A great zombie story, more in the line of 28 Days than Night of the Living Dead. Likable characters and a fast paced plot keep you listening. I agree with the previous comment about that "one part" but other than that, it's a worth while story. Chiquito's voice really helps set the tone for this thriller.

One of the most glorious paths through a child's wonderland is down the aisle of a candy store, a dream world of confectionery delights that entice youthful exuberance with a myriad of colorful wrappings and sugary possibilities. And such was the delightful atmosphere at the Sweet Things Candy Emporium, where, on the sunny morning of April first, Becka Marshall opened the doors to not only her childhood dream but to the dark prospects of an unforeseeable nightmare.

From Ashes to Ashes is an entertaining story that keeps you (and your attention) on the edge of your seat. It’s ‘Fire Starter’ meets ‘A Haunting in Georgia’.

What would you do if your great-great-grandfather wanted your body - so that he could make his "beloved" live again? Everyone thinks that Julia has gone insane, "just like her father." Unable to convince anyone, she takes matters into her own hands to stop the evil plans of the revenants haunting and taking over her life, before they can resurrect their spirits into bodies and wreak havoc on the world.

On the surface, Hideous – The Revenants is a story about possession. However, it speaks volumes to the expectations placed upon us by our progenitors. A story about “the sins of the father” being the burden we all bear. I really enjoyed it and hope you will as well!

Many years ago, a young boy prophesized that one day, a great power would emerge from the mysterious woods known as Soul Wind Forest. It would descend upon the neighboring city of Eden in an event called The Falling of the Tides and, on that day, few would survive.

Shortcake is a great classic style sci-fi story with a dash of detective story. It begins with several different, seemingly unconnected storylines that weave themselves into an epic tale. It’s an Orwellian saga that warns of the dangers of meddling with genetics and the consequences of strong human emotion transforming in to even stronger supernatural powers. I highly recommend this story and give thanks to Chiquito Crasto for bringing it to life!

  • The Old Dirt Road and the Hellion

This work is intended to stand unto itself as more a living, breathing portrait of art painted with carefully chosen words, than just as a really interesting story told. The intent here is for the listener to view the landscape through the eyes of the main character, to feel what he does as he ambles along in this adventure. When the main character feels the pain and pleasures of the old dirt road, then all will only be right if the listener feels these same identical experiences.

The Old Dirt Road and the Hellion is a retrospective look back at the adventures (and misadventures) of a rural good ol' boy. The protagonist travels the road of life thinking about his misspent youth and wonders what is to come of his life. I think this tale will feel familiar to many people and definitely inspired nostalgia in me. This beautiful story is well written, well read, and well received!
