 Fiction: Into Darkness - by JohnHughes (4045 words) - Date online (02-05-2003)
Novel Excerpts

I'd really appreciate some feedback on this, because it's a departure from my usual style of writing and I'm not sure it's going to work, especially over a 100,000 word novel.

The story is set in 1967 and the present. It's about a nineteen year-old schizophrenic called Michael who strangles his girlfriend and then struggles to come to terms with his guilt.

The scene I've submitted occurs after Michael's been convicted and committed to a secure psychiatric hospital for treatment.

Grotesque sentimental sketches bound by sellotape. Rather like a shiny red high heel shoe with a maggot inside. The maggot is wearing a little fish-net stocking and garter belt.

 Fiction: The Freshman - by ian *NEW AUTHOR* Welcome this new UKA author (4518 words) - Date online (25-04-2003)
Novel Excerpts

This Adult Comedy is entitled The Freshman, and this perfectly describes the central character, an extremely handsome though innocent young man named Eric Blake, who doesn’t even recognise his innate appeal that so draws the opposite sex. Unfortunately for him the women who enter his life do, and most of these mean to have their share of him, or their pound of flesh, some in the form of a take-away. The novel deals with the concept of female supremacy, rather than the more familiar issues of female equality, but nevertheless remains very much a Comedy.

Pure fiction i'm glad to say, I tried to convey the action purely through the radio contact.



We do not get to see what really happened, as we would if we were there hearing the report for ourselves, this is a bit of an experiment for me, I would be glad to hear what people think.

Horror

Armageddon is a tale of an apocalyptic world where vampires breed drugged, compliant humans in walled cities. A small group of humans manage to evade the drugging and create a small pocket of resistance determined to recover family and friends. Too soon, however, they discover that they cannot slowly rebuild their strength as planned. The serum used to manage complacency is ultimately fatal – and mankind’s time is quickly running out. It is an action-packed story of human dedication, ingenuity and an undying thirst for survival and freedom

I have rejigged this, tightened it up and taken about a 100 words out.

Every year hundreds of people go missing. Have you ever wondered why people do this? What happens to the people they leave behind, but more inportantly what drives them to do what they do? This is one such story. Amanda left her home in Manchester and eventually made a new life for herself in Scotland. It wasn't till she saw her face on the television that she realised it was time to face her past.

I've put this under fiction because it's a story. This is one of my pieces that means the most to me. It's not much of a story and doesn't have a fantastically gripping end, but it's just the way it happened. Sometimes love goes beyond being with someone and beyond physical contact. Sometimes it just IS.
