There are creatures lurking in our world. Obscure creatures long relegated to myth and legend. They have been sighted by a lucky-or unlucky-few, some have even been photographed, but their existence remains unproven and unrecognized by the scientific community.

These creatures, long thought gone, have somehow survived; creatures from our nightmares haunting the dark places. They swim in our lakes and bays, they soar the night skies, they hunt in the woods. Some are from our past, some from other worlds, and others have always been with us-watching us, fearing us, hunting us.

These are the cryptids, and Systema Paradoxa tells their tales.


In an ongoing effort to thwart the villainous Order of the Sanguine Hand, Agents Lydia Wainwright and Keilah Holliday of Her Majesty's Bureau of Preternatural Affairs journey to the remote Congo to investigate a potential threat of unknown origin, identified only as Crimson Whisper.

Embarking upon the airship, the Grand Enterprise, they are soon beset by strange encounters, including a most unexpected attack resulting in more questions... and three corpses, fortunately not their own.

Will they be in time to foil the Order's nefarious plans? Or even escape the jungle alive? Brace yourself for another harrowing Wainwright and Holliday Adventure.

About the Author

Ken Schrader writes Science Fiction, Fantasy, Weird Westerns, and anything else he can get away with. He's a shameless Geek, a fan of the Oxford comma, and he makes housing decisions based upon the space available for bookshelves. His short fiction appears in The Weird Wild West, Predators in Petticoats, Trials, Chasing the Light, and Grease Monkeys. Crimson Whisper is his first standalone title.He sings out loud when there's no one around, enjoys a good grilling session, and loves a powerful drum beat. He can also procrastinate so well you'd think it was a superpower.He lives in Michigan, and despite the seasonal allergies, he always enjoys mowing the lawn.
Although Jason Whitley has worn many creative hats, he is at heart a traditional illustrator and painter. With author James Chambers, Jason collaborates and illustrates the sometimes-prose, sometimes graphic novel, The Midnight Hour, which is being collected into one volume by eSpec Books. His and Scott Eckelaert's newspaper comic strip, Sea Urchins, has been collected into four volumes. Along with Box Mountain's Cryptid series, Jason is working on a crime noir graphic novel. His portrait of Charlotte Hawkins Brown is on display in the Charlotte Hawkins Brown Museum.
