Imagination Unleashed Tidbit
(Not associated with any novel I am writing)
I was moving down the deserted streets heading towards my destination, a worn out warehouse about a quarter mile away. This isn’t an area of the city anyone should be traveling through at night. Composed of old barely standing warehouses where businesses on their last legs were trying to hold on. Yet my task required I meet my contact at the warehouse in the dead of night in this decrepit area. I had passed a somewhat less worn down area a dozen blocks back where there were a few scattered people moving along on their own personal business. It was during that time I spotted a swiftly moving shadow that ducked into the darkness surrounding the buildings. After awhile I knew I was being followed. Not a good sign. It appears someone has made me a target for robbery or worse. Dammit I don’t need this headache. Not now. I was now a few blocks away from my destination. I couldn’t reach the warehouse with this criminal on my trail. Rounding a corner I ducked behind a large debris pile waiting for my guest. Then a strange feeling overcame me as I spun around quickly. There standing less than a dozen feet from me was a man. Dressed all in black there was something strange about him. How strange I soon found out as he moved a few feet closer into the meager light from the moon.
“Human you spotted me awhile back. You should have sought refuge in the church you passed. There you would have been safe from me.”
“Human?” I thought.
“I would have hunted my dinner elsewhere, but that is no longer an option. Unfortunately for you.”
“What?” I asked.
In response to my question I saw the man’s face change. It got larger, transforming into something hideous. Something with almost two inch long fangs in its mouth. As he stepped closer I saw his eyes start to glow and his hands had long claws on them. Startled I looked back at the man’s face as he hunched his shoulder and rushed me moving fast. Then he stopped suddenly as if he had hit a brick wall. Confusion and then alarm crossed its hideous face as he realized I had his throat in my left hand and had lifted him off the ground.
“Beast you choose the wrong person for a meal. I agree if I was just human I would be dinner for you tonight. Unfortunately for you I am not just human. I am something…more.”
The beast confusion turned to fear as it clawed at my hands struggling to get free. Then its fear turned to panic and I watched the light go out in its eyes as I crushed the throat partially decapitating its head. Dropping the body I looked at my watch.
“Still time to make the meeting,” I thought as I resumed walking.
To My Family & Friends,
My thanks to all my family and friends for their inspiring comments. Every single one of them are precious and fuels my imagination to keep imagining, to keep writing a story which captures your imagination. To bring all of you along on the wild ride that my imagination takes me on. To visit the wild and crazy worlds it creates. Again my thanks to you all.

Still working on my two books, however the other day a new book outline popped up in my head. (Damn imagination of mine out of control again). I will be developing it after I finish my present books. In the meantime here is an excerpt on what may be happening in this new book, which I will tentatively call “The Job”
“Our assignment is to travel to a small town on the western edge of the Gobi Desert in Mongolia. There we will retrieve a package and deliver it to a destination that will be given to us once we have the package.”
“Hostiles?” asked the LT.
“None that we know of.”
“Any Chinese troops in the area?” asked another team member.
“None that we know of.”
“Any Mongolian troops?”
“None that we know of.”
“Is the Mongolian government aware of our incursion?”
“What is the threat we may encounter? I asked.
“None that we know of.”
By this time all of us were staring at Smith as if he had lost his mind.
“What intelligence do you have on the area and what is it we are going to retrieve?” growled the Gunny.
“As for the package I don’t know what it is, only where I can find it. As to the area I can tell you this. The town we are going to doesn’t exist.”
“Excuse me?” said the Gunny.
“The town doesn’t exist. It has no name. It is not on any maps anywhere and as far as the intelligence I did get, it shouldn’t be there.”
“That makes no sense” said a sergeant called Coda. “If it’s there, someone built it.”
Smith had a look on his face that said he knew something else. Something bad.
“Spill it Smith. What the hell is going on here?” growled the LT as he stared hard at Smith.
“Due to the area’s proximity to China and Russia, satellite surveys are constantly being taken of the area. As of three weeks ago, there was nothing there. No structures, no roads, no construction equipment, no town. Nothing.”
“Then who knows about this town. Who issued the order to go there and get this mystery package. In fact how do whoever issued the damn order knows there is a package there at all?” I asked.
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know much of anything do you Smith?” said the LT giving Smith a deadly look.

Still working on my novel. I estimate I am about halfway through the book. Unfortunately ‘My Imagination’ is relentless, giving me no respite from it’s invasion of my mind. Due to this I have been forced to start another novel which I have written at least six chapters to date. That’s right. My imagination is forcing me to write ‘Two’ novels at the same time. Which one I work on each day is dependent upon what my imagination force on me when I wake up. So as a prelude to which one I worked on today, I give you this excerpt from my novel “Death Created”:
Looking over I saw what Benny was looking at. Over behind a large work bench there was a massive hole in the floor. From the busted sides of the hole it looked as if something big had tore up through the floor. As I realized this my blood ran cold. I looked back over at the lab door. There was a lot of furniture and cabinets strewn about near the door. Then I looked at the blood spread all over the walls and floor of the room. Looking back at Benny I said,
“Whoever was in here had barricaded themselves in this lab to protect
themselves but that wasn’t enough. Something big tore up through the
floor. It then proceeded to kill everyone in this lab.”
“Boss, what can tear up through a steel floor,” asked Benny as he
examined the hole in the floor.
“I don’t know.”

Excerpt from my novel, “The Savage Knights”
“The Director said to tell you this is a national security matter of the highest order. He specifically said to tell you he will not tolerate any of your bullshit insolence in this matter. We are to ensure that you leave the building to follow your orders.”
“I am not going anywhere until I at least talk to my team leader. Give me a minute to call him,” I said as I reached for my cell.
I froze as all four agents drew their guns and trained them on me. The other people in the lobby all stopped and looked at us as the security personnel started to converge on us. They were stopped as the agent in front of me signaled them not to converge. Slowly I moved my arms away from my body, hands fully opened.
“You guys want to tell me why you have drawn down on me.”
“Technically you are not an FBI agent. Our orders are clear. If you refuse to leave the building and follow your orders you will be classified as an enemy agent and shot right here, right now.”

Excerpt from my book “Damantion’s Retrieval”
“Serema you always were a pain in the ass.”
“Yes I am, now come on.”
All three of us ran out of the Control Room, down the hallway to the Well. We could see the staff rushing inside. Sergeant Mullins was waving us to hurry. Halfway to The Well we all felt the change. It was a physical blow. Almost as if reality itself had changed. Then we heard Sergeant Mullins calling Alan’s name.
“Dr. Matthews, come on. We must get inside.”
Stopping we looked back and saw Alan had stopped and was looking back at the Control Room. Then the change hit us. All of us were lifted off the floor in slow motion as if gravity itself had been negated. A few seconds later we all were slammed down to the floor. Getting up we heard Alan scream,
“Too late, it’s too late. Get inside, get inside.”
Then the walls and doors of the Control Room simply vanished as a wave of what looked like a flaming blue cloud rushed out engulfing everything in it’s path. It was coming so fast we knew we wouldn’t make it to The Well. Theo turned me to him, hugged me close as he said,
“I love you wife.”
“I love y…” was all I got to say, before the world went white.

Hello Family & Friends.
Last night while I was asleep, I let my guard down and my treacherous imagination took over. Now it will not let my mind rest unless I write this next novel it conceived. So with that being said here is the proposed synopsis for my newest upcoming novel tentatively titled
“The Savage Knights”
A century ago the demons in Hell found a way to escape Hell and commenced a terror laden rampage on the earth. A group of people with special powers unknown to humanity rose up and fought the demons with a savagery to match their own, driving the demons back to Hell. These people called themselves,
The Savage Knights
Over the intervening years, the demons have made sporadic attacks against humanity, being stopped and driven back to Hell each time. It became clear to humanity that the demons attacks will never stop. So humanity was faced with only one option.
The Savage Knights has to take the fight to Hell.

An exciting excerpt:
“Tack, there are at least a dozen more thugs coming towards you from your five o’clock,” Guss said in the bone comm behind my right ear.
“We got them,” hissed Kass.
“Quietly,” I said.
She and Casey turned and flowed into the woods, making no sound, disappearing in seconds.
“Nice shot Guss,” I said. “Thanks.”
“No problem,” said Guss laughing. “Doc threatened to not include me in his next orgy if I allowed you or the kids to get shot.”
“Freaks,” I said laughing.
“Have you seen Doc’s orgies? There are at least three to four women for each of us.”
“As if you can handle four women.”
“I am not Doc, but dammit I do give it my best shot.”
Smiling, I stooped low and headed straight for the approaching thugs. They have no idea what’s about to hit them. I had moved in about twenty yards or so when I spotted the approaching thugs. Drawing my axe I waited for Kass and Casey’s signal. The thugs were spread out in a wide line allowing each of them a clear killing field ahead. When Kass and Casey attacked, the thugs just weren’t prepared for them. You see there is a reason I took Kass and Casey with me instead of Guss and Doc. A reason I hadn’t mentioned earlier. Kass and Casey, as well as the whole race of Toloians, are predators, and I mean that in the truest sense of the word. The teeth in their mouth although they look normal, are razor sharp. The black fingernails on their hands are retractable claws. Under combat conditions, their canines elongate about an inch and their claws extend outward also about an inch. When they erupted out of the wood they were nothing but blurs of death. Three of the thugs were down and dead, their throats torn out in just seconds. The remaining thugs tried to concentrate their fire on the siblings, but they were moving too fast. As their attention was on the siblings, I moved in. Two of the thugs must have sensed me as they turned rapidly towards me, bringing their laser rifles to bear but it was too late. They had scant seconds to realize they were dead before my axe took off their heads in one swing. Moving fast to my right I cut off the arm of another thug as he brought his weapon to bear. His arm went to the ground still holding his weapon as he opened his mouth to scream. Kass flashed in, leaped, and momentarily perched on the man’s shoulders. Then she was gone as was his face and most of his throat. Moving fast I attacked two other thugs as I fleetingly saw the faceless man collapse to the ground. As I dispatched the two thugs, I saw Casey swinging his arms in a few brutal swipes at three other thugs. All three stumbled backward, disemboweled as they fell to the ground. Looking around I saw all of the thugs were on the ground dead or dying. The whole fight took just mere minutes. Kass and Casey joined me, the wicked looks of their predator state of mind still present on their faces. I stared at them for a few seconds. Trust me, seeing a man and woman as beautiful as Casey and Kass with inch long canines and claws with a slight yellow luminosity in their eyes is a truly frightening sight to see.

“The Strange Case Of P.I. Sage” An alarming excerpt:
“Later that night I awoke to find Kenny standing at the foot of the bed just staring at me and dammit his eyes glowed again for a few seconds. He then turned and left the house again. That morning instead of going to work I packed a few things and went to stay with my cousin across town. The next day is when I took my story to the police. As I was leaving another detective told me to come and see you.”
“Okay. The bottom line here is that your boyfriend has threatened you and I have seen enough of these situations to know those types of threats simply cannot be dismissed. Did the detective you talked to say they were going to talk to your boyfriend?”
“Yes, but I could tell they simply didn’t believe me. They are convinced I was on drugs or something that night.”
“Okay here is what I can do. I will go and talk to your boyfriend to try and work out something peaceful between you two. Do you still want to leave him or do you want a reconciliation?”
“You did hear me when I said his eyes glowed and his face changed, right?”
“Okay. I will lay out the facts to him and the possible consequences if he pursues his threat. If he voices his threat against you directly to me, I can take that to the police. They will have no choice then but to investigate.”
“Do you have a gun?”
“Yes, I do. Why?”
“There was something else when Kenny’s face changed.”
“For that brief time when his face changed…”
Here she paused again. The look on her face said she wasn’t quite sure how to say the rest of her statement. I waited patiently again for her to get her thoughts together.
“When his face changed that strange smell of his got stronger and a wave of terror overtook me. I felt as if I was being hunted by some terrible animal. The feeling left me as soon as his face went back normal, but I can still remember how much terror I felt at that moment. That’s why I asked if you have a gun. I feel you may need it.”
I just looked at her and there is was. The source of her fear. Whatever happened when her boyfriend threatened her stuck to her like a coat of terror.

Excerpt from “The Anarchy Case” Tuesday 09/05/20
I cautiously stood up as thoughts flooded through my mind. The beast before me is Crutus Nok. A magically enhanced human. His family line had been tampered with by a mad sorcerer over a century ago before The Society caught up to the sorcerer and killed him. I called him Crusty because…well basically it pissed him off.
Crusty interrupted my thoughts as he said,
“Bishop you are aware that one of my family’s most cherished beliefs is that anyone who has done us harm and gets away, will one day again cross our path allowing proper retribution. Guess what day this is for you.”
“Harm? Have I done you some harm Crusty? Refresh my memory on that. Was it when I stopped you from stealing millions of credits from the residents of Mecanville or was it when I dropped that building on your ugly ass?”
