Title: The Chaos Stories
Author: Charles O’Keefe
Blurb: Here you’ll find nine new short-stories, some which have been from my life, or things that could have happened. One is inspired from the many games of Dungeons and Dragons I’ve played over twenty years while another is from the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game. Some are even some from other authors, who kindly contributed to my collection.
As a treat for fans of my series, I have included six deleted chapters, two from each of the three Newfoundland Vampire novels, which have been all cleaned up and have been made better than ever for your reading pleasure.
I have also included not one, but two chapters from the upcoming fourth book in the Newfoundland Vampire series, War of the Fangs. I’ve filled this collection with tales that will make you laugh, or will scare you, and will hopefully make you think a little about the world around us and the people in it.
Review by Amber: I am giving this book 4 and a half stars. This book really does make you think and think hard about the world we are living in and our past. One of my favorite stories feature out current President, altho0ugh he goes by a different name, and how he may have been elected. Another of my favorites is the excepted story’s above about WWII and occultists. There were other stories that make you think of what the future may be and how it may not be what it seems.
The stories of the Newfoundland vampire are wonderful and now make me want to read the stories. You http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/28e4345f2457
Excerpt: “I’m not leaving you behind, no man gets left behind, GET MOVING!” Marlon screamed the last part at the top of his lungs and they bolted forward. It wasn’t easy with all the roots and holes in the ground. Larry fell once as did Marlon, painfully twisting his ankle so that now Larry had to help him but they moved on, spotting one mark on a tree and chalk on another. The mist had started to rise, it was at their ankles now.
“Mar I can’t feel my feet, it feels as if I’m running on blocks of ice. We need to get out!” Marlon looked about frantically, the trees were still thick, he couldn’t see the tall grass from where they had started this morning. Everything felt tight, his chest felt like it was going to explode, his heart felt like it would leap out through his throat at any second. The trees seem to be closing in on them, he felt like he was back in France, just waiting for the first bullet to split the air.
Marlon looked down for a second, legs are numb up to my knees but somehow, I’m moving, I don’t feel the pain in my ankle. “We’ll get out, you are the best woodsman I’ve ever seen. I know you can do it.” Larry nodded and Marlon was glad to see a small smile creep onto one side of his face, he pointed with his right arm to a mark, an arrow pointing to the east, the way they were going. You better be, he thought, I’ll be damned if I die in a forest by some mist, I made it out of the war, I’ll make it out of here!
Author Bio: get to see the characters and get a glimpse into what the series is about. Each one is detailed and draws you into the world he has created. The other authors short stories are also wonderful and blend in well with the other stories of the author. They are all along he same genre and draw you in. It made me want to check each other out and see how wonderful their stories.
