Overview

Prior to his final days as the eccentic leader of the Pagan Resistance in Occupied France (as featured in Accursed), Georges Steil led a colourful life which has been explored further in several novellas and continues in The Hydra Effect.

With the guns still warm from the death throes of World War I, with the world in the grip of the Spanish Influenza pandemic, a nihilistic cult seizes an opportunity to unleash a parasitic demon upon mankind. A military hospital is at the centre of the storm which sees a battle of wits between a new nurse and an old patient for the future of the hospital, a small French town and, ultimately, the world.

This story is also included in the collection 'Cults, Curses & Cryptids'.

Meet the Author

I'm a UK based self-published author specialising in historical paranormal fiction, with most of my stories linked in some way. I work in an office during the day and write when I can, which seems to be less and less these days, unfortunately. I’ve been writing for quite a few years now and the books that I am most proud of writing are my debut novel, Accursed, and the sequels, Underbelly and Eidolon. This series features a novice spiritualist and GI, James Grey, as the protagonist, and explores occultism during World War II and through to the Cold War. I’ve always been interested in history and find the ‘40s and ‘50s a fascinating period of conflict, paranoia and suspicion, and that’s without incorporating the supernatural element. My great-grandmother was a practising medium who people travelled to see, and while she never took to the stage or reached the dizzy heights that James Grey achieves, their abilities are the same. The gift has not reached my generation (or at least not yet). While I can remember her, I can’t say for certain how gifted she was, though I have heard a lot of stories about her over the years which may have subconsciously manifested in this trilogy. My works vary greatly in length, from short stories and novellas to mammoth books - Eidolon has a word count of almost 530,000. More information about my books can be found at my website.
