This short story, Ravenous by Gerard Harrison, is about returning to the past. And maybe even reclaiming it? When he was a little boy, Richard and a childhood friend went on a group trip to a family cabin. The boys venture into the woods one evening and something happens that changes his family, and their friends forever. He's also left with a phobia of the forest and any place woodsy. Its not until Richard's friends try to break his fears that the story truly deepens. There's something in the woods, and Richard comes face to face with it, one more.
For a short story, this wasn't bad. I enjoyed it, as fast of a read as it was. It was a bit odd though, but college students are a breed of their own. From orgy-like activities (all of them swimming nude together, that's not normal for me and any of my besties), to sleeping with one another's girls, the story was weird but the action was original and refreshing.
I was hoping for a bigger ending, but I can't complain. First, it was free, and secondly it was a short story. If you like your creature-features with some crazy-weird, this is your tale. Ravenous is available, FREE on Amazon.com. Read it!

To say that I am excited is beyond measure. I am not excited' I'm more like eager, thrilled, jittery, elated, ecstatic, wired, flamed, ignited and so many more! I can't believe how close my day is.
*SciFi Movie Review
Let me state, for the record, I am not a gamer. I know nothing of the Halo games and franchise, other than when the soldiers are in their uniform, it's SICK! Unfortunately, the movie was not. My experience in the adventure was a bit of a disappointment.
Telling Stories to Appreciate the Unusual: Diversity, Acceptance and Freedom through Mythology
Like many academics, I like to think that I can write. But, we know that writing is difficult - from trying to find that initial idea to following through until you had to edit a particular section that you were particularly attached to. Writing and editing are not for the faint-hearted which is why we see so many papers full of incoherent ramblings - a constant reminder that just because we know our stuff doesn’t always mean that we can write about it. But, I believe I am luckier than most, in that the materials for my writings have been available for thousands of years and all I need to do was to collect, analyse them a bit and then retell them.
Whenever people ask me what it is that I do, I say that I’m a mythographer. I am a person who collects myths as opposed to a mythologist who studies myths in details, because although I study myths, I’m never really interested in them as stand-alone stories. I prefer to get to know different legends, appreciate them for what they are and what they symbolize, then keep searching. Sometimes these researches that I do lead to discoveries where I feel like I get to see humanity at our best and love us for it. I get to admire our bravery, compassionate wisdom and our cake-making skill – Humanity has been making cheesecakes for centuries. Small cheesecakes were served to ancient Greek athletes during the first Olympic Games in 776 BC. Therefore, eat cheese-cake, respect the ancient arts.
There are indie movies that run off your back, like ducks with water, and quickly forgotten. Then their are those that take root, leaving you to ponder the movie for nights on end? Reel Nightmare is definitely not the latter.
Set in a New England town, where aVictorian home is location for an independent film by high school and college friends. The bulk of buddies come together for their mate, to complete a three-day movie shoot, and a little memory sharing. Sadly, their production is never completed, due to unexpected guests and a series of necronominiconic events!
Found footage movies seem to be extremely popular these days, even though they really aren't. Ever since The Blair Witch Project, filmmakers have flocked to the affordable method of live-movie play. but that doesn't mean it should happen.
An undisclosed, quiet town, violent, oil-spewing creatures and a strip bar- No, it’s not the setup for a poor joke; it’s the setting for Stephen Sawchuk’s (Sucker Punch and Final Destination 5) gorey, creature feature, Peelers. Filled with terrible puns and various baseball references, this horror flick will have you chuckling and flinching from projectile… juices?
