Titles By Glen Krisch
It’s all noise, until it’s not.
Sometimes the syllables connect,
sometimes with multiple iterations.
Sometimes, miracles happen, and
single notes become grander,
something bordering on scripture;
quick quips to elucidate or obfuscate.
Poetry can connect or bury.
It bruises or heals.
It’s all the same.
It’s humanity writ large.
Unless, it’s not.
The intoxication from a pint of vodka, the electric buzz from snorting cocaine, the warm embrace from shooting heroin--drinking and drugging provides the height of human experience. It's the promise of heaven on earth, but the hell that follows is a constant hunger, a cold emptiness. The craving to get high is a yearning as intense of any blood-thirsty monster. The best way to tell the truths of addiction is through a story, and dark truths such as these need a piece of horror to do them justice. The stories inside feature the insidious nature of addiction told with compassion yet searing honesty. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of accidental deaths, and some of the most incredible names in horror fiction have tackled this modern day epidemic.

But every evil has its origin. As Kip Redfield carves a path of annihilation through what remains of Chicago, he recalls a time long before the explosion of the electromagnetic pulse, a time when he spent a carefree afternoon making new friends along the very same lake shore.
Sometimes memories change the future. Sometimes memories are better off forgotten.
A stand-alone novella set in the Brother's Keeper series, readers can enjoy reading THE HOLLOWED LAND before or after the first novel in the series, ARKADIUM RISING.
This edition now includes two bonus short stories set in the same universe.
Growing up, the Grant brothers were close, but as they reached adolescence they drifted apart, taking opposite paths into adulthood. Straight-laced Jason works for a small-town newspaper. Marcus is into drugs, violence, and self-destruction. When Marcus finds salvation and sobriety after joining the Arkadium, he reaches out to his brother, wanting him by his side to record the new prehistoric era—the Arkadium's era.
Jason faces a choice: join his brother in the destruction of humanity, or die like one of the millions of innocents who will fall in the Arkadium's ascent.
Krista Forrester and her family return to her childhood lake house to say goodbye to her dying grandfather. His last wish is to spend his final days surrounded by family. It's a time to reminisce, a time for togetherness and love. But the family's return awakens both forgotten memories and the unsettled spirits tied to the land.
Sometimes memories are better left buried.
Krista never wanted to return to the lake house. She hasn't been back since Breann, her childhood friend, disappeared from the sandy beach right outside her back door. Her disappearance left behind both lingering sorrow and many unanswered questions. Was Breann a victim of a now-convicted serial killer? Will Krista and her family succumb to the evil bound to the lake house? Is Breann still somewhere close, waiting to be discovered? What are those melancholic little whispers Krista hears in the middle of the night?
Only by confronting the tragedies of the past can Krista guarantee her family's future.
