“Your Nightmare” by Vampyrëan featuring Chris Pohl Review

I enjoy checking out new music blind to me. Vampyrëan was one I had not heard before.

A Solo Project

Vampyrëan is the solo project from Vlad Janicek, a former member of Nosferatu. That right away got my attention.

I am familiar with Nosferatu and really enjoy their gothic rock-infused music. I then saw that Chris Pohl from Blutengel is featured on the track. That made me even more excited to listen.

The Worst Night Terror Ever Told

It is Halloween, and what is it without a good horror story? Even better when it turns out to be real. In some ways.

Living With Night Terrors

This is it, the worst night terror ever told.

It all started when I was four years old—or so I can remember. I would have quite detailed nightmares and real to the touch it had me not wanting to sleep. Later, my grandparents raised me.

My mother even revealed to me that I would not want to sleep in daycare. I was afraid I would not wake up.

THE DEEP DARK

by: Francis J. Burns

The deep dark had come, that time between two and four a.m., when most of the world can be found clutched in the bowels of sleep. A heavy mist slithered in from the sea. Saint Theresa of the Blessed Heart Hospital was hushed. Roan settled further into his chair as he read, fleeing from the creeping chill. Beside him, Selena rested. Her breathing was slow, even, comforting in its regularity. He glanced at her every so often when the clacking of shoes on tile stirred him from his book. In the cavernous silence, the pages whispered with each turning. The story, lifted from his favorite video game series, captivated him.

Cover Reveal for Mrs. Blackwood a Second Edition

A vampire is a being from folklore that subsists by feeding on the vital force of the living. In European folklore, vampires were undead beings that often visited loved ones.

The First Print

Mrs. Blackwood was a novel I wrote to be part of an anthology that sadly never happened. As a result, I decided to repurpose it and publish the novel as my first book. Mainly, I enjoyed the story and thought it to be unique.

MRS. BLACKWOOD COMES OUT ON
TUESDAY JULY 30TH, 2019 ON AMAZON!

Two years before the writing of Mrs. Blackwood, I met Tara M. Clapper, an editor among a few I contacted and her love for the paranormal attracted me. Henceforth, Tara became my editor and worked with me on a few writing projects.

Vampire People Pt.1

A vampire is a being from folklore that subsists by feeding on the vital force of the living. In European folklore, vampires were undead beings that often visited loved ones and caused mischief or deaths in the neighborhoods they inhabited while they were alive. — Wikipedia

Greek, Polish, Egyptian…

The vampire has gone by many different names. In Greek, they are called Vrykolakas. In Czech upir, Upeer. The Polish called these creatures of the night Wampir. Myths and legends the world over have given these creatures name since the beginning of time.

Creatures that take the blood of the living to survive dated back into Greek Mythology. Also, people rising from the dead to walk among the living. Well, we need only go back to the Bible itself for such legends.

The Real Witchcraft

Not long ago, Gothic Bite Magazine asked for people to share their paranormal stories with us. Some of you answered the call and now, here are some of your stories…

I Knew Better

It was the summer of 96 or better referred to as “The Summer of Hell.” I can’t help but to blame myself; after all, I’ve watched plenty of horror movies to know all the basic rules, but even then I ignored the most important one.

I was young and curious. So attracted to anything horror. I played with a spirit board by myself, and if that wasn’t enough, I had chanted spells that I found in a spell book written in another language.

Sandman The Entity

They say the Sandman is not a ghost—that he is an entity that comes to visit you at night to put you to sleep, and bring you good dreams. There have been many myths and legends written about him.

In fact, there are also stories about how the Sandman collected the eyes of children who would not sleep. There is such a vast amount of information on him that it is hard to tell what is the actual tale and what is twisted.

THROUGH THE MIRROR
by T.A. Patterson aka EvilestGem

 


Chapter One

I enjoy doing this too much to stop, they never realize how easy it is for me and for others like me to get them when they least expect it. Now I am standing outside of his house, such a pretty family he has, men think that women would rather poison them than take a knife to their bodies.

That is not the case with me, I enjoy it entirely too much to ever stop, this man, he looks so nice, so perfect. But I have seen his lies, I have witnessed what he puts his wife and kids through, you might call me a monster, but I have nothing on this man. He is the true monster, and its my joy to bring some of that pain and terror to his door step, let him live in the terror that only I can create for him.

Sandman, A Poem

The idea of someone throwing sand in my eyes to have one fall asleep is a creepy thought. Isn’t it?

Scary Granulated Stones

There are not many monsters that scares me, however, when it comes to the Sandman I feel quite disturbed.

He comes in your room at night, throws sand into your eyes and makes you believe it’s for good dreams and yet, I used to have night terrors.

To me, growing up, the Sandman was nothing more that a dreadful evil dust merchant.
