An Aberrant Mind by Ken MacGregor

AnAberrantMind_KenMacGregor_FrontCoverPromoAn Aberrant Mind
Ken MacGregor

ABERRANT is defined as unusual, abnormal or different. The stories in this book not only differ from most of what you read, but also wildly from each other. A retired school teacher takes on an elder god and his minion; a werewolf picks fights with sea creatures; a neighbor’s lawn may be eating people. Twenty-two stories: scary, funny, weird and different.

In these pages, you will find darkness and fear, revulsion and terror. Mixed with it, however is quite a bit of humor. Sometimes both happen at the same time. So, open it up, join Jim as he fights off zombies with a potato cannon; witness the bloodbath reunion of the first man and his homicidal son; enjoy the monsters, the demons and the deranged.

A word of warning, though: you may never eat a bagel with lox again.

The Coven
Angie Gallow

TheCoven_AngieGallowAfter a gruesome betrayal, vampire Sebastien Vilmont is flung into a whirlwind cat and mouse game when his traveling party is ambushed by an opposing group of bloodthirsty vampires. Maurice, the leader of Sebastien’s coven, makes the decision to not only wage war against the opposing vampire clan, but a clerical organization known as The Diocese Club who wishes to exterminate all vampire-kind.

Trying desperately to protect the secrecy of their coven’s location below the streets of Whitechapel, London, Sebastien finds himself at odds with Maurice in his desire to not engage in all-out war with the renegade Catholic faction. At the same time, he must also battle the other vampire coven to guard their anonymity from humans. In doing so, Sebastien is forced into choices and alliances he might not otherwise have made.

Set in the tone of Victorian England, The Coven is a thrilling and horrific journey through the seedier workings of the vampire underworld, and pious ideology of The Diocese Club.

Not Another Messiah
Aspen deLaineyNotAnotherMessiah_AspendeLainey_cover

All men are created equal, or so it is said…

In a Mental Asylum that has earned infamy for its successful governing of patients suffering from a Messiah Complex, what happens when a ward of twenty-one prophets is introduced to a twenty-second? How do prophets worship what they believe to be a Messiah in their midst? Do they treat him with distance, trepidation, reverence, or perhaps adoration? Or do the men who speak directly to their own gods want more than a life of confinement as a reward for their blessing?

Is it not also said, “He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood lives in me, and I in him.”
