The Ides of March are upon you!



Originally a party to celebrate Mars, God of War, the ides (or half-way point) of March took on a slightly more sinister note 2, 056 years ago, when Mighty Caesar (the salad-dressing dude) was savaged by a mob of malcontents with knives.

In honor of his ancient evisceration, I give you the following celebration of modern scare-meisters, giving it up for you.

March 14th and 15th: Ruth Barret’s Base Spirits: ‘In 1605, Sir Walter Calverley’s murderous rampage leaves a family shattered. The killer suffers a torturous execution… but is it truly the end? A noble Yorkshire house stands forever tarnished by blood and possessed by anguished spirits. Some crimes are so horrific, they reverberate through the centuries. As an unhappy modern couple vacation in the guesthouse at Calverley Old Hall, playwright Clara, and her scholar husband, Scott, unwittingly awaken a dark history. Clara is trapped and forced back in time to bear witness to a family’s bloody saga. Overtaken by the malevolent echoes, Scott is pushed over the edge from possessive husband to wholly possessed… Inspired by a true-life drama in Shakespeare’s day, this is itself a play within a play: a supernatural thriller with a historical core. Only one player can survive.’

Bryan Hall’s Whispers From the Dark:. ‘What if your hometown hid a terrible secret? What if the vintage LP you brought home was more than just a record? What if your neighbor’s pond held an evil only you knew about? What if your dying daughter’s only hope lay in a strange shack deep within the Appalachian wilderness? This collection of fourteen short stories from the author of Containment Room Seven asks those questions and many more. You won’t find vampires or zombies here – only pure, dark, unrelenting terror on every page.
