Physician Most Ravenous Authored by The Grim Reverend Steven Rage
During the height of England’s Bubonic Plague An ancient Evil Force strolls into London-Town in the form of a would-be doctor. It could smell the blood from miles away, wanting only to help. At the hospital where he cares for the victims of this Black Death, the ill came to him unimpeded. They arrived and fell by the scores. With the help of his ever-faithful assistant, Sightless Agness, the MOST RAVENOUS PHYSICIAN cares for them all. He treats them until there is nothing left but their empty eye sockets, a few pounds of leeched bleached bones and some bolts of old dried-out flesh-leather parchment.But the eyes, the eyes of the dead? Sightless Agness keeps for herself. Seems Fair.

PILATE: Director’s Cut Authored by The Grim Reverend Steven Rage
Pilate’s legend in The Harbor is so vicious, the body count so high, his ruthlessness so ingrained in the local lore that Theodosius has trouble believing he’s even real. It feels to him like all the frightened whispers are nothing more than a series of ever-exaggerating tall tales. And even if he does exist, the dirty cop firmly believes that all those stories are way overblown. Is Pilate a real live human being? Maybe. But a vampire? Not so much. But we believe only in what allows us to get through the day and sleep well at night. Especially when potent narcs are being peddled and so much money is on the line. Unfortunately, Pilate is very real and every bit the horror he’s heard to be. As poor Theodosius will soon witness himself, much to his chagrin.
Pontius Pilate is cursed to be a vampire. Life after life after life. And for the Plata dealing Pilate, his life is more like a death sentence. His only chance surviving is to keep on selling his monthly quota of Plata. This new man-made narcotic is a potent speed-ball designed to amp up the user, while also numbing the conscience into euphoric oblivion. To nullify the pain. To stifle the torture. To run and to hid from all the anguish inside. PILATE is a drug lord vampire in this re-telling of Christ’s final days. When given yet another chance to save the Earth’s latest Christ, will the re-incarnated Pilate choose to protect Her? Or to save his drug business, his money and his friends, will the modern day Pilate instead choose to wash his hands of the whole ordeal? Pilate shall have to allow the torture and death of a Holy Person in order to save his very own life. ” For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” This is a truly Brutal Bible Tale. A dismal post-industrial future. A look at man defiled and in decline. Evil has arrived and Dominion has been taken by the damned, the demons, vampires, vicious ghosts and strange halflings. The cast-aside by-products of all the debauched rampages and scientific sins against nature. Sex, drugs, and broken souls are the only trade commodities left.

Pharmacide Authored by Steven Scott Nelson RRT
It looks like Carolyn and Mark are in deep, deep shit…
Mark and Carolyn live in an alternate 1989 where Ronald Reagan is on his fourth presidential term. The USA has a rigid, long-standing caste system and abortions were never made legal. Being homeless is a crime that is punishable by imprisonment in an internment camp the inmates call Tent City. Most of Mark’s ER patients are inmates at this camp and are victims of a new disease these illegals call the Transient Flu. This deadly and rapidly spreading disease mutates with each new host, collecting information, changing code. The disease evolves lightning quick, spreading like pond ripples and infecting everyone. No one is safe. Mark and Carolyn dig too deep and uncover the brutal truth: Transient Flu was purposely made and is one hundred percent fatal. Carolyn’s employer, Hudson-Smythe Pharmaceuticals, discovers the chain of evidence and traces the pharmacide back to Hudson-Smythe and the crime of the century. Cost is no object and deadly force is authorized.
Yes. Carolyn and Mark are in deep, deep shit.

Transmatic Authored by Chris Kelso
US Kindle Countdown Deal. Price goes up to $1.99 in 0 days,
Review snippet by Vincenzo Bilof:
“The hitman metaphor resonates with me because the paranoia is inferred rather than felt; the slave state concept itself is the psychological derangement imagined by a society that wants its own annihilation. Of course, my understanding of this piece is exclusive to me, because my interpretation is personal. I believe Transmatic can be read through different lenses, and like a poem, it can be read more than once; I love the aesthetics Kelso employs, and the characterization is subtle, the setting is engaging. More Kelso. Now.”
“…part-time hitman/ exterminator, Ignius Ellis’s dream is to buy a candy-apple red Nova Supreme. In the process of trying to earn enough cash to make his dream come true he gets sucked into the rough world of Visitacion Valley, SF. When the tenants in his apartment complex reveal their various extracurricular activities this take an even more bizarre twist and Ellis soon becomes acquainted with the nightmarish Salve State dimension…”
