The Thirst

Rated 4.00/5 based on 4 reviews

Benjamin was growing weary about not growing old gracefully. His approaching 40th birthday is almost unbearable and to make matters worse, he runs into a girl from his past who doesn't seem to have aged a day.
She tells him that she had help keeping her youthful looks... something that Benny finds extremely alluring. More

About Eduard Joseph

Eduard Joseph lives in Cape Town South Africa and has been writing since a young age. His first book "Freaks want love too" was rejected by numerous publishers in 2005.

In 2013 he decided to go the self-publishing route and his first novel hit online stores. It was a success on until it was removed by the author due to royalty issues.

Eduard Joseph loves writing what's in his heart, and thus writes about anything from romance, comedy, horror and suspense.

"Waiting for the train" is my latest short story about a discharged soldier who is eager to be reunited with his wife. This story was an idea which popped into my head one morning, so I simply had to write it down.

I'd like to acknowledge Brian Stubbs's feedback on "Waiting for the Train". I've made the changes you pointed out, though the story was actually set in a parallel universe in which Hitler was winning. Just like many writers I prefer my work not to ring true to life due to the constraints it places on your writing. As for the grammar, please keep in mind that different parts of the world have different styles of spelling and grammar.
But I appreciate your feedback.

If it seems like I'm publishing less books than before it's because I'm not only publishing books as myself, but also publishing books aimed at adults under a pseudonym and have published 4 ebooks thus far under the said pseudonym.

I like to keep busy and get all the ideas out of my head no matter how whacky or strange they are.

I think it's important not to disclose under which pseudonym I write my adult books as I've written children's books under my real name and I want the adult books to stand alone and gain recognition independently.

As always, if you like my stories please write a review to let me know what you liked or didn't like about a particular story.

I read this book and "Trick-or-Treat" today. Two distinctively different eBooks - but both equally entertaining. I have to agree with the other reviewer of this book; "The man who refused to grow old" has breathed much needed life into the bloodsucker genre that was almost killed off by books and movies depicting these sort of monsters as romantic vampires.

One empathizes with Benny as he tries to accept the fact that he has turned into a monster of childhood dreams.

Great ending. Loved it.

Review by: Michael Hudson on May 18, 2013 :
After reading his first short story "When there is blood on the moon" I was intrigued to see what he (Eduard Joseph) had to offer next. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by his take on the immortal craze that was almost completely destroyed by the Twilight saga.

This short story goes back to the roots of immortality and just like its predecessor, this book has an interesting end.

So far the best one by Eduard Joseph yet.
