Beware - this is only the beginning ...
Adam is a young preacher, with a loving wife and a child on the way. His family, his congregation, and his affinity for one particular science fiction movie are enough to keep him happy with his life. But when a new member of that congregation begins to haunt him at seemingly the worst possible moments, he begins to question the weight of his life’s responsibilities. Can he handle being “the one” – the one so many look to in times of need?
Detective Oswald Quinn is not so happy with life. His marriage has not turned out quite as happy as Adam’s, but his responsibilities have become just as heavy. The latest of these burdens have led him to the investigation of a serial killer who seems to seek perfection in the number 3.
Meanwhile, Scott seems completely unburdened by responsibility, save for his endless pursuit for a full glass at the bar. The drinks should be flowing freely on May 5, or “Cinco de Mayo”. But on this date, Scott discovers a failure much more haunting than an unquenchable thirst.
Within each DeadCade, you will find a microcosm of darkness preceding the main story but whether one hundred words or five thousand, each is definitely of its time. These tales have been written by authors from across the globe—from Australia, the USA and Europe—and from the Bram Stoker nominated to newer contributors to the world of dark fiction. In this latest anthology, you will find a real wealth of talent.
So take a trip in our time machine and travel the DeadCades, discover where the monsters hide—in our pages or in our own history.
With a foreword by best-selling author of Vox, Christina Dalcher.
A weird, raw horror novelette that'll really turn you on. From stunning newcomer RUSCHELLE DILLON.
