A man is riding through a nightmare Aak fictionspawn

Fear

Fear was twisting his soul, tearing his mind. The fear of death, though it was not his.

Lying in his bed watching the ceiling he waited for the inevitable. Madness. Chaos would finally become what it had always urged to be… (more)

Creature hanging on a rock Aak fictionspawn

Caught on Camera

All he had was a photography. A creature, hanging on a rock wall in the forest.

Dave had been obsessed ever since he saw it the first time. He had searched for its origin, for the place it had been taken.

His research led him up in the north, into the forests by the coast. He followed the signs he had been able to encounter, the little hints he could find. There seemed to be a pattern, as if they had been laid out for him to find them… (more)

Book attack Aak fictionspawn ink illustration

Bitten By Books

Donald walked along the shelves, looked at the books. He knew people actually read these things.

“Maybe just a try,” he thought. “For the laugh of it.”

He grabbed one, pulled it out.

“Ouuuch!” The book fell on the floor. His hand was bleeding.  “It… It bit me!”

More books fell out of the shelves. He jumped back. Razor sharp teeth appeared, snapping at him. Attacking him. Biting him.

The biting books came flying… (More)
