Thrilling adventures of colonial Africa from the creator of King Kong
In the jungles of West Africa, Commissioner Sanders is the highest representative of the British crown. The health and safety of a quarter-million natives -- who speak countless languages and worship untold gods -- are his responsibility. Whether disciplining a boy king, expelling troublesome missionaries, or fighting to contain outbreaks of sleeping sickness and beri-beri, Sanders and his lieutenants must be quick, decisive, and fair. The fate of the empire -- not to mention their lives -- depends on it.
These rollicking escapades, based on Edgar Wallace's travels in Africa, offer an entertaining glimpse into a world -- and a mindset -- long lost but endlessly intriguing.
This ebook features a new introduction by Otto Penzler and has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
The last thing Cole Sunger remembers is the trap door creaking open beneath his feet on the gallows of Arkwood Penitentiary. Now Cole is awake - aware - in a frighteningly dark realm populated by demonic creatures. Utterly perturbed by the horror of this supernatural locale, Cole allies himself with two other damned souls and soon learns he has arrived in Hell amidst a demon uprising.
"Abode of the Damned is gripping from the first paragraph. You get pulled into the psyche of a man who is being hanged for his crimes. The door trap door opens and fade to black... When he wakes up, he can't understand what has happened or where he is. That's when all hell breaks loose.
I have to say, for a short story, Abode of the Damned is packed with action. It pulls you along though the story, burning through its pages, dying to know what is going to happen next." -Goodreads.com
"Don't miss Matt Cole's dark fantasy short story, Abode of The Damned."
Now, dare to look inside.
In this short tale of gothic horror, the vampire, Lazarus Kalon, is on his way back to Atlanta to liberate his treasure before the city falls to Sherman's army. It is then, suffering from a prolonged thirst in the Appalachians, that Lazarus encounters three rebel deserters. As Lazarus closes in on the deserters, intending only to satisfy his thirst, he is soon overcome by a supernatural awareness that one of these soldiers may be worthy of the immortal gift.
"The Blood of Cowards is an impressive example of a successful short story, where each word is carefully chosen and each sentence fits perfectly together to compose a harmonious and powerful story."
"The story unfolds with a vivid description of the surroundings, which makes you feel like standing right next to the vampire Lazarus, hearing the gunfire and smelling the stench of war, but also perceiving the beauty of the countryside."
"Don't miss Matt Cole's dark fantasy short story, The Blood of Cowards."
A ghost falling in love with a mortal? It's just a bunch of hocus pocus...
So, I think my apartment is haunted.
Spooky things have been happening to me ever since I moved in last year. At first, I ignored them. Later, I got used to the idea that I shared my place with a ghost. I even called him Casper. We got along just fine.
Until a sexy hunk showed up the night before Halloween and told me that his name wasn't Casper -- it was Zack. And that, on All Hallow's Eve, certain ghosts sometimes have the power to cross over into the human world. Which he did, because he loves me.
I'm in love.
The only problem?
She's alive. And me?
I'm kinda not.
At least, I'm not on every day except for October 31st. Because on Halloween? Anything goes.
I want Dani. And even if it's only for the one night when ghosts can cross over to the living world, I'll take what I can get. Because I love a mortal, and it's not just hocus pocus.

The Awakeningby Edward C. Patterson(Dancaster Creative) Price verified 25 minutes ago
When deep in the soul the true self stirs and arises to remove the mask; when nature overtakes art and courageously comes out of the night into the day; when the closet opens and fills the room with light -- then we have The Awakening. Capturing the heart-soaring moment when a person faces themselves and then the world -- a brave new world, which calls forth the best and heals the lies, is a momentous time. Like the first fireflies on a summer night, to share yourself with first one person; and then another, and then those closest and those furthest until the world knows -- a world fresh and new, yet dangerous, being aware that many would prefer you live the lie. But there is only one life per customer and only one awakening of the soul. If the lie persists, life withers on the vine.
The Awakening is one man touching a new world expressed in verse. It's the spirit bursting onto the scene with green ecstasy. Through the sights and sound outside the closet, this work seeks nothing more ...

Can't get enough Slaughter in your life? Here may be the answer for your addiction.
Everyone's favorite hero has many stories to tell. Most of them are not found in epic, lengthy novels of action and suspense, but rather in shorter tales captured as moments in time. This book is a living collection of shorts. It is released in Kindle edition only. Why? Because as new shorts are added it will be released as a new edition. This means to will get a push notification from Amazon and be allowed to download the new stories for no additional purchase. We are currently on the second addition as it sits now. How cool is that?
This is my way of saying thank you to the fans of this series.
But prepare yourself. Each tale is one that will suck you in and have you racing to the conclusion. You're going to be demanding more by the time you get to the end. Good news is, in this particular format, I will be able to facilitate that request!

Even within our education system, hijacked and led to failure by national education policies and mandates, students can still escape to gain a good and effective education. Current education policies dictate each student be educated as a robot off an assembly line. This concept is contrary to reasonable humanity.
Every child is unique, guided by different nurturing, examples, social structure, dreams and aspirations. Instead of allowing and guiding students to find their natural paths to success within their perceived realities, government assigns group realities. This creates despair, and dropouts, from weaker students and disappointment from more gifted students who recognize this governmental travesty.
This book exposes and explains why government education policies fail and why education success must be achieved by interaction between children and parents. The education process is made clear by understanding the three parts of education: opportunity, conditioning, and ...
