My mother once said to me that if a woman's life were to be a book it would contain two chapters: before marriage and after marriage. This is what my mother has known life to be. I carry her words and stories with me because they constantly remind me that a woman will overcome any adversity, not because she can but because she is meant to. For many years, I planned to write a collection of poems embodying my mother's life experiences. I was held back because I didn't possess the courage to put her experiences into poetry. But years later, I've managed to do so because I have realized that writing does not require approval, but it does require honesty. In Arabic, my mother's name translates to victorious or successful. I have titled this poetry book Victory because, for me, my mother has managed to be victorious in all phases of her life. Although she will beg to differ, I know that no other woman would be able to endure both the happiness and sadness that my mom has so openly accepted ...

The old bundle of papers flew out the decrepit drawer -- a drawer that was a piece of an abandoned building that once housed afflicted minds. The bundle was held together by two rubber bands that had seen better days. As I removed the bands and unrolled the pages, specs of dust escaped with the urgency of prisoners fleeing from a life sentence. Some pages were written with pen; others with pencil. The letters had been smeared by the tears of time, but I could still tell they have had the same father: the hand of an individual seeking a sanity that eluded him.

Hilariously irreverent and disrespectful, The Devil's Day Job is a divine comedy starring Jesus, GOD, and Lucifer like you've never seen them before.
In the modern world, Lucifer has issues. If you think you've got a complex, imagine living for eons with "the devil" as your cuddliest designation. All the while your brother, the savior of man, and GOD's favored son (as is written) wins the family's fantasy football league every year. That'll give you a GODdamned complex.
It isn't all bad, though. Going by "Luck" in the modern era, the devil still meets up with his only begotten brother for weekly coffee. With centuries of therapy under his belt and a bewitching love interest entering the scene, afterlife was finally looking up for Old Scratch.
The devil always gets his due.
And so it came to pass that the immortals, Adam and Eve, begat yet another garden variety, world-ending scheme against Afterlife Industries. The duo that brought you the original victim complex teams up with a ...

This story is placed under my authorship, though technically I did not write the following words and was merely the person who found them.
On the thirteenth of August my girlfriend and I went for a day trip to Creswell Crags, a limestone gorge on the edge of Nottinghamshire that is home to a multitude of accessible caves that once housed primitive humans some 10,000 years ago. We'd decided to visit as a recent discovery of apotropaic marks, ancient markings used to "turn away" evil, was being showcased to the public. As we parked up, we noticed a car parked on a strange angle, somewhat hidden by overgrowth with smashed windows. Catherine, my girlfriend, didn't want to inspect it further and a part of me wishes that I'd listened. The car itself was completely empty except for the notebook placed on the front passenger seat. Catherine, again being cautious, wanted to leave it there but I've always been super curious and I hoped to unearth some great mystery, like in a video game or ...
