Wakeful Children by S.P. Oldham

wcrgbWhen you open the pages of Wakeful Children, you peer into the mind of a depraved killer who started out small; the panic-stricken thoughts of a recovering alcoholic, just trying to get to a group meeting; the anguished, silent prayers of a man whose only wish is to get a peaceful night’s sleep. You get a glimpse into the greediness of a collector of old, even ancient artifacts – just don’t ask how he came upon them; the idle thoughts of a girl, playing innocently in the grounds of her grandparent’s house, oblivious to what she really is; the calculating machinations of an apparently frail, beautiful woman who is not all she appears to be.

The thoughts and actions of all these beings and more, including entities too old to truly age, spirits too nebulous to name, make up eleven short, intriguing, unsettling stories by S P Oldham, every story fresh and original. Beautifully descriptive prose, sometimes shockingly brutal passages coupled with vividly imagined and clearly depicted storylines make Wakeful Children: A Collection of Horror and Supernatural Tales an intriguing, inventive debut for this author.

Fangtastic Tales of Werewolf Savagery by Toneye Eyenot

fangtasticLa Lluna Plena – the Full Moon – that beautiful and mysterious celestial body which stirs within us all those deep, dark emotions we do our best to subdue and control. For some of us, her influence runs deeper, much deeper. We all walk beneath her maddening rays, yet, while most may shrug off the notion that inside us all resides a beast – a savage wolf – there are those of us who embrace the monster within and ride that lunatic wave with abandon each time she casts her gaze upon us.

Some see it as a blessing, others…a curse. To be bitten, and fall prey to murderous urges beyond our control, or to have the good fortune to be born into the pack, or perhaps even to whisper words of spell in order to evoke the lycanthropic gift, there are more than a few ways to cast aside the human skin and let loose the wolf within. Those ways are explored throughout this collection of werewolf terrors.

Suspend disbelief, dear reader, because whether you care to admit it, or continue to live in ignorant bliss, we walk among you. We smell the blood as it courses through your veins and taste your fear on the breeze. We long to see the life drain from your quivering flesh as we gorge. Beware the Full Moon, as you are about to enter the world of the Werewolf. Buy here

Everyone works and, when they aren’t slaving, they watch television—thousands of channels covering every perversion and insanity. Fokst is the chief of the daytime schedule, one of the powerful. On the cusp of gaining access to the inner sanctums of depravity he must prove his worth, convince his boss that he is the best man for the job, prove that his shows are the best. Only thing is, he hates them all, never watches them if he can avoid it. With an audit in eight hours and a thousand shows to watch, Fokst knows today is going to be a long day in Hell. Chaos Tales II: Hell TV is another gut churning collection from Christopher Law. It really isn’t for children or the squeamish. Buy UK and US

Life According to Poetry by Sarah Northwood

sarah nPoetry flows effortlessly from my thoughts to the journey of my soul. In reality, the world is seldom as simple and things are harder to bear in darkness.
As you, too, take this journey, remember those whom we choose to share our path will light our way. It leaves us ready to face the world afresh once again.
I will never be the person I was, instead I will be something better.
I will let the gift of today help me reach the heights of tomorrow,
and the scars of my past will be the jewels glinting on the top of the mountain.

Smoke and Shadows by Joanne Van Leerdam

Smoke and Shadows 6x9 Low ResIt’s a common thing. As we go through life, we discover that people and things are frequently not what they seem to be, and what we understand to be the truth of our own experience often turns out to be something quite different instead. Life is as full of illusions as it is of genuine experiences.

False friends abound. Trials hurt, but then deliver unexpected strength and blessings. People put up smokescreens to hide their true intentions or feelings; and only sometimes do we ever discover why. The world seems hateful until someone delivers light and love in a surprising way.

The poems in this new collection explore some of the illusions and deceptions people experience in their lives, the clarity and wisdom gained from hindsight, and the lessons we can learn from them.

“Smoke and shadows yield to glimpses of light—
Only then we begin to see:
When we learn to perceive things as they are,
We can have peace with whatever will be.”

In My Words by Yasir Suilaiman

In my wordsThis book is a small collection of poems I wrote on various topics. Some may be on romance, some on women, while others on philosophy. I request the readers to consider that these are a few poems I have saved over the years. There are hundreds more that remain unpublished.

Also, many of these poems have already been listed on one platform or the other. Poetry or being an author is not my profession. I have been writing poetry since the age of eight and it continues to remain a hobby. These poems simply highlight the ways I view different things in the world. These are voices of my heart.

There are stories behind each poem in this book that I would love to share on special request. Some of them are from my books. I have tried to cover different subjects through my poetry. Readers of my books and poems are requested to observe that my writing is as varied as the number of people across the globe. Buy UK and US

Solitary Confinement by Kat Lehmkuhl

Keep the tea hot, keep the fires stoked, and listen. Hear the lullaby of a soft piano soothe you into a calm you have forgotten existed. Add some chocolates and I will be there, if only as the voice in your mind, telling you my tales. You see, we all have challenges. We all have stories. This is mine. Buy UK and US

 

Atha by Sally-Shakti Willow (Available from May 6th)

AthaSally-Shakti Willow’s bold new collection Atha utilises collage technique to espouse a Utopian Poetics described as ‘a relationship of non-alienation between reader and writer’ in which one encounters one’s embodied and intersubjective self. In combining fragments from a rich array of sources such as yoga manuals with the 24 hour news cycle, Willow ensures that this enquiry fully integrates inner and outer worlds in lines like ‘hormone secretions stimulate freedom of movement.’ In her series of rituals for Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, this utopian tension is memorably chased by a ‘ghostword’ that ‘sembles’ and ‘dissembles’ as it ‘search [es] the words / for the root.’ The final section ‘Movement & Meditation’ opens with the question ‘how to metabolise this’, when ‘this’ feels like all the evils of the world rising to engulf us. That the answer must be ‘my voice’ puts Willow’s courageous and generous work firmly in the company of writers like Maggie O’Sullivan – to whom she pays tribute here – making Atha an accomplished and inspiring act of ‘edgewordering.’

The House That Jack Built by Dale Robertson

house jack builtOld Man Jack is a myth, a legend that school kids use to scare one another. He was once a man who kept his life private, until events unfolded that didn’t go in his favour.

His house is seen as a challenge by the kids; a place of eeriness, menace and excitement, a chance to prove their courage to their peers – “Mess about in there and Old Man Jack will get you,” they say. Some children have explored the building and come back with elaborate stories of the supernatural to spread around the playground. Some haven’t come back at all, or so the tales go. No story is the same, so which one do you believe?

Sebastian, Tommy and Regan have heard all the talk, but are still eager to earn themselves legendary status.

They are about to find out exactly what happens in the house that Jack built. Buy UK and US
