Explore the world from the perspective of Anthony Raby in this chilling and thought-provoking collection of his fiction stories and intriguing poetry ... GENIUS!

SHE LANDS, CAUTIOUS AND ALERT. The silence is oppressive and tangible; thick as blood. She stalks forward, drawing her rapier and a dagger with nary a rasp. The moonlight gives a luxurious silver glow to the headstones and creates deep voids of shadow. She knows her quarry; her predator could lay in one of these dark pools. She picks her walk among the tombstones and comes to the crypts. The shadows deepen here, and she pauses a moment. She glances around, tracing every small sound. Her nostrils flare to sense a smell out of place. She continues moving through the paths between the crypts until she is in front of a particular one. Its light gray stone sharply contrasts with the dark iron door, like a portal of darkness amidst walls of light. The family name sits above the door, a proclamation and a silent witness. She knows this one. She turns the handle and finds the door opens, easy and silent.

"Hello there, little one," says a voice from the past and nightmares.
