FALLING DOWN THE NIGHTMARE


Emory Northam is in the fitful throes of a nightmare, again!
Another day of hard work past, 
He fell asleep almost as soon as he walked through the bedroom door!
What is he thinking as he twitches and jerks on the top of the quilt?
He is obviously... Falling Down The Nightmare!

RLJ





FALLING DOWN THE NIGHTMARE

(Vancouver, Canada)


The dream is still always the same... me falling up, or down, into the nothingness as I impotently scream!
I know that I'm asleep and dreaming as the horror unfolds, but I'm helpless to take control of my mind!
As I'm falling, I remember the old myth that warns the dreamer that to hit the floor in a nightmare is to die!
That notion is where the horror in my dream resides... will I roll off my bed and die trapped in this nightmare... or, will I awake again, perhaps, to dream again?

A TEACHER'S LACHRYMATION (AN EXCERPT)


And who will lead the children after most of the adults die in the fallout of nuclear war?
You should hope to your God a few teachers survive.
Imagine the pressure that will cause... A Teacher's Lachrymation!

RLJ





A TEACHER'S LACHRYMATION  (AN EXCERPT)

(Los Angeles, California)


...Two pain caused tears slowly cascaded down the cheeks of Miss. Lars, one of the last school teachers left in LA.
At 72 years old, she is old enough to remember the day the first nuclear bomb fell on Los Angeles... The Great Day Of Sadness!
The then President was busy wrecking world peace with his racist, threatening and crazy America First Nonsense!
He baited frightening world leaders with his crazy rhetoric, while Americans stood by and passively watched the madness of world war unfold, and the end result was the end of a beautiful world... and the few children left to pick up the pieces are the ones who suffered the most!...

FACTOR ZOMBIES INTO THE HEALTHCARE DEBATE


Even in the far distant future, 
The American healthcare debate debacle continues!
And when the first zombies rose up out of their graves...
And they began to murder and eat, and infect, the living...
The ruling party of United States Government perversely decided to NOT...
Factor Zombies Into The Healthcare Debate!

RLJ






FACTOR ZOMBIES INTO THE HEALTHCARE DEBATE

(Olney, Maryland)


The healthcare debate of hundreds of years ago continues even during the zombie apocalypse of 2143!
One would have assumed, when the government took control of Dr. Jones' injectable cure in 2141, the government would work together to make us all whole!
But hell no... the Republicans, as racist and evil as always, raised holy hell at the idea of another attempt at universal healthcare and allowed the zombie carnage to continue!
Politics, religion, greed, Republicanism and hatred were their reasons to keep the cure in the Washington, D.C. fortress... while the rest of humanity continues to battle the undead... until we all find a way to get inside the beltway!

WHAT DO I EAT IN THE THROES OF THE APOCALYPSE


All around us,
Even in the midst of this isolating hellish horror,
Is food we can eat.
On and in the ground...
And off the ocean...
Is the food we need.
You just need to know... What Do I Eat In The Throes Of The Apocalypse?

RLJ





WHAT DO I EAT IN THE THROES OF THE APOCALYPSE

(The Lower East Coast, USA)

Hell descended upon thousands of coastal families from off the Atlantic Ocean!
An ocean so warm it's water became crazy and boiled into an angry god!
Its wind and rain and fury has destroyed everything we know... including the stuff we eat!
But we have rounded up a small amount of canned goods... we will share... and share the secret of opening cans without a can opener!

THE MOST DANGEROUS ANIMALS ON THE EARTH


The evil undead are everywhere!
Don't you know that?
Especially, here in Europe!
Here, they are more powerful because are on their motherland!
And it is up to determined men like me to hunt down...
The Most Dangerous Animals On The Earth!

FAL





THE MOST DANGEROUS ANIMALS ON THE EARTH

(Nice, France)


It is probably a sexist notion to say what I am about to say... but, I must be the man to tell the truth!
The most dangerous animal on the earth is a woman... a particular woman... and she is deadly!
To say she is a woman is really a stretch of the imagination... as she stares at me through the silver bars.
Yes, she is caged... like the dangerous animal she is... captured by me... Frantz Leggott, vampire hunter... I who hunt the most dangerous animals on the earth!

THE VERY AIR HE BREATHES


Prologue to: THE VERY AIR HE BREATHES

Sometimes Luther tends to not take his ailment seriously.
He will, every once in awhile, leave his medicine at home.
Tonight is the night he really needs his medicine.
He is in deep, deadly, mortal trouble.
And his demise might revolve around... The Very Air He Breaths!

RLJ




THE VERY AIR HE BREATHES

(Charleston, West Virginia)


When Luther Jones' chest began to tighten, he knew that he was royally screwed!
He knew, all too well, when his asthma was about to kick in and drain the air from him!
And here he is, running full speed blindly through the midnight dark forest, without his inhaler!
And somewhere behind him is that bloodsucking creature masquerading as a beautiful woman... and he has run out of air... and how could he have forgotten his inhaler on the kitchen table?

WHO TELLS THE TALE OF MY DEATH (AN EXCERPT)


Amy Marks read a lot of horror books when she was alive!
She was now shocked to find herself in her own horror tale!
She shocked herself silly when she sat upright in her casket!
She realized she was dead... and now reanimated... with a purpose!
She allowed herself an embalmed sly smirk,
As she climbed out of the ornate casket.
She whispered to herself, "Who Tells The Tale Of My Death?"

ALM






WHO TELLS THE TALE OF MY DEATH  (AN EXCERPT)

(FAYETTEVILLE, N.C.)


...I feel like the death of my life, and my rebirth as an undead revenant, has already been told!
There are those horror tales, in both literature and cinema, of the returned who seek revenge!
Creative writers write those tales that entertain... without having to deal with consequences!
Me... I have to live with my own decay, my gnawing compulsion to find and eat my killer, and the horror of my realization that I am very permanently dead!...

ANOTHER HORROR WINTERTIDE


Sometimes frightening things blow along with the winds of winter!
Some people living off the grid in outland places know that fright well!
To this woman holed-up in her bunker of a home in the dead of winter,
To her, it is all just... Another Horror Wintertide!

ANOTHER HORROR WINTERTIDE

A DESERT DEATH  (AN EXCERPT)

(The Sonoran Desert, Arizona)


...The Arizona desert is hot as hell during the daytime and not really all that cold at night!
It is summer time right now and all kinds of weird things bake in the heat of the day!
Take the soulless zombie-like naked man crawling around in the dust, his blistered skin red and raw and decaying!
He did not survive last night, the rattle snake bite made sure of that... but now, the sun is up high and it looks like death cannot keep this dead man from seeking his revenge!...

THE CRAZIES ARE ON THE OUTSIDE


Sabbito Ballard was making good progress with his homicidal psychosis!
The drug therapy, and the nurses, were working together very well!
He was not allowed to walk the halls yet, but he has been given privileges!
Everybody wants a little TV time!
But, unbeknownst to the hospital staff, darkness haunts the TV screen!
And a former reality star business man...
He with a big mouth and hatred in his rhetoric...
Has set back Sabbito with his rancid infecting words!
Sabbido just whispered to himself... The Crazies Are On The Outside!

RLJ





THE CRAZIES ARE ON THE OUTSIDE

(Annandale, Virginia)

The gloomy noise coming from my TV has been loud and manic and driving me bat shit crazier!
All I've heard about, day after day, is the psycho-drunken horror infecting the American mindscape!
When the ignorant are given too much power, they make horrific choices that will drag free people to hell!
 I thought the padded cell walls of this mental institute was hell on earth... that is until I was given TV rights... and now I know hell is really out there with the real crazies I hunt and eliminate!

THE GREAT REALIZATION

(Manassas, Virginia)


Oh yea, you better goddamn well believe it that I'm obsessed with death!
I recently came to the self-realization that I am almost 60 years old and fading fast!
Life has passed me by right before my face and I practically willingly allowed it to happen.
And last night I had the fever nightmare again... the one where death murders me in my sleep as it calls me an ignorant fool for eating all that fucking salt and sugar all my life!

THE SKIN ON YOUR BODY


Prologue to: The Skin On Your Body!

The evil entity who is a serial killer has struck again.
The police have warned the public of the danger out there.
This murderer is a particularly nasty one.
The murderer wants... The Skin On Your body!

RLJ





THE SKIN ON YOUR BODY

(Kansas City, Missouri)


The skin on your body is a wondrous thing... an organ so thin, but yet so powerful!
The environmental assault on your body is kept outside of the inside by the shield that is your skin!
Even murderous microbes are kept at bay by the skin on your body... a true warrior for your survival!
But what is to be said when the assault on your skin is by a deranged human... with knives and razors... who cuts your skin off to wear as his own... what then?

Death is not a trivial matter!
Unless... you are imbued with dark power!

RLJ





A WITCH'S PARADIGM

(Wilmington, Delaware)


Patricia Duke missed breathing the most, after she died a quick death from Pancreatic cancer.
She went in to see her doctor on a Tuesday morning and was diagnosed with cancer just after noon.
And by Friday night she died in her sleep... but, she was definitely not ready to allow her soul flight.
One great caveat to being a Witch in the Horrorwalker World is... death is never final and aside from the craving for raw human flesh, "I should have done this years ago!"

THE SECRETS MARY MANGOLD KEEPS (AN EXCERPT)


Prologue to: THE SECRETS MARY MANGOLD KEEPS

Sweet natured, 
Blonde haired beautiful, 
Lovely tempered Mary Catherine Mangold is a sweet angel.
She works at the local orphanage and is beloved by all.
But when darkness falls,
And the monsters of the underworld emerge,
And Mary sneaks off into the dark night to stalk them,
They all fear... The Secrets Mary Mangold Keeps!

RLJ





THE SECRETS MARY MANGOLD KEEPS  (AN EXCERPT)

(Meridian, Mississippi)


...Mary Mangold crouched low to the wood floor in a midnight dark far bedroom of the haunted mansion!
She was hiding in darkened silence, .45 handgun gripped in both hands, silver bullets ready to kill!
 It was not noisy ghosts that inhabited this deep woods decaying structure, instead, there are werewolves!
She actually thought she would encounter vampires, not ghosts... but, what type of creature matters little to a full fledged monster hunter with frighteningly monstrous secrets of her own!...

BURIED DEEP


Prologue for: BURIED DEEP

"Where were you last week?" She asked, the sarcasm dripping from each typed word.
"Buried deep!" I answered, still wiping the crap from my very aura.

RLJ





BURIED DEEP

It took one long week of a suffocating horror setback to make my escape from my terror reality!
 I was buried way deep in cracked TV journalism bullshit and hyperbole... I was practically entombed!
I felt like I was dead and rotting six feet under the decaying dirt... decay poised to reclaim my flesh!
But I have clawed my way to the surface... of the bullshit and hyperbole... and again, I write... horror... for you and for me!

THE HUNGRY IN THE BASEMENT



Prologue to: THE HORROR IS IN THE BASEMENT 
(A "MEALS FOR VAMPIRES" TALE)

All kinds of hell can exist along the scorched streets of long decayed neighborhoods.
Inside the abandoned homes...
There is where the darker horrors exist.
Take that dilapidated ancient home over there, where...
The Horror Is In The Basement!

RLJ





THE HORROR IS IN THE BASEMENT

(Flint, Michigan)


Down in the darkness of the rotting cellar, the roaches and the ants lord over their decaying kingdom.
75 abandoned years of moist dankness draws in creatures of the night and the creatures that feed on them.
In one of the darker far corners, backed against a decaying wooden wall, sits the ominous casket!
And inside that old wooden final resting place awakens a monster in human form... and is is hungry... and tonight the blood of rats will not do... tonight is the night it hunts humans!

THE LAST THING DONNIE SAW  (AN EXCERPT)

(Fairfax, Virginia)


The thing Donnie Manning saw as he closed his eyes one last time was the image of death itself!
In that nanoseconds before the lifespark in his brain was extinguished, death touched his soul!
He felt his soul leave his body as his life essence was pulled toward the light in the distant afterlife!
And on its way out of his body, his consciousness felt true horror as it glimpsed the murderer of his body stab the knife into his heart once again!

HOW LONG CAN THE UNDEAD STAY UNDEAD

July 12th, 1821 is the day Mary Babic died from Scarlet Fever... and awoke still dead three days later!

YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS


The house music is thumping to the heartbeats of the night dancers on the dance floor.
Hookups are bound to happen on this moonlit Friday night... they are inevitable.
You better at least make an effort to know something about your conquest, though.
Because in the morning,
When the sun arises,  
You might so shocked and surprised by what you discover that you might exclaim...
You Can't Be Serious!

RLJ





YOU CAN'T BE SERIOUS

((Flint, Michigan)


What happened to Mark Lansing last night was so over-the-top crazy that he still can't believe it!
The dried blood and dust he's cleaning off his bed sheets and pillows and bedroom walls is a stark reminder!
You bring home a hot woman from the bar up the street, you chain her hands and feet to your bed as you do dirty things to her and she turns out to be a bloodlust filled vampire!
You didn't realize what she really was until the morning sun through the window burned her to ashes right there in front of you... leaving you to dumbfounded as you exclaimed, "You can't be serious!"

Most of the buildings in this city of darkness have long since been consumed by decay!

In over 159 years, I've never had a toothache or even a cavity inside my blood craving mouth!

Are vampire teeth protected by the same midnight evil that keeps me forever undead... and could a dentist even drill into my enamel... before I drank his blood?

And sometimes that history comes back home.
It might even leave you tired, a little crazy and... Just Trying To Get A Little Sleep!

JUST TRYING TO GET A LITTLE SLEEP

(Galveston, Texas)


I can hear the flutter of their little wings as they flit and dart about the tight spaces in my attic.
I don't know what they are, they hide from me when I go up there, but they never go away.
They are hungry and bestial... because they have eaten the squirrels and birds and bats that go up there. 
Two years in my attic... animal bones pushed into the corners... noisy in the attic... just a little fear in my heart... especially when I try to sleep every night and they come into my darkened room!

THE SMALL PRINT


Before one decides to dabble with a dangerous tome of unknown forces supernatural,
One had better make sure he has read...
The Small Print!

ELL





THE SMALL PRINT

(Powell, Michigan)


Lars Andersson is a learned warlock, to be sure, but he just made a terrible rookie mistake!
Yesterday, he finally found the ancient book of conjuring spells he was searching high and low for!
 Eight years later, he is standing in his prepared bedroom -- book in hand -- reading a horror spell!
When the monstrous demon appeared in a flash of sulfur smoke, and instantly grabbed him by his neck, Lars realized his fool's folly... do not read these spells out loud... as it states right there on the book cover!

A WOLF IN THE PRISON


There is blood all over the walls!
There are guts all over the floor!
There are bullet holes all over the jail cell!
Cops and prisoners died a horrible death tonight because...
There was A Wolf In The Jail!

RLJ





A WOLF IN THE JAIL

(Eldorado, Texas)


Goddamn it, I warned those fucking redneck cops that I wasn't being a smart ass boy, like they said!
How in the hell does a traffic stop turn into a ten cop beat down... and me being thrown in this jail cell!
The more I told them they would be sorry for beating me, the more they tried to beat me half to death.
And now I'm huddled in the corner of this large cell with 9 other dudes... and the rising full moon outside is burning my soul... bringing out the wolf-monster... and may god help all of these people!

A SMOOTH ELIXIR WITH A HINT OF IRON


Preparing to attack the night again, two creatures of the night first talked!
The tall one was talking to the smaller one, offering encouraging words!
They are about to stalk the night denizens!
They are about to go on the hunt for... A Smooth Elixir With A Hint Of Iron!

AWM






A SMOOTH ELIXIR WITH A HINT OF IRON

(Junction City, Kansas)


Oh, I haven't eaten solid human food in over 147 years... and I no longer have food cravings!
You're a young vampire, only 68 years old and you're still wrestling with your psychological hunger!
As you have already painfully discovered, solid flesh inside your stomach sits like a hot lead weight!
You, like me, only need that smooth elixir with a hint of iron down our gut... and the time now calls for us to hunt and to drink deep in this dark full moon night!

KICK-START THE NIGHTMARE


One cannot truly move away from what one is!
Every man, every woman, is what they are at their core!
They might pretend to move away from their core being... for a time!
But when the horror enters the situation, that will... Kick-Start The Nightmare!

AKN





KICK-START THE NIGHTMARE

(Logan, Utah)


Sleep, sweet deep REM sleep, cannot lighten the load of the waking nightmare that is Mary Schneider.
She is a long since bitten vampire who tries to sleep away her existence... when she is not on the hunt.
The guilt of all that blood and gore and murder on her hands began to eat away at her 47 years ago.
But, the reality is real... arcane powers more obscenely profound than her guilt are at work here, and when she awakens again her hunger will kick-start the nightmare to the horror once again!

THE BASTARDS OF HATRED (AN EXCERPT)


Terror and horror is not always about the monsters of fever dream nightmares!
The things that go bump in the night can be soulless, ugly humans!
Reality often presents to humans terror and horror on a shiny silver platter!
We all should know better than to believe the bullshit!
But human terror uses human horror to feed... The Bastards Of Hatred!

RLJ






THE BASTARDS OF HATRED  (AN EXCERPT)

(Washington, D.C.)


...Lock your doors, draw the curtains and polish up your guns, Americans!
The way "they" tell it on the ol' TV is, "They are coming to destroy your lives!"
The narrative is, "They are pouring over the border with their drugs and their murderous intent!"
These mongering Bastards of Hatred traffic in American terror... just like it has always been here... but now, their horror victims do not have to be black!...

WITCH'S SOUP (AN EXCERPT)


Be careful, 
Those of you who brave the night of the dark woods!
For, you can easily end up in a...
Witch's Soup!

ELL





WITCH'S SOUP (AN EXCERPT)

(Goudeau, Louisiana)


"In the darkest of night, when the dew begins to form, the old witch of the forest is wide awake!
Where, from inside, she cackles loudly, the nightwalker animals know to steer clear of her dark hut!
Inside her kitchen, a large black cauldron contains a rolling thick soup of questionable ingredients!
There are strange spices, a bat's wing,  a mouse head, a rabbit's foot, a newt's skin and the fingers of "something" that should know better than to be out in the darkness frolicking in the middle of the scary night!"

WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU


Always make sure you check those doors and windows,
Day or Night,
Before you retire to bed because that is... 
When They Come For You!

RLJ






WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU

(Akron, Ohio)


There is a saying among some deep thought people that "The dream is always the same!"
Most people dream... sparked by the wildly firing neurons in their brains when they succumb to sleep!
Others dream while awake... about what they will do with the now and then aspects of their lives!
But some do not dream... they are the zombies and the ghosts and monsters that bump in the night... and they come for the dreamers as they dream of the same!

A GOOD HORROR BOOK


There is a lot of horror out there in the real world!
And, there is the notion that a lot of horror is in the unreal world, too!
The best way to safely examine those notions is in your best lounge chair,
With some good lighting,
And with... A Good Horror Book!

RLJ





A GOOD HORROR BOOK

(Great Falls, Virginia)


A wide eyed Arjun Patel is "in-his-own-world" engrossed in the weighty tome balanced in his lap.
The pages of the book are glowing bright from the 60 watt light of the reading lamp over his right shoulder.
This is The Horrorwalker Travel Guide he is reading... and he is soaking in the horror like a sponge.
He has been reading these horror missives for three hours straight... and he is only just beginning... hello horror tales from these "50 States Of Horror!"

ON THE BACK OF MY HANDS


Before me is the signal that leads to the end of my time on earth.
The road map is right there... On The Back Of My Hands!

ON THE BACK OF MY HANDS

(Ithaca, New York)


Jessica Mae stared longingly at the blue veins under the thin skin on the back of her wrinkling hands!
She turned all of 70 years old yesterday and soon after her birthday party, reality set in!
She is the oldest of six siblings... by eight years... and, "Oh my God," She whispered to her hands.
"I am 70 years closer to discovering what death actually is... and... I'm looking at it right there in the skin on the back of my hands!"
