Medusa Rises from the Dead

Karen had this idea that she would invite some of her friends over, and spend the night at the old forgotten desecrated cemetery in the woods a mile down the country road from her house. The cemetery dates back to the seventeen hundreds with many of the tombstones broken, and a sacrificial altar with blood stains on it where many unwilling participants took their last breath. More

Drac Von Stoller's imagination and fascination for the Horror genre began when he was a little boy watching his favorite actors such as Vincent Price, Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi on his little black and white television alone in his dark room. Drac would watch these horror movies for hours and build model kits of his favorite characters like Dracula, the Wolfman, Frankenstein and even the Munster's car from his favorite television series. Then as time went on and nothing was left to the imagination in the new horror movies, Drac still loved watching the old movies he so loved as a little boy. Then as Drac became an adult he decided one day that he would write a short story in the horror genre and let some of his friends read it and see what they thought. Drac's first short story was titled "Death in the Wilderness," which would be considered flash fiction but this would be Drac's test to see if he was destined to be an author. Sure enough when people read "Death in the Wilderness" they loved it but couldn't understand why Drac didn't keep on with the story but Drac knew all along that if what they read was so good then Drac has succeeded. This gave Drac the confidence he needed to keep on writing more and more short stories. The rest is history Drac has now written 186 short stories to date that have been downloaded in 147 Countries and more on the way.

I don't know about you reader's out there, but I think it's time we have another Horror TV series. We haven't had one like Night Gallery, Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt or Creepshow since the 90's and that's what my goal is a TV series. Drac Von Stoller would really appreciate any Horror fan's support. Without every reader's download and support Drac Von Stoller would not be where he is today. I just want to thank you all for any kindness you have bestowed upon me and my vision.

Here are some reviews from some of my fans from Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Tumblr and Amazon.

Drac, A number of your stories feature lavish parties with ballroom dancing in castles, and even one on a cruise ship. Do you have anything special planned for this Halloween?

This review is from: 31 Horrifying Tales from the Dead (Paperback)
I wouldn't typically purchase a horror/sci-fi genre book but a friend mentioned it to me so I bought it. I have to say that the appearance of the book is pleasing. It's well designed and lightweight so there's no anxiety about getting through a thick novel. Some stories to recommend (my faves) are "Visit from the Greys" "Phantom Miner" " The Dead Sea Captain" and "Death in the Wilderness". I don't leave reviews but something about this one so check it out!
