“Run!” he screamed. “It’s still alive!!”

Michael Vance's Weird Horror Tales: The Feasting, the second book of his pulp firciton trilogy, has joined Weird Horror Tales in re-release by Airship 27 Productions. His second braided novel of fifteen interrelated horror, SF, and fantasy stories was also written in the style and tradition of pulp magazines in the ‘20s, ‘30s, and ‘40s.

Weird Horror Tales:The Feasting is easily one of the creepiest, most mesmerizing horror stories I have ever read. Months after finishing it, images and scenes continued to haunt me and their memories sent chills through me. This is not a book to read alone at night." said Ron Fortier, editor of The Feasting.

“My stories are founded on the premise that there is something larger than our narrow view of reality,” said Vance. “Each interconnected story shares setting, history, prominent families, and a macro plot. The stories also focus on the Azrealites, a religious cult that works tirelessly to reinstate that ‘Other’ on Earth through science and the occult.”

These stories about the fictional town of “Light's End” in Maine have been published in dozens of magazines in three countries. Vance’s influences on these stories are H. P. Lovecraft, William Faulkner, and Ray Bradbury.

The cover was done by France’s Christophe Dessaigne, a journalist, scenarist for role playing games, and photographer. Mainly influenced by the science fiction, horror, and fantastic genres, his atmospheric, surreal creations combine digital photography and manipulation in a dark and post-apocalyptic future.

The interior illustrations are by artist Earl Geier, best known for his horror, fantasy and science fiction artwork. In the role playing game industry, his work includes art for Battletech, Call of Cthulhu, and many others. He has illustrated books for Cemetery Dance magazine, Chaosium, Gryphon and Subterranean Press. For comic book, he's had work published by Dark Horse Comics, Comiczone, Now, Innovation and DC Comics Paradox.

Vance has written for national and international magazines, and as a syndicated columnist and cartoonist in over 500 newspapers. His six published novels include Forbidden Adventures, his Weird Horror Tales trilogy, Global Star, and The Equation. He briefly ghosted an internationally syndicated comic strip, wrote his own strip and several comic books. He is listed in the Who's Who of American Comic Books and Comic Book Superstars.
