“Prey”... just one of the thirteen tales awaiting you within these covers.
by Rob Borkowski
WARWICK, RI — In honor of the 129th anniversary of the birthday of H.P. Lovecraft, Rhode Island’s famously horror-pioneering author, WarwickPost.com presents its yearly subscribers with “Weird Rhody,” four disturbing stories sure to entertain.
Within its pages, a father meets a mysterious little girl during a trip to the beach, aging athletes explore the limits of superstition, a killer boasts superhuman abilities, and a small town listens to an influential tune.
Rob Borkowski, Editor at the Warwick Post, has set up an eBook celebrating H.P. Lovecraft's birthday (and our eerie little state), and I'm proud to be a part of it. Check it out, and if you're local, subscribe!
Spirit of the Dead
by G.A. Miller
New England is steeped with tradions, some which should not be discussed after the sun sets in the evenings, and the dark is deep and full...
One such tradition involves the Elder, the Baba Yaga, now well over one hundred years of age...and suffering the onset of Dementia, without realizing it
You know, the number they generally skip in tall buildings for fear of bad luck.
The actual number of items in a Baker’s Dozen, supposedly originated to insure they wouldn’t suffer punishments for short selling their goods.
And the number of stories I’ve included in this collection for your enjoyment.
“And Then The Phone Rang” would be right at home in Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone, while “A Quiet Evening” involves a nameless visitor, quite possibly from a Lovecraftian dimension.
Most of these are newer tales, ones just starting to make the rounds to a myriad of publishers, and some are old friends. I think they sit well together, and I hope you come to the same conclusion as you read them.
It has been an amazing journey in a short time, and I'd like to share that journey with my visitors
This site will grow and evolve over time, following the path, the journey that begins with the simple question...What If? That's where reality takes an unexpected turn, and that's exactly what the tales are all about...
