A Flicker Of Light And Hope

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Oct 18, 2013

...in conflict...

Our children living

In this shadow, never knowing

The love of freedom

The tranquility of silence

Reposed in calmness...

Clasped instead in the iron-cast

Turmoil, nightmares that

Flare to light the night

The horrors that fill their

Sunlit days and moonlit nights...

Yet their hope survives

Easing the anguish

One small flame living

In their hearts and souls

Refusing to be surrendered...

Never to be lost

Not to be sold

Nor traded for unrest

The Burlap Man

By LVera, published on Apr 18, 2012

My body was made of Hessian,Burlap to many and cloth to few.I worried as the moths woke me,Carrying a piece of me in their mouths as food.I could hear them nibbling, biting, devouring me.I swung my arms, and they attached to them too.Every effort failed and contributed to my pain.This morning, as I looked in my broken mirror, I figured out a plan.My face was no longer the one I loved.It was battered, full of stuffing and full of hate.I wanted them to die, I wanted them to glow.So as they fluttered around my body, attached by their mouths,I lit a match.But their fluttering extinguished the tiny... (more)

Introducing the Dracula Hearts Series by A.J. Gallant

By Wrp68, published on Apr 6, 2012

Dracula: Hearts of Stone

A tale of magic, romance and fangs. This adventure is sprinkled with humor.

This MIGHT be a little like Dracula if written by J. K. Rowling. It’s a place where magic and vampires interweave for an exciting adventure.

We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a new novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula:... (more)

The Children That Watch Us

By LVera, published on Oct 18, 2011

His grandfather was crazy. Corey knew it at a young age, hell, the whole street knew it. The last time he saw his grandfather was the day the old man stood on his front porch and yelling at him. He was playing with the neighbor kids as his father talked to the people across the street. They were complaining again about his grandfather. Corey stood behind his grandfather's car that was parked outside his fence as the gunshots rang out through the streets. Corey could see the impact points on the gravel, tearing like an invisible beast into the blacktop.

The kids scattered back home and... (more)

Book Review: The Fright Factory by William Potter

By Wrp68, published on Sep 24, 2011

...to keep his captives performing. The Fright Factory touches our most primary emotion: fear, and our primitive response to it: fight or flight.

Equal parts thriller and horror, The Fright Factory delivers the goods to those who enjoy fast paced suspense on the chilling side.

The Heart of Horror

By Anastasia , published on Jul 10, 2011

Have you ever read Joseph Conrad’s novella Heart of Darkness? If you have you will recall the final words of Kurtz in his moment of epiphany shortly before his death - The horror! The horror!

Let me take you to another heart of darkness; let me take you to China in the middle of the twentieth century, to the time of the so-called Great Leap Forward. Last year I read Mao’s Great Famine by Frank Dikötter, a study of that grim period in the country’s history which has now deservedly been awarded the 2011 Samuel Johnson Prize for non-fiction, one of Britain’s most prestigious literary... (more)

Vaughn Belak- The Man Who Changed The Face of Horror

By Casandra Kennedy, published on Nov 17, 2009

Belak's new spin on classic horror, monsters and all things dark has garnered him quite the cult following over the last decade! From the most obscure and seldom mentioned creatures of the night to traditionally famous monsters, Belak takes great care revamping reinventing and recreating them with his sui generis technique.

Like many artist's, he does not classify his art in any one style however unlike most artists, his work simply cannot be classified. His paintings have a dash of surrealism in that they appear to be something one would see in a dreamlike state, yet also have hints... (more)
