Às Quartas na Amazon #5

Voltamos hoje, desta vez a explorar um novo tema... terror :) Algum fã por aí?


Outside the Wire,
de Richard Farnsworth

Fallen angels, demons, lycanthropes, monsters and even a disembodied hand (or is it), Outside the Wire is a collection of six previously published short stories about things we don’t want to let in, all anthologized for your reading pleasure. 


The Acolyte,
de L.J. Stephens

When his parents go missing, 17 year old Brian Prescott learns that his father is a member of The Priesthood, one of two occult sects locked in a centuries old conflict over an ancient relic. In order to save his parents, he must train in the occult arts and fight the rival Necromancers, an enemy who uses magick to reanimate the dead for use in battle.


Boo Hag,
de Brian Rickman

October carries with it a chill that Benny Watt can't seem to shake. Ever since the Titantic sank, he's been burdened with thoughts of his own mortality. It keeps him up nights, in fact. Money and women are plentiful for Mr. Watt but, at 34, he can't help but feel that his life is missing something important: a family. He's certain that should he marry and have children, the nagging constant of his inevitable demise will be stifled. So, when he sets his mind upon a beautiful young girl named Edith, Benny feels his world finally bears merit. In a whirlwind romance, they marry. Benny has it all: political power, money, cars, a gorgeous, young wife, enemies that die gruesomely should they ever upset said wife...wait...what?


Necroforms,
de Paul Melhuish


"The burial will be in about a week. I'll contact you with the precise date and time." 
"You can cremate her if you want. Save yourself some money." 
Hunt turned on him. "That would be utterly improper. Fire mustn't touch her. It is proper that she is laid in the ground in accordance with her profound wishes." 
James felt his face flushing after the Undertaker's ticking off. Then the anger kicked in. "She's dead. It's not like she's going to know." 
"The only absence of knowledge is your own, Mr Guest. Now good day."

DO THE DEAD FIND REST? Sometimes, but not in the way you might think...
This Greyhart Press eBook is a short story, a perfect length to enjoy on your lunch break, or to complement a drink in your favorite coffee house. At 5,500 words, this story would be about 22 pages in paperback.
Be warned, though. You won't want to be on your own after you've read this story. Especially if you can smell parma violets!
