Devils: A Collection of Devilish Short Fiction
Devils is a collection of devilish short fiction from the mind of horror writer Erik Henry Vick, comprised of four novellas and one flash piece. Included in this edition is a four-chapter preview of Erik’s next novel, Errant Gods.
Come, step inside the dark passageways of Erik Henry Vick’s mind. Come meet his friends, devils, one and all.
Robert is a war hero on his way down. Addicted to cocaine, wallowing in guilt, he meets a beautiful woman with the quirky habit of telling everyone she’s the devil.
Rick Bergen learns the true cost of revenge when he enters the world of the voodoo pantheon and meets the manifestation of vengeance.
Rena is kidnapped by polygamist extremists bent on creating an army for the apocalypse—by any means necessary.
An ancient evil has returned to stalk the shores of Lake Seneca. A colonial New Yorker, with the help of an Onondowaga warrior, must confront beings that can’t be killed or reasoned with.
A man is trapped in Rochester, NY by a massive snowstorm, but if he doesn't make his appointment in Buffalo, his entire bloody itinerary will be in jeopardy.
Mind your step. Don’t attract these devils’ attention.
“With imagistic prose and a keen eye for exposing his characters’ deepest fears and flaws, Vick takes no prisoners as he guides you through a landscape of demons so dark and decadent that you’ll recognize it immediately. Even more remarkable, he exercises a tremendous reserve, steering clear of the cliches and shopworn tropes of the genre to bring us something much more honest… and much more chilling. A phenomenal debut that will haunt readers for years to come.”
