I’ll See You In Hell

by Damon Young

“I’ll see you in Hell” – to most, it’s just a spiteful throwaway line spit from the lips of condemned men into the faces of their executioners before they meet their end. But for these two men, professional killers with a bitter personal rivalry, it’s more than just a promise. It’s a covenant born in blood that will take their feud well beyond the grave, into the deepest, darkest pits of the infernal afterlife. And even an assassin who thinks he’s seen it all is not ready for what awaits him below.

The Lord of Bones: A Horror Novel

by C. J. Faust

That feeling you’re not alone…
That chill at your spine…
That weight, like a stack of bricks on your brow, and it’s hard to breathe…
–That’s him. That’s how it begins. Then he drags you straight to Hell.

For working mother, Camille, it began nine days ago when her son, Christian, woke up screaming. Now every night is worse, darker than the one before. Now something terrible lives in Christian’s room, or else her eight-year-old is losing his mind. But that would mean a padded room for mother and son, because she’s starting to feel it too. Last time she could almost see what he saw. She could almost hear it crooning, hissing, rattling in the dark. And every fiber is telling her that something evil wants her son.

Affluent university student, David, knows how slippery the slope that slides away from sanity can be. The horror began for him nine summers past, with an event that traumatized a boy and shaped a man. Years of shrink time though, and a group of friends so close-knit they seem to know each other’s feelings, proved a fine fix. But now, something horrible is following David. In the halls at school–halls that don’t connect. In the alleys between houses–every house. Something has come to get David Franklin, and it wants those so-close friends of his too.

Spunky, black, and self-assured, Shireen Davis wakes on the morning of Friday, October 7 with a sense of expectancy–an intuition. She will meet someone today and this meeting will change her life. Shireen is a psychic, recognized among “the sighted” as being especially gifted. So, intuitions are not unusual for her. She thinks: Today’s the day, hot damn, I’m meeting Mr. Right! But what waits for Shireen is much more the bells of Hell than the wedding kind. Now these people will be drawn together in a desperate struggle to make sense of the carnage unfolding, and the suffocating darkness–the entity–that surrounds and pursues them. There is a system to damnation, but only if they can unravel the insidious logic will there be any hope of survival.

THE LORD OF BONES IS COMING.
YOU’VE BEEN WARNED.
