Mayan Blue: Michelle Garza & Melissa Lason
Visions abound, etched deep within our psyches. Depictions of Hell that have, over the centuries of conditioning and the dominant influence of Christianity in western culture and history, taught us from the youngest age to fear a wrathful god. To be cast for an eternity into a fiery torment without relief or salvation is one of the greatest horror stories ever told. But, how many of us know of Xibalba, the Hell of the Mayan culture? Or of Ah-Puch, the Mayan god of Death who presides over all who find themselves forever in this place?
The Christian depictions of Hell pale in comparison, as you will find within the pages of this book. Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason take you on a terrifying guided tour of Xibalba. The rulers and denizens of this realm of endless, unrelenting Death have been resurrected by these two necromantic authors with such deeply disturbing clarity, that you are there, suffering the agonising torments of Dennis, Kelly, Alissa, Tyler, and their teacher Wes as they set out to meet with Wes’s mentor of archaeology, Professor Lipton.
Lipton has made a discovery that will rewrite the history books, but as fate would have it, he has opened the portal to Xibalba and fallen victim to those who have been set free. What follows is a tale of the truest horror. Mayan Blue is Michelle and Melissa’s debut novel and after reading many of their short stories beforehand, it was clear that this was a masterpiece in the making. Stifling, claustrophobic terror and hopelessness seeps from every page, every word.
This book is the truest definition of horror you can imagine, and written with such naturally terrifying description as to leave you feeling grateful that the Mayans have faded into obscurity and your sinful life will only condemn you to the playground version of the Christian Hell. Five stars doesn’t even begin to rate this tale. Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason – The Sisters of Slaughter – have arrived with a vengeance that will plunge the world of horror into its very own nightmare. One from which it may never recover.

Fangtastic Tales Of Werewolf Savagery
La Lluna Plena – the Full Moon – that beautiful and mysterious celestial body which stirs within us all those deep, dark emotions we do our best to subdue and control. For some of us, her influence runs deeper, much deeper. We all walk beneath her maddening rays, yet, while most may shrug off the notion that inside us all resides a beast – a savage wolf – there are those of us who embrace the monster within and ride that lunatic wave with abandon each time she casts her gaze upon us.
Some see it as a blessing, others…a curse. To be bitten, and fall prey to murderous urges beyond our control, or to have the good fortune to be born into the pack, or perhaps even to whisper words of spell in order to evoke the lycanthropic gift, there are more than a few ways to cast aside the human skin and let loose the wolf within. Those ways are explored throughout this collection of werewolf terrors.
Suspend disbelief, dear reader, because whether you care to admit it, or continue to live in ignorant bliss, we walk among you. We smell the blood as it courses through your veins and taste your fear on the breeze. We long to see the life drain from your quivering flesh as we gorge. Beware the Full Moon, as you are about to enter the world of the Werewolf.
