Book Announcement: Ground Zero by Nicholas Ryan

GroundZeroCoverSAWI have previously interviewed author Nicholas Ryan about his upcoming novel Ground Zero.  The wait is over to own this incredible story.  It has become available on Amazon today as an ebook, but will soon be available in paperback.


When the zombie apocalypse sweeps across the eastern states of America, Jack Cutter is the man least likely to last beyond the first few minutes. Dealing with the recent tragic deaths of his wife and child, Cutter is forced into a desperate struggle for survival – and for redemption. Everything Cutter came to expect from life is torn away and turned upside down so that all he has left is his instinct and a sense of fate that compels him on his journey.
The action is frantic and terrifying as Cutter slowly discovers the cost of staying alive is dealing with his guilt and accepting responsibility he can never be prepared for.
‘Ground Zero: A Zombie Apocalypse’ is a real story with real characters that readers will cheer on until the final shocking twist.

140 Fiction: Dark, Original, and Uncut

There is a new breed of horror fiction popping up on twitter and it’s called 140 Fiction.  140 Fiction is just as it sounds, horror fiction in 140 characters.  Each 140 character story comes together to form a longer story, at least it does in most cases.  I have recently read some original 140 Fiction by @cultmetalflix.  His stories are very original and very dark.  I will warn you, there is a lot if adult content and sexuality in his stories.

I am all about the originality of these stories, and I have been granted permission to share some of it with you.  Again, reader discretion is advised.

This story is a “10 parter.”  I will post the pieces of the story in order along with a link under each part where you can find each original post on twitter.

In 15 years of marriage His wife pleased him in every way,but one.He Traveled alone once a year,4 business,His pleasure.

Again his “Supplier” delivered everything precisely as promised.The lithe form draped in white sheet upon the cold emotionless slab of metal
(Original Post)

Quivering with childlike excitement He lifted the weightless sheet.Slightly blue, pale and chill 2 the touch.Fresh, not a movement for days.
(Original Post)

His belt make the slightest sound as pants hit the sterile floor.Erect He pulls his prize toward him.Squeek as lifeless flesh and metal rub.
(Original Post)

Sheet fully removed the object of morbid fetish is revealed.Unable 2 contain Himself hands explore the Forbidden.Penetration exquisite.
(Original Post)

Tenderness turns 2 brutality as the moment of climax nears.Kneading livid flesh He surveys His treasure,lifting the stiff neck..movement..
(Original Post)

Hips grinding,loins burning 4 release.A question arises soon 2 b dismissed.Proposterous!..Faster..Closer..Eyes flicker open..
(Original Post)

Panic electrifies as lower extremities tighten a vise like grip.Writhing,twisting cursing,violence unleashed upon the once inanimate..
(Original Post)

Slipping,losing position.Intense pain as knees collide with unyeilding steel.A smile breaks dead flesh.Guillotine like grip bars His escape.
(Original Post)

Hemorrhaging profusely the room spins.Severed,He crumbles in a tangled sweaty, naked chaotic heap.Life ebbs away.The cold smile remains.”

In my opinion, this guy has great potential and is definitely original and talented.  Give him a follow on twitter for more 140 Fiction.
