Re: I'm a new author who wrote a collection of short, existential horror stories

Thank you James, I have just read "The Tree Of Death", which I enjoyed. My only other comment would be on the ending as it could have finished a little less open-ended or more graphically but I'm not sure whether that would have worked better than the actual ending. Thank you for the feedback, Alex!

"The Tree of Death"

Pedro Oliveira circled a spot on the map that lay unfolded on the table before him. A thin film of sweat shined upon his forehead. Dust motes floated in the light that beamed through the hut's wooden shutters. He tapped his pen in the circle as he looked at Isabella Silva and said, "Here's the place...

How comfortable are you with ambiguity in horror?

One thing I've noticed is that there's a spectrum when it comes to comfort levels with ambiguity as a plot device in horror. Some people prefer the very ambiguous, creeping, growing dread of films such as Witch and Hereditary while others prefer the explicit, in-your-face, "I'm going to kill you rig...

Re: Why Can't You See Them?

Absolutely, DJ! I changed the size of the image in my signature. Will that work? I can make it smaller, too.

Why Can't You See Them?

Officer Brigitte McCray led the small, pale woman into the interrogation room. She pulled out a chair for her at the table, then sat down on the other side. She used a pen to write the woman’s name, Allison Derby, and her address on a notepad. Then, with a blank look on her face, she said, “Tell me ...

I'm a new author who wrote a collection of short, existential horror stories

Growing up, I loved watching the Twilight Zone, especially the horror episodes with a dramatic twist at the end. When I first got into reading horror fiction, I found H.P. Lovecraft's work to be terrifying, thrilling, and enthralling. Now, I'm trying to make it as a professional author and I wrote a...
