THE LAST STOP – Ghosts, Spirits, and Specters: Volume 2

The Last Stop | TS Alan | Ghosts, Spirits, and Specters: Volume 2

“THE LAST STOP” is a bizarre and harrowing tale of a train trip gone wrong, taken by four friends as their last hurray before college. They’ll wish they never got off!

Ghosts, Spirits, and Specters: Volume 2 is second volume in HellBound Books Publishing’s popular anthology series is a superlative collection of fifteen spine-chilling, marrow-icing ghost stories that will have you hiding beneath the covers and reaching for the comfort of your nightlight’s glow.

Snippet from my story, “The Last Stop”:

Stepping off the train car and onto the platform the two were greeted by a sky that had an eerie sepia glow to it. Weston could only compare it to a scene from the movie Blade Runner 2049. He looked down the platform. Tara and Kyle were standing face-to-face...

World War Dead

World War Dead by TS Alan

PREFACE

World War Dead was never intended to be a novel. My original idea was to write five stories as short novellas — Battle of the Dead, Night of the Living Tokyo Dead, Escape from the Dead, Queen of the Dead, and War of the Dead — set in different locales around the world that would connect to each other. They would connect not only in theme but also with the characters. The ones that survived were to be in the final novella.

However, by the time I began work on the fourth story, my editor suggested I instead turn the stories into a novel. He also suggested that I not include Night of the Living Tokyo Dead because it contained too much dark comedy and no longer fit the tone of the other stories...

Silence of the Apoc: Tales from the Zombie Apocalypse

Nobody knew how it began.

Nobody knew how it would end.

All they knew was that they had to survive another day… and another night.
Silence of the Apoc: . Volume Two of the Tales from the Zombie Apocalypse series.

About TS Alan’s story:

“Yakuza Dead”

Originally intended to be part of my upcoming novel World War Dead, the dark humor of the dialog and character situations did not fit the overall theme. Tannhauser Press was kind enough to include it in their anthology as a stand alone short story .

Two rival yakuza clans and a horde of the living dead are the center point of this gruesome, action packed tale of revenge and escape, which is mainly set in a ten-story hotel on the outskirts of Tokyo.

INTRODUCTION AND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

For me, getting creative story ideas from mind to paper isn’t hard. The difficult part is stringing the words together to make logical sentences that are entertaining — then having my editor tell me to go back and rewrite it so it makes sense.

I revised this novel because at the time I did not have an editor. The final corrections were to be done by my publisher. They were not. Eventually, the rights to The Romero Strain reverted back to me. I felt my fans deserved a better book.

I want to acknowledge my associated writers at Books of the Dead Press: Julie Hut...

Whispers of the Apoc: Tales From the Zombie Apocalypse

Whispers of the Apoc | From Dead to Dust | TS Alan

Whispers of the Apoc: Tales From the Zombie Apocalypse (Volume 1)

No one knew how it started.

The world that took thousands of years to build, fell in just a few weeks. These are the stories of those who were strong enough, or lucky enough, or crazy enough to survive.

Some simply survived.

About TS Alan’s story:

“From Dead to Dust”

In my novel The Romero Strain, J.D. Nichols never discovered what happened to the seven 69th Infantry Regiment armory soldiers sent to the roof by their base commander Colonel Harland Travers. The mystery of their whereabouts was also not addressed in the sequel, The Romero Strain: The Dead, the Damned, and the Darkness.

Tannhauser Press was kind enough to include it in their anthology. In this stand alone short story — before J.D...
