a humanity and a depth to his characters that has, on several occasions, left me slack-jawed in amazement. Fulbright is tough, passionate, and capable of scaring you like you haven’t been scared since childhood.” â??Joe McKinney, Bram Stoker award winning author of FLESH EATERS and MUTATED

True Nature

Katy sees this as an adventure, but Jim is haunted by the memories of the last days in that city.

While the wodies–short for “walking bodies”–are a threat, Jim and Katy soon learn the Clans of survivors in the city are much more dangerous. The siblings strike a deal with one such Clan: Help the Clan, and receive the medicine they need for their father. What starts as a supply run, however, quickly spirals out of control. As Jim and Katy travel further down the dark rabbit hole, they enter increasing horrors. Jim promises not to repeat the past, but can he stand against a darkness so great? Can Jim learn to resist the lifestyles the Clans have adopted, or will he find that savagery really is our truest nature?

Darkness

Darkness

by Sheri Ann Richerson

Darkness, it’s inevitable, or is it? Green eyes appear every night, hiding their true identity behind the veil of darkness, inducing tortuous feelings that words can’t begin to describe.

The Writing on the Wall

The Writing on the Wall

by Julie Morrigan

What if you only had as many days left to live as there are letters in your name?

What if an invisible hand shaped your destiny?

What if your night terrors were real?

These and other questions are posed in The Writing on the Wall, a collection of what might loosely be described as â??weird fiction’: strange happenings, dangerous artefacts, curses, cannibals, and witches. The stories tell of a world where no one is quite who you think they are and nothing is quite what it seems.

The collection comprises six short stories â?? including the prize-winning The Black Dog, a ghost story with a traditional feel that has been described as being in the style of M.R. James â?? plus the terrifying novelette-length title story.

A bonus story, Steven Miscandlon’s Frigid Air, will have you checking the contents of your refrigerator every half hour. Or possibly never opening the door again.

Prepare for chills and terror as you encounter the unusual, the unsettling and the downright horrific in The Writing on the Wall. Light the lamps. Lock the door. And whatever you do, don’t look behind you.



The Murder of Crows

The Murder of Crows

by David H. Sharp

When the sky is drenched with death, there is nowhere to hide.
Deep in forest the mutant crows were growing ever restless. Feasting on the indigenous wild life they had stripped the national park to its very bones. Now their cravings had pushed them in a search for other sources of flesh. Picking off lone walkers and weekend ramblers they had started to satisfy their bloodlust. But now the murder of crows was multiplying and their hunger was increasing, the thirst for human flesh was now too much to bear. Soon they would leave the darkness of their forest to enter the surrounding towns and city. No man woman or child would ever be safe again. The hunters had now become the hunted.



Winds of Change

Winds of Change

by Jason Brannon

A shooting star marks the beginning nightmares for the small town of Crowley’s Point. Those who venture outdoors instantly transform into piles of salt. Is it the result of biological experimentation gone awry? A terrorist’s plot? Or is it the fulfillment of a horrific Biblical prophecy?

Among those stranded in the local hardware store are a newlywed couple who may be hiding a secret, a hard-living family of four who are known primarily for their aversion to the law, and an elderly man that found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. As the carnage spreads and the mystery deepens, those trapped inside stumble across clues that hint at fallen angels, omens, and widespread bloodshed. And all signs indicate that one of the group who isn’t what they seem.

Will the survivors root out the impostor before it’s too late? Or will they all themselves transformed into piles of salt, blown asunder by Winds of Change?

“It is a rare treat to find a modern horror writer whose work is truly a mirror of the darkest corners of the world we all share. Jason Brannon is one to watch.”–Stephen Susco, screenwriter THE GRUDGE and PULSE

Drink for the Thirst to Come

by Lawrence Santoro

Here There Be Monsters: The fifteen stories of Drink for the Thirst to Come lead the reader into the darkest corners of the imagination. The people who inhabit these places are demons or angels; here, life ends horribly or stretches to the darkest eternity. Here, the world dies whimpering, ends with a bang, or goes down with the clack of a billion tiny teeth. Here, you’ll find all the standard tropes, vampires, zombies, ghosts, ghouls. You may not recognize them, not right away. They might be standing in a quiet corner or walking in a sunny field or seated next to you on a bus, they might be pulling up to the gas pump or, hell, they might be you, sitting there, reading the book.



Flux

Flux

by Mark R Faulkner

Iain is looking forward to the weekend when a number nineteen bus shatters his body, but broken bones are the least of his worries.

In this disturbing yet darkly funny novel, Iain’s near death experience is not a vision of exquisite godliness with light at the end of a tunnel. Instead he experiences a place of darkness and heat, inhabited by foul creatures, the sounds of suffering and a beast.

During a long recovery Iain becomes plagued by nightmares and premonitions, shadowy apparitions, a magpie, and a vile old man. They all have a message, that something wants Iain and it won’t give up easily.

Iain’s friends do their best to cheer him up in the best ways they know how, until the unexpected events of one sunny afternoon mean that he is on his own, caught up in the age old battle of good versus evil.

NECESSARY EVIL

NECESSARY EVIL

by Janelle Taylor

1990 – Atlanta, Georgia

Is there a serial killer on the prowl? Or is someone just yanking the blindfold off Lady Justice?

“The Bible says, “If men strive, and hurt a womanâ?¦
He shall be punished. Though shalt give life for life.
Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand,
Foot for foot, Burning for burning,
Wound for wound, stripe for stripe.”
I say, “Heaven and victims raged
As another beast was set free.
Taking an eye for an eye was left up to me.
If Justice is blind or her hands are bound,
Rejoice, Good Citizens, for I am around.”

It was signed The Avenger in typed print

Now justice had a name and Lt. Dan Mallory and his squad had to stop him from avenging heinous crimes against women.

But The Avenger proved smarter and more deadly than any killer they had ever
tracked. No clues. No forensics. Nothing – but a trail of mutilated bodies of men the courts had set free on technicalities.

Were the victims connected? And were they really victims or just finally paying for their crimes?

Lt. Dan Mallory had his suspicions. Crime reporter James Starr knew more than he should about The Avenger and his victims. And Starr also knew more than he should about Mallory’s past.

New York Times bestselling author Janelle Taylor brings you a psychological thriller that will shock you with its intensity as she takes you into the darkest regions of revenge. When justice really becomes blind, the Avenger steps in and becomes a Necessary Evil

NECESSARY EVIL is not for the faint of heart.

GRITTY DARK GRAPHIC VIOLENT SPELL-BINDING

A page turner that will leave your heart pounding – and make you check the locks on your doors and windows

Warning – this book and its violent scenes and language is for mature audiences only.

Weeping Willows

Weeping Willows

by B. J. Robinson

A young couple tries to outlast another couple and survive a haunted mansion to win a honeymoon in Hawaii. Angela peeked out the window. “They’re beautiful. What are they?”
“Beautiful and deadly if ingested.” Kevin stressed. “Oleander bushes.”
Angela glanced out the window again. “They sure bloom beautiful flowers. It’s hard to think something so pretty could be so deadly.”
“Yes, their beauty is deceptive, like a woman.”
When I was a little girl, Daddy was in the process of building my mother a home on an Angie, Louisiana red cliff. I remember standing on the edge and looking down into what was an abyss to me. Of course, I was small so perhaps that cliff wasn’t as high as it appeared and the gulley may not have been as deep. This story was born out of that experience and the use of my writer’s imagination. Daddy sold the house in Angie before he finished it and moved us to another part of Louisiana so Mom could be near her people. He knew he wouldn’t be around much longer. We lost him when I was four on Christmas Day, so I have only my early childhood memories of Angie, Louisiana, which neighbored Bogalusa, Louisiana, and a paper mill we could smell when the wind blew. When the wind blew just right, we could still smell it all those miles away in our new Louisiana home. This is a contemporary short story set in Louisiana.

What Would Boricio Do? (Dark Crossings)

What Would Boricio Do? (Dark Crossings)

by David Wright

UPDATE: The full collection of six Dark Crossings shorts can now be found in Dark Crossings Volume 2 at one low price. www.amazon.com/dp/B0095PJOC6/

For fans of “Yesterday’s Gone” and “Dexter,” comes a killer with no remorse and just two rules.

From the writers of the post-apocalyptic serial thriller, Yesterday’s Gone, comes this Dark Crossings short story featuring Yesterday’s Gone’s fan favorite, serial killer Boricio Wolfe in this solo outing which takes place before the events of Yesterday’s Gone.

WHAT WOULD BORICIO DO? (FATHER OF THE YEAR)

Boricio Wolfe abides by only two rules:

1) Always use the best ingredients when cooking.
2) Don’t shit where you eat.

The only way a serial killer can keep a (somewhat) normal life is to stick to the rules — especially the second one. Boricio has finally found a job that doesn’t make him homicidal, and is working his way to working in the restaurant of his dreams. All he has to do is keep out of trouble and impress Mr. Jules, a man who owns some of the best restaurants in the state.

And Boricio is on the fast track to being a top chef… if he just sticks to the rules.

But how long can Boricio stick to those rules when a young kid with an abusive father comes into his restaurant, just begging to be killed?

Because nothing sets Boricio off quite like abusive fathers.

Should he turn a blind eye?
Should he just leave well enough alone?
Or should he give the kid an early Christmas gift and kill his prick of a father?

What Would Boricio Do?

(11,498 words)

WARNING: What Would Boricio Do? is an adult story with adult depictions of violence and sexual activity. This work is meant for adults only.

This is a story where a serial killer/rapist is the main character. He is vile, crude, and a monster. If this isn’t your cup of tea, stop reading now because you WILL be offended.

Really, REALLY offended.

If you think that vulgarity is a sign of ignorance, then this book is gonna be a whole lotta duh, duh, and more duh.

You might even be tempted to save anyone from buying such trash by writing one star reviews and writing about how we’re monosyllabic monkeys who are ruining literature as you know it.

Which is how we know we’re writing good shit.

If you’re still here, welcome!

You get us.

You get that while bad words aren’t necessary, sometimes they are â?? especially when you’re writing about monsters.

Because there’s only one thing worse than a book full of profanity, and that’s a book where Boricio says, “Isn’t that some beer battered bull doody?”

We hope you enjoy this look at Boricio before the events of Yesterday’s Gone: Episode 1 as much as we enjoyed writing it!

Thank you for reading,
Sean and David

Zomby Dick or, The Undead Whale

Zomby Dick or, The Undead Whale

by Herman Melville

Ishmael was raging after zombies killed his wife and child. He became a legendary member of the reviled Militia, fighting the undead horde that had begun to lurch out of California three years earlier. Laudanum helped blunt the pain of what he had seen and done, and from what he had yet to do. Finally, bone-weary and spent after completing that last horrible task, Ishmael wallows in the November of his soul. He flees the plaguey land to ship aboard the ill-fated Pequod, ruled by mad dismasted Captain Ahab.

Fedallah, ancient Parsee mystic and zomby master, shares arcane knowledge with Ahab in the quest for the White Whale, including the secret of two rare zomby types, and a recipe for immortality. On deck, all is not as it seems to Ishmael, whose dark past continues to haunt him.

On The Pequod with crazy Captain Ahab, Ishmael and his tattooed friend Queequeg are in even greater peril than they were ashore. The secrets Ishmael discovers in Ahab’s log change everything he knows about Ahab’s insanity, the source of the undead plague, and the life-cycle of zombies.

Couldn’t get through the original? Want to re-experience the yarn? Melville’s enduring classic has been shamelessly edited to cut the boring bits and the addition of Ishmael’s tragic backstory and Ahab’s logbook add dark fathoms of depth to Melville’s epic.



The Bone Fire (a mystery of the shaman spirit world)

The Bone Fire (a mystery of the shaman spirit world)

by Gordon Reid

Praise from Amazon reviews for Gordon Reid’s debut novel, An Inquisition of Demons:

â??I soon found I could not put the book down.’

â??This is a very satisfying book to read.’

â??The story here is fantasy of the highest order.’

â??Gripping, exciting and thought-provoking.’

â??A totally gripping read. Highly recommended.’

————————————–

Now here is Gordon’s second novel, The Bone Fire.

Homeless people are disappearing from the streets of Edinburgh. Nick Cosgrove’s niece Alison has vanished too, and he’s been asked by his estranged sister to find her. But what is the meaning of his dream: a girl hanging from a cross under alien stars, trapped between a bonfire and the restless ocean?

Jason is a 14 year-old boy, adrift in a new school, in a strange city. When he is befriended by his charismatic classmate Lee and the mysterious stranger Owen, his life begins to take off. But both Lee and Owen hide secrets, and Jason has a lot to learn – and Owen is a man on a mission.

As the various strands come together, the solution to these mysteries will challenge all their beliefs about life, and especially – as the story builds to a climax in the desolate, twilight shamanic spirit world – death.

An original fantasy featuring a cast of characters including Merlin the magician and an Arthurian knight newly awoken from slumber under the bald Welsh hills, The Bone Fire is both a compelling mystery story in its own right and a profound meditation on what happens to our souls when we dieâ??

â??if, that is, we are fortunateâ?¦



These Strange Worlds: Fourteen Dark Tales

These Strange Worlds: Fourteen Dark Tales

by Daniel Powell

“In Powell’s twisted stories, the bizarre thrives right alongside everyday ordinariness. Girls turn into crayons, zombies lure the living with irresistible Ponzi schemes, hotel suites turn macabre band managers. All the while, menace lurks in the most mundane thingsâ??in the smile of a genial salesman, in the unassuming hitch hiker on a lonely road, even in babies. In â??Buy it Now’, an innocent online purchase changes a man’s life forever. A wall in â??Brinn’s Mural’ gives new meaning to the word â??self defense’ when it is threatened by neighborhood vandals. A man discovers a changeling in place of his baby, in the deftly plotted shocker, â??Usurper’. â??9 Curzon Place’ tells the tale of an apartment inducting musicians into a ghostly rock band of its own making, while an old campus building in â??The Light in Greenbriar Hall’ houses an unpleasant surprise for anyone foolish enough to intrude on its solitude. â??The Graduate Student’, the story of a college professor with a unique approach to balancing his work and his writing , offers a darkly humorous take on the theme of the undead. And after reading â??Dinner at Shorty’s’ , you might never step into a diner on a lonely road again.” – Lavanya Karthik, BOOKPLEASURES.COM

Supernatural narratives represent an important component of our storytelling heritage.

These storiesâ??including fairy tales, urban legends, penny dreadfuls and modern pulps, among many othersâ??leave a resonant echo throughout popular culture. In THESE STRANGE WORLDS, Daniel Powell’s first collection of dark short fiction, these influences collide in fourteen startling and entertaining stories.

The lone survivor of a worldwide flu epidemic grows strangely attached to her parasitic partnerâ?¦

A malevolent London rental has a voracious appetite for rock stars, and it’s building one hell of a bandâ?¦

A wealthy oil trader is offered a glimpse into another dimension, but is the cost more than he can possibly bear?

From Satanic salesmen to zombie Ponzi schemes; from murdering murals to alien invasions, and other curious encounters along the way, These Strange Worlds takes readers on fourteen excursions into the realm of the uncanny. A mixture of new and previously published short stories, Powell’s first collection embodies the spectrum of imaginative possibility that is the hallmark of compelling speculative fiction.

A Pine Box Vacation

A Pine Box Vacation

by Mr. E

This e-Book is a smart, adrenaline infused action ride. These unique and experimental action stories cut right to the action and never let go, filling every reader with eager anticipation and excitement.

This is a reader’s black buffet of dark and foreboding horror / action mixed with sarcastic and hilarious crime noir. BLEEDING OUT is an edgy story in this collection bridging the gap between action and horror and deals with a father’s struggle to survive against a flesh eating virus. On the other hand, WE WERE THE PEOPLE is a tongue in cheek exploitation of the modern crime story, complete with outlandish dialogue, explosive battles, unforgettable characters and taboo topics. SABACHO is a sister story dealing with the formation of one of the main characters. THE CHURCH is a psychological conflict between a preacher’s job and his own conscience. And THE JOURNAL OF THOMAS RED is a history buff’s dream come true. The story is loosely based on the real southern hero, Lewis Redmond and his exploits and confrontations with the American Government post civil war. Finally, PINE NEEDLES is a terrifying look into the mind of a deranged killer in southern Appalachia.
Filled with memorable characters, intense gun fights, witty dialogue and much more, these stories read more like a movie than a book, allowing even the most impatient reader to envision the action frame by frame. This collection is a treat for anyone interested in action / adventure, crime noir, politically taboo topics or just an exciting read.



The Silver Coast and Other Stories

The Silver Coast and Other Stories

by Daniel Powell

Collected here for the first time, THE SILVER COAST AND OTHER STORIES features eleven disquieting explorations of the human condition.

Retribution and reunion. Mutation and madness. Famine and hunger and war and disease.

These tales investigate the dark margins of human curiosity.

What really happened in Muhammad Ali’s last fight?

Does Florida’s skunk ape exist and, if it does, where did it come from?

What lurks beneath that slipcover on the side of that old house at the end of the street?

Go aheadâ??take a peek! Satisfy your curiosity, and take a long walk down the rocky sands of the Silver Coastâ?¦

THE SILVER COAST AND OTHER STORIES had me longing for my favorite college writing classes, where unbridled creativity was encouraged and transforming this creativity into words was required. It is often so hard to find the courage and motivation to sit down and write, but stories like the ones in The Silver Coast get the imagination rolling and the words flowing.

When Gymkhana Smiles

When Gymkhana Smiles

by Gretchen Rix

A young and pretty black girl stands at the cusp of adulthood, only one last ceremonial act left before she takes over leadership of her predatory and fearsome family.

And there it sits, all tied up in the chair in the middle of the apartment living room, waiting, but not willing. Not willing at all.

As her family has traveled the southern and eastern shorelines of the United States for generations, they travel now, taking strangers by force (and sometimes family as well) for their time-honored and hugely messy sacrificial rites. And when Gymkhana smiles about this particular nasty twist to her plans, they’d better run.

When Ardo Met Ozzy (The Storm Series)

When Ardo Met Ozzy (The Storm Series)

by Alan Scott

I wanted to write a series of short stories, between 1500 and 3000 words, to promote my Storm series of books. I am hoping these stories will:

a. be easily accessible to new readers of the series
b. add something new to those who have read “Echoes” and/or “Scions”
c. be self-contained stories

However, most importantly of all, I hope they will be entertaining.

The fourth and final of these short promo stories is “When Ardo Met Ozzy”. It takes place roughly half way through “Scions of the Storm”.

My next project will be a third book in my Storm series of books.

I hope you enjoy and are entertained.

The Practice of Hurricanes

The Practice of Hurricanes

by David Conway

If you’ve never lived through a hurricane, and even if you have, you might like this essay about life in Key West during the most active hurricane seasons on historical record. The back-to-back hurricane seasons of 2004 and 2005 broke all kinds of historical records and left damages in the multiple billions across Florida and the Southeastern U.S. Key West saw many of those storms pass close by its shores and felt the effects of others, including Frances, Jeanne, Ivan, Katrina and Wilma.

Floods, evacuations, business closures, road blocks and finding fish in trees and boats in the road were just a matter of course in Key West those summers, but it wasn’t all bad. There were lessons to be had from those storms, too, and ways to go on living in a place that might be blown away before your eyes.

This is a personal essay which includes statistical information about those two record-breaking hurricane seasons and a look at popular science, and Key West superstition, concerning the increasing frequency and severity of hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin.

“A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” – Jack Dempsey

“To prove I am great, he will fall in eight.” – Muhammad Ali

“Everybody in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter.” – Mike Tyson

During a time when America’s heroes were recognized for toughness and strength, Jack Dempsey was the prototypical “golden boy” of the Roaring Twenties. Just as Babe Ruth, Red Grange, Bill Tilden and Bobby Jones were the signature figures for their respective sports, Dempsey personified the sport of boxing.

Dempsey’s aggressive style in the ring and the punch he packed made him the heavyweight champion by 1913, and by the time Dempsey lost the title to U.S. Marine Gene Tunney in 1926 and retired following their controversial 1927 rematch (a fight known as “The Long Count”), he was one of the most popular and richest athletes in history, and he parlayed that into success in everything from owning a restaurant to authoring books.

The sports world has never suffered from a shortage of self-promoters, but none have ever walked the walk and backed up the talk like Muhammad Ali, boxing’s greatest icon and possibly history’s most famous athlete. Indeed, even referring to Ali just as a boxer does a disservice to the transcendent figure he has become around the world as a living legend.

Of course, the legend of Ali begins in the squared circle, where a young, brash kid named Cassius Clay rose to the top of the boxing world with a style so unorthodox that anyone else attempting it would all but assure he’d get knocked out. But Ali became the heavyweight champ by keeping his hands low, “floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee”, and outboxing heavyweight champions like Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, and Floyd Patterson. Though he was both loved and hated during his career, since his retirement, Ali has remained one of sports’ greatest icons across the globe, and he has been honored with too many awards to count. Held in awe just about everywhere, Ali has lit the torch at the Olympics, received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and received the Presidential Citizens Medal, among other honors.

Iron Mike Tyson was one of the most feared opponents to ever step into a boxing ring. With unbelievable power that floored or stopped all but two of his first 28 professional opponents, Tyson began an unprecedented ascent to the top of the boxing world, becoming the youngest champion in history with a second round TKO over Trevor Berbick, the last man to box and defeat Muhammad Ali. That victory, in November 1986, prompted one British sports reporter to write, “The noble and manly art of boxing can at least cease worrying about its immediate future, now it has discovered a heavyweight champion fit to stand alongside Dempsey, Tunney, Louis, Marciano and Ali.”

Tyson became one of the biggest names in sports during the 1980s and could literally do no wrong in the ring, compiling a 37-0 record with 33 KO/TKOs. Unfortunately, as everyone knows today, the unprecedented nature of his rise is rivaled only by his stunning fall from grace. Tyson lost one of the sport’s greatest upsets to Buster Douglas before going to prison for rape. And when Tyson got out of prison, his career simply became surreal. After winning a few belts back, he lost two bouts to Evander Holyfield, infamously biting part of Holyfield’s ear off out of frustration during the rematch. The man once billed as an all time great was now more of a one man circus than anything else.

Knockout Kings chronicles the lives, legends and controversies of the 3 iconic boxers with pictures, bibliographies and more. Learn about Dempsey, Ali and Tyson like you never have before.

“Everybody in boxing probably makes out well except for the fighter.” – Mike Tyson

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history’s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors’ American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America’s most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known.

Iron Mike Tyson was one of the most feared opponents to ever step into a boxing ring. With unbelievable power that floored or stopped all but two of his first 28 professional opponents, Tyson began an unprecedented ascent to the top of the boxing world, becoming the youngest champion in history with a second round TKO over Trevor Berbick, the last man to box and defeat Muhammad Ali. That victory, in November 1986, prompted one British sports reporter to write, “The noble and manly art of boxing can at least cease worrying about its immediate future, now it has discovered a heavyweight champion fit to stand alongside Dempsey, Tunney, Louis, Marciano and Ali.”

Tyson became one of the biggest names in sports during the 1980s and could literally do no wrong in the ring, compiling a 37-0 record with 33 KO/TKOs. On top of that, he was the face of the iconic Nintendo game Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!, a favorite among every video gamer in Generations X and Y. It was a stunning rise for a kid who grew up poor with no father in rough neighborhoods of New York City. Taunted for his now instantly recognizable high voice and lisp, Tyson was quick to fight and a petty criminal who became orphaned upon his mother’s death when he was 16. Somehow, 4 years later, he was the heavyweight champion of the world.

Unfortunately, as everyone knows today, the unprecedented nature of his rise is rivaled only by his stunning fall from grace. In February 1990, Tyson was knocked out by Buster Douglas in one of boxing’s greatest upsets. Though he won his next few fights, his career was derailed by his conviction for raping Desiree Washington, landing him in prison for 3 of his prime fighting years.

When Tyson got out of prison, his career simply became surreal. After winning a few belts back, he lost two bouts to Evander Holyfield, infamously biting part of Holyfield’s ear off out of frustration during the rematch. He had another stint in jail before the end of the â??90s, and his odd comments before his loss to Lennox Lewis ensured that the man once billed as an all time great was now more of a one man circus than anything else. In 2003, near the end of a career that had netted him $300 million, Tyson declared bankruptcy, hitting rock bottom.

Today Tyson is nostalgically remembered as one of boxing’s great heavyweights, but that shares the pedestal with his controversial quotes and antics. American Legends: The Life of Mike Tyson looks at the life and career of Iron Mike both inside and outside of the ring, including all his famous ups and infamous downs.
