"THE THING ACROSS THE WAY billowed like funeral drapery. It stood upon two stilt legs and wound its torso about the bedposts, somehow rigid and boneless in the same instant, fluttering upon a breeze only it felt. A sour stench filled the air, fetid and cloying and strangely familiar.

"It slithered free of the bed, gathered itself into some semblance of a man and stalked forward. The beast crossed the room in two strides. She drew in a great breath, but a fleshy limb cinched about her jaw and held her screams checked in her throat. The beast's face lay inches away. Though it lacked eyes and ears and nose, she knew the appendage to be such, for the pit which must be its mouth puckered open and closed. It spat a single word into the air.


"Yes, she was. And now it was too late to confess..."

DIABOLICAL EVIL stalks the English countryside as childhood friends become entangled in a treacherous game of cat-and-mouse when they face off with a hellish creature bent on their destruction. So begins the saga of Sarah and Tabitha in THE DEVIL'S TRILL, the first chapter of The Ladies Bristol Occult Adventures series, a collection of thrilling supernatural adventures from the mind of horror and dark fantasy author Rhoads Brazos.

Like a dark version of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson trapped in a world of the macabre, two friends from Bristol open forbidden doorways into the arcane and mystical realm of the occult and awaken the deadly forces that reside within.

Fans of the BUFFY, THE VAMPIRE SLAYER horror franchise and the BURTON & SWINBURNE ADVENTURE series will find a new world of terrifying fantasy in THE DEVIL'S TRILL that puts a modern spin on the gothic thriller.

    If you're looking for a supernatural, demon-hunting pair that have courage and vim but just happen to be ladies of the Regency, look no further. My favorite part of this story, other than the dedicati...

    THE DEVIL'S TRILL is a bit of a departure for Grey Matter Press. It is a step into the realm of somewhat cozy horror. I do like that type of story every now and again; it's kind of nice to clear my ow...

    What a weird little book. I got it on a whim and wasn't expecting it to be so short. All the same, it was short, sweet, and to the point. The monster is creative, it's weirdly sexy at times, and ultim...
