Screams the Machine

by Sam Mortimer

ScreamsTheMachine_SamMortimer_FrontCover_FullSize.png

Cash carries a disease; one that’s already killed a large majority of the population and something needs to be done. To stop the crisis from escalating, The Solution (a worldwide organization) is formed and rises to great power. They monitor people’s dreams and shape reality to fit their own wants and needs. In an effort to control existence itself, The Solution is searching for what they believe to be the ultimate tool; a person with the ability to master a deep connection with the mysterious, pervasive energy known only as The Ultimate Reality.

Watching her neighborhood decay, her friends and family perish, Elizabeth Reznik needs to find meaning in her life. She discovers her existence is more meaningful than she could ever have imagined. Operatives of The Solution seek her out, take her from her home and perform brutal experiments on her. Their conclusion? Elizabeth is the one they have been searching for; she is the key to gaining complete power.

The stratagem of The Solution is single minded – own the resources and you own the people. And the last resource available is free will. They will own your thoughts, they will orchestrate your dreams; they will dine on your fears. But there is always a cog in the machine… or in this case, a scream.

TheCalling_BrentAbell_FrontCover.png

Carl Volker has a problem. After waking one morning with a hangover to find his wife gone, he notices a crow stalking around his yard.  As days go by with no word from his wife, more and more crows gather.

Frank Hill is sheriff in the seemingly pleasant town of White Creek. Up until recently, his job has been fairly mundane but after a recent spree of murders, bodies are beginning to pile up and Frank has no clue as to who the killer may be.

White Creek has kept its secrets hidden well over the years but the sins of its past are coming to light; the town harbors an evil and the bindings that keep it in check are beginning to unravel.

As Frank and Carl’s friendship is tested and their destinies are revealed, the dead accumulate while the crows watch and The Calling begins!

The Remington, by #author Alex Woolf @RealAlexWoolf

The Remington

Alex Woolf

AlexWoolf_TheRemington_Final.png

Howard Protheroe leads the dullest existence imaginable. Literally nothing ever happens to him. Then one day, his life changes when he meets fun-loving, talkative Evie Nickelbite. Howard and Evie feel an instant connection. But something doesn’t seem quite right. It’s almost as if their lives are being controlled by an outside force.

At around the same time, in an apparently unrelated incident, would-be writer George W. Durant decides to purchase a typewriter, an 1878 Remington.

As Howard and Evie’s lives become increasingly action-packed and fraught with danger, they start to feel like characters in badly written novel. What is going on, and what does it have to do with George’s Remington?

By turns surreal, funny and romantic, The Remington navigates the mysterious terrain between the worlds of fiction and real life and asks if love can ever bridge the divide.

Phrenic Press, an imprint of Sirens Call Publications,  is pleased to announce the release of its latest short story

Marrow
by Jon Olson

Marrow_JonOlson_cover_Final

There’s a reason no one ever harvested the trees off logging road number 17.

For generations, a creature has hidden deep in the woods of Nova Scotia. Those who knew of its legend feared it, and prayed it would never see the light of day. Ignoring the warnings, Tony Barrymore – of Triple L Lumber Company – cut deeper into the forest than any man should. The price? Unearthing a terror he couldn’t have imagined even if all the stories were true…
