“time for bed” my mother said “you have school in the morning” she tucked me in kissed me then crept away silently i laid there for a bit and then the feeling hit something was watching me i sat up rather quick turned the light on which lit my room and i saw nothing with a sense of relief i try to go to sleep but alas i still feel eerie over to the closet i sneak and i hear the door creak then dive back in bed like a swimmer oh it’s just the cat “get out of here Matt” it’s calm in my room once again the closet door flies and something skulks in in fear i throw the covers over my head i hear something breathing i feel my heart racing i hope i’m just dreaming again the blankets get yanked off in the air i am tossed i land on the floor and crawl under the bed something grazed my coat my heart is in my throat there’s something walking towards me it’s feet have claws which probably slice logs it’s skin is slimy and black i’m screaming in fear but nobody hears and the creature tries to grab me another comes from the side and another from behind they drag me back to the closet from which they came it’s dark in this place can’t see my hand on my face and several monsters are above me their mouths are wet and slimy “MOMMY!” i am crying and like hungry lions they begin to feast
I have a new book on the way, releasing on September 17 of this year. The Morbid Museum is a collection of short horror fiction. The prevailing theme is death. Curated by Siris Grim who may or may not be an immortal being, but he knows his museum stuff and his death stuff.
The collection includes 19 stories presented as exhibits in a museum. They are all framed around the story of the museum itself. It will release in both eBook and Paperback. You can pre-order the eBook now. It will deliver to the device of your choosing on September 17.
This is my first full-length collection of short fiction. Some of these stories I wrote many years ago and I’ve tweaked and edited them over time. A trained eye will notice which stories I’ve written more recently as they are better written. Some stories I wrote over 10 years ago. Others I started writing 10 years ago and only recently completed.
I’ve begun development on my next collection of short fiction. It won’t be a sequel to this book but it will have similar themes. I hope you enjoy this collection and look forward to my future works. If you enjoy these stories, I hope you’ll consider my other works. Thank you and enjoy.
Visitors to the Morbid Museum seek the dark and twisted corners of the world. They are both terrified and intrigued by the unknown. Tales of killers, monsters, and madmen curated by the Master of Death, Mr. Siris Grim. Mr. Grim collects the darkness that everyone attempts to hide. He displays it within the corridors of his gruesome gallery. Who will be next to buy a ticket and walk the halls of the Morbid Museum?
