Thomas S. Flowers is an Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom Army veteran who loves scary movies, BBQ, and coffee. Ever since reading Remarque’s "All Quiet on the Western Front" and Stephen King’s "Salem’s Lot" he has inspired to write deeply disturbing things that relate to war and horror, from the paranormal to his gory zombie infested PLANET of the DEAD series, to even his recent dabbling of vampiric flirtation in The Last Hellfighter readers can expect to find complex characters, rich historical settings, and mind-altering horror. Thomas is also the senior editor at Machine Mean, a horror movie and book review site that hosts contributors in the horror and science fiction genre.

There seems to be a lot of confusion and a lack of general conversation, despite the power of social media. Reinheit was inspired from this fear I've been seeing. Fear of "the other," as it were. Mostly biased. And it reminded me of my studies on the Holocaust, where a lot of fear and anxiety of the times were levied on a particular group of people with disastrous consequences. (less)

My first novel by Tim Meyer. A fun romp with semblances of slasher flicks, Stranger Things, and a sprinkle of The Island of Doctor Moreau. Subtle hints of Lovecraft can be found as well, but not necessarily Lovecraftian, more or less "otherworldly." ...more

“But the sunny memory dissolved into the cold dark uninhabited bed. Ricky was not under the covers. Maggie touched her heart and felt the hard lump deep beneath. At least you’re here, in this hollow pit you left me with…why won’t you go away…leave me alone? I cannot stand you anymore. Please…please, just leave me alone.”
Thomas S. Flowers, Subdue Series: Books 1-3

“Why would I watch the news? Half the time it's the same old bullshit, bunch of noise, showing only the worst things they can find, and when it's political, one channel blames this guy, the other that guy, when in fact neither know their head from their ass. If you ask me, it's all just one big distraction from what's really going on.”
Thomas S. Flowers, Planet of the Dead

“Corporal Angel Boreanaz and PFC James "Spike" Marsters,”

“Rebecca uttered a low dry laugh, not facetiously, but more like a stitch coming apart at the seam. A wound opened. Her eyes were opening to a world she had denied for so long. She looked up at Frank and knew, just like in the books, hatred, real hatred is a Gollum that hides under the mountain of our hearts. It buries itself deep underground where no light can touch. And it waits. Rebecca thought of Tolkien and Bilbo and Frodo and that old grey wizard, she thought that maybe they were right. Perhaps “there are older and fouler things in the deep places of the world —in the deep places of our hearts.” And as she sat on the floor with Tom Johnson’s Glock aimed at her husband’s head, Rebecca looked into the space where his eyes should have been. She looked at what was now only darkness and felt something on the other side, something not her husband, looking back.”
Thomas S Flowers

“I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.”
H. P. Lovecraft
