About the Author

I have always been fascinated by the things that go bump in the night. Ever since I can remember, I have wondered why popular books and movies focused on the vampire/werewolf hunters instead of the monsters themselves. Sure, there are plenty of books now that follow the journey of a vampire or werewolf, but the protagonist of the book is usually an angst-ridden hero who struggles to overcome his or her evil predisposition.


What about the other side of the coin? What about the vampire who is quite content to feast on humans and revel in immortality? What about the werewolf who rampages through life without a care in the world? Those are the monsters I write about.

If your looking for not so scary monsters and happy endings, go read a freaking fairytale. This book is for TRUE horror lovers,filled with enough gore and unique storylines to keep that little monster inside you satisfied through the night..

I'm still reading this one. I like to read a regular book with little breaks for short stories. I've read three of the short stories so far and I've liked them all. I'm hoping to pick up a few new authors from the book. :)

Some stories were better then others and was a very quick read, but it satisfied my need for something to read on a dark scary night.

A collection of 8 short stories covering a variety of paranormal inventions. Here is my short synopsis: Blackmail by M.T. Murphy – Corporate setting with vampire’s in charge and making all the rules and need you be reminded not to cross them? Something Wrong by S.M. Reine – A story of the actions we take due to hate and of how we delay and may end up regretting it. The Reaver by India Drummond – A creator from another world makes beautiful things from our most personal parts. It tells of how even in another time and world that choosing greed and status over our loved ones will always cause regret. Lux by Anabel Portillo – Frankensteinish story with a larger cast of characters. Very descriptive and intelligently crafted. (p.s. I love the name Lux) Figs by Jeremy C. Shipp - Dark and fatal story of love gone twisted and wrong. Deals and Demons by Samantha Anderson – Good vs. Evil and would you be able to tell the difference between the sides? Which side would you end up on after all was said and done? Periphery People by Sara Reinke – Drunk people talk too much but should you ever believe what they tell you? Maybe you should to save your soul. Spider Bag by M.T. Murphy - Vampires aren’t the only people that exist in our paranormal universe. Did you ever consider that other creatures would disguise themselves as the vampires to get their dirty secrets fulfilled? We all have fears and vices. Book also ends with some amazing artwork. Typically I am put off by short story collections, but I found multiple authors here that I would enjoy following further. Very please with my first read of the year!
