Summary

Horror is a genre of speculative fiction which is intended to frighten, scare, disgust, or startle its readers by inducing feelings of horror and terror. It shocks, or even frightens the reader, or perhaps induces a feeling of repulsion or loathing. It creates an eerie and frightening atmosphere. Horror is frequently supernatural, though it might also be non-supernatural. Often the central menace of a work of horror fiction can be interpreted as a metaphor for the larger fears of a society.

    The Reaper did not speak. He did not even move, for what need did he have to chase anyone? Everyone comes to him eventually. Men, women and gods all are consumed in his ever waiting black. Clive, sighing deeply, turned to look Death in the face. 
    In the form he took for Clive, Death stood around seven feet tall. The hood of his monk’s cowl falling to just above the bridge of the nose, had there been a nose to speak of. Instead, there was simply a hole, a cavernous nothing, like death itself, that hung like a cave above the fixed death's head smile. The unmoving, unflappable grin of the skull, never to be bargained with, never to be moved. 
    In one hand, from which straggled tendrils of long rotted flesh hung like threads, the figure held a huge scythe. The blade for which, was so keen that the air moving around it seemed to divide and slice as it touched. A blade kept sharp for the reaping of souls. The severing of the cord from the mortal plain. 
    As he stared into the inevitable, the gaping abyss represented by the figure standing before him. Clive thought back to the images he had seen of ‘Death’ to the medieval woodcuts, their finer details blurred with the bleeding of the ink. Or the finely etched engravings of Albrecht Duhrer and Goya, with Death, the hooded skeleton or rotting ancient cadaver. 
    He wondered if all of those hours poring over medieval manuscripts had formed this image for him. Whether to others, Death appeared in a different shape or in no shape at all. The thought flashed by like a furtive glimpse one sometimes catches of a rat, so fast and elusive that you are left to doubt if it was the thing itself, or merely its shadow that you saw streak by. Now though, there was no time for contemplation. Now was the time for terror.

    Valerie's Tale is a story about a little girl with a heart filled with courage and strength, living in a world plagued with war and where magic is divided by clerics, who believe in using magic conservatively, and mages, who use it for whatever their heart's desire.  
    Valerie is forced to grow up quickly when her mother contracts a life threatening illness, one that a cleric cannot heal. With hopes of saving her, Valerie seeks out an old wizard, a gentle man with a silly personality and unusual powers to heal her. But she ends up getting frozen and brought to the future filled with odd machines powered by steam. She meets an old friend, who offers to help her through this dark new world, mostly occupied by dark mages who dominate the land with their dangerous magic, and find the kindly old wizard who helped her in her childhood.  
    In her adventure, she must learn to accept things that she can't control, and she learns of patience, death, and the price of messing with forces they don't understand. But could magic really be such a dangerous force to mess with?
