Some say Edmund was found wandering the desert as a baby, others say his mother won him playing craps, yet others say that aliens were spotted near Vegas on the night he was brought into the world.

Edmund de Wight writes fiction which has a touch of dark fantasy, some sci-fi, a smidgen of thriller and a healthy dose of horror. Many of his stories take place in worlds very similar to our own but slightly changed from our current reality.

If I'm feeling a little strapped for ideas I follow advice of much better writers them myself and just begin writing. Write ANYTHING even nonsense. Once the words begin to flow from your pen or keyboard your brain will forget its fear of the blank page and supply you with actual inspiration.(less)

The Shadow in the City

This is a short story written for a contest about movies and monsters (I didn’t win) that I published on my Patreon page but decided to also share here. The city was bathed in twilight, but then again it was always twilight until a Star arrived on the scene. Aaron Little hated the time between […]

On Writing by Stephen King
“There is a muse, but he’s not going to come fluttering down into your writing room and scatter creative fairy-dust all over your typewriter or computer. He lives in the ground. He’s a basement kind of guy. You have to descend to his level, and once you get down there you have to furnish an apartment for him to live in. You have to do all the grunt labor, in other words, while the muse sits and smokes cigars and admires his bowling trophies and pretends to ignore you. Do you think it’s fair? I think it’s fair. He may not be much to look at, that muse-guy, and he may not be much of a conversationalist, but he’s got inspiration. It’s right that you should do all the work and burn all the mid-night oil, because the guy with the cigar and the little wings has got a bag of magic. There’s stuff in there that can change your life. Believe me, I know.”
