I'm a temperamental American author, still trying to figure out many things and making many mistakes along the way. More books to come. Thank you for your time reading my writing and tolerating my irritating and often irrational nonsense.
As for the Cadaver Mundus saga...
Inspired by Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Cadaver Mundus is the name of that universe of dreams that weaves together the nightmare of descent and redemption of humanity through Frankenstein's madness through dreams of his night terrors. Each chapter of each book is a dream while each book is a fitful night of sleep to form a giant tale of inner madness and struggles of the mythical man that brought the dead back to life.
But the best way to understand is to read. Dreams and nightmares cannot be explained, but rather felt and experienced.
The nightmares as odd and improbable to an early 19th century scientist's mind, they represent the fearful fate of humanity's future, should his resurrected beast live and breed. These are visions of mad man hunting down his creation to the ends of the Earth.

This title pulled me in! It reminds me of a story I wrote at school about killer brussel-sprouts.
Anyway, this story here is strange; I think it has a good, if bizarre, idea behind it, and the last line is an interesting - but badly executed - twist ending. The author has an occasional good turn of phrase [sentences like "The sweet taste of the blood dances on his tongue."], but the writing is haphazard, with simple errors throughout. Also, it doesn't seem to know what tense it's in, and I found it in general to be clunky and difficult to read.
A nice idea, but needs work.
