Book Description

Does this scene from a 50's horror movie sound familiar? Teenaged kids come running into the sheriff's office, only to get kicked out from there when they tell the law officer in charge that they had seen a monster?

Sheriff Clayton Harris, however, is the exception that confirms the rule. If any kids entered his office telling him such farfetched tales, he would listen.

Watch as Sheriff Harris, in a curious role-reversal of the 50's movies and the vampire tale, is now the only one able to see the obvious clues. Strange happenings have been taking place in his small home town: a corpse with strange marks on its neck, completely bled to death. Two pale looking strangers that seem to have very sharp teeth. Then key people in town start to disappear and grow a fondness to sleep in dark places.

Luckily, one of the sharp-teethed strangers is on Harris' side.

Come inside and meet sheriff Harris and Sherwin Williams, the sheriff/vampire duo that joins efforts to save the imperiled town of Nosfort from its impending doom!

3.0 out of 5 stars Who you gonna call? Sherwin Williams, of course! September 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Edwin has woven two twisted tales of rogue vampires trying to make a hive in the small northeastern town of Nosforts, Massachusetts. The first story starts when a young boy playing alone in the woods, poking dead animals with a pointy stick, comes across a dead mans body. He reports this to the town sheriff Clayton Harris. Sheriff Harris must employ the help of Sherwin Williams, a new stranger in town who happens to be from the Vampiric High Council, to save his town. In the second story young girls start disappearing; this is not a story for the faint of heart. Clayton Harris has to ask for help from his now vampire friend, Sherwin Williams, again. Edwin has woven 2 very unique tales full of horror and suspense.

Edwin lives in Venezuela, and English is not his native language, he has done a pretty good job setting this story in the small town of Nosforts, Massachusetts. With the horror story aside, you definitely get that small hometown feel. Despite the editing issues (which the author is aware of and is working to remedy), Edwin has two very unique stories.

More About the Author

Hello, my name's Edwin Stark, and I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. That's South America for the few geographically-challenged ones out there. I suppose that somehow the stork had just stumbled out from a pub while it was delivering me, (it was confused to say the least) and mishandled my humble persona, leaving me stranded in this unlikely place.

Having German ancestry, I spoke that language as a toddler, but my Mom had the misconception that I'd fit better here if I spoke Spanish, so that tongue was lost during my growing years. I grew up dreaming crazy tales and was my teacher's pet when it came to composition class--but not in deportment: that was for certain--and as I grew up I tried to get noticed as a writer by submitting to every magazine and writing contest available in my home country. No such luck; the publishing market in Venezuela is utterly locked out: you can only see your words in print if you're already a notorious politician or a TV celebrity. Since I wasn't in the inclination of becoming a serial murderer to achieve notoriousness and get published, the need to rethink the approach to my writing career became a must.
Eventually, I decided to switch languages and start writing in English. I was already proficient in that language... but was I good enough to tell stories in that fashion?

I then started to write short stories, effectively dumping my native language. I wrote nearly 200 short stories during a period of about eighteen months, slowly learning the nuances of story-telling in another language than your own. I already had the benefit of having the knack of telling a tale; I only had to adjust. 190 of them short tales certainly sucked; 10 were really neat, but the important thing was the learning process. These ten tales eventually made it into Cuentos, the short story collection which became my third book. I succeeded so well in tearing myself apart from Spanish, that almost everyone I meet online says: "I CAN'T BELIEVE ENGLISH ISN'T YOUR FIRST LANGUAGE!"

So far, I wrote four books: AI Rebellion, a rather preachy cyberpunk thriller that still shows the struggle of switching languages (and I only recommend people to read it if they're on an archeological mood, as in if they're interested in seeing my progress as a writer), Eco Station One, a very bizarre and funny satire, the aforementioned Cuentos, and The Clayton Chronicles, a rather cookie-cut vampire tale. All these are available for the Kindle reader on Amazon, in paperbacks and all e-book formats in Smashwords.


"The characters of 'Cuentos' display believable characteristics that gently lead the reader along a path to gradually but willingly leave reality at the door. Before long, readers become part of the action -- whether it is in the darkening sewers of Nosfort, Massachusetts or beneath a bulbous fruit tree in a different reality -- and cannot put down the book."
