|the dark fiction of rodolphus|
A savage, violent, blood-drenched world produces the most terrifying villains. The universe answers with heroes and antiheroes in the cosmic conflict between evil and good. Flashing swords, rushing war speeders, poison, peril, giants, vampires, fighters and evangelists, Blackguard and fallen angels, Wolf and Bear, resounding with the clash of steel upon steel, the screams of the dying, and the faint blast of distant horns: it is a very dark world, but in steel halls of gloom, beauty yet survives. AnimalHeart, not for the faint of heart. A Rodolphus masterpiece.
The savage and blood-drenched contest continues in Book 2 of the AnimalHeart Trilogy. Harrison Christopher slowly dissolves as Wolf emerges, or as the Blackguard have named him, AnimalHeart. Heretic or hero, Wolf just might be more than a match for the great evangelist, Rettlaw Neslar, even if Bear is forming an unholy union with King Jim. Sliver and snake, demon and dragon, speeder and fallen angel, AnimalHeart Book 2 rockets toward its bloody conclusion. It is a very dark world, but in steel halls of gloom, beauty yet survives. AnimalHeart, not for the faint of heart. Book two of the Rodolphus masterpiece trilogy. Book 3 to be released soon.
A wild and rambunctious visitation to that legendary knoll in what just could be the most accurate depiction of the Custer massacre, except for the gleaming and well-oiled pair of anachronistic .357 pistols, that is. Earth Mother and Daughters, over-pumped cueball torpedo assassins, what just might be a were-hyena, time travel, and the edgy dark humor of Rodolphus make for a frenzied, page-turning, entertaining read. George Armstrong Custer comes to vivid light and life. Storyteller's Last Stand is dark and scary and funny, and very well might be the ultimate last stand for storytellers the world over.
When Kory began his bizarre game of sexual one-upmanship, he never bargained on the ultimate price he and Clarence would pay, nor the terror that would relentlessly pursue them. Strange beings rustle through the dark woods and the painting of Natasha seems to breathe and move. The dark and angry eyes of the wolf draw near, guilt personified, and savage justice approaches. Justice draws nigh, and horror. Still, there might yet be time for a little dryad love. Rodolphus wrote "The Wolf Doth Grin" at the age of 21. Now for the first time in e-read, the dark romantic horror that is both hilarious and terrifying.
The Wolf Doth Grin
Fang & Claw - Tooth & Nail
the short fiction
by Rodolphus and Douglas Christian Larsen
Rodolphus and Larsen, together in one book for the very first time. Although very different writers, these two storytellers stir emotions, produce chills, and introduce people we soon know and love (and sometimes hate and fear). Collected here are such singular works as Fearsweat, wherein a supernatural stalker threatens an entire town. In My Father: The Killer, we meet a young man who has always believed the worst about his father, a famed terrorist. Interstate Chimesaccompanies twins completing their separate destinies outside of time and space. We enter an amazing little girl's creative genius in Four-Leaf Clovers. And for a dark laugh (and scream) we ride along with The Dread Cowboy. Included herein is the unfinished Rodolphus master-work, the novella Contest Darkly which taps into the incredible world of Larsen's Vanya Song (a novel 40 years, and counting, in the making). Rodolphus and Larsen, like coffee and cream, or hemlock and wine, we experience a world incredibly dark, yet vividly bright.
