When he's hit rock bottom, Trav Ford shows up, courtesy of their record company and a producer who wants to see what Mackey can do if he doesn't flame out first.

A Stake in Murder

Novel: A Stake in Murder
Author: Donald Allen Kirch
Publisher: Double Dragon Publishing
Genre: Paranormal/Horror
Rating: Mature due to violence


Captain Darren Matheson, of the L.A.P.D. Homicide Division was a pleasant enough fellow. But when the FBI uses him to track down news reporter Sebastian Hemlock as a "special investigator" he understandably is curious. Hemlock, learning that he had failed with his original killing of an undead creature, seeks a chance to redeem his integrity as well as gaining back the woman he had once loved. Captain Matheson thought the whole case as nothing but a waste of time. He had a murderer to catch!

Sebastian Hemlock had once been a respected news reporter. "Mister News" is what they used to call him. If there was a story to be found out, he usually was the one who uncovered it. That was until Phoenix, Arizona.

In 1991 the police were working on a series of murders. The victims were all drained of blood, the officials were not talking, and Hemlock soon discovered why. The killer was a vampire! With only his FBI friend to assist, the reporter went ahead, investigated, and tracked down the killer to destroy it.

Hemlock was soon betrayed!

After the vampire was laid to rest, Hemlock was shamed, fired, and couldn't get a job anywhere. His best friend turned on him, his girl left, and he was reduced to a tabloid job in Kansas City, Missouri.

Now...the vampire has returned!

We tell our children that there are no such things as monsters. We comfort them with the knowledge that we will always be there to protect them. What happens when we are proven wrong?

The Uncertain Cuckold

The Uncertain Cuckold is an explosive, erotic tale of domination, humiliation, submission, sharing and denial. 

Matt encourages his beautiful and seductive fiancĂ©e Jill to sleep with an older, sophisticated man, named Gary. Matt has just one condition for Jill - he must be allowed to watch it happen. But no sooner do Jill and Gary begin kissing and undressing when she reveals a bombshell - she's booked a taxi to take Matt away for the evening. 

Jill discovers a part of herself she never knew. In submitting to another man, she has unleashed a fire of control on her husband-to-be, teasing and torturing him until he can take no more. She insists on seeing Gary again, the following weekend, with more plans in tow, conceding only that Matt can come along to watch, and perhaps to join in. Aroused but uncertain, Matt submits. 

Jill feels alive, propelled on a journey of discovery, both of self and of seduction. It is a journey she wishes to explore again and again... Despite Matt's growing protests, and his own unfolding, erratic and somewhat promiscuous behaviour.

"Something More Than Blood"


Returning home from the funeral of his last, oldest friend, character actor Johannes Fassbinder falls asleep and is awakened by someone he saw at the funeral-- a young woman who handcuffs him, points a gun filled with silver bullets at him, and asks him if he is guilty of murdering her great-grandfather, and if so, why he did it. His answer involves telling her his life story... which involves garlic, secrets, mist, Berlin, Yiddish, old-time radio shows, Broadway, revenge, and a lot of Hollywood B-movies... And blood. A lot of blood. But blood, by itself, is never enough...

"Something More Than Blood" is a well-crafted, fast-paced story of a fresh-faced young German farm boy who volunteers to serve his country in the Great War, and get a lot more - and worse - than he bargained for. In the process of going from naive young "soldat" Johannes Fassbinder to becoming an undead B movie actor - stage name Lykan Fuller - we follow a man who wanders through some wild and weird places - Weimar Germany, Depression Era USA, Hollywood - and copes with his unsought fate while surrounded by people who often seem less human than he is.

The writing is tight, the dialogue crisp, the settings pitch-perfect, and the plot compelling. Park Cooper and Barbara Lien-Cooper have written a vampire tale with lot of chills, but also sad insights, and a few chuckles of recognition along the way. I enjoyed it, and you will, too. It's a welcome addition to the horror bookshelf.
