| The Small Dark Room of the Soul |
by Matthew Pallamary
$0.00, 148 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (2 reviews), #35 in > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Short Stories
There can be no light without darkness.
The sun cannot rise without night preceding it, and the setting sun of the day must inevitably fade to black. If life were all sunshine and roses, there would be no contrast. Perpetual sunshine would be both blinding and devastating. We need the darkness. It is an integral part of the whole.
Part of us.
Horror stories are a reflection of our darker side. In an age of very real terrors like A.I.D.S., cancer, and terrorism, stories that frighten us can perform a useful function by allowing readers to live out and experience fear in a controlled fashion and deal with horror on their own terms. If it gets to be too much, they can always close the book and put it away. Experiencing horror in this way works as an anxiety release because it is a tangible way to deal with and escape the terrors of modern living...
Through the ages, countless spiritual disciplines have urged us to look within ourselves and seek the truth. Part of that truth resides in a small, dark room -- one we are afraid to enter.
If we can only push aside the dark door of fear that holds us at bay and rescue the part of our souls that cringes in the dark, we might come to a better understanding of what makes us tick.
The Small Dark Room of the Soul and Other Stories is a collection of fourteen short horror stories -- and all the monsters are human...
Do you dare peer into the dark mirror of our collective soul?

Praise for WILLIAM GRABOWSKI:
“We've traveled a long road together.... Thanks for your marvelous contributions to the magazine.”
—David B. Silva, editor/publisher of World Fantasy Award-winning The Horror Show magazine
“You're not afraid of hard work, Grabo! And there's much to admire, even love, in Flowers On the Moon.... I think of 'Mystic Balcony' (which has a fabulous line about birds), the truth of 'The Power of Babble' (God forgive you for that pun). The range of [The] 'Dark' and [The] 'Vision.' It's full to the brim with quotables but, more importantly, with life.”
—J.N. Williamson, novelist, anthologist, mentor, winner of HWA's 2003 Lifetime Achievement Award
“I think 'Out Hunting for Teeth' is a brilliant story. You have obviously got the two major capacities: talent, and the ability—willingness—to pour your whole goddamn heart-soul-and-guts into it. Nothing less than masterful.”
—Poppy Z. Brite (now Billy Martin), author of Second Line, Liquor, Lost Souls, Courtney Love: The Real Story and others
“From the opening sentences [of 'Emily'] Grabowski’s words hook you, drawing you in. You are led down a dark, nihilistic path of madness that is uncomfortable yet enthralling. His handling of the protagonist’s suffering is both terrifying and heartbreaking, along with having a realism that hits the mark.”
—Brian Fatah Steele, author of There is Darkness in Every Room, Brutal Starlight and others
For BLACK LIGHT: PERSPECTIVES ON MYSTERIOUS PHENOMENA:
“Wow, great words—you get my work, man!”
—Mark Pellington, director of The Mothman Prophecies, I Melt With You, executive producer of NBC-TV's Blindspot, and iconic MTV music videos for Pearl Jam, U2, Nine Inch Nails and others
“[Black Light] is a heck of a piece of work!”
—George Knapp, multiple Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter, KLAS/CBS-TV
TRACES OF OBLIVION, William Grabowski's collected short fiction (including his novel THE UNTOLD) is populated with darkness, dread and monstrosity . . . and things blacker far than those, spawned in nightmares (and mundane daylight) provoked by the despair and alienation spreading through our fragmented world like thorny vines pulsing with toxins. The short stories, and novel, herein range from 1985 to 2014—literary footprints journeying from Back in the Day to the No-Longer- Twenty-Something years; through a dark stretch of nothingness, right up to Now. The path was never linear . . . occasionally discursive . . . littered with crushed cans and smashed bottles. And music, tracing oblivion through starless nights and sunless days.

by N. Reed
$0.00, 514 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (1 review), #279 in > Literature & Fiction > Horror > Occult
The Glass Planet: Series #5-9. The entire story of the Jacobs family, from the beginning of Professor Antony Jacobs career change. ArchaeoAntropology grips the family and takes them on a journey around the globe. From the forested ancient ruins of Costa Rica to the desert sands of Egypt. The discovery of ancient texts in the desert bring about shocking conflicts and social upheaval and sends this family around the globe. When Gwydion is born, the professor and his autistic grandson become close and the professor shares these ancient stories with him, Gwydion. The next discovery of biblical texts in an ancient jar buried on the banks of the Nile river, sets loose a demon that plagues Gwydion as he is growing up. Or is this an angel sent to take care of and protect the young boy? The secrets are not revealed until the very end, when a being from unknown origins visits and divulges some of these secrets to
Gwydion and his strange little sister. Which threatens the entire globe and all of its inhabitants.`
Using fictional characters, the author takes the reader through a journey of discovery, uncovering the secret Extra-terrestrial origins of the bible and other god centered religions around the world. By combing through the new translations of the Nag Hammadi Library and the Dead Se Scrolls, N. M. Reed through her characters, an autistic boy of dubious breeding, his strange angelic sister, and his grounded rancher wife, and a host of others, find passages and old stories that seem to be the log of experiences of encounters of a third kind: actual contact and instruction from alien visitors. Stories that were the inspiration for the final draft of the bible, but were taken out and literally buried in the sands of time, only to be discovered haplessly by travelers thousands of years later. The progenitors of our civilization were describing aliens encounters, but didn't know how to say that. They just viewed these powerful “star-people” as gods. All of the great religions seemed to have been formed this way. Why else would humanity be so enthralled and have such a devotion and reverence to anything, if it weren't something absolutely amazing and out of this world. So instead of god being an unknowable, unfathomable force to human kind, lurking in the unknown void of heaven or hell, our gods are the blood spirit and intellectual ancestors and genetic makeup of our own selves. And interestingly, this brings us full circle back to the true-believers who are sure that the bible is a literal translation of the word of god. And looking at it as the experiences with the alien progenitors of our modern human race, providing the missing link in our evolution, it just might be so.

| Hawaiian Lei of Shrunken Heads |

HAWAIIAN LEI OF SHRUNKEN HEADS is Katerina Sestakova Novotna’s first fiction book. It is a collection of murder stories that are dark, funny and philosophical at the same time. They all take place in Hawaii, a place known for ethnic and cultural diversity, and they present a few different perspectives on race, religion and other topics. The author, a philosopher by training, is not afraid to touch controversial questions that have puzzled the greatest thinkers in a humorous and nonacademic way. The narrators of her stories are not scholars. They are personalities as diverse as an insane Native Hawaiian murderer, a white racist veteran, a Buddhist student, a Russian prostitute, a mutt dog and many others. Humans are slaughtered as a sacrifice to gods in these stories, so some parts of the book are gruesome and not suitable for more sensitive readers. Yet it is not a horror book in the strict sense.

The novel touches on themes such as the role of women in Victorian culture, sexual conventions, immigration, colonialism, and post-colonialism. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form, and the novel has spawned numerous theatrical, film and television interpretations.

Interview with the Author
QU: So, what makes the Dark Horizon series special?
AN: My mission is to write action led thrillers that hit hard, right from the go. I write what I love to read. My top picks are usually thrillers and mysteries best sellers, and private detective novels. When I pick up a novel, I want to be entertained, that’s a given, but I also want to learn something new. I love telling stories that are on the blurred edge between fact and fiction; whether I’m writing about the world of art crime, the Royal Society, Isaac Newton, Freemasonry, the Knights Templar or the history of London; weaving a contemporary crime thriller within layers of true fact is what gives me a buzz. The function of a best-selling crime novel is to give the reader what they don’t get in their real lives. It’s about escaping the ordinary and entering into a world of the extraordinary. I hope the Dark Horizon trilogy does this in spades. Each book in the series is designed to keep you turning the pages all night long.
QU: Why should readers give these books a try?
AN: Because the Dark Horizon thriller series is an exciting, action-packed adventure. Just read the reviews and see why it has hit the top ten category bestsellers lists on Kindle for Crime Thrillers. Ultimately, readers who enjoy a taut, nail-biting adventure with a plot that twists and turns will love the Dark Horizon trilogy. Come and join Vincent Blake, the damaged hero of the series that reviewers are describing as 'the British Robert Langdon.'

| Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus |
by Mary Shelley, Goodreads

Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus, generally known as Frankenstein, is a novel written by the British author Mary Shelley. The title of the novel refers to a scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who learns how to create life and creates a being in the likeness of man, but larger than average and more powerful. In popular culture, people have tended to refer to the Creature as "Frankenstein", despite this being the name of the scientist. Frankenstein is a novel infused with some elements of the Gothic novel and the Romantic movement. It was also a warning against the "over-reaching" of modern man and the Industrial Revolution, alluded to in the novel's subtitle, The Modern Prometheus. The story has had an influence across literature and popular culture and spawned a complete genre of horror stories and films. It is arguably considered the first fully realized science fiction novel.
