The Bag of Life

Rated 4.33/5 based on 3 reviews
H'anga the black African witch doctor was a devil of a priest. And he refused to let the Old Ways and his hatred of the whites go. He hated how his people willingly worked for the white plantation owners decades after slavery ended. Revenge and blood lust ravaged his mind.
Gibbs thought he had foiled the plan, but he was wrong. It was just the beginning. More

About Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson is an Australian author who lives in Brisbane with his wife and their little girl. His books blend the esoteric mysteries, science fiction, fantasy, with a dash of Twilight Zone, and a twist of dry humour. He has published numerous short stories and novels, and many more to come.

Chris Johnson's story and book ideas come from a rich background as a stage magician, mentalist, psychic, and even a computer systems programmer!

His first book, Twelve Strokes of Midnight, is a collection of short stories, steeped in twists and turns, containing threads he says may lead into his other works and even each other. Each short story in the Devil's dozen coincides with a clock strike, drawing you into the witching hour and the impending horrors watching you from the shadows. It contains Easter Eggs, just like a DVD, personal messages to friends, family, and his beloved readers.

His novel, Dead Cell, has been compared to the writing of "early Dean Koontz" for its supernatural content, and its vibrant and likeable characters working together to the final outcome.

Review by: Richard Marman on Aug. 26, 2018 :
I really like this story. It reminded me of Joseph Conrad and some of those 19th and early 20th Century authors where the narrator tells his adventures to an audience — in this case his club buddies. The tale has a spooky Edgar Alan Poe feel about it with an ending I didn't see coming, although it was the sort of yarn that could have gone in any number of directions.

Review by: Ian King on Aug. 21, 2018 :
Short, sharp and sweet! A riveting short story with a gnarly-ole' twist to it... a can o' worms (or perhaps, something larger). Can someone live for hundreds of years and never age? Can a curse turn into a sort of blessing, or is a curses blessing, a curse in itself? Tricky questions and unexpected answers lie within these pages. If you like a twist that takes some nutting out and a little magic, then this tale could be for you. Warning... don't go into the silo!
It's a quick read that will either get you running for cover, or have you entranced until the brutal end.
