This tale was so spooky and Lovecraftian- any Horror Lover will fly through this! I was lucky enough to receive The Dead Shift, by John Llewellyn Probert, through LibraryThing.com I'd like to have this on my bookshelf, but I won the ebook. I'll have to check into this one in it's physical form.
The story is about things from the lower bowels of Hell wanting to press into our dimension. How do they do it? By taunting us simple mortals on the nearest plane of existence. Through the blood-filled pages of a book, and sheer, evil determination!
Tell me if you've heard this one before: A man is brought to a UK Emergency Room, suffering a self-inflicted injury. He uses his blood to create a diagram onto the floor of his side room that opens and forces him into another dimension while other- unworldly things, for lack of a better word, escape into ours - transforming the hospital into a doorway, and feeding ground for the hellish & grotesque!
No? You haven't heard that before? LOL
I love monsters, creatures undefined and deadly, man-eating and morphing plants! This ebook was a true nightmare. Dead Shift takes place in Northcote Hospital, a pretend facility, maybe South England. It started out describing a man on a bloody mission and how he found the mission, and it's dark and ends terribly for everyone nearby.
The story places the reader in Northcote Hospital's ER, where the usual is taking place, other than the guy who managed to get a Spiderman figurine stuck up his rectum! But when the mangled body of a young lady rises, and tentacle-like things with razor-sharp teeth rip bodies apart- nothing is normal again!
Dead Shift is a ride like no other and the things you imagine them seeing and running from is totally detestable! It was a HUGE change of pace for me and returned my hunger for more! I signed up with The Horrific Tales Publishing Team and hope to receive more ebooks from them directly! They even offer a free ebook for signing up. You may want to get on that, if you love horror as much as I do. While you decide, I'm off to the next book. Cheers!📚
