  • The Sacrifice of Anton Stacey – Tales From the Animus Part 1

    “With this tale of a soul in jeopardy against a backdrop of apocalyptic terror, Christian Francis distills enough plot for a 500 page novel into a tight fable-like novella, poignant and horrifying in equal measure.” 
    Peter Atkins (Morningstar, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Wishmaster)

    As the snow beats down on a small Appalachian town of Folksville, the Stacey Brothers meet to bury their father.

Something that spreads a rot so monstrous, that nothing can survive.

  • Everyday Monsters – The Animus Chronicles Book 1

    “It starts with a letter, a job, a head and a mysterious book – and only gets weirder from there! Deliciously dark, with humour as black as sin and evocative descriptions of all the outlandish grotesques on display; I especially liked the Moogle! In short, this romp was huge amounts of fun to read.”
