A Word from the Author

Author Samir Karimo pictureIn this book, which is the english version of the portuguese and spanish ones, I tried to create something different. Through the book you will find new words, and other strange things, even the title is SOBRENATURAL and not Supernatural because I wanted to make this book more exotic. The book cover was made by the ESFS Awards winner JUAN MIGUEL AGUILERA. By using characters well known by the reader you have to imagine that you are having a dream, or nightmare, in which nothing is normal, rather is “out of natural”. Although the stories are mostly of the flash type, there are two bigger and they are “Valkyrie” in which I make a kind of tribute to ancient Indian, Greek stories. It’s a story about a man who buys a damned house in which lives a she-demon, an IBlisia, who wants to get his body, soul and aura in order to get younger. But to fight her, his aura will search from sorcerers and will try to get a special pill to revert the “statueing” process. The main character calls Vikramodisseus who is a tribute to Vikram, from Vikram and the vampire and Odysseus from Odyssey. The other big story is dedicated to D.Juan and it calls “Seducer’s Journal” in which the reader will find the origin of D.Juan’s Myth. He was a young man who sold his soul to a devil and so he had to sacrifice beautiful young woman whose blood he has to drink to feed a special parasite which lived in his brain.
Other flash stories are The unbearable lightness of being… in which a person has personality disorders and an HYDIAN (from Mr. Hyde) virus will try to make him more crazier.
In Dulcinea, what a hell of a girl imagine this girl having a flirt with a snake and living in a grave.
In Imagine a day… the final sentence of the text corresponds to the final sentence of the title and that’s why is a “overlapped” story , a real surrealistically one in which you will find Oscar Wilde as D.Juan’s attorney and literature’s undertakers and other strange characters searching for the true about what is Literature.
In Sideral santa claus and Christmas golden drop, based on jason’s golden fleece, Santa Claus will search for the golden drop to restore the Christmas spirit. To do it he has to speak with the three Kings’ cousins who have the special Christmas ingredients.
In Harlequin Carnavalin you will find the Mardi Gras Alien God who lands in Venice to better know our traditions, but in this special day he will find a special robotic woman who will seduce him.
About the pre texts, “a neologism specially created to this book” there are several ones.
The first is “damned words”, a tribute to kafka stories in which Words are chasing people.
In Shadows, the Umbrae (alien shadows) are searching recipients for their body.
In Destination we find a strange talk between Life and Death.
In Pain an alien species will try to invade us through our kidney.
In Vetala we will find out the true story about the dinosaur’s extinction and how it’s related to vampyres (vetala, sanscrit word to vampire) and count’s Dracula armor.
in little red riding wood and Frankenstein finally those characters will reveal who actually they are, one is descendent of a werewolf and other will travel through dimensions to get his body parts back.
In killing nose, an ancient alien king will ally to Jack the ripper to try to invade our dimension.
In killing selfies Death himself appears and criticizes our way of living and “shining ” in social networks
Finally in Divine Musick dedicated to my muse we find a young lady, a “musick” who travels around the cosmos in searching for the ideal music and people.
And I was almost forgotten there’s a character called Introduction which remind us Fernando Pessoa, Pirandello and Unamuno’s characters. Those three are one of the source of my inspiration to this book.

Hounded 2 is an explicit horror – full of spattered slaughter, love and loss, fast-moving action, and a maze of unexpected destruction, that is sure to keep you turning pages late into the night. In this, her second novel, Ellie Douglas proves there’s plenty of rot to ooze out of the zombie genre.

Who is left?

The book series ‘Hounded’ and ‘Hounded 2,’ is not for the faint hearted! It is a genre I thoroughly enjoy, Horror. Twisting the genre on it’s axis to bring you something so different, it will alter your mind.

In Hounded 2, you follow Bellamy in his travels, searching for his twin brother Calloway. Moving at a torrid pace, with everything fans crave and much more. With mercy killings, so unexpected it will drive you to tears. Plenty of ultra-violent militia groups that will have you praying for mercy.

Witty dialogue, superbly crafted action sequences, it will be like watching a movie. Hounded 2, is an extremely explicit horror, full of spattered slaughter, love and loss. It is a fast moving action novel, with a maze of unexpected destruction.

You’ll learn how to survive the worst kind of zombies that ever existed. You’ll fall in love with the characters, and cry with them, laugh with them, and root for them. Everyone of these characters, will make you feel like you’ve known them for years.

I’ve been compared to the king, Stephen King, and Quintin Tarantino, that if they had a love child, that child was ‘ME.’

A Word from the Author

Who will survive?

I wrote the book series ‘Hounded’ because of my love of this genre, Horror. I wanted something horrific, and something that hadn’t ever been done before.

Writing a new twist on the horror genre of zombies. I had to stand out, to be different from the rest. So I did just that, invented a virus that infected K9’s, man’s best friend, turned so vicious, that stopping them is near impossible.

In this, a two part book series, you get to follow Bellamy Foster, as he searches for his twin brother Calloway. Travel with them, across America, suffer losses, gain new loves, and battle the undead.

Nothing can prepare the survivors for what comes next. Will Bellamy find Calloway in time?

Hounded, with the deadly virus aptly named SB-16, is the horror of all horrors, to give you nightmares. SB-16, is the deadliest virus ever known, to mankind. Affecting over 80% of the worlds population.

Those that get the virus are put into a deep coma, and the dogs are being turned into rabid vicious zombies. Now, those zombie dogs are on the loose, and on the rampage, hungry, blood thirsty, and will stop at nothing to get what they want. Your flesh, and bones.

The survivors are left to struggle, to keep themselves and their families alive.

Can anyone survive this zombie apocalypse?

Or will the world perish, right before your very eyes.
