~ Pontius Pilate is cursed to be a vampire. Life after life after life. ~
And for the Plata dealing Pilate, his life is more like a death sentence. His only chance surviving is to keep on selling his monthly quota of Plata. This new man-made narcotic is a potent speed-ball designed to amp up the user, while also numbing the conscience into euphoric oblivion. To nullify the pain. To stifle the torture. To run and to hide from all the anguish inside. PILATE is a drug lord vampire in this re-telling of Christ’s final days. When given yet another chance to save the Earth’s latest Christ, will the re-incarnated Pilate choose to protect Her? Or to save his drug business, his money and his friends, will the modern day Pilate instead choose to wash his hands of the whole ordeal? Pilate shall have to allow the torture and death of a Holy Person in order to save his very own life. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” This is a truly Brutal Bible Tale. A dismal post-industrial future. A look at man defiled and in decline. Evil has arrived and Dominion has been taken by the damned, the demons, vampires, vicious ghosts and strange halflings. The cast-aside by-products of all the debauched rampages and scientific sins against nature. Sex, drugs, and broken souls are the only trade commodities left.
Sick, Disgusting, Vile…and Genius,
He may be one of the sickest, most twisted writers writing today, but there’s a mad brilliance to his work. Reading his texts is like growing wiser …
–Eric Mays “Bizarro Author of “Naked Metam…
Sick Sick sick my kind of book!
Filled with sex and violence that’ll keep you turning the pages. With a vampire feasting on an embryo and many other dreadful acts you have to check out.
—-Kipp Poe Speicher “Kipp Poe Speicher” (Canton, Ohio)
Step Aside, Passion Of The Christ!
Rage does not down play the evils of today, and he re-enforces the fact that there is no good without evil (and vice-versa) in this thrilling tale. —-A. A. A. (Illinois, U.S.A.)
Compound street violence and mega-violence of the most extreme horror variety and you get a story that any horror fan would eat up. I highly recommend it. —-W. D. Hanson “AKA Ichorous” (Clarksburg, MD USA)
vivid, explicit, inventive and engrossing…with fangs on it!
Rage blatantly gawks at the darker side of our modern world and draws biblical parallels, using vampires. He mixes respectable dark poetic prose. —-D. Gorman “Crystalline Structure Moon”
