Benjamin Fouche is the author of his Gothic-horror story website, Spookinite Valley (www.spookinite.com), and the composer for his musical project, Morbus Tenebris (www.morbustenebris.com). Several events in Benjamin's early life have had an immense influence on his writing and the stories that he would write many years later. His fondest memories include his childhood Halloweens, listening to a CD entitled "Halloween Sounds", visiting the virtual haunted house website www.frightbytes.com, and going through a carnival spook house called "Gravestone Manor" at an annual fair that came through his town every Labor Day weekend. These particular times during his upbringing would everlastingly preserve his love and passion for the darker side of life. His favorite authors include Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Ray Bradbury, Bram Stoker, and Mary Shelley.
In a city of majesty and brutality, of warring races and fragile alliances, a sacred mermaid has been brutally murdered. An abomination, a soulless Arukh is summoned to hunt the killer. As the world around the Arukh drifts into war and madness, her search for justice leads her on a journey to discover redemption and even beauty in the midst of chaos.
The Mermaid's Tale is violent and brutal and haunting and beautiful. Highly recommended.

Dark Ages Clan Novel #1 Nosferatu:
An Epic Begins
It is the year 1204, and the city of Constantinople burns. For the immortal monsters who have spent eternity in it's shadows, it is both a cataclysm and a call for vengeance.
Malachite, leader of the city's Nosferatu, hunts through the ashes and dodges crusaders to find the Patriarch Michael, the vampire who founded the city is the expression of his immortal dreams. Malachite's search brings him beyond the city walls and sets him on a quest that will restore the Patriarch's dream – or damn it forever.
Dark Ages Nosferatu begins the epic thirteen part series of Dark Age Clan Novels, chronicling a vast conflict among the vampires of the Middle Ages. The War of Princes begins here.
Laiel Brockade is back. A little less pretty, a little unsteady on his feet. But despite all of that, he’s gone to war. To defeat the opponents arrayed against him demands every last ounce of the power, ingenuity, and evil that he’s known for. But nothing ever works out quite to order for the most wayward son of the Devil, now does it? A conflict of many sides, where every hand holds a dagger, and every dagger hovers at someone’s back. At last his plans come to fruition, but the fruit borne thereof is sour indeed, because by the end he’s achieved everything that he set out to do. Much to his dismay…
