Fans of the IN HELL series have said that the latest release, ROGUES IN HELL, is delightful. Yet what is the premise behind it? Quite simply, the reader follows historical figures surmised to have been sentenced to Hell for their heinous crimes. The stories either follow the faction wars that are happening in Hell, people trying to escape Hell, or other happenings going on. The themes for each anthology is in the title – LAWYERS IN HELL and ROGUES IN HELL being self descriptive.

So what did H David Blalock write about?

As mentioned, there are different factions in Hell who often war between themselves, not to mention those inside the factions plotting to get out. H David Blalock chose to explore the idea of the two Egyptian magicians who faced off with Moses and their scheme to escape hell – by leaving the Egyptian Hell and breaking into the Chinese Hell to get a Key from the Demon Guard there and using it to get out. Assigned to stop them is a Chinese General, but can he succeed?

Sound interesting? If that is not to your liking, there are other stories that are mentioned in several favorable reviews that might be more your taste.

Indigo Mosaic Publishing is a budding Independent Publisher with a few books in its library thus far. Its latest release, Mytherium, promises to be a lot of fun!

Teaser from Lulu.com:
“A varied collection of short stories, ranging from love stories right through to horror, with a delicious smattering of humour to balance it out. Meet our werewolves, vampires, gorgons, unicorns, trolls and many more inside our Mytherium.”

Speculative fiction writer Herika R Raymer is delighted that two of her short stories, ‘Clash’ and ‘Believe’, made it into the anthology.

‘Clash’  is a story of a small town plagued by gruesome murders. The nature of the grisly scenes prompts a resurgence of legendary tales among the townsfolk, because it is easier to believe in a mythical nightmare being responsible than one of their own. Or are the stories not too far off the mark?

‘Believe’ follows a person who loves debunking myth who encounters siblings who embody all that should be impossible. Myth was told to explain what is now just natural and medical science, right? There is nothing supernatural or paranormal in the modern world. Or is there?

Remember in school when students were taught that there were three viewpoints of writing: first-person, second-person, and third-person? The two voices which dominated much of required reading material was in first- or third-person, so what happened to second-person? It is often avoided, but there are those who would like the presentation.

Enter Mandi M. Lynch of Ink Monkey Press, who decided to revive the second-person voice in her new anthology ‘You Don’t Say!’. A collection of stories written entirely in the second-person, it has the potential to drive some English and Literary teachers a bit crazy. However, that is the draw. Ms. Lynch wanted something unusual, and has found a delightful selection of stories that met her criteria.

From CreateSpace:
You Don’t Say is an anthology of stories written in second person, where “you” is the main character and “you” is the narrator. Writing in second person allows a reader to step into a story and feel as though they’re right there in the action.
