Summary

Three tales of monsters and terror in the Louisiana bayous. 
When a young bride goes missing on her wedding day in Acadiana, the locals blame the Terror, the legendary monster that stalks the Crimson Bayou. 
Remy Theriault does not believe in the Terror and he's pretty sure the bride has done a runner. But the groom is his cousin and family is family. So Remy goes out to look for the runaway bride, only to find that sometimes, the old legends are true… 
When their car crashes into the bayou on a dark Louisiana night, the swamp creature known only as Big Puffball might just be one family's salvation… 
When fishing boats go missing on the Mississippi River Delta, few people link these disappearances to the mysterious light that lit up the Louisiana sky only weeks before. But an astronomer from Tulane University makes the connection and discovers the horror that is the sphere that ate the Mississippi delta. 
This is a collection of three short horror stories of 7700 words or approximately 27 print pages altogether.
Available since: 10/21/2016.

    "The Very Old Folk" is the name given by publishers to a story found in the letter sent to Donald Wandrei by American horror fiction writer H. P. Lovecraft on 3 November 1927. It is a recording of a dream, where the protagonist is a Roman military official in the Vascon country near Pompelo. The countryside is, every year, ravaged by terrible hill people who kidnap citizens and perform cruel rituals at a Sabbath. The narrator wishes to lead a military expedition to crush these hill folk, as a feeling of approaching evil has enveloped the countryside, due to a riot between the citizens and the hill people. These hill folk came to trade, yet some of these are killed and later, no disappearances occur before the time of the Sabbath. The incursion is guided by a local-born son of Roman parents. As the Romans approach the seat of the Sabbath rituals, something terrible attacks them and in an instant, horrible things come to pass...

    On her wedding day, Patricia Cotter, the widowed Lady of Pruett, signed a contract agreeing to the following: 
    1. She would never look at her husband’s face. 
    2. She would never remove the sheets covering the mirrors. 
    3. She would never ask her husband about his past. 
    In return for doing these things, she will have a secure place for her unborn child and her worries will be over. She has nothing to lose by agreeing to her husband’s terms. Yes, she’s heard the rumors about Mr. Stephen Bachman. He was said to have killed his first wife, though there is no proof condemning him of the crime. He is aloof and never leaves his manor. He is practically a prisoner in his own home. 
    But as she gets to know him, she begins to believe her husband isn’t the beast everyone’s made him out to be. There just might be a gentleman worth loving beneath his hard exterior. The question is, can she get him to let go of the past so he can open himself up to the possibility of a fairytale romance?

    All her fault . . .  
    Carrie Alexander lives a quiet life in a tiny town in Minnesota, recovering from a broken heart and her guilt.

She’s doing everything she can to make up for the disaster she wrought, and she has no time for the stranger who appears at her door on a wintry Thanksgiving night—no matter how angelically beautiful he is.  
    He’s going to need a miracle . . .  
    Healing the town is a relatively simple matter. Fixing lost souls will be a piece of cake. But how the hell can Gabriel heal the woman he’s fallen in love with, knowing he’s going to abandon her once again?
