The tale shows that aspect of Stockton's genius that is inclined to the whimsical and chimerical, as well as the mechanical turn of his invention."< Less

BLOOD TRUST By Walker Jackson
eBook (PDF): $1.50
(2 Ratings)
Emetic horror. Blood Trust, a group of seven cold blooded murderers meet at haunted Chimerical Manor to confess their killing stories. Thus, seven horrifying stories await you; however, when McTrite... More > joins, he tells his. Manor owner and Trust organizer Benson Ballard is also a haunter. "I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat," said Edgar Allan Poe. Since his after-spirit is an honorary member of 'BLOOD TRUST', a brief excerpt taken from his 'The Devil in the Belfry', seems a befitting introduction. When I fly-off on tangents, please forgive me. And, if my images seem beyond belief, accept them as intended, to entertain. Eat your heart out Stephen King. Rave: I'm about half-way through Blood Trust and am enjoying it thoroughly! While I didn't find McTrite as engrossing -- as I'm not much for the genre -- it, too, was well-written. The very idea of Blood Trust is interesting, and you capture the characters well.< Less
