From the Author

This one is not out of print kids -- you want this book, go buy it now again On CreateSpace.  I get paid more per book when bought through there anyway.  Sleep tight and pleasant nightmares.   This is noted for When Angels Wept Blood and Revisiting The Loss Of Blood with very controversial stories in the beginning and end of the book.   I open the thing up with The Fandom Writer and this is a version known as The Crooked Man edit and the one on Tripod is the bullet in the head edit -- this book will say "F**k You"

About the Author

Pacione re-introduces Dirty Black Winter with an introduction that reflects writing Legend Keeper, Collectives In A Forsaken Metascape and Suburbanite's Confessional. (the second collection he's also did this) and his new collection as he speaks of the anthologies he's overseeing. He said to Tabetha Jones the only way he will do this is if he draws the cover himself but that roster wouldn't want anything to do with a very raw project. He's edited nine anthologies, and some of them are back online -- he's got anthologies one, five, and six along with eight and nine back online. He's getting ready to release anthology number 11 and waiting for the rest of the tenth.
     Pacione shows the hopefuls how it's done with this collection. Find him on http://np1976.codexed.com. He's going to show the masses how it's done and takes you to school. He's been writing since 1990 and being born in 1976, he outlived Robert E. Howard, and a few others who had died under 40. He was 34 when he did this collection and the introduction is a new introduction that reflects the new collection and Legend Keeper's existence. This is the fourth book by the Elder Statesmen. So welcome to the pitch black circus that becomes the horror within his ghoulish ideas.
     He got mad when Faith World Outreach got on him for going to Iron Maiden and listen to Megadeth openly. They even got on him about going to college to take Philosophy as he wrote within his testimony, Suburbanite's Confessional. This book will show the stories which he wrote when he got pissed at God. He speaks how one of them lied to his face with a smile when he clearly said he had A.D.H.D. Bob Beeman had written the book what if you went back in time and meet your younger self.
     Pacione did quite a few stories like this. Legend Keeper is his mind at 28 in his 12-13 year old body; that dark archaic tone Pacione used in Wandering In Darkness. Using what is called as the Roman a Clef device. Wandering In Darkness when revised reflects The Cabbie Homicide, The Pattern of Diagnosis and Library of Bones. The unholy manuscript in the story was Cabbie. Hands down his darkest and contains some harsh stories herein; writing hardcore shit since age 14. The seeds for the testimony is Revisiting the Loss of Blood as he found their photos.

In the about the authour section for this book - " Pacione shows the hopefuls how it's done with this collection."

He doesn't.

Trust me. He doesn't.

This book is an object lesson in how not to do it. How not to plot a story. How not to use the English language. How not to create characters or any form of discenable narrative.

If you want to read these stories, a quick internet search on the titles will show you where they're posted online for free by the author himself. Don't waste your money on buying this poorly formatted, badly packaged, badly written mess.
