Heart of Darkness

by Joseph Conrad

The reaches opened before us and closed behind, as if the forest had stepped leisurely across the water to bar the way for our return. We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness.
As the peak of European Imperialism, steamboat captain Charles Marlow travels deep into the African Congo on his way to relieve the elusive Mr Kurtz, an ivory trader renowned for his fearsome reputation. On his journey into the unknown Marlow takes a terrifying trip into his own subconscious, overwhelmed by his menacing, perilous and horrifying surroundings. The landscape and the people he meets force him to reflect on human nature and society, and in turn Conrad writes revealingly about hypocrisy, morality and the dangers of imperialism.

“Heart of Darkness” is an eminent instance of the literary evocation of evil, and we can see how it might be regarded as a representation of the concept of original sin in fresh and secular terms. â??T. S. Eliot
The heavy hypnotic style [of “Heart of Darkness”] falls around me again, and I am aware of the poverty of my own. â??Graham Greene
One of my favorite books. â??William Faulkner
Conrad endeavored to create a great, massive, multiphase symbol that would render his total vision of the world, his sense of individual destiny, his sense of man’s place in nature, his sense of history and society. â??Robert Penn Warren

Dark War: Retribution

by Mark Walker

It’s 1985

West Germany teeters on the brink of defeat. The American V Corps is all but crushed, and Soviet armored formations rush to the French border. In a small town near the North Sea, a temporary POW camp holds hundreds of NATO soldiers… and a terrible secret that could turn the tide of battle. The truth, however, is more sinister than they could possibly imagine. This truth involves a formidable vampire warrior, an ancient and powerful witch and the key to saving the world from a destructive force that will make World War III look like a small town fireworks display.

Welcome back to Mark Walker’s Dark War: a series set in the midst of World War III, thundering with authentic battles, and screeching with the bone-chilling cries of the dark entities unleashed by the war’s massive bloodletting. It’s military horror at its best. It’s Dark War: Retribution.

Forced Memory

by Ronald Thomas

Henry Adamson knows his wife is in danger. He knows someone at her company is planning to kill her. He knows it deep in his soul. He just doesn’t know why he knows it. Or when he found out. Still, he’ll fight for his wife’s life despite the uncertainty. Angry and half-mad from lack of sleep and fear, Henry nearly murders an innocent man

People enter his life, offering explanations of the false memories. Stories of secret psychic organization, rouge telepathic terrorist and long hidden government secrets are offered as explanation.

Henry and others who have been effected must learn what is real and who they can trust. The wrong choice will result in madness and death. The right choice might avoid madness.

False Memory is a horror thriller in the spirit of Scanners and Push filled with tension, guns, and a few exploding heads.

“If you’re a fan of shadow organizations and/or conspiracy theories, Confabulation offers them up in spades. Add to that an interesting exploration of the power of the mind, infused with a nice twist that psychic ability doesn’t merely exist but that it’s able to be remotely manipulated, and you more than have the makings for some serious psychological suspense.” – Book Reviews by Elizabeth A. White

The Deadsong

by Brandon Hardy

Gina Starkweather lives in Hemming, a rural Tennessee town where thirteen children die each year from snakebite. It has been an expected phenomenon for nearly twenty years, and only the victims’ mothers suspect why. They wouldn’t have had children at all, had a stranger not appeared and promised them the gift of life.

These desperate mothers finally bore children without knowing their offspring would never reach adulthood.

It has been written off as myth, a local legend that speaks of one called the Keeper of Serpents who comes in the night with his army of snakes to claim those born under the stranger’s contract before their eighteenth birthday. When Gina learns of her own mother’s deal with Death, she and her brother set out to find the Keeper before her time runs out.

Virgin Sacrifice: A Short Tale of Terror (Land of Fright Book 42)

by Jack O’Donnell

The world is out of balance. A professor of archaeology is determined to set the world right again using the ancient power of the Aztec sacrifice rituals. He embarks on a trip back to the hidden temple he discovered in the jungles of Mexico, bringing along three virgin womenâ?¦

Virgin Sacrifice is the forty-second short horror story in the Land of Frightâ?¢ series of horror short stories. The Land of Frightâ?¢ series is intended for mature audiences.

He Was So Close!

Three virgins were going to accompany him on his trip to Mexico. Professor Ansel Langridge couldn’t believe his good fortune. Three virgin women. He only needed one of them, but bringing along three of them practically assured a positive outcome. Ansel stared at the small Aztec ceremonial knife he held in his hand. He was so close! The plane was leaving tomorrow. Tomorrow! The four-inch blade was made of flint, its hard surface rough with irregular edges, the top edge of the stone hacked into a sharpened point. The blade had a light, grayish-brown color to it, with a darker brown at its sharp edge. The handle was made of cedar wood, covered in a turquoise and shell mosaic that represented the Aztec Eagle Knight, a symbol of power, strength, and courage. He wasn’t certain of the exact age of the sacrificial dagger, but he surmised it was most likely used around 1400 to 1525 CE.

Ansel closed his fingers around the hilt of the knife; the handle felt cool in his hand. He believed. He believed in the power of the ancient rituals. He had seen and read too many things in his studies to deny their strength. The rituals worked if they were strictly adhered to. Yes, they worked, and he was going to renew their power by performing them. He would forge a new world based on the grandeur and splendor of the old. Yes, the old ways were violent and filled with bloodshed, but homage and respect had to be shown to the gods. The deaths of a few would save the lives of billions. It was an easy decision to make.
