The Edge of Death

by Drac Von Stoller

It was the summer of ’72 and Jason Helsing was born into a world that was supposed to embrace him, but only left him alone on this big planet to figure things out on his own.

After his birth Jason was whisked off to foster home after foster home without knowing what it was like to be brought up in a happy home. Jason had been teased all through his school years about how slow he was, and couldn’t keep up with the other classmates on any subject he took. Jason didn’t have nice clothes like other students had. All he wanted was to be accepted, but all he got was heartaches

As the years peeled away, and Jason became more resentful towards his classmates, and his foster parents, the anger that was bottled up inside was about to explode, and the classmates that tormented him all those years were about to have their innocence destroyed by the hands of someone that just wanted to be loved, but instead got his heart crushed.

One night when Jason was lying in his bed trying to get a good night’s sleep he started having flashbacks when one of his foster father’s was choking his wife, but didn’t kill her. When Jason entered their room he asked what was going on and his foster father said, “Come in boy and watch a real man in action.”

All Jason wanted to do was run and hide, but his foster father grabbed him by the arm, and told him to place his hands around her neck, and squeeze. Jason was scared, but knew if he didn’t do what his foster father told him to do, he would be beaten.

So as her tears poured out from her sad frightened eyes, Jason turned his head, and squeezed, and squeezed. Then his foster father said, “Don’t be scared it’s only a game, turn and look at her.”

She removed Jason’s hands from her neck and laughed. Jason said, “I don’t find that very funny.”

His foster father slapped him in the back of the head and said, “Why don’t you go play?”

Jason ran out of the room confused at what just happened.

Fright Feast I

by Brian James Lane

You find yourself wandering down a cobblestone street in an unknown village, lined with shops of all sorts and styles. It would be quaint and inviting were it not for the fact that there are no people on the walkway and a storm brews on the horizon. Nobody is outside, and you wonder why. Perhaps the threatening weather is keeping everyone inside. A lonely wind moans forebodingly, blowing newspaper and other debris through the empty streets as the storm approaches. This is a strange place, you think. Why would you come here? In fact, you can’t even recall how you arrived or exactly where “here” is. Then it hits you – this must be a dream.

In the dream, you’ve noticed that you’re hungry and must address that incessant grumbling in your stomach. Someplace that serves food. Ahh, then you notice it. A neon sign in the window of a shop. It flashes on an off in a deep ruby red, illuminating the sidewalk in front of the shop in a rhythmic fashion. It beckons you. “Pizza”, the sign proclaims. Lunch, you consider.

You stumble into the bizarre pizza parlor, grateful to be out of the coming storm. The interior is dark and creepy in both atmosphere and clientele. Here, there are people, but not the sort you would want to associate with under normal circumstance. This is anything but normal. You try not to make eye contact with anyone, for fear of instigating any hostility. Instead, you focus on the surroundings with your head down and decide where to go. Some of the patrons aren’t even human. To your left, you notice what can only be described as a monster devouring a slice of pizza crawling with maggots. To your right, a one-eyed waitress serves a pie swarming with cockroaches to a man whose head smiles from the seat next to his body. All around you are inconceivable and horrific sites. This isn’t a dream, you realize, it’s a nightmare!

You see an empty place in the corner; it offers relative isolation from the other patrons. A plastic checkerboard tablecloth covers a round table, with an old Chianti bottle serving as a candlestick holder. From it, wax coats the glass surface in frozen rippling waves. You take a seat in an old aluminum and vinyl covered chair. The soft glow of the candlelight reveals eerie lunch specials. Thirteen toppings of terror come standard with the cheesy delight, including stories of:

– A memorial statue of a Civil War Colonel comes alive to seek revenge

– A baby is born with a strange disfigurement resembling a wolf each time the Canis Major constellation rises in the night sky

– An ancient order of monks guards a secret, which must be fed live prey.

It looks like your meal is going to be a feast of frights. You shiver as you reluctantly give the one-eyed waitress your order. “Bon Appétit!” she says with a mouthful of razor sharp teeth.

The Forest: Part One

by Lou Yardley

If you go down to the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise.

Georgia is spending a summer’s afternoon looking after her younger brother, Oliver. At twelve-years-old, she believes that she is an adult. Or, almost an adult at the very least. But, despite her desire to grow up, Oliver convinces her to play their favourite game. A game called the Dragon Game.

The game takes a bizarre twist when something calls them from the forest that backs onto their garden. Daring each other, the siblings enter forest only to find that it’s not a normal forest at all. This is a place where dreams and nightmares are made.

A place they may never escapeâ?¦

Interview with the Author:

Q – What’s the idea behind “The Forest”?

I recently decided to write and publish a series of short stories and novellas called “Horror Bites”. “The Forest” (Parts One and Two) is part of this collection. The idea is that these are stories that can be devoured in one sitting.

As for the story itself, I wanted to write a sometimes creepy, sometimes gory, but always entertaining story of childhood innocence combined with things that go bump in the night.

Q – Will I have to wait ages for Part Two?

No, not at all! Part Two will be unleashed almost immediately.

Q – Why should readers give these stories a go?

I hope that “The Forest” will mesmerise and entertain, as well conjure memories of movies from the 80s. It’s a twisted fairytale. Readers can enjoy this story in one sitting with their favourite beverage (I’m rather partial to a cup of coffee).
