Excerpt :
Nathan rode the top of the eighteen-wheeler like a surfer rides a wave. It was going at least eighty and the wind threatened to rip him off the cab. He aimed the shotgun. He knew he had one armor piercing shell in the chamber, but he didn’t know if there were any in the magazine. So, if he wanted to get out of this alive, he’d better make the shot count.
The moment he pulled the trigger, the truck encountered a bump; for a brief moment, he suffered the pain of disappointment of a spoiled shot. But in the darkness, Nathan saw sparks and heard the clink of metal impacting metal. Fire spread rapidly across the hood of the pursuing car and it became a rolling ball of fire. It suddenly veered off the road and came to a halt. The glow of the flames highlighted the Wilkerson brothers as they bailed out and high tailed it away from the inferno. A second later, BOOM!
Goddamn! It was just like in one of those high budget Hollywood movies! A big ball of orange fire rose up as pieces of shattered metal scattered through the air. A small shard whizzed by and nicked the lobe of his ear in its passing. He felt the sting. Warm blood trickled down his neck. He was about to jump through the roof hatch to the safely of the inside of the cab until he saw the obstacle in the middle of the road. He braced himself for the impact.
This day had been a living nightmare right from the start.

The Agony of After (The Bones of the Earth)

by Scott Hale

The Agony of After
by
Scott Hale

is an anthology of four interconnected horror novellas that take place after The Blood of Before and before The Bones of the Earth series.

A social worker arrives at a low-income housing complex for a routine intake, only to discover it will be anything but, as he is given a firsthand account of his client’s own form of therapy for the world itself.

A group of twenty-somethings who take pride in their ability to label and judge others discover their LGBTQIA community has become the target of a series of hate crimes by a culprit who appears motivated by the writings of their peerless leader.

The community of Bedlam is shaken as four children from four separate families are abducted on the same day, at the same time, in the same neighborhood, without any witnesses or apparent motives.

A wanderer with a memory longer than his lifespan drifts across the Trauma-wracked wasteland of Earth, finding companionship and purpose where he can, until he is taken in against his will by a creature with nefarious plans for the distant future.

Horrific, satirical, and necessarily uncomfortable, The Agony of After is a realization of what followed the events of The Blood of Before, and a pivotal piece of the secret history of The Bones of the Earth series.

I eased my coat off my shoulders. His eyes glowed jaw tightening to the unveil of the short red dress that clung to my mocha chocolate skin from the waist up, my breasts appeared swollen curves above my toned belly. The bottom end was laced with loose flares suitable for concealed weapons. I tied my straight dark hair high in a ponytail and wore bright, scarlet red lipstick to go with the dress. “You lookâ?¦fabulous, very fabulous. I might be the envy of every man in this restaurant tonight.” He said ardently.
“You’re too much sometimes, Fredrick.”
I hooked the chain handle of my black purse over my shoulder.
“Fredrick, huh, so we’re finally on a first name basis, Alice?”
I simpered nodding my head modestly.
“It’s a habit of mine. I’m generally use to professional conduct.”
“I understand I’ve shook hands some stiff rivals. I once wondered if they came with batteries and a remote.” I released a chuckle, a genuine, non-forced chuckle. My god, normal and outgoing, even humorous, the popular cliché for his type was antisocial loner missing a personality.

THE DEVILS PIT: AT HANGIN’ JUNCTION

by Paul Skelton

This is a very disturbing, perverse and genuinely demented short horror story, in which pre-concieved notions of church, figures in authority and supposedly self serving types are thrown into the pits of hell. An off-roading site that hides a criminal secret, breast milk drinking vampires and a recording studio beneath a town diner are woven into a tale based at the mythical town of “Hanging Junction” as created by author Jason Greenfield. Skeltons twisted tale is as vile and irreverent as you would expect from a man of hideous taste and in possession of a warped mind. I would ban it quite frankly . . . But, please . . if you have the stomach; GIVE IT A TRY I DARE YOU!
