Press Release: Crimson Dusk (New Book)

Posted on

As Halloween on October 31 approaches, I am currently in the final stages of preparation to publish my newest book, which is a work of supernatural horror/post-apocalyptic fiction. The book is called Crimson Dusk, and it has been in the making and on the creative back-burner for some time now, but I feel it is now the time to finally release this book for all to seen and read.

The Faustian Grail

Posted on

Since the early 16th century, a tragic and sinister story has weaved its way through western culture and even today in pop culture and science—the legend of a man who makes a pact with the devil and then has to come to terms with the contract he signed. It’s the legend of Johannes Faustus. Faustus makes a deal with the devil to gain more intellectual enlightenment even though he is at the top of his intellectual […]

Mythical Drabbles

Posted on

I wrote these three really, really short stories or what is known as “drabbles” some time ago, but not in the strictest sense since they don’t amount to exactly 100 words but nevertheless they are short and focus in on different myths. The first one is my take on the Hymn of the Pearl. The second is based on the myth of Apollo, and the third is based on the Passion of Sophia story that […]

The Shadow Lurks: The Vampire Archetype

Posted on

The vampire archetype is hardly one fit for introduction since they’re all the rage nowadays. It has remained a steadily popular and tired figure that has resurfaced in one form or another through various media, especially nowadays, reflecting the nihilistic mood of not only the country but the world at large.  The most common characteristics of the vampire itself include being a “reanimated” corpse that is only active at night and nocturnal in the day, […]
