The Game
The Game

It's noon now, and he's staring at me, looking up from the paper he had so violently scribbled on. Andrew always does this, everytime I look at him, as if mocking me, he stares straight back at me from across the room. I hate the way he stares: unblinking, unmoving, with no emotion in sight....

The Nerve of Some People
The Nerve of Some People

I awoke to the sound of screaming. It was the middle if the night (vague enough?), and the volume of the scream was faint but steady. A second or two of scream, then it would die off, then...there's the scream again. It was a fairly high-pitched scream, and I immediately assumed it to... Read more

Until Tonight
Until Tonight

The bell above the door dinged as a man in a black leather jacket stepped into the convenience store, unleashing a rushing wave of hot summer air into the air-conditioned building. Save for the cashier behind the counter, the store was empty. The man adjusted the sunglasses covering his eyes... Read more

Bromidic Subsistence (very short story)
Bromidic Subsistence (very short story)

She stared at me again today. The moment I entered the grimy little shop I felt that claustrophobic countenance rippling over my person. The tiny hairs on my arms danced as if desperately seeking shelter. Not wishing to give away anything that may be tactically beneficial to... Read more

Scars of the Old Stream
Scars of the Old Stream

Hugh cast his weary eye in their direction. They were getting ahead of him again. Their stamina both amazed and dismayed him. Most of them looked as if they hadn’t done a day’s exercise in their lives. One seemed to be a lawyer all the way from London; another, a doctor from Liverpool. All... Read more

Who is Thomas Ligotti?
Who is Thomas Ligotti?
a short story inspired by a great writer

The story evolves around what some people say about Ligotti, that he does not exist.

The Mime
The Mime

The Mime By: Grant Wamack I was walking down the street and to my amazement I saw a mime. Mimes are hard to come by today because one does not have the time or the resources to search for the circus or the fair, but today I was a lucky man. I hurried to the small crowd that surrounded... Read more

He would never have believed the rumours had he not gone to see for himself. He had to go. Father’s life was at stake, after all. He didn’t have to travel far before he saw them. They were in a group, some no bigger than him, wearing disguises, it seemed, that were disquietingly similar to... Read more

The Hunger
The Hunger

The Hunger Their cries sounded almost human. The despair in their voices was unmistakable. They must have realised, he thought. He couldn’t help them any more than he could help the others now. He hadn’t seen any of them lately. It was probably driving the others crazy – but... Read more

Graffiti
Graffiti
Jay Stevol

The graffiti on our estate wasn’t limited to the usual places. It was everywhere, on the tops of phone masts, the underbellies of cars. Once, peering through a sewer grille on the side of a road, I saw one lurking beneath the filth and the running water.

I’d passed the shop several times before. What made me stop now, peering through the grime-streaked glass at the grinning, wide-eyed faces beyond, I do not know, but presently the bell tinkled, the street sounds dimmed, and the door closed softly behind me.

DECOYS
DECOYS

Decoys Thursday: I think I could be foreseeing a future event through my dream. I know it sounds crazy – but apparently it is quite common! The books I have been reading say that people can have precognition and prophecy through dreams. The trouble is that mine tends to suggest a... Read more

black coins

There is a manuscript written. There. I've said it. It's done. I find myself reluctant to even write about the existence of that accursed thing. That dreadful writing, enough to make one's skin crawl. I turn, I close my eyes to try and wash the knowledge of it away. It's still... Read more

Coldness, Overwhelming
Coldness, Overwhelming

The air was harsh, the world cold. Whiteness surrounded me, clouding the sky and clutching my ankles. Every step taken was tough, then again there’s never any easy steps in life. I walked and walked some more; all the while snow smacked my face. Coming to a halt, I looked up. It towered... Read more
