For five days, from Saturday October 4th to Wednesday October 8th, my fantasy short story “The Illuminations” is available for free download on Amazon.com here. Stop in and pick up a copy. Here’s what it’s about:
Members of a rock group hiking in the Himalaya discover an ancient manuscript which gives them clues on how to compose songs to unlock within themselves the spirits of certain beasts. When they sing the songs they realize to their horror that they cannot control the spirits.
It’s part of my short story collection “Fear or Be Feared: Fantasies” which is available on Amazon here. Here’s a description of the collection:
A teenage girl climbing Mount Olympus with friends becomes possessed by an ancient Greek god who uses her as an instrument of vengeance.

During the British Raj an American reporter discovers a hidden valley in the foothills of the Himalaya ruled by a lovely but sinister woman who may not be human.
In these fourteen weird, surreal, frightening, and fantastic tales, unwary people discover that the world is very different from what they imagined.
