When Henry and Claire try to return Brownie, a deer Claire nursed back to health, to the woods, they get lost. That's only the start of their trouble. This novelette is pumped full of hillbilly kidnapping, ancient gods, sacrifices and swords, and an ending that is sure to stick with you. More
Henry just wants his garage back. Well, he wants his wife back, too. He lost both six months ago when Claire helped an injured deer on the side of the road. In went the deer and out went the BMW. Their marriage went on hold to save what some would consider a damn good meal.
But the day has come to return everything back to normal. The deer is healthy and Henry and Claire spend a quiet spring morning releasing it in the woods. Serenity soon turns to terror as they realize they are lost in the labyrinth of the forest with no food and hardly any water.
Food and water are the least of their worries. In these woods a long forgotten god is worshiped. Its followers believe in sacrifice, and Henry and Claire have stumbled into their dark world.
“Erik Williams. Underline that name, put it on the fridge. Erik Williams is the genuine article. If you liked DELIVERANCE, you will love BLOOD SPRING. The writing is crisp, the story compelling and just as terrifying as James Dickey’s masterpiece. Highly Recommended!” —Gene O’Neill, author of DOC GOOD’S TRAVELING SHOW
“Erik Williams delivers a bloody good tale that will keep you from venturing deep into the forest anytime soon. Unflinching. Unforgiving. Blood Spring is a cinematic yarn not for the faint of heart...or stomach.” —Fran Friel, Bram Stoker Finalist and author of Mama’s Boy and Other Dark Tales
