Let's face it, everyone loves free stuff. And I love writing. I have plenty of novels and novellas in me (a lifetime's worth), but I also love the art of the short story. My first introduction to sci-fi, horror and fantasy was through the short stories of fellow Brooklynite wordsmith Harlan Ellison. His incredible and stirring tales like I HAVE NO MOUTH AND I MUST SCREAM, THE BEAST THAT SHOUTED LOVE AT THE HEART OF THE WORLD and REPENT, HARLEQUIN SAID THE TICKTOCKMAN stirred my young imagination and made me pick up pen and paper (he even wrote my favorite episode of "Star Trek" THE CITY ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER, even though he despised Hollywood).
Here is where you'll be able to find my free works. TOTALLY FREE ALL OF THE TIME! In addition to short stories, I will have free ELECTRIC COMICS and free FLASH FILMS (you'll find out exactly what these are later on).
Why the astronaut theme? Because, what better image to represent a future so bright I have to wear shades than an intrepid astronaut navigating the infinite cosmos? Like Outer Space, digital entertainment on the Internet is also a new frontier. And I find that exciting as hell.
a short story
This is not the story you think it is. Upon reading the above title, images of Victor Frankenstein manically sewing together the body parts of corpses to make a mate for his monster spring to mind. But this is far from that. In Mary Shelley’s novel, a guilt-ridden Victor never completes this grizzly task. It was left to Hollywood to bring a female monster to life. That’s not what this story is about. I’ve written the first part as a missing chapter to Shelley’s original work. It takes place after the events of Victor’s wedding night during which the vengeful monster strangles his bride Elizabeth Lavenza. It takes place before Victor goes to the ends of the earth seeking to destroy his creature at the Arctic Circle. My story is about Victor’s successful attempt to bring his wife back from the dead. Well, you can judge for yourself if it’s successful or not. The woman returns to the realm of the living. But is she the same Elizabeth? Did Elizabeth’s soul return to her mortal vessel? Or did something else come back? Something with unnatural strength, prolonged life, and unseemly appetites. The rest of this story takes place over a hundred years later. Elizabeth Lavenza Frankenstein has returned to her family villa in Italy to live in seclusion. The year is 1938. Adolf Hitler, obsessed with the supernatural, has dispatched soldiers throughout the world to hunt such treasures. One day an SS officer shows up on Madame Frankenstein’s doorstep with a squad of Nazi soldiers. And he seems to know her secret. But just who is the hunter and who is the prey? Read on and find out.
Guaranteed to leave you chilled to the bone!
