Dreams and Legends

by Jason Spadaro

Dreams and legends…nightmares and fables. They touch the real.

“The figure by the fire interrupted his thoughts. ‘There are pacts, older than us. Contracts older than mankind. The bonesâ?¦ they cry out for tribute.'”

What happens when the unreal becomes real? This scifi/horror anthology by Jason Spadaro explores the middle between the imagination and reality.

Featuring:

The Wake – In a far future, Dream Tourism is a fledgling industry. What happens to the people that make these fantastic locations when things go wrong?

The Wilderness – Sam and Carter think they’re going camping, but then dead legends demand their help with a long forgotten pact.

The Trouble with Bears – Joe’s not a likable guy. It’s not too surprising when Animal Control gets an unusual call, and no one wants to listen to him.

For The Loss Of The Rose – “Bone Teeth looked at Gobble Dawn with forlorn eyes, all weeping and looking for answers. Gobble Dawn was going to have none of it. The rose was dead. They’d watched it die. No amount of sadness was going to bring it back.”

A Crisis Of Faith – When death is dead, the possibility of reincarnation can shake belief.

Our Spot – “Things get complicated. One, two, three, *thud*, and then you’re there, covered in blood and covered in eyes and lesions. So much blood. It all started with Tommy, and his great idea.”

The Lock And The Clock – The moment before escape.

How do our history and dreams make us?

Aided by friends, family, and a nearly godlike computer surviving on the moon Owen Erindale stands between a new dawn and the Long Night.



Dr. Prescott and the Beast of Legend (The Adventures of Doctor Prescott Book 1)

by Sebastian Davis

“I do wonder if my mind has somehow crossed over the line that separates sanity and insanity,” Dr. Prescott nervously moved his right leg whilst he peeled the skin of his right thumb with his index finger, “Even though I have yet to voice my reason for being here I cannot help but to assume that she believes me to be crazy; is that crazy of me to believe? I mean, I am sitting in front of a Psychologist after all!”



The Plot

by Sharon A. Austin

While writing his own how-to book on gardening, Leland Gardner learned there are many superstitions and omens associated with plants. To ensure prosperity while setting himself apart from other florists he invents a machine that turns natural ingredients into an extraordinary green liquid fertilizer.

When a mouse falls into the machine the formula is dramatically transformed. In order to recreate this magical product that guarantees maximum growth potential along with brilliant flowers he’d have to add two more ingredients. Blood and bones. But how and where would he get them?

Excerpt:

If he lets her get away with it she’ll keep thinking she can do this. He grew angry and frustrated as he searched his pockets for the receipt. Leland Gardner, normally a shy and quiet little man, lagged behind the rest of the departing moviegoers still fuming about being overcharged for his food and drink at the concession stand earlier by a teenage girl more interested in flirting with boys than in accurately ringing up his order. Or were the casual flirtations simply a clever ruse to divert everyone’s attention while she pocketed some of his money? Whatever the reason for her poor behavior, the whole ordeal ruined his once a month movie day at the Hummer Bird Theater.

By the time he reached the lobby he changed his mind about confronting her; two waiting lines had formed at the concession stand. He smacked a hand against the glass exit door and shoved it open. Staggered out into the blinding Saturday afternoon sunshine. Shielding his eyes, he scanned the crowded parking lot for his old station wagon.
