Nine stories, nine demons, nine authors. Read more [...]

The City of Hell Chronicles Volume One edited by Colin F. Barnes

Its diabolical influence has turned ordinary citizens into torturers, debased slaves, lunatics and zealots. Since I started The Eloquent Page, I have reviewed a couple Read more [...]
