Night Demons Part 5 of 6

It’s too bright and too crowded for me to act. A hostile entity wouldn’t feel constrained by people, but if things went dynamic and if I had to perform an exorcism… I don’t need the attention.

Night Demons Part 3 of 6

When going to war, first build an invincible defence. And I am strongest at my home.

Home is a studio apartment a few minutes away from the Farrer Park MRT station. Unlike most single Singaporeans my age, I live alone, well away from my parents. It’s for their safety. They’re normies, and given my lifestyle, the last thing I need is for demons to show up at the doorstep of my family home.

It’s happened more than once.

Night Demons Part 2 of 6

I glance around the room. The miasma redoubles in strength. The Lums' spirit guides are fleeing to different realms for cover. But there is no overt sign of the evil spirit.

I’d have to flush it out.

Night Demons Part 1 of 6

Stepping out the car, I sense the miasma. A black, viscous, oily fog that clings to my skin and tries to eat into my flesh, my bones, my soul. My shield holds. For now.

My Uber drives off, oblivious. A tiny bit of miasma lingers on the car. Nothing to worry about; the late afternoon sun would burn it off soon. There wasn’t any point telling the driver about the miasma either. She didn’t have the second sight. Didn’t have the trained and conditioned third eye chakra needed to see the astral world. Without it, she couldn’t see the dark energies blanketing the housing estate. Feel it, maybe, like a general sense of uneasiness, but not see it. Like most normies, she probably never would. Not in this lifetime.

Which meant I’d always have work.

Sword and Sorcery Short Story: The Far Side of Villainy

Hello everybody, I thought I'd let you know that my sword and sorcery short story The Far Side of Villainy is free to read at the Mighty Thor Jr. blog.

Mighty Thor Jr. is an excellent source of information and commentary about sword and sorcery, and I am proud that my story was chosen as the blog's first piece of original fiction.

The Far Side of Villainy is about a marginalized, morally bankrupt city dweller who falls in love with the powerful head of a desert harem, who is visiting the city where he lives to sell harem slaves. When her harem conspires against her, will he be able to rise to the occasion and save her life, or will he continue in his cowardly ways? Find out in this romantic, adventure-filled tale!

Congratulations and Good Luck to Jeffro Johnson & Brian Niemeier

We've gotten word that Jeffro Johnson has stepped down as the editor of the Castalia House blog, and that Brian Niemeier has taken leave of Geek Gab, both events coming due to an increase of professional demands upon their time (in addition to other factors).

On behalf of the rest of us here at PulpRev, I congratulate you both on your successes as editor and podcast host (respectively), and wish that both of you enjoy even greater professional success in your new and ongoing endeavors going forward. We here at PulpRev look forward to both of you publishing new and exciting works that build upon your previous literary accomplishments. The return of a culture of fun built on what is true could not happen without both of you doing what you've done (or doing what you're doing), and as such we are all grateful.

Good luck, good hunting, and may God smile on you and yours hereafter in all your doings. Godspeed!
