For those that read the story prior to the having the html tagging problems rectified, I apologize.
Some errors are lingering. I have no idea why StoriesOnline has such serious issues with italics and other tags, but it is what it is.
The italics at the start should last until the end of the dream sequence. The link at the end of the story to Returning Home should be a live hyperlink. Oh well.
The story is set in the same world with some of the same characters as Returning Home. If you enjoyed one, you may want to check out the other.
I have two new stories up. The first is "A Montauk Horror". A complete story unto itself, it could be viewed as the first story in the Montauk series. It is set in the 1970s and gets a little weird. If you've enjoyed any of the other Montauk stories, I think you'll like it.
The second story is "The Vivisectionist", a modern day romance that involves vampires, vampire hunters, Biblical characters and has its roots in the first century.
I'm working on a few new stories, including two more in the Montauk series. If you've read anything I have written, I appreciate your taking the time.
St. Patrick's Day has lots of festive people and copious amounts of beer. That's good, because the rest of it sucks. Corned beef is traditionally boiled. Boiled!
Isn't that why we rebelled against England in the first place? We didn't want taxation without representation and we certainly didn't want boiled meat. That's why BBQ was invented in the good old USA. And Irish Soda Bread? Dry as the Sahara.
Horrible. So, why not expand on the horror and indulge in some amazing stories with a gothic horror theme later in the week?
Some amazing authors with a shed full of clitoride nominations will be participating in an event for the readers where they submit stories with a gothic horror theme on March 20th.
For the very reasonable price of FREE, you get to enjoy story after story from some very talented writes.
Beyond the Walls of Sleep
On March 20th a number of very talented writers will be submitting stories to Storiesonline that are inspired by their favorite works of gothic horror. Look for the Beyond The Walls Of Sleep universe.
The roster of authors is impressive, and they've all worked diligently to provide the readers with thrills, chills and damned good stories. Some of the writers are fan favorites, some are promising newcomers. All of them are enthusiastic about participating in this themed event.
I somehow fooled them into allowing me to participate and I'll have two stories as part of the effort. One is set in the Montauk universe and the other is a vampire story that I've had bouncing around in my head for a while.
I hope that you'll all enjoy the stories presented.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
It appears as though the issues with repeating text and truncation of the ending have been corrected.
Thanks to the SOL staff for jumping on this so quickly!
