MISTS OF PAPOOSE POND - BY BLAZE MCROB

 







https://www.amazon.com/Mists-Papoose-Pond-Blaze-McRob-ebook/dp/B017DMCFHI/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=mists+of+papoose+pond&qid=1624146522&s=books&sr=1-1


Mists Of Papoose Pond is one of those weird tales that flits around in my mind, demanding to be told. And so, I allowed my story people to whisper in my ear, telling me which keys to punch, and what words to write. This is how I write. I hope you enjoy my styling method.

******

Where will it begin?

On a mountaintop?

At the bottom of the sea?

In a spaceship?

Or perhaps in a cabin by a pond enveloped by mysterious mists.

Mysterious mists that secrete forces of nature…

And good and evil.

******

Ed Hageman wants nothing more than to relax at Papoose Pond, but that's not to be. As the ultimate battle between good and evil shapes up around him, creatures are not what they seem. Many twists of fate, and many shocks await not only Ed and his companions, but those of you who read his story.

Prophets of yore were not all-seeing after all. Gods and devils are not how holy books described them.

Blaze McRob spins the tale.

Blaze McRob untangles the legend.

Blaze McRob finds the meaning in the Mists of Papoose Pond.

******

Here is the first chapter:

******

I can't sleep. My bedroom is stifling, even though it's usually cool in the early morning hours in this part of Maine.

"Shit!" I mutter to myself. "I might as well grab a smoke and go outside where it's cooler."

Slipping into my boxers, I grab my Camels and my lighter and hightail it outdoors where I do enjoy a little more refreshing air. I slide up to the railing of the porch and sit, watching the mists roll across the pond.

Pond: that's a misnomer for you. Nothing in Maine is the same as any place else. Anywhere else, this would be a lake. It's three miles long by a mile or more wide. In New Jersey where I come from, that's a damned lake. What difference does it make?  They call it Papoose Pond, so Papoose Pond it is.

My family has been coming up here for years. At least until my grandfather stopped bringing us. All at once, for no apparent reason, he decided he no longer wanted to spend a week in the rustic cabins in southwestern Maine. Being the tight-lipped German he was, no one was about to get any information out of him. Stubborn was his middle name.

What difference does it matter? My siblings and I have long since split apart, my parents and grandparents are dead, my wife is now my ex, and I just want some me time for a change. Fuck everyone else. This is the perfect place for it: the getaway; my retreat into relaxation before I throw my life back together.

My grandfather told the owners of the pond many years ago that they should fix things up a bit, modernize, get with the times. They did to a point but still manage to keep the rustic look and feel of the place. And the fishing? Still fantastic! Crappie and White Perch still hover around twenty inches long and have deep, thick bodies. As for the Bass fishing, just try plying a surface plug through the waters at night and see how far it goes before some Largemouth or Bronzeback plasters the living hell out of it.

I caught my share of fish hours ago, keeping only enough for some fish stew later in the day, but the sounds floating around, catching my ears, are not the ones associated with fish frolicking and chasing their smaller counterparts before closing in on them for the kill. These sounds are different. I have heard them before, even from my bed. This morning they are closer because I am outside.

The smoke from my Camel curls up into the air, dancing about, trying to mimic the mists rolling in from out on the pond. They're coming in from the north end where the lily pads sit thick at the edge of a deep water drop off. This is the best place on the pond to catch the giant White Perch and Crappies. It is adjacent to the Crooked River access, and springs are in abundance there.

Something else also resides there. I have always felt it, not knowing what it is, but feeling it play along my skin, teasing me, and creating goosebumps before vanishing into nothingness.

From something to nothing in a matter of minutes. Not one time but many. Could this be what caused my grandfather to stop coming here? Did the fear finally get to him? Maybe he found out what it was and wanted no part of it. I'll never know. Dead men don't talk.

Or do they?

What about the day we had a giant stringer of huge fish attached to the oarlocks of the rowboat? Somehow the stringer managed to come free from its attachments and the fish slowly sank towards the deepest part of the lily pad area. My grandfather had plenty of time to snag the stringer with the oar in his hand, but he froze, unable to move, and the stringer and the fish vanished from sight. I started to ask him why he made no effort, but I stopped, knowing the kind of answer I would get: or wouldn't get.

The mists come closer and closer to the cabin, and even though it sits some fifty yards from the pond's edge, the dancing droplets of condensation seemingly pirouette their way across the beach to where I'm sitting, first ankle high, then reaching mid-way up my chest. The cigarette smoke joins with the swirling fog and they cavort as one, creating a calming feeling massaging my unsettled mind.

Peaceful shapes dance all around me. I smile at ballerinas performing their amazing tiptoe jumps and landings, the mists opening and closing to accentuate their delicate, precise movements. I put my cigarette out, thinking I can go back to sleep, contentment putting me in the mood.

A sudden chill hits me before I can get to my feet. Bone-chilling cold, causing my hands to turn blue instantly. The ballerinas' faces vanish, replaced by monstrous, billowing towers of inhuman shapes.

Substance comes from the distortion of the mists! Flesh and bone hovering over me, smiling at me. No, not smiling - leering at me!

Brownish-yellow teeth, sharp and pointed, force their way into prominence when the creatures open their mouths, tongues lapping at miniscule lips, telling me where their next meal is coming from. Me! They want me!

I run to the door of the cabin, hoping to get inside and lock it behind me so they can't get inside. Sure, as if the door will pose a problem for these monsters!

A huge, scaly leg reaches out and trips me, sending me to the floor of the porch. Gigantic webbed hands reach out to me, the sharpened, elongated nails threatening to tear me apart. Water drips off these creatures combining with a slime from their powerful chests and finds its way into my eyes. I scream in pain as blindness overcomes me!

It's just as well. I don't want to see what's going to happen next. Let it be over! Let it be over!

The pressure of the air coming down on me, forced by the behemoths' closeness, intensifies. They are almost on me!

******

This novel is loaded with horror, non-stop action, and monsters. Lots of monsters.

******

Happy reading!

RED SURF - BY BLAZE MCROB

 


https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07MYDZWBP/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i44


Red Surf, a short story by Blaze McRob, is a tale of revenge, triggered by incidents which could have, in real life, led to tragic results for many people. The book description sets it up nicely.

Once known for romance,

This place turns into a bloody dance;

In the tempo of disease

On an island no one leaves.

******

To add even more of a reason to check out my tale, I have included a short teaser below.

******

There is just a sliver of a moon tonight, barely enough to show the surf for what it is. Others like me stare out into the gently rippling waters, the hunger in our bellies driving us mad from the ravenous urge to seek out more prey. But one cannot eat what is not there.

Maybe . . .  just maybe if I wade out into the red surf one more time there will be a morsel overlooked from before.

Others beat me to it, but it is all for naught. The blood-stained waters are barren. We saw to that earlier. Santa Catalina. The old song beats a wild staccato in my head. No, this is no longer an island of romance. Leave me alone, damn it! 

But it doesn't leave me alone. Over and over again the words assault me. How can there be romance without people? There can't. This is insanity. Everything is insanity now. 4,000 residents of this island are either now dead or like me. Maybe I'd be better off dead.

The old clay and metal pipes which wore away long ago allowed human sewage to flow into the city's ground water and eventually into Avalon Bay. Over the years the bacteria deposits grew and gained entry into the bodies of those tending the beaches. Day after day we were assaulted without even knowing it.

The fecal bacteria inside my body tear at me, changing me more and more from what once was a human to whatever it is I am now. Chunks of flesh have fallen away from me, leaving boils and pockets of pus. My hair is rapidly becoming a thing of the past, joining with my departed flesh as it becomes litter on the beach, further desecrating it.

Beware; be cautious

And know the bloody side of town.

Scary to read

******

Here's a short sample to whet your horror thirst:


The small circus has traveled pretty much the same route for years. Sure, there have been a few occasions where extreme weather or wars have caused some fluctuations, but the little farming communities in the far-flung sections of this part of western New Jersey look forward to the big top with all the excitement of the high-wire acts, the animal taming with lions and tigers looking as if they might maul their handlers at any time, and the balancing acts done by agile men and women on barrels and other assorted objects seemingly much more suited to other uses.

Yet, the mainstay of the circus, the clowns, are often overlooked. Sure, there are those who laugh at their antics, appreciating the dexterity they possess to perform the nimble moves needed to make it appear their falls, slaps, and other hilarious hijinks are real and not contrived, but, for the most part, there is a ho-hum attitude about them, and the children often times are afraid of the brightly made up faces of these entertainers and scream whenever one comes close.

Jangles is the clown who has been with the Davis Bros. Circus the longest; exactly how long no one can really remember. It seems as if he has always been a part of the show. He is not happy with the lack of respect given to him and his peers, but he chooses not to engage in the dressing room conversations when his friends discuss the possibility that maybe, just maybe, the clown as an entertainer is going the way of the dodo bird.

Nonsense, he figures. Without clowns, there would be no circuses. If circuses themselves vanish from the scene, then maybe what they say is true, yet, that won't happen.

Never will that happen, he thinks. Never.

The evening air is hot and humid tonight, typical for late June, and there is no movement in it at all. The other clowns are uncomfortable in their costumes and heavy make-up, just waiting for the show to be over so they can strip down and cool themselves off, but the heat doesn't bother Jangles. Bring it on, he thinks. I can handle it.

When the show is over, everyone in the circus rushes to cool off as the crowds return home, back to their mediocre existences. Jangles leaves his makeup and costume on and watches the guests leave, taking note of which direction they are going and keeping a close eye on those who leave alone.

Yes, the people who came here on their own are the ones who interest Jangles the most. A private show for them would be most fitting. He will not let them down.

A young lady, not in any hurry to leave, takes in all the majesty the Big Top has to offer. Now that it is empty, there is a special added charm: the flickering lights catch all the corners, creating shadows of mystery and allure. From out of one of the corners, Jangles steps forth, his bright red mouth and white face talking to her without the benefit of words.

They move towards each other, deliberately, but not pushing the timing any. The moment is special. It cannot be rushed.

The clown stares into her eyes before moving to her throat, where he gently places his lips, first planting a sweet kiss upon her, and then releasing the fangs within his mouth to dig into her carotid. He draws long and hard on the bright red sustenance flowing from her neck, which to him is as mead presented from the Gods.

******

Here is a short snippet from chapter one to show you I waste no time in getting to some action.

******

Time was running out.

Charlie stared at the clouds building in the west. Once more the forces of nature were about to unleash their fury on the residents of Cheyenne. Since the early days of this infernal devastation of the planet, this city had appeared safe. Six thousand feet high, far removed from the coastal flooding which had obliterated entire cities from the face of the earth, the ravaging tempests of the oceans would not affect life here.

Not so.

Cause and effect. It was happening again.

The skies turned almost black, even though it was early afternoon. Lightning struck the surrounding prairies, leaving beautiful, but garish, displays of the power within the clouds. Thunder boomed, rattling buildings. This was no ordinary thunder: it resonated with a fervor of vengeance, shouting to all who would listen that the skies were king. Humans were frail beings, unable to withstand the onslaught of destruction, and the devastation was seconds away.

Twin tornadoes came in on the city, throwing cars into buildings, any unfortunate souls trapped inside screaming as their vehicles became airborne. Some of the fortunate ones were able to holler out after a violent impact. Others were not so fortunate. Only silence surrounded them.

Here's a short teaser for this book:



There was once a wealthy man who lost his wife and remarried in haste. His second wife was a shrew, so proud and haughty that within a short time he realized his mistake, but the deed was done. Worse than that, she brought into his fine house two daughters who were just like her.

Ah, but his own daughter, a lovely lass, as beautiful on the inside as the outside, was made to feel inferior by the stepmother and her two beautiful but persnickety daughters. The new mistress of the mansion saw fit to have her do all the work that a scullery maid would normally do, while her daughters had not to lift a finger to help around the house. They gave her the name Cinderella because when her work was done, she had to sit amongst the ashes.

But Cinderella did not tell her father what was happening because she realized he was being controlled by his domineering wife and did not wish to cause him any more hardship.

And it came to be that the King’s son gave a series of balls to which the finest in the kingdom would come. There was a longing in his heart to find a proper woman that he might come to love, for even though royal blood flowed through his veins, he was lonely and desperately wanted a love to call his own.

So, it was that her stepsisters should be invited to the biggest ball of all and had Cinderella, who was a Master of Fine taste, assist them in preparing their clothes and hair for the grand event. Even though the two bickered amongst themselves constantly, Cinderella managed to bedeck them in the finest clothing and coiffures imaginable, and they soon left in their carriage, but not before teasing their step-sister that she was not going to the ball.

The pain of doing everything in her power to make her step-sisters look so grand while she had to remain home in her dusty enclave caused her to break down and cry as she was sitting on the edge of the hearth.

“And what might be wrong, my sweet lass?”

Cinderella stared into the face of a short, disheveled woman with raggedy wings. Her face was covered with boils and peeling flesh. Truth be told, she appeared to be on death’s door, but in spite of it all, her disposition was cheery.

“And who . . . and who might you be?” Cinderella asked, shocked at the very presence of this woman.

The woman laughed. “Why, I am your Fairy Godmother.”

“But you look almost like you are dead.”

“Ah, my dear, I am dead, but I am not dead.”

Happy reading, my friends!
