The Crimson Pact is released. Charge your Kindle and Nook!
The Crimson Pact is an anthology of interesting, well-told stories, ultimately united by the concept presented in the lead-in story, “The Failed Crusade,” where demons have been unleashed upon the universe. The other stories broadly interpret the possibilities. The results: the bigger unifying theme of good fighting evil, even if demons are not the obvious culprits.
The fifteen short stories and eleven flash fiction pieces will entertain for hours. There’s horror with some steampunk, romance, and a touch of light fantasy in the mix, spanning time and space.
I assisted with a proofread and had a sneak peek a couple weeks ago. My personal favorites are “Solitary Life” by Donald J. Bingle, “Stained with Nightmare Juice” by Isaac Bell, “The Things that Crawl” by Richard Lee Byers, “Sins of the Father” by Kathy Watness, and “Of the Breaking of Stars” by Chris Pierson. Superstar Larry Correia, a New York Times bestselling author, also has a short story in the collection. Those alone would make The Crimson Pact a fun find. Plus, don’t forget my flash: “Inside Monastic Walls.”
Anthologies are a great way to discover new writers. They also provide for a variety of stories when exploring a genre.
Another volume is planned, so, if you like this, there is more to come. The fun has just begun.
