Grim Tales of the Brothers Kollin is our first-ever anthology of short stories.
General Verdict: In a world where America neither won nor lost the Revolution, George Washington and his 10,000-strong Continental Army have a choice to make. Do they try to save England from a French invasion by the greatest general of the age or do they betray their tenuous loyalty to the mother country with the French promise of Independence for neutrality? On the sunny, summer fields of old England Washington must make a fateful choice as a new world waits to be born.
Day by Day: What if the Mayan’s had been right about Dec. 21st, 2012? What if it had truly been the last day on Earth? To the great relief of those following the ancient prophecy, nothing happens. And then the world awakes on December 21st…again, and again and again. In this new time-looped reality no action—no matter how depraved or noble-—matters anymore, to anyone. That is, except for one man and a centuries-old baby who will go on a quest to save the world—one that will last 500 years…and a day.

He must singlehandedly bring together and save the shattered remnants of the human race and do so as a vampire; revealed.

This is a moral inversion tale that begins with the simple act of one foot slipping on a clutch and ends in a nightmare that is arguably far worse than the death of the six million.
