About this ebook

Three fears tormented my mind as a child: Nyctophobia—the fear of darkness. Teraphobia—the fear of monsters. And Sanguivoriphobia—the fear of vampires. Usually, as one grows older, such ridiculous terrors gradually subside. Yet mine only persisted. The grave events began during my boyhood. They transpired on the night of which I discovered my remarkable gift. But on that night, my three fears also ravenously and quite literally came forth into this world. As a result, I had to make a choice—and I confess, the choice I made has cost me nearly everything. For fourteen years there was a calm in my life. Alas, it was one o’ clock a.m.—the dead of night—when the late-summer wind silently declared their return to this world. Indeed, they are coming for me—and my time wanes with the dying light of my candlestick’s wavering flame.

About the author

 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.
