Hello all, I’ll update Calamity’s Keep next week with a new story. This week, with the entire world shutting down due to COVID-19, I thought I would do something nice for people out there in the form of free ebooks for Amazon’s Kindle. I’m offering three books to download for free today.
“It began with a drum. Then the monsters came. I’ve been hiding ever since.”
The following collections of journals were recovered from a caravan outside of Duluth, Minnesota. The exact date of recovery is not known nor is the origin of the speaker. The Bureau for the Restoration of History (BFRH) would like help in identifying the man who kept these records. This unedited record of events is still considered the most accurate history of the apocalypse that occurred on April 15th, 2011.
A knight becomes mutinous after a 100 days of dragon fire. A combat vet prefers the void of war to home and peace. An inhuman creature is more than capable of mercy in a haunted cathedral. A lizard and monster start a friendship in the shadow of arrows. A young woman is denied the chance to be herself. Two techs floating in space can’t remember their login information. Rats have feelings too, as this kingdom found out. Goblins aren’t as evil as the ones that hunt them. A long battle in deep space makes nightmares live everywhere. A demonic and hungry forest with a slight sense of kindness. A lonely factory would rather have purpose than nothing. A weapon survives longer than the man wielding it. A monster is going to become a father, and watches a human with the same predicament.
An eerie earthquake with a mysterious creature in the Gulf of Mexico unleashes an unknown seed onto the earth. An old man watches the long-abandoned slaughterhouse across the road gleam to life under phantom light. An immigrant working at a thrift store notices something inhuman in one of the mirrors. A stressed-out father wonders how a dead streetlight starts working under the shape of a faraway stranger. A random burst of graverobbing and disturbing taxidermy hits an old cemetery in Saint Paul. A little girl digs in the closet for a gun as her parents prepare for the drum. A pilot fights an unknown abomination on the star-edged rim of heaven and earth. A little boy counts the seconds through the sights of his rifle before the world gets walked by monsters. A woman hiking in Duluth bitterly watches the old weather patterns be imprisoned by walls of overgrown greenery. A young man plays with suicide on a deserted college campus as living death hunts him every night. A child scrounges for food in an empty restaurant till a sewn-together employee makes an appearance. Three soldiers on the outskirts of an abandoned city plot revenge on the nightmare hunting them.
Alright, well I hope that helps. Hopefully you all stay healthy and you ride out quarantine with a Long Island and some sandwiches. Thank you for reading my work and supporting me.
