    The River

    A river runs through AquaClan territory. Stepping stones are found to be protruding from the water, for cats to fish from. Along it grows many herbs, and prey is also plentiful here, from the voles along the bank to the fish that dwell within the water.

    It's Terrorific

    horror n 1: intense and profound fear 2: something that inspires horror; something horrible; 'the painting that others found so beautiful was a horror to him' 3: intense aversion See: repugnance, repulsion, revulsion, short story n. A short piece of prose fiction, having few characters and aiming at unity of effect. Michael Arnzen is master craftsman of the horror short story. Mixing elements of gore, humor, and horror, sometimes within the same sentence, he shocks and entertains with every bite. If you need proof just read a few stories in. Most of the stories here can be read in one paranoid insomnia driven night. He uses words like a scalpel, cutting open your head and dumping a bucket of psycho-babble right into your raw exposed brain. The stories will leave your head throbbing, you'll find yourself thinking of the stories relating to them in new ways weeks even months later. But what really impressed me about 100 jolts is the balance. The blatant to the subtle, the humorous with the terrifying, the short with the long, flowing mercilessly one to another. It all balances out, and it's balance lends it to become an addictive read. You keep saying, just one more, oh just one more, and then it's dawn and you've read the book, and your head is throbbing. And you're not sure if it's with joy or if your brain is trying to escape from your skull. One way or another this book will get you. Howl with the raw dog screaming.
