Amid the Recesses: A Short Story Collection of Fear (Horror)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown” - H.P. Lovecraft From the second we are conceived, there's an instinctive place inside of us all that understands danger and the signs for it. It is this inherent part of us that grips our very being to the core and radically overwhelms our minds with fear. As we grow, though, so does our imagination. We dabble in darkness, dance amid dangers for reasons of excitement, or fall absolutely to pieces as result of tragedy or emotional torment. Fear is at the head of this great personal inquisition, this path that leads us to conquest or destruction. The stories within are stories of true fear, with powerful characters and delectable twists. What path will they lead you upon?
