The Lair of the White Worm

by Bram Stoker

At the peak of his career, Abraham “Bram” Stoker (November 8, 1847 – April 20, 1912) was working as an assistant for his friend, Shakespearean actor Sir Henry Irving, a well known and acclaimed actor in his day. But it would be the assistant whose name would outshine the boss’s.
 
Stoker, an Irish novelist and short story writer, is known around the globe for his Gothic horror character Dracula. Inspired in part by his friend Irving, as well as the notorious Vlad the Impaler, Stoker studied stories about vampires, but ultimately his Count Dracula would become synonymous with the famous monsters. And drawing off his experience as a newspaper writer, Stoker wrote Dracula as a collection of realistic diary entries, telegrams, letters, ship’s logs, and newspaper clippings, all of which made the story that much scarier and unique. 



The Headhunter (Shorting the Undead & Other Horrors)

by Saul Tanpepper

The first time Karen was taken away from him, Bill Hawkins wanted to die. The second time, all he wanted to do was kill.

A year after the the Zombie Uprising, former corporate headhunter Bill Hawkins finds himself in a new profession. Same title, but with a completely different skill set. Now the candidate he’s bent on finding is the she-monster who stole his wife – and his life – away from him.

The constant danger, the hiding, the brutality of his profession, all begin to take their toll on him. Each night is a nightmare, each day a distraction. And the preacher-turned-hunter that Bill teams up with isn’t helping. Reggie’s convinced the Uprising was God’s Rapture, and he’s constantly proselytizing that maybe zombies are God’s children. Who are the Blessed and the Sinners? Will the meek inherit the earth? Or will the monsters?

Confused and worn down, Bill begins to question his purpose. Is he doing the right thing by seeking vengeance?

More importantly, when he finally does find her – the young female beast who brutally murdered Karen - will he take pity on her soul or will he surrender his own to hell?

The Headhunter is a selected title from the short story collection “Shorting the Undead: A Menagerie of Macabre Mini-Fiction” (release date: December 2011).

Ages: young adults, adults.

Saul Tanpepper is a writer of short stories and novels of speculative fiction for the undead of all ages. He lives in Northern California.

The Warthog And The Princess

Bless those who can dream, opening doors to worlds of splendor

or mayhem. Having the ability to travel back and fourth in time

zones that one can only reach in dreams. Having the keys to

sleepy town will take you places far and above the imaginations.

Some forget after they reach a certain age, that our dreams keep

our youth with us always. The Warthog And The Princess is a book

designed for those with imagination and to help those that have

forgotten that they have one. Dive in and forget where you are

for a moment, let us go back in time together. See how Kingdoms

divided cannot stand against unity and how good always prevails

as King Rahoe fights Lord Warthog to keep him from taking

his kingdom by force. Beauty and enchantment will fill your

mine with wonder as you read this book of medieval fantasies.
