Another collection of short stories full of suspense, horror, supernatural, and most importantly...the unknown!
The kindness of a stranger holds an insidious motive. Strange visions plague a young man. A night after work turns deadly. A prank goes horribly awry. A noise complaint reveals supernatural results. A father rushes into a fire to save his daughter. A program for the homeless works strangely too well. Find out what these stories are all about in my short story anthology!
Prepare to be horrified, mystified, and maybe even laugh or cry!

As the title suggests, these entries are not tales as they are information and insights into the fantasy world I'm building which will start at my novel "What Memory Remains". This compendium will serve as both a reference and interest read for those who are curious about more of this world and delving into the who, what, and why. This will teach you details and aspects of the world such as origins of people and places, interesting information and lore, and glimpses into future stories and side tales. Some of these are subject to change as I further develop the lore and history, but generally I won't post unless I feel satisfied with what I've arrived on.
When a young boy creates a golem out of loneliness, he soon finds himself in over his head.

This is a poem that I was inspired to write about Rosemary Kennedy, a relative of the famous Kennedy family. She had a very sad turn of events in her life and I recommend you read about her. It speaks much to how mental health was back then and how so many were misunderstood or misdiagnosed and treated in that time. Also in my poetry collection "At The Core: Prose and Poetry"
Scott Brande goes into an experimental therapy session using lucid dreaming, and gets way more than he bargained for.

A father's poem about hopes for his child's future.
This poem was written during a time I was struggling with a lot of negative emotions, among those self-doubt, anger, and depression. It was an amazing experience, as I began writing just to express how I felt and by the end of the poem, many truths were written on my heart as I wrote them on paper.
A poem about love lost, and being unable to move on.
