This collection is a career defining collection for me as you see now 18 years in operation combined online and print. This collection houses "When Angels Wept Blood" and "Revisiting the Loss of Blood" both are very epic and cinematic dark tales -- one's a work of urban fantasy and the other is creative nonfiction. This will have a revised introduction as you get over 278 pages of horror, Urban Fantasy and Gothic madness. 33 tales over all but nine of them are true including "Apt. #2W" and "A South Barrington Haunting" within these pages you will have some very rigid nightmares detailed from the eras of 1998, stories about 1997 and 1996 from was on the verge of turning 20 and when I was 19 years old. I had found all the artwork and photographs said to be lost during 2001 as this will be included with the new TOC design work and the photos like in the lulu.com edition will also be in this edition too. I will have more aspects in the layout work on this collection as you will see the Glimmertrain version of "Damnation Observes" which is 2400 words, a potent story that was said to be lost and became the story rewritten into "The Pattern of Diagnosis." Even in this form it was potent. Stories were from The Ethereal Gazette I contributed and stories that were in The House of Pain. "The Fandom Writer" had been rewritten and giving the edit known as "The Howling Man" version -- the much more hardcore version than the original 2004 cut. It's known as the Director's Cut. Get ready for some serious haymakers from beginning to end of the collection. I am not screwing around with Dirty Black Winter. I bring the prototype story of my longer works to the fold with this one as many readers know my signature when they see the ultra-violent Gothic Horror tale known as "A Cemetery Dream." If you think Kealan Patrick Burke is the master of the macabre you might also be convinced that Limp Bizkit is a heavy metal band or have a majority of your metal releases being *metal. Would you still read him knowing he read wrote The Clause and created the character of Bram The Talking Wonder Dog. I throw a basketball in Kealan's face as I get this pickup game in hell going. "The Fandom Writer" in the book has some more trash talking. Brian Keene is one of the biggest trash talkers in the business as I am prone to talk some trash over the years. The introduction has some trash talking in the mix about the media and of Stephen Glass. The story which will be in this is a very clean dark bizarro story called "Damnation Observes" as the 2400 word version. These stories will leave more for the reader where that came from; and you will come back for more. Some of them in this book -- will have a vibe to what was just was published, what would you tell your younger self (as he came to CreateSpace.com and welcome.) 278 pages of Gothic Literature drawn from urban life and the horror that came from it. Brian Keene with his first collection of works was 260 pages overall all collection of "Dirty Black Winter" is longer. Deals with hypocrisy for the first time with three works -- the closing story was the set up for the story I wrote in "Nickolaus Albert Pacione Delivers: More From A Library Of Unknown Horrors." The idea of writing a horror story using Near Death Experiences was there in college but couldn't do this justice. I.O.W.A.'s ideas where there too at the time. The first Pro-Life Gothic Horror story is how I coin this one; the nonfiction were my heart and soul that went into these. Many of the fictional tales my influences came together. I speak how I first came across the congregation of Faith World Outreach as I knew I had approached something quite weird as one of them sifted through my heavy metal tapeshow more

About Nickolaus Albert Pacione

Pacione re-introduces Dirty Black Winter with an introduction that reflects writing "Legend Keeper," "Collectives In A Forsaken Metascape" and "Suburbanite's Confessional." (the second collection he's also did this) and his new collection as he speaks of the anthologies he's overseeing. He said to Tabetha Jones the only way he will do this is if he draws the cover himself but that roster wouldn't want anything to do with a very raw project. He's edited nine anthologies, and some of them are back online -- he's got anthologies one, five, and six along with eight and nine back online. He's getting ready to release anthology number 11 and waiting for the rest of the tenth. Pacione shows the hopefuls how it's done with this collection. Find him on http: //np1976.codexed.com. He's going to show the masses how it's done and takes you to school. He's been writing since 1990 and being born in 1976, he outlived Robert E. Howard, and a few others who had died under 40. He was 34 when he did this collection and the introduction is a new introduction that reflects the new collection and Legend Keeper's existence. This is the fourth book by the Elder Statesmen. So welcome to the pitch black circus that becomes the horror within his ghoulish ideas. He got mad when Faith World Outreach got on him for going to Iron Maiden and listen to Megadeth openly. They even got on him about going to college to take Philosophy as he wrote within his testimony, "Suburbanite's Confessional." This book will show the stories which he wrote when he got pissed at God. He speaks how one of them lied to his face with a smile when he clearly said he had A.D.H.D. Bob Beeman had written the book what if you went back in time and meet your younger self. Pacione did quite a few stories like this. Legend Keeper is his mind at 28 in his 12-13 year old body; that dark archaic tone Pacione used in "Wandering In Darkness." Using what is called as the Roman a Clef device. Wandering In Darkness when revised reflects "The Cabbie Homicide," "The Pattern of Diagnosis" and "Library of Bones." The unholy manuscript in the story was Cabbie. Hands down his darkest and contains some harsh stories herein; writing hardcore shit since age 14. The seeds for the testimony is "Revisiting the Loss of Blood" as he found their photos.show more
