Dominick Adessi is no stranger to pain. Scarred both physically and emotionally, he does what comes naturally as an athlete. He runs.
But what happens when running leads to a world beyond our own? Dominick finds himself swept into the realm of Ollinea, an ancient plane where legends are more than mere myth.
A place of monsters and magic. Spirits and scars.
Ollinea is marred by the rivalry between the Meztis, a blended race of Native American and European settlers lost to the stars, and the Stonecoats, a tribe of hard husks and fangs.
The sun is missing and the moon brings blood.
Dominick should be in high school, not in Ollinea. He has survived terrible things, but this place may leave a wound that can never be healed. Can Dominick face down his demons and stand with the Meztis, or will he run?
When Tom Cameron ventures to Blackwater Pharmacy seeking the only thing that will give him solace, he finds himself thrust into unimaginable horrors, caught between the sight of the spirit and the filter of flesh.
As he fights to figure out which is his true reality, forces led by the unholiest of faiths close in. Can Tom save himself from the horrible atrocities that haunt him, or will he become another victim of the demonic god’s faithful congregation?
Blackwater Pharmacy explores the conflict in the abuse of power. Power from the state, power from the church, and power from the medical community. In many ways we are subject to these authorities regardless of consent and have must trust their intentions with our lives. To have that trust exploited would lead to hellish consequences.
In this short story, spiritual successor to the Silent Hill series, we experience first hand the horrors of malpractice. The pharmacy is closed on Sunday and now we know why.
A magical anthology of stories surrounding children and their unsettling disappearances.
The line between fairy tale and horror has always existed. Both explore the visceral consequences for cautionary lessons. However, it is not my intention to appeal to the carnal fear, but the subconscious speculation. Throughout this series you will be presented with stories, often with subtle and familiar beauties, that appear to be magical. Of course, it always begins with the hope that something mystical may just be leading to something even better. Sometimes we don’t know where that magic leads, and that is the gift of this anthology…
The wonder. The mystery. The suspense.
