Shreya’s Story: Part Two

We left that same night, creeping out despite the torches surrounding our home. Why they didn’t immediately make it our funeral pyre, I’ll never know. Maybe they wanted to give us a chance to show that we were still human. That was something we were unable to do for them. Our quintet stood watching the […]

Shreya’s Story: Part One

According to The Vampire Encyclopedia by Matthew Bunson, a rakhas (or, more formally, rakshasa) is tinkling-bell-clad, blue-throated, blood-stained creature with matted hair and five feet. One of the powerful vampires of India. I can tell you from experience that this is an exaggeration.  It’s like playing that game—Chinese Whispers, is it?—where information becomes more muddled […]

Author Interview: H.M. Holten

Please tell us a little about yourself. Thank you for inviting me, S.L. I’m happy to get this opportunity to talk about myself and my writing.  Perhaps I should start at the beginning.

Author Interview: L.L. Thomsen

Please tell us a little about yourself. I am originally from Denmark but currently live with my hubby and two kids (incl. 1 cat and a dog) in the back-of-beyond near the Sherwood Forrest, U.K.  I began my writing journey when I was called by the ‘muse-who-must-be-obeyed’ after the birth of our first child, but […]

Author Interview: Mandy White

Please tell us a little about yourself. I am a Canadian writer from Vancouver Island, British Columbia. I live on a lake and enjoy the outdoors. What do you write (genre, length)?  I write speculative fiction. Most of it falls under the horror genre, but some is just plain weird. I’m a big fan of […]

Author Interview: Jay Veloso Batista

Please tell us a little about yourself. My name is Jay Veloso Batista, and yes, the middle name is important to avoid brand confusion with the wrestler! ☺ I live in Ocean View, Delaware, on a lake house with my gardens, only a few miles from the Atlantic Ocean, and 2 hours from Washington, DC […]

We Start at the End

“Papa had been a good man,” Ava Bähr whispered to herself. The photos hit her like a punch to the stomach, stealing her air, making her reel. Rays of sunlight illuminated the motes of dust floating in her mother’s attic as memories—beautiful memories—played in front of her: days spent rowing on the lake with her […]

Author Interview: Katherine Gunnoe

Please tell us a little about yourself. I am a nearly thirty college graduate working a full-time job that has absolutely zero to do with my degree (it pays well). I write part-time during most evenings when I am not playing or DMing Dungeons and Dragons. It’s one of the few things that keeps me […]
