-Coming of Age
A young man is being forced into a military life he doesn’t want and doesn’t think he’s cut out for. But, he’s the son of the man running the space mining/military base where he lives. He doesn’t have the options he thinks he should.
A young woman comes to the base for the schooling provided there and captures the attention of the young man.
He becomes caught up in her mission to save someone she loves, even though that means bending and breaking a few rules. But, along the way, he finds out he’s military material after all.
Together they discover more than they bargained for, and opportunities open up for them both.
Between losing his job over a sandwich and his brother not wanting to know, a man can’t catch a break. When he finds that new employment in the world’s largest company is possible he tries his luck at scoring an interview. It goes well.
Once employed he finds a nightmarish world of mind bending delusions, inhuman treatment, and terrible violence. He no longer knows who to trust. He can no longer trust himself.

Stories From The Chapel
This anthology is a collection from professional and amateur writers, poets, and artists who all have one thing in common: a passion for the film “Night of the Living Dead”. In an effort to preserve a piece of cinematic history, they have joined forces with the Fix The Chapel movement to save the iconic building that appears in the opening scenes of that historic film. Located within the Evans City Cemetery in Evans City PA, the chapel is being threatened with demolition due to a lack of funds to maintain it. By purchasing this anthology, you will not only be entertained by some incredibly talented people, you will also help to preserve one of the last remaining ties to a film that has inspired countless film makers, authors and horror fans. We thank you for supporting the cause.
