Eternal Night: Gothic Tales of the Macabre and Dark Fantastic

About this ebook

Insanity. Such an exceedingly over-opinionated word used by the so-called sane. But what truly is this phenomenon we shun without deliberation? Why does this word invoke fright and foreboding? Perhaps your irrational civilization is to blame for the fearful emotions you deem instinctual. And contrary to your unsophisticated preconceived notion, there are many tales within these pages that will, perhaps, persuade you that madness can bestow upon special individuals a wondrous gift. Hearken! For a mortician became enlightened—an innkeeper realized his purpose—a horrid presence on the earth was slain—and the rites of the forsaken were conveyed. Yet this is merely a foretaste of what awaits you. Leave now or embrace the gift I offer you in this realm of nocturnal eternity.

About the author

Benjamin Fouche is the author of his Gothic-horror story website, Spookinite Valley (, and the composer for his musical project, Morbus Tenebris ( 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, 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.
