DanDillard_WhatTangledWebsWhat Tangled Webs

“…sufficiently gruesome. Dan Dillard has proven again that his imagination is twisted enough to warrant a place in the horror genre.” 5 Stars

“You will be riveted by some of these scary tales. And thankful they are only stories or are they?” 4 Stars

“…stories that remind me of the 1/2 hour horror shows that I used to watch growing up.” 4 Stars

“Superbly written and thoroughly engrossing, this is a fantastic read and perfectly balanced to send chills up and down your spine.” 5 Stars

Cheating death, cheating time, looking for the easy way out. These things have consequences. Consequences that can be violent and painful.
What Tangled Webs we weave, when first we practice to deceive.
Includes short stories “Deliver Us From Evil”, “The ‘A’ Word”, “What Tangled Webs” and “The Wager.”
Angry tales of horror, betrayal, possession and the Devil himself.

DanDillard_GivingUpTheGhostGiving Up the Ghost

Gerry Sheffield drinks, uses drugs, and treats women like trash. All these things can’t fill up the gaping hole where his soul should be.
His parents are elderly, and Bill and Margo Sheffield have had enough of their son’s irresponsible and sometimes illegal crap. They have decided that the only way to help Gerry…is to haunt him.

This is a novel of paranormal revenge with just enough comedy to dull its harsh, black edge. Gerry is one nasty character with no shame. Sometimes tough love isn’t enough, but as ghosts, maybe Bill and Margo can scare him straight, or worse.

TimothyCHobbs_ThePumpkinSeedThe Pumpkin Seed

The Pumpkin Seed opens in India near the Nepal border in the late 17th century. A commissioned officer of the East India Company is seeking a profitable new trade route into China. Indian bandits of the Thuggie clan attempt to stop this further invasion by the British and release a plague of insects, which carry a unique virus. This organism not only infects humans, it transforms the chemical and physical nature of the host’s body. Longevity, resilience and the need to feed on human blood and flesh make the host an efficient killing machine, especially in regard to the human race.

The novel follows the characters through 17th and 18th century England and India, culminating in present day Austin, Texas. Set in the orphanages of London and in the vile body snatching trade, a host of characters, who are as despicable as their deeds, search for the truth and a cure for their malady.

The Pumpkin Seed takes us through the vices of greed, hate, love and despair and creates a modern novel that puts colonialism in the spotlight and asks difficult questions about this generation’s guilt for the crimes of its ancestors. This novel is a classic vampire tale with a twist, told beautifully from the point of view of the vampire.

TimothyCHobbs_MusicBoxSonataMusic Box Sonata

At the top of a steep cliff, a derelict church serves its congregation of dust, cobwebs, and birds roosting in the rafters. One human occupant lives there hidden in the cellar. He is cursed to never walk in the tortuous sunlight, cursed to roam the woods on the cliff at night in the form of a hideous beast struggling with the violent desire to kill while striving to preserve remnants of his own humanity.

Music Box Sonata is the second story from Once Upon a Time in Texas, a collective series of dark variations of popular fairy tales by Timothy C. Hobbs.

Killers & Demons II: They Return, by A.F. Stewart #horror #author @scribe77

Killers and Demons II: They ReturnAFStewart_K&DII
A.F. Stewart

Evil is back, with a greater appetite for death.

Killers.
Demons.
They lurk forever in the shadows, smile at you in the morning, and haunt your dreams at night. You can’t hide, you can’t run, and there’s no escape. You can only scream when they come for you.

Killers and Demons II: They Return is a collection of thirteen tales, blending short stories and flash fiction, tales where the blood lingers on your tongue or spurts quickly from the swift cut.

The Villainous Roster:

Wade, every parent’s nightmare
Hannah and Mr. Greeley. Who is the victim and who is the villain?
Simon and Zoe, a married couple who are dying to be single again.
Norman and his “cookie” of a wife, Mabel.
Millicent and Jane, a delightful duo you shouldn’t invite to your Regency tea party
Amanda, who literally has a skeleton in her closet
Balthazar, the demon bounty hunter on the hunt once more.
Sarah, a young woman going through some changes and craving new tastes
Emmeline, burned as a witch, now back from the dead for revenge
Gabrielle, a woman haunted by shadows
The Dollmaker, she showers death, and an umbrella won’t help
Nightmare Demons, bent on driving a town insane

And then there’s Alice, a little girl locked in the basement by her Daddy…

Together they form a spine-chilling cadre of predators.
