Heaven's Burning

God gave Ted Erickson the power to freeze the sinful, so why does his own body keep growing numb?

A prostitute. A dirty bum. They can't survive Ted's growing ability to exhale cold air from the Ninth Circle of Hell. So how can the suicidal teenager next door keep singing?

At first Ted Erickson doesn't understand how or why he can freeze things just by blowing on them. By the time he finishes testing this on the neighborhood cats and dogs, he understands God gave him a mission to clean up the world of sinners.

In Noah's time God cleansed the world of the wicked with water. This time, he chose ice, and Ted as his instrument.

Justin Bates, the heavy metal fan next door who plans to kill himself over his parents' divorce, decides to stop Ted Erickson. If Justin dies trying, at least he goes out a hero, not a wuss.

Heaven's Burning is a horror, dark fantasy, or urban fantasy short story.

It comes with a free bonus: the first 13 chapters of Virgin Blood, a horror thriller novel by the author.

About the Author

Richard Stooker hails from the Mississippi River town of Alton, Illinois, warping him for life.Rich in history, Alton provides a combination of the idyllic Illinois background Ray Bradbury wrote of; the Mississippi River and bluffs of Mark Twain; and a rich, unique history -- often violent.From the Indian legend of the Piasa Bird, to the tallest man who ever lived (Robert Wadlow), to the assassin of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., James Earl Ray.FATE Magazine terms Alton "The most haunted small town in America."Richard's childhood home stands close to the route where Union wagons once carried the corpses of Confederate prisoners who died of smallpox. At 8 years old, he first hears of James Earl Ray, (who later assassinates Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.) Ray robs a grocery story owned by the grandparents of close neighbors and friends.In 1974 a still-unknown murderer abducts one of Richard's friends from a record store and kills him. Several years later, the father of other childhood friends goes on a jealousy-inspired, mass murder spree, killing three people -- including Richard's high school class president -- before committing suicide.Richard's over 30 years for a social service government agency gives him a broad background of dealing with both the worst and best people in modern society.When he writes, Richard realizes the horror and joy of every day life inspire dark fantasy stories.
