“I’m sorry to disappoint you, but my father won’t be able to answer your questions. Any questions. The best I can gather is that some…thing…from the lake…got hold of his tongue and…it had to be removed. Or that’s what he thinks happened, anyway. But the rest of what he wrote, about the people around here being taken over, controlled… I’m not sure about his state of mind. I think we should keep him…relaxed.” Continue reading »

Maternal Instinct

“Flash fiction” is all the rage. And, with the following short-short, all the terror as well.

The woman collapsed in the foam of the oncoming surf, sobbing anguished screams and gripping fistfuls of wet sand so tightly that soaked granules slipped between her clenched fingers.

“Not Jason! Not my grandbaby!” She hurled curses against the roar of the inbound tide, foam bubbling white around her knees. This black night the ocean did not answer.

The Krampus

Image is of a male expressing humanoid monster. It has long goat-like horns on it's forhead, a mouth full of teeth like a lion, a pointy curved in nose, long pointed ears and is covered in fur. It's hands are shackled and in one he's holding whips, the other is the strap to the satchel over his back which appears to be holding children. He is grimacing with sadistic glee.

It came right at me, walking past Gregor.. Gregor grabbed the fire poker and began beating the thing. It flailed in the air, as if it had no idea where Gregor was… finally in frustration it leapt out the window.  We never understood why until later when we were adults and Gregor explained his bruises.

The Fallen Arabians, Servitors of the Elder Goddess Nemesis

Image is of 3 partially decomposed arabian dressed corpses wielding swords.

The Fallen Arabians
Art by Brad Hicks for the OctoberNomicon Art Contest

These creatures first appear after the Battle of Thermopylae (480 BC) during the Second Persian Invasion of Greece. They were once men, conscripted soldiers of the Arabian tribe, and part of the massive army led by the Persian King Xerxes. They were used as fodder, hurled against the Spartan simply to tire the formidable Greek soldiers before more valuable solders faced them. Thousands of these Arabians died in a single morning accomplishing nothing. Their bodies lay forgotten and unburied, fed upon by crows and wild dogs.  But for the Fallen Arabians death brought them neither rest nor freedom. These men are still called to fight and die, only this time by the dark powers of the Elder Goddess Nemesis, and her cultists. Continue reading »

Subject: REDACTEDThe gist of your report:  Subject wandered away from her hiking group on July 10.  Extensive ground and air search over fifty miles turned up nothing.  Body was found seventeen miles away on July 14, three hundred feet from an inhabited cabin.  Autopsy shows abrasions on arms and legs.  Death consistent with dehydration, even though this area is filled with lakes and streams.

Why didn’t she seek shelter?  Or call for help?  Or even take a damn drink?

And what about the other three bodies from the last ten years?

It was a big blob with a small round head with no neck, looking like a roly-poly. Around its big eyes were wrinkles that glowed…I knew it wanted me to go somewhere. I found myself slipping off the bed. Suddenly, the thing released its strange force and it was gone.” – From the Files of National Investigations Committee On Aerial Phenomena.

Review: OffWorld Designs Apparel

While I’m not normally politically engaged (politics are like assholes…no…wait…politics are filled with assholes, that’s it…), I found myself suddenly inclined to get drunk, read a good book, and broadcast my love for the newly announced candidate.

Cthulhu believes in equal liberties for all...as long as liberties means destruction and death.

The Ring of Fylegt, Part II

Ring

Part II of this epic novella.

Read Part I

VI

“That was only the first dream. Countless others filtered into my mind every night while I slept, each one becoming more ridiculous and terrifying than the last. But they all had one connection, that monster. In some way or another, it was in each dream, even if the dream was a pleasant one. I remember, this one time, I was fooling around with Jennifer Sweet, a vivacious model at the time, and there it was, leaning over us like a disapproving mother. Before it yanked her from me, and hung her by her neck with its black tentacle, I jumped out of bed and puked. It came to the point that after every dream, I would wake up sick to my stomach.

“A few months had past and I was growing curious about the thing, so I ventured into the libraries and random bookstores in the city, looking for any type of books that dealt with supernaturalism, demonology, urban legends, and really anything that could be connected to dreams. I didn’t find much on the monster specifically, but I did find a lot of information on things that were to it, in a book called Vieni Prieš Mus, which roughly meant, Ones Before Us. Originally, I later found out, it was written in Egyptian, then translated in a few different languages, like old Chinese, Greek, and Hebrew. I assumed it was a pretty old book.
