One for the Road

Out on the road, you find out who you really are.

What you really are…

Escaped killer Daniel is sure of himself. Armed and dangerous, devil-may-care; he’s a hunter – a vampire – on the run from the cops and enjoying the ride.

Sarah, she’s just running from herself, from what she might become; until she meets Daniel, she has no idea she’s running for her life…

They make quite the couple. Their chance meeting will change their lives forever. It’s a relationship blessed in blood – and death is coming along for the ride.

At Death’s Door

A macabre stream of consciousness tale with a heavy dose of creeping horror…

Male pride and ageing flesh is never a good combination; a lesson Jeremy McMahn learns the hard way when his car comes off the road. The thrill of speed and recollected youth ends in mangled metal…

Crawling from the wreckage, delirious, surely hallucinating, Jeremy finds himself haunted by the spectral figure of a woman calling him to follow. She’s the very image of his wife, rejuvenated; how can that be possible?

Lured onwards, he finds himself stumbling over the edge of reason. Out of body, out of mind, out of his depth: Jeremy’s journey into the heart of the macabre is only just beginning…

“At Death’s Door is another [story] that creeped me. It’s a surreal (I hope) journey into what Poe called the hypnagogic state of mind when you’re unsure of reality and fantasy and the boundaries between become distorted and (as in this piece) break down!”

Jim Palmer, Writers’ Muse magazine, August 2009 #50, from his review of the author’s collection, ISOLATION SPACE.

Deadly Night Shade

She was the one who was afraid of the dark, that’s why the other vamps in her gang laughingly called her Shade, but now the joke’s on them, and she’s the one still breathing.

When a night on the town turns deadly, when all her friends are slain, Shade must overcome her fears or join them in the grave. In the dead of night, Shade faces a horror she never expected.

She will learn there are worse things to fear than the dark…

The story first appeared in an edition of The Velvet Vampire (1994) under the title ‘Blood Feud’. The story was subsequently revised and reworked, later appearing under its current title in Monomyth Vol. 6.4 #40 (2006).
