Editorial Reviews

Long and Short Reviews May 2013 - Astilbe Long and Short Review
“Death isn’t the end, it’s the beginning. Whether that new start will be beautiful or horrifying is something the characters in this tale have more control over than they might think.
Blue Lights in a Jar was so engaging I inhaled it in one sitting. This is the kind of story that’s impossible to walk away from without knowing how it ends and I highly recommend it for anyone who loves cross-genre adventures.” 4.5 Stars! Astilbe, Long and Short Reviews

Meet the Author

Brick Marlin has been writing since he was a child. From an early age he was exposed to older, original horror movies. The great ones that have made a mark in history. He also tackled reading the likes of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ray Bradbury, Kurt Vonnegut, Dean Koontz, Charles Dickens, Harper Lee, H.G. Wells, W. W. Jacobs, etc. Thus, he decided to engage himself and write horror and dark fantasy, scaring readers such as his parents, his friends, a handful of neighbors, and even leaving a few school teachers scratching their heads wondering if the boy should be committed or not with his gruesome tales of terror. Short story ideas continued to visit. A book idea or two sometimes stopped by for a sit. In 2007 he decided to take a more professional approach with his work. Hence, as a member of the Horror Writers Association, already having five books published by small presses with one more in the works coming soon, nearly twenty-five short stories published, adding to the few anthologies and collaborations with other authors, Brick Marlin trudges onward, hoping to achieve more creations, living in the minds of his characters making decisions such as whether to turn the knob and enter through the Red Door, or perhaps try and take a chance at the Blue Door, the one that is already ajar, a bony finger beckoning the next visitor.

    The Clan of the Free

    The Clan of the Free: The History of HorseClan
    Written by Braveheart

    Chapter Eleven:
    The death of Mysticfeather was a harsh blow to everyone, and none of the HorseClan warriors were yet sure exactly HOW the medicine cat had died.
    "I j-just came in and h-he w-was d-d-dead!" Cloudkit wailed, burrying her nose in Daysnight's creamy fur. The queen wrapped her fluffy tail protectively around her kits, sadness flickering in her blue-green eyes.
    Mysticfeather's limp body lay still in the center of the clearing, unmoving a cold. Silver stood silently, not speaking a word. Pain pierced his heart, and he wondered if this was HIS fault.
    Ever since I came here, nothing has happened except for ill omens! the black and silver tom thought sadly. Swankit was killed by a fox, Fawnstep was nearly killed by the same fox, and now Mysticfeather...
    "HorseClan will grieve for the loss of their medicine cat," Lilywolf said sadly, a tear falling from her ice blue eyes. Goldenstripe stood beside her, staring unblinkly at the light gray tom's body.
    "May your spirit rest in the stars until the ends of all days," Daysnight meowed quietly, staring up at the now starry night sky. Silverpelt sparkled coldly back at the grieving cats, as though taunting them.
    "StarClan wants nothing except pain for me," a dull voice suddenly said, and the Clan looked up to see Sunnystar, looking more frail than ever. Every one of her ribs were visable beneath her thin golden pelt, and her amber eyes gleamed dully.
    "StarClan wants HorseClan to die," she spat, her tail lashing back and fourth. "They relish our suffering!"
    "How can you, of all cats, say that?" Whitefoot hissed suddenly, her dove-gray pelt bristling and blue eyes flashing dangerously. "You're our LEADER for StarClan's sake! We need your support more than anything else right now!"
    "Why should it matter?" Sunnystar retorted, sounding defeated as she turned around to limp back to her den. "Even if it isn't StarClan's wish for us to die, they are doing nothing to save us. Face the truth—HorseClan can't survive."
    With that, she disapeared into her den, and the last Silver saw of her was a white tail-tip dragging in the dust.
    "Is it true?" Snowkit whispered, breaking the uneasy silence, her amber eyes filled with fear.
    "Is HorseClan gonna die?" Owlkit added sadly, staring up at her adopted mother with wide eyes.
    "Of course not!" Lilywolf meowed, her voice sounding fierce. "HorseClan WILL survive! We've had some problems, that's sure. But despite the troubles, we shall remain STRONG! We will SURVIVE! And you will live to see in returned to it's former glory, one day, my friends," the light gray tabby shecat said, now addressing the rest of the Clan.
    "Because we are the Clan of the free!" Lilywolf yowled, her voice echoing through the silent clearing.
    The cats of HorseClan began to take up the cry, yowling, "HorseClan! HorseClan! HorseClan!"
    When the cheering had dwindled, Lilywolf smiled faintly, and got to her paws. "There is a ceremony I need to preform, that is long overdue. It is time to name some new apprentices—and warriors—and strenghten our Clan again, with their help."
    The light gray tabby shecat bounded over to the High Log, a dark shadow in the night. Her voice clear and loud, the deputy called out, "Let all the cats of HorseClan old enough to catch their own prey gather here beneath the High Log for a Clan meeting!"
