The Taste of Blood

The taste of blood

Ryan Mecum in Zombie Haiku says, “Blood is really warm, it’s like drinking hot chocolate but with more screaming.” He’s right about the screaming, but I find blood is more like coffee, good to the last drop….

If you enjoy horror stories. try:

Billy Wells Horror Anthology I is a compilation of my first two books, Black As Night, and Shivers and Other Nightmares. It includes 62 stories in the horror/thriller genre with surprise endings. Most of the stories might be considered flash fiction since the majority are relatively short. I am proud of both books, and in my view, each book stands on its own and contains stories with compelling plots and twist endings. The stories include many of horror’s popular monsters such as the vampire, werewolf, troll, tooth fairy, devil, boogeyman, witch, ghost, devil, zombie, ghoul, warlock, and a host of maniacs and serial killers. Some stories combine the gruesome and humor, and some are heart attack serious.
