Check out the great reviews of “Mythical” and “Errant Shot”

at The Bookworm’s Blog along with a ton of other great reviews!

Errant Shot Cover

“This is a creepy and amazing short story! It starts out with a major catastrophe and quickly things start to take an even more disastrous turn. What Tim thinks may be an amazing find that will set him up with his next paycheck turns into something completely horrific and unexpected. The story takes a very dark turn and the ending is amazing and unbelievable. I think the author should take this short story and make it into a full novel because I would love to see how the world turned out after what happens. I feel like he took my cake from me just as I was about to eat a fork full. I want more! I feel like this was just the beginning.” From Amazon

Mythical Cover-2

“Mythical was just as amazing as Errant Shot. Another short story by the same author. It was a heart pounding read that clutches onto you and pulls you in from the beginning of the story. You won’t believe the plot twist. There’s fantasy, evil, violence and compassion all brilliantly wrapped in this short story with an unbelievable ending. William Peterson is an incredible story teller and his stories are not to be passed up.” From Amazon

There’s a new bug in town…

BlackBlueCircle

Antite

A Short Horror Story

What if, in our endless drive to tame new lands, we provoked a response from nature itself?

What if nature designed a creature to take on the most dangerous species on the planet?

What if that design was meant to replace us at the top of the food chain?

Could we stop it, or would nature forcibly take its planet back?

*****

In response to mankind’s encroachment upon the last remaining natural areas on the planet, nature fights back. Combining some of its toughest and most resilient designs, nature creates a new type of insect.

Larger and much more aggressive than any type of insect ever seen before, it quickly reclaims lost territory. It evolves and adapts to expand far beyond the rainforest from which it emerged, maybe even farther than Mother Nature had intended.

Nature’s answer to the human race is…The Antite.

An Apocalypse in Blue…

BlackBlueCircle

Blue-Green

A Short Horror Story

A chemical spill kills an addict and would-be drug manufacturer, mixing together a deadly concoction which gives rise to a new type of organism. A viral and fungal mutation, deadly and clever, spreads across cities and small towns, blanketing entire areas with a fine, blue-green dusting and releasing vast amounts of toxic gases into the atmosphere as it multiplies. Adapting and mutating as its needs and environment change, the organism overruns the planet before any type of response can be mounted.

A state trooper and an aspiring biology student, two of a handful of people unaffected by the plague, are running north with the hope that a colder climate will slow its progress. Discovering along the way that there is more to the organism than anyone could have imagined, they struggle to keep themselves, and the human race, alive.

Coincidence?

BlackBlueCircle

March 2014: Two asteroids have passed closer than the moon is to the earth in as many days…

That was eery enough.

March 2014: Then one blew up in the air over Canada today…

That sent chills up my spine.

What if one of these were an “Errant Shot” ?
