Undeniably, the horror genre of literature offers something uniquely valuable. None of its counterparts can approach its power to hold the imagination firmly in its grip, with matters macabre, terrifying, and enticingly mysterious. Never should we cease partaking of it, in all of its variety and brilliance.
I trust that you are in agreement with these things. And, if you are, then you are also very much in luck. Available now is a brief but potent, one-of-a-kind anthology of horror stories, entitled Three Wedtels Deepth, written by rising literary talent, Sha’Kim Bush.
pp. 1-4: Just In Time- A man embarks upon a long-awaited trip to the American Southwest with an appetite for adventure, but gets more than he bargained for:
“On my last night, I went to bed outside of my tent lying on my back, my hands piled under my head triumphantly, staring up at the vastness of space above. The last thing that I remember seeing that night was one of those huge rock formations, buttes they’re called, which stand mightily here and there in the desert. Its dark, distant shape poked just above the outline of my two adjoined feet. I remember that sight vividly.”
pp. 5-6: Bus Tan Guy- An untimely, up-close encounter leads a public transportation passenger to a frightful discovery:
“Several stops following my boarding, however, as I sat silently, an animated, mysterious something had begun emanating in my peripheral vision, and my peripheral sense. I realized that someone was staring at me.”
pp. 7-13: Verbatim- An enterprising videogame developer toils to uncover the key to the ultimate gaming experience:
“I was astounded when one subject, a middle-aged man, emerged from the experience provided to him by Verbatim with glowing eyes and a bright smile. His appearance of transformation was unmistakable, and I felt myself surge with anticipation at the possibility that he had indeed been profoundly changed by my creation, for such an effect, although quite unintended, would have been very much welcomed by me.”
As for the title of this anthology, it is a distorted version of the phrase “three levels deep”, which of course is in turn a provocative allusion to the number of stories inside. Although, the string of three words in the title of this anthology, two of which words being themselves made-up, is significant alone, quite in harmony with the strangeness of all the subject matter to be discovered on the ensuing pages.
And so, I hope that you will seize this opportunity to indulge that part of you that is waiting for a deep thrill like this. That part of you craves rightly a space for play. Abandon, if only briefly, the internet’s many tepid corridors and chambers, which provide you with little in the way of unadulterated fun, and let your imagination be reinvigorated.
