HOME INVASION

So my wife tells me one day that she wants me to write a story that she would like. One where the main character is a female that doesn't take any crap from nobody. One where she comes out on top after conquering some very bad people. I figured she was having a very bad day at work and needed some cheering up. So I introduced her to Joan. I needed a tough name for a woman. Joan is tough, strong minded, a warrior (Joan of Arc.) and  not to mention she has special abilities capable of getting her out of certain jams. One of my favorite movies is TAKEN with Liam Nelson. After talking to some bad guys on the phone to try and locate his daughter who'd been taken by some thugs in a foreign country for a sex ring Liam tells the thug on the phone "I have a special set of skills and I will find you and I will kill you." I love that line, always have. In fact I'd probably  put it right up there with Clint Eastwood, "Go ahead. Make my day." My wife read this book and loved it so I didn't make too many changes to it. Joan and my wife are best friends now and all of us live happily together.She loves her and I'm sure you will too.




How far will a woman go to save her home?

MUTATOR



Here's one for you folks to give a spin. Hold on tight as you take a trip with Gary Fry as he sends you into a galactic spin in this cosmic tale of terror. I found this story to be a lot of fun as I traveled with his character, James and could feel his uncertainity at his discovery. His smooth literary writing style fits well with the story as he weaves a wonderful unusual creature.

No. I'm not going to tell you about it because to me that was one of the surprises. You'll have to read it for yourself.  But there is a very subtle hint in the beginning.

As we are shown the horrific acts the creature is capable of there is a little switch-a-roo in the second half of the tale which I thought was excellent. I actually began to feel sorry for the creature. Seems there is something different at stake here as we travel with James along with his studies.

Very nice. Very nice in deed.

This is not a chomp chomp chomp, guts flying everywhere, eating innocent folks, swallowing' em whole type of tale. I found this to be a light, kind-hearted tale which was very nice.

Of course all good horror tales have a good ending and this one sure did. The ending made me laugh and I thought 'you sneaky dirty dog you.' This story makes for excellent reading late at night with the lights dimmed and the only sound is the soft rythmitic ticking of the clock.

Shhhhh....

Something is coming.

Best be careful.

But don't you worry. You're gonna be okay. Really you will. Cause you're gonna love it.
