Death God antagonists are portrayed as villains, further popularising the view that Voodoo is centred around death and necromancy.
Here in Bones, we looked to explore some of these tropes in five-hundred-word stories.
So, adorn your top hat and tattered tuxedo, get cosy in the armchair, and enjoy twenty-six dark tales, inspired by the movies.

Dark Magic is a collection of over two hundred bite-size drabbles of dark fantasy and horror.
Enter a world of curses and creatures, the hideous and the hexed, where love is cruel and victory is tainted. Where gods and demons hold sway over mortals, senses are enticed and spirits ensnared. Angels fall, dragons rise, shadows hide secrets and power comes from blood and bone and death itself.
What if the curse of magic could destroy the world?
Delve into this anthology featuring seven gripping tales set within worlds of magic.
In a world where humans have been pushed to the brink of extinction and only witches and rogues have the skill to take on the demon hordes.
A set of fairy twins born with only one functional wing, explore just how far one will go to get what they've always desired.
To prove his loyalty, Morgan must sever the hand of Graft Agoseris, the most bloodthirsty enforcer on the island and, more importantly, the father of his first love. Death in all families is inevitable, and Morgan must make the final choice between them.
Experience love and loss, death and wizardry as worlds are rent asunder. Join us on this journey of deadly magic, non-stop action, and adventures to new and exciting worlds.
Evil is rising, and hope is almost lost. Will anyone be able to stop it?
