Following the deaths of her mother and beloved aunt, Kate Kavanagh inherits the family homestead in the Irish enclave of Three Oaks, Connecticut; but the house has changed since she visited a year ago--no more windows on the first floor and gaslights and a wood burning stove in place of the modern appliances. It also appears to be haunted. And that's just for starters. Once she moves into the house, Kate herself begins a gradual but terrifying biological transformation that is part of her inheritance, too; though not mentioned in the Will. With the help of a Rottweiler that's more human than animal, a new friend whose farm stand is only open dusk to dawn, and the "Rat Boys," Kate will get some answers or die trying.

Verses from a deeply darkened mind

Verses mediumVERSES FROM A DEEPLY DARKENED MIND

Yes, “Deeply Darkened.” These are the words which reside within the depths of a mind haunted. A haunting, of neither the ethereal persuasion, nor the ghosts of a hidden and unrelenting past. Here before you, etched upon parchment, are verse written from a mind haunted by “words.” This tome is unlike your typical, modern day collection of “Horror Poetry.” It is rather an assemblage of “Horror Stories” written in poetic form. Written to tease that final nerve, before the fatal break. Ah, yes. Here, this “DEEPLY DARKENED MIND,” who with pen in hand (black ink a must), has taken meter and rhyme to send a heartbeat racing in terror from one page to the next. “DEEPLY DARKENED,” is my mind, my world; and I offer you entrance. That’s right… Turn my page… Crack my spine… I want you to cringe, squirm, look over your shoulder into the shadows and dare you to shut out the lights once this cover has been closed. This “DEEPLY DARKENED MIND,” bids you “welcome.” Yes, join me… in my darkness…

Soal Man

soalman mediumThe justice system in the city of Sachter is broken. Teenage punks with big guns, small minds and no ambition roam about the darkest neighborhoods in search of prey. They fuel their anger with codeine-soaked joints and cheap liquor and finance their habits through theft, extortion, arson, and murder. Enter Romeo Soal, a loner who has vowed to give his ravaged city a jump-start. Working just outside the crumbling edges of the legal system, Soal takes on child molesters, dope dealers, deadbeat dads, and repeat offenders who have slithered through the cracks in the courthouse steps. Soal does his best to help those in need, but when P. Anderton Hillis, a wealthy businessman, asks him to murder his wife, Soal flatly refuses. Hillis is not accustomed to being told “no,” and is determined to do anything to get his way, including kidnapping Soal’s best friend, Nick Finch. While trying to rescue Finch, Soal must endure beatings, avoid police and stop an arsonist who has turned pyromania into an art form, all while struggling with his infatuation for Hillis’ personal secretary.

The Vampires of Drea small Verses small soalman small smalldualcover  

The Vampires of Dreach Fola

The Vampires of Drea medium'The Vampire genre of ‘speculative fiction’ was long overdue for a new vision, a new perspective, and a real kick in the ass. Few vampire tales choose to portray the creatures as powerful, savage, and complicated, despite their obvious attributes, which declare them as such. Many writers have made vampires powerful, but mostly to comic, romantic, or just plain ‘fan boy’ effect. Fewer writers have depicted them as savage beasts. Then, writers who choose to portray these creatures as calculated or aristocratic always lose the two traits of power and savagery. In Dracula, the brutality was primarily implied until the latter scenes, and even then, we could imagine far more than was shown. In this way Bram Stoker set the ‘vampire template’ to perfection, and artists have been trying and failing to match it ever since. That being said, when I read The Vampires of Dreach Fola, I got that certain feeling again—the sense that we are dealing with a very powerful and driven, savage aristocracy that exists in a way we cannot understand or experience. Not since Charles Williams, and Stoker before him, and Dante before him, has horror fiction of this depth and caliber been written. Scáth Beorh takes us on a journey many readers will deeply regret, the terror is so debilitating, the escape so narrow. Be warned. This is not reading you should undertake before bedtime... unless, of course, you can outwit your own nightmares.’

Darker Tales from the Den

 Dona Fox - Darker tales from the den

DarkerTalesmediumSeventeen darker tales. Stories of death, ghosts, and wicked delusions. Poisons, secrets, and lovers from the past. Murders by curse, serpents’ fangs, herbs, and flowers. The discovery of crystal bones, the smell of singed gossamer wings, the sound of a wooden puppet dancing in the dark and the touch of a cold hand beneath the grave. Includes the novella "CHRYSTAL BONES AND GOSSAMER WINGS."

"Dona Fox had me with her first story, 'Smoky Martini.' Creepy and atmospheric, it sets the stage for Dark Tales from the Den, her new collection of shorts. My favorites, along with 'Smoky Martini,' were 'Crawlspace'--suitably claustrophobic and disturbing--and the devastating 'Grace at the End.' Fox shows her deft hand for creating atmosphere and mood in these 18 shorts. Very much recommended!-

 Dona Fox

There’s a mean doll, a box full of bones-and newspaper clippings, a bank robbery gone horribly wrong-for almost everyone. Daddy’s last train, and the train Uncle Frank catches again and again, a haunted carousel that sparks up the night, an alien abduction, a meeting with the evil Lilith. Foxes. A girl you wouldn't want to meet in a bar-if you value your ink, a drug of the future with certain finality about it. Many graves dug, barns to die in, and ghosts and more ghosts. Seep into this book.

City of Steam

newavalonNew Avalon

Love and Loss in the City of Steam

New Avalon is a city filled with stories. They stain every brick, and echo in every doorway. The best stories aren't found out where anyone might trip over them, though. The good ones are found down dark alleys and in hidden alcoves, washed up on night time shores and for sale in midnight markets. These are the secret hearts of the City of Steam, and like all the best secrets they fill you up while leaving you wanting more.

Come and take a tour of a place where everyday miracles and personal damnations walk hand-in-hand. A place where the light of modern science burns bright enough to cast shadows you can fall into. Plumb the mysteries of the Grates, and see what horrifying, beautiful secrets linger in the steam-shrouded souk. If you look closely you'll be able to find true love for pennies, only slightly damaged in Love is a Broken Clock. Walk the moonlit streets of Headsman's Wharf, and hear a heartbreaking ghost story that may or may not be true in The Legend of Black Jack Guillotine.

Maybe you'd prefer a flight of fancy? Then listen closely to the story of a maiden voyage of a very different kind in Flight of Icarus. Ten tales of love and loss grace these pages; ten secret stories hidden in quiet niches and saved for the truly curious. Those who will accept no substitute, and who want the real thing.

Be warned, when flowers grow in the City of Steam they may not be quite what you expect.
