THE GATEWAY, a collection of three short horror stories, is live on Amazon!
You can purchase The Gateway for $0.99. Here’s the description from Amazon:
An imaginative boy discovers that the gateway for all evil has been opened, and his neighbor has been possessed! The fate of the whole world, or at least his neighborhood, is in his hands now. He must act to destroy the Gateway.
A 1500 word short tale of horror.
Contains two bonus stories:
America’s Pastime – a 1300 word short horror story, &
Hot Spot – a 700 word short horror story (dedicated to Dale Vincent Schwitalla)
It also contains an afterword which is sort of a tribute to the person who that last story is dedicated to. To make a long story short, Dale Vincent Schwitalla, known online as “Vinnie”, was a terrific writer of short horror fiction. I always believed his stuff was professional quality in all aspects of his writing. He was published in a handful of online magazines, but was one of those writers who never really loves what he’s written (I think). I depended on Vinnie for critiques of many of my short stories, and had a ton of respect for him as a writer. Hot Spot was written in response to a story Vinnie had written about a serial killer, titled The Butcher. As far as I know, that story is long gone. My own story was originally titled The Baker. Vinnie wrote the logical third story, called The Candlestick Maker, and we had ourselves a nice little trilogy of loosely related stories.
I lost touch with Vinnie when Delphi sort of faded away, and an internet search years later found an obituary for him. Apparently Vinnie had passed away in a motorcycle accident. His family lost a husband and a father, and the world lost a very talented and imaginative horror writer. So Hot Spot is dedicated to Vinnie.
